46. There is a line - If you can propose something without proof then you can negate it without proof.

Something like that - anyway.

I was watching all those people at the Vatican and they all had this look
of accomplishment and relief on their faces because a new pope was chosen.

Then I thought of all those people spending time praying and giving money to the church.

Then I thought, what is the difference between that and throwing a virgin into a volcano?

And you're right - that's just an opinion - but, religion is just an opinion, too.

The biggest waste I see right now are the people in the middle east who are killing each
other because they have some religious belief. They suppress women. They rape and
they blow themselves up and they even offer to pay money to kill people that make
cartoons using their religious leaders likeness.

It gets to a point where I can't see the sense of supporting the whole institution.

There is a thought that if we take all the money that is spent on war that we will be able to
feed all the poor in the world. Apply that same idea to the money given to all the religions of the world.
I would be willing to bet that the religions pull in more money that the war machines.

If people want to go to church it is their right to do so.
The same goes for those people who want to vote Republican't
Same idea but one or both ideas piss a lot of people off.

What's the answer?

Live and let live?
