    I will live my life according to these beliefs.

    God does not exist

    It’s just foolish to think

    That there is an all knowing God with a cosmic plan

    That an all-powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world

    Is a comforting thought however

    It

    Is only wishful thinking

    People can do as they please without eternal consequences.

    The idea that

    I am deserving of hell

    because of sin,

    Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power.

    “The more you have, the happier you will be.”

    Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose

    In a world with no God

    There is freedom to be who I want to be

    But with God

    Life is an endless cycle of guilt and shame

    Without God

    Everything is fine

    It is ridiculous to think

    I am lost and in need of saving


    NOW....READ IT FROM THE BOTTOM UP.

    Did they keep it on FB? I put it up twice and both times it "disappeared," but I never got a notice saying it was removed. However, it had been on there and was seen as posted by myself and my husband checked it on his and it was there briefly, but then disappeared again.

    Very weird.

    If you copied and pasted it into a status, they automatically are deleted. IT's a new measure facebook is using to avoid spam. I copied and pasted it into a note and it's fine. You can get around this by typing something before and after the pasted quote.

    You can access "notes" on the left of your screen. This is how I published it on my facebook and it's fine.

    Yeah, I posted it on a board with a bunch of Atheist. I titled it that, "I Have Changed my Mind", then I put a wink at the bottom and said, ";) That is, if you read it from the bottom up." :laugh: Got me a discussion going too. :BangHead:
