I figured the question was coming, so I decided to be pro active.
I like agnostics. I see them as open minded individuals with an insatiable curiosity; unwilling to settle for half an answer.
Others see us as namby pamby wafflers who can't make up our minds.
Would the world be a better place if we gave up and chose a side in the religious debate?
Yes my God let's get rid of those people who are unconvinced by texts that are thousands of years old yet still able to keep an open mind just in case.
The world needs MORE people who are completely convinced that they are right and are completely closed minded to new developments...
Oh and we should get rid of all political moderates as well!
LONG LIVE EXTREMISM! MUHAHAHAHAH!!!!!
I actually think they're (or, rather, we're) the most likely to settle for "half an answer." A willingness to concede that we don't know everything does not prevent you from probing to understand as much as possible.
I think a quote from Bertrand Russell is appropriate here: "The fundamental cause of trouble in the world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt."
Take both side and make it into one complete understanding and there you would find Truth and you would no longer be agnostic, but stand for nor against either side.
This world is black and white. Either you're in or you're out.
You're either for us or agin us.
The last thing we need is more of these namby pampy indecisives who can't make up their damned overwrought minds.
I think the world would be a poorer place,if they were a minority
Emile, I tried. Really I did. But I found myself laughing so damn hard at the OP that I couldn't think of a single smart aleck remark...
Cags, Paul...have a sense of humor, guys. She's just funnin'.
Yeah I know. It's no sweat. My post wasn't directed Emile. But, was directed at Kess.
Aha! Then please pardon me. In that case, I happen to agree.
She is not... she needs beaten with a wet rope.
Melissa, come on. I'm Catholic. I perform self flagellation on a daily basis, dontcha know?
Yes SELF flagellation... According to the law of averages anything you do by yourself can only be made better with a partner... or two.
There is that. Hmmm. Cags, if the wet rope is Melissa's thing, can I get some more ideas here?
Well, let's see. Since, I'm pretty sure you don't like kinky stuff, how about a wet noodle?
Who says I don't like kinky stuff? And, hey, a wet noodle is pretty kinky depending on how/where you use it, Cags!
Well let's just say I'm talented and there might be a slim possibility you'd never go back to your husband.
Remember mo that the nun's outfit is for me too.
Only you get that Melissa and I would rather you didn't spread our somewhat public matters around all the forums. Not everyone pays attention to all posts.
@Motown- You're welcome.

This seems to be an issue. There is a forum beating Christians over the head so I decided why not be fair?

Would The World be A Better Place With Out Religion?I see all the fighting over Jesus and religion and I often wonder if the world wouldn't be a better place with out religion. After all no one has ever proved that God exists have they? What do you think?

What do you do personally to make society a better place? What do you think others should do?Today many people blame others for the decay in moral society. However, these same individuals do not accept responsibility for their negative actions. What do you think needs to be done to restore...
