Oh my gosh, what a lie. For Barry not to be able to engage in what has become a focal point of his life, the bashing of people who believe in God, and then to say that nothing would change for him?!
At the every least, he would have to find a new bashing outlet. Let's see. People who live in America. That one's already covered. People who live in the town or city he just left. Covered as well. People who have opinions, other than his. A big catchall, that's covered as well. I'm sure he'll come up with something. Or maybe he can write something about the Cathars, or maybe a science fiction story. Who knows. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <turquoiseb@...> wrote : From: "s3raphita@...

We non-theists wouldn't. It would have no impact on our lives whatsoever. Of course it would have no impact for non-theists! What a dumb comparison. The corresponding question for *non-theists* should be: "If you were to find out for sure that there IS a God, would you feel a sense of loss, as if your life had been diminished in some way or wasted not believing in one?" How would you answer that? Already answered in another thread -- absolutely nothing would change in my life.
