The best a person can do is to gently guide a person away from ignorance and stupidity, if that fails brutal honesty is all that is left. Stupid is stupid. I need not apologize for pointing that out. Your request has been the gold standard for thousands of years and yet in the end, people ignore that because they follow the masses who they agree with. You cannot run from the masses when it is dangerous to do so.
A humans desire to live is exceeded only by their willingness to die for another. Even god cannot equal this magnificent sacrifice. No god has the right to judge them.-first tenant of the Panotheust

To me the question of god is not about spirituality. But rather about epistemology. My knownledge is only provisional subject to constant change as I ingest new information. So far i have not been convinced of the existence of any fundamentally different substance to your everyday matter. For spirituality i got existentialism, art and 1p-lsd.

I agree with you that religion is a coping mechanism for death. Also it is used to control people.

Whats wrong with controlling people?

The golden rule is part of secular philosophy.

I made a post awhile back about how secular philosophy works. You can dig through my "likes" if you want to find it. I'm not going to waste time re-explaining it to someone who clearly came here with an agenda, though.

I've stopped caring what people believe or don't believe. After all, roughly half of all while men believe the Trumpster Fire is going to save democracy from the evil clutches of *gasp* "that woman"!

" One constantly blaming the other for failing to have 'proof' or failing to meet some requirement and thus you become confused, frustration and its a constant struggle to lay claim to whose right and wrong. I'm sure I speak truth, and I say to you to hope yo quell your hearts only if momentarily to hear an old fools ramblings, but do you know of yin and yang? "

Thats a preacher talking.

I sure don't need THIS YAHOO...
