    I must agree with Ed...that's like asking a four year old how they can take Santa seriously...
    I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. I have seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [points to head] and here [points to heart] and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

    I think we can generalise this thread to "How can anyone take X seriously?" "By believing in it."

    well take it seriously as a religion at least. it is obviously one of the best run businesses of all time. probably the best.

    It's your fault for making such a stupid topic.

    By believing in it. How are you not getting this?

    Everybody believes in things. Some believe in religion, some in science, some in both, and some in neither. Belief justifies these things to the believer; that's why they take it seriously.

    you do not even understand why i am saying catholicism is ridiculous. it has nothing to do with a belief in abrahamic religions.

    I doubt anyone else knows why you're calling it ridiculous. Come, tell us what you mean so the we may partake in your enlightenment (not actually sarcasm. It just seemed to fit the mood).

    Unless, of course, you've just said why you think it's ridiculous. See, this is me getting the wrong meaning from a sentence.

    Why do you think it is unrelated to other religions dating back to the same period and before that seem to all belong together as one group (namely the Judeo-Christian faiths)?

    it has nothing to do with believing in christianity. it ha mores to do with taking catholicism seriously as a religion, when they have done things suck as bought their own country, and have their own bank will billions of dollars of profitable investments and most likely had dealings with nazi germany.

    Plenty of obvious reasons Miss Raichu...

    Belief. Seriously, there is absolutely nothing more to it than that.

    these topics aren't worth shit!

    people argue, get angry at each other and nothing changes. this thread is a waste of time. if someone wants to believe in something then who are we to judge that! so everyone stop bickering and get over it!

    and that came from a staunch atheist.

    It is not at all hard to get the big picture here Ed. Tim is remarking about how ridiculous it is for people in today's society to follow the Catholic church and take it as a legitimate belief based on its past actions. The question is more rhetorical than anything really.

    And on a side note, lordnugget is a great big homosexual.
