maybe try skipping the gratuitous "slam" on occasion (if you want a challenge, that is)

Let it go and take it as it comes. I might even get a bit philisophical about it and ponder what that belief did for me along the road to that discovery. All in all... I'd forgive myself and move on. I guess that's what my belief did for me. Good for you. It would be easier for me because I skipped that annoying interim "belief" step. :-) From: "TurquoiseBee turquoiseb@...

We non-theists wouldn't. It would have no impact on our lives whatsoever. If your answer to the question is "Yes," it seems to me that your faith in God is based on habit, neediness and fear, not on any kind of positive belief.
