    Yeah, the cacophony of it all is hard to tolerate.

    Cute line, but replace 'god' with unicorns, pixies, leprechauns, or any other folklore and it's just ridiculous.

    There are archaeological remains that attest to the accuracy of Leprechaun stories?

    People have sacrificed their lives for their belief in Leprechauns?

    The Romans hung crucified (and still alive) Leprechauns on fire, on street lampposts, all throughout towns to warn others about the dangers of being Leprechauns?

    Or maybe it was unicorns you were referring to.

    Well if people need Karma or religion to NOT be pieces of shit, stands to reason they are pieces of shit deep down. If the only thing keeping them civil is an external factor containing their inner self.

    Well, if you are faithless, you live in the moment, because tomorrow isn't.
    And if you are faithful, you believe that behaviors that reward the common good, and others, tho not own, also will be rewarded or at least advance a cause greater than self.
    So ... in a way yes. I think that is arguable. But that's not a point I was making and I don't need to prove it.

    I was asking ...

    Thats a sad life you live. Can you see how scary it would be to have people with your beliefs in charge of government/public policy?

    Ruling the heathens that know no better so youll do whats best.

    Detach yourself from yourself to a place of objectivity and think about that for a minute.

    I would bet Ive helped more people in this world than you have and I have zero faith.

    And faithless people live in the moment. Did you make that up or read it on a Chick Filet cup?

    Religion-less does not equate to faithless. I have faith in a lot of things. Just not omnipotent beings.

    Not really sure, but he clearly hasn't read the good book.

    Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    Current right wing Evangelical crop in power and or giving fuel to the people in power don't give two fucks about either of those items. Actually yes they do. They are hell-bent on making sure that both populations are treated like shit. Which is my point. So called "Christians" are doing more harm than good right now. It's the Billy Graham and Mike Pence crowds.
