    Honestly, there is no reason or facts or proof to back it up. Is it just fear of death?

    Troll thread? Anyway, it seems like 'The man in the sky' was a device used to introduce children and simpletons to the concept of a greater spiritually. A lot of people hold on to that idea throughout their lives because they lack introspection or don't continue to think about and analyze it. It's just easier to keep the concept simple. And it's easier to mock if it remains simple. As far as an actual faith in a larger spirituality, everybody believes in something. A belief that there is no god is a belief nonetheless. It seems that you have to fall on one side of this system, whether you want to or not. I don't care what you think, just don't preach your fundamentalism to me. Snotty celebrity atheists are just as bad as televangelists. Maher=Van Impe

    I think some people need a reason for, and a meaning to life. A higher purpose. Assurance that we will go to wonderful place when we die.



    Personally, I don't think I'm any different from the squirrel running around in my backyard right now.
