I don't care how you grew up. Whether you were force fed religion or grew up with none. Whether you grew to hate religion all together or you love the idea of it, but you think it isn't for you. Whether you respect it and would never take it away from someone, but you would also never attend religious related events. Anyone and everyone, in MY OPINION should be, at the very least, agnostic.
Why? Well, for the simple reason of admitting to the fact YOU DON'T KN OW EVERYTHING. From the moment of birth to the second you die you are constantly learning. You are always finding things out that you once did not know existed.
Everyone needs to accept the reality of life. There are things out there that we do not yet understand, and some things we may never understand. For example, I can't grasp the fact that there are people so willingly dumb in this world. I know it exists, but I just don't know how. So, until you KNOW because you have the PROOF that will end the religious debate forever, you DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE. It is PURELY only YOUR opinion on the matter. And, honestly I have no issue with other peoples opinions. I respect them, they let me learn new things, or realize just how much smarter I am compared to you. But, still, despite the fact that it is YOUR OPINION, WHY do you talk about the subject as if you KNOW?
Sure, confidence is a key trait in people that some people would kill to have. But you don't realize just how arrogant you sound when you act like you know something that you can't even begin to grasp mentally. The fact you are willing to say that God, or some deity, does not exist shows to the world that you have no real grasp on religion or the fundamental values they bring to those that don't abuse it. If you are unable to grasp religion mentally, why do you talk as if you know for a fact that there is no higher being? It makes no sense to me.
For that reason, I hate Atheists. Not because they don't believe in my religion, but because they are so arrogant to believe that they KNOW for a FACT despite having NO REAL EVIDENCE or PROOF that it doesn't exist. And, when I say I hate Atheists, I don't mean I hate them in terms of a person, but I hate them in terms of a belief system. I don't hate the people, I hate their mentality. I hate their arrogance. I hate their stubbornness. I hate their refusal to believe in something, or at least be open minded.
But, I guess it makes sense. If a person is unable to have faith in something, they would be a bad candidate for any religion, as religion is based off faith. If they can't believe in something in life, how could they ever believe in a religion and what they have to offer?
Now, as I ranted enough at the moment about Atheists, I want to talk about Agnostic folk. I love you guys. You are like the more mature Atheists. Instead of refusing to believe what every one says about religion, you stay open minded. You are willing to believe. You are willing to have faith. You don't mock others beliefs, because you are able to see the value in religion. You know there is a possibility that there IS some higher being because, as a human, we do not know everything.
Furthermore on this subject, who are you people to say it doesn't exist? Didn't realize you were born with infinite knowledge and that you know this. Didn't realize you checked and in fact saw there was no God in heaven. Didn't realize a person could be so stubborn. You have no real clue do you? You have no real solid evidence, do you? You are only going by what your faulty, obviously screwed up brain, is thinking, aren't you? You got no proof, so not one of you Atheists know for sure. Not one of you Atheists can even begin to know for sure. Finding an answer to whether there is a higher being is far out of your reach, as it takes understanding and a willing to learn, which you do not have.
