Do you believe in God?

 If you believe in God then its like saying you believe in an imaginary friend.  Because that's all it is.  There is no proof and there never will be.  All there is is what there is..

I have been listening to the news about gay marriage and people quoting the Bible!  Why oh why are people believing in a story which dates back thousands of years?  Is everyone that naive?   I can't believe we as the human race haven't evolved as much as we should have.

Marriage is an old fashioned concept which was invented when life expectancy was just 40.  As we live twice that long the whole concept does not work. If you wait until you are about 40 before you get married you might stand a chance. In my parents era, women were taught to be housewives at school and expected to find a husband in their teens - this means spending the next 60 years with the same person. Sod that! I am so glad I was born in the 70's.  50% of marriages end in divorce.  The whole concept of marriage needs to be brought into the 21st century and that means for gays also.  If couples want to commit to each other they should be allowed regardless of what sex they or their partners are. I don't think you need a piece of paper and a church to do this, but if people want too then why shouldn't they be allowed.

I know I have some radical views and don't conform.  I don't believe in marriage under a church as such because I don't believe in God. If I ever meet anyone who I would want to stay with for the rest of my life I will just do that.  I will not be having any ceromony to prove it or show the rest of the world.  For me to stay with someone will be proof enough. But the odds are slim as the thought terrifies me.  I only feel secure when I am on my own doing my own thing in my own way.  That's my right and if people don't like it, that's their problem.

I am a Christian only because my parents Christened me.  I had no say in it, I was a baby.  But I have grown to not believe in any religion and to learn that religion is the cause of all problems in the world.  I did not impose any religion on my children which were born out of wedlock.  I am giving them their own choice on what they want to believe in. And if they have any common sense they certainly won't believe in any form of God and follow any religion.

Zeitgeist is far more believable than any religion and it makes perfect sense.   It is an eye opening movie on the symbolism found in Religion and its foundation based on ancient philosophies of Astrology.
