Seriously people... Calm down.. As a catholic, I can say to you with confidence that EVERYTHING is a matter of opinion when it comes to this topic. I choose to believe in god because I want to.. That is my own choice. I could give two ***** whether my friends believe in god or not, nor will I try to shove religion down their throat. I was raised a Catholic, that's just how it is. I don't even care about the religion bashing that goes on this site... Sometimes it is well deserved. Plus, you need to laugh at yourself on occasion. It's similar to calling yourself fat.. Make fun of your mistakes and move on, you know? The majority of religious people aren't nutjobs, and a good majority of atheists just keep to themselves. The only reason everyone thinks differently is because the obnoxious members of either group are the ones parading around making asses of themselves.

TL;DR I am Catholic and I don't give a **** what your religion is or if you even have one. If you're nice to me, we're cool. That's all there is to it.

* Read this, there'll be a good point to it.

''a good majority of atheists just keep to themselves''

Religious people shouldn't always feel personally attacked when someone challenge their religion, I consider myself an anti-theist, I don't just believe God is non existent, I also feel religion has a bad impact on the world and should be removed sooner rather than later... This being said, the reason I challenge religious individuals is not for some sadistic purpose, I actually and genuinely care. My last girlfriend was a serious catholic (though pretty secular when it comes to alcohol and sex), so despite what you might think, most of us ''loud atheists'' don't walk around wishing you dead.

I have another friend though, one of those I consider my best actually... But there's one thing that nags me.

He said that, despite him not wanting us to, people who don't believe in Jesus etc will probably go to hell, I mean... This is kinda what the bible says.

Even though he knew of how cruel a fate I was going to suffer in the end, he have made no attempt yet to try and change my view and save me from eternal torment.

Am I supposed to feel glad he doesn't shove his religion down my throat, I think not, and to be honest, I think the ''don't shove your religion down someones throat'' is a bad way to argue, and I have never heard any atheist who was serious on this matter of God who said that, what you may have heard was the dislike of the indoctrination of children.

In this new day and age, there is less of a stress on all religion in society. Granted, it's still there. It is not dominant like it used to be though. I believe your friend is like me. I believe that the god we believe to be so great and powerful is also very forgiving. So forgiving that he would accept all those with good intentions at heart into heaven. Not all people who follow a religion get an instant pass into heaven. You have to truly be a kind person, live a charitable life and truly feel remorse for any sin you commit for it to be forgiven. But as long as you live life fully, keep a solid set of morals and have good intentions in what you do, I believe god will accept you whether you believe in him or not. The god I believe in won't deny the many doctors or scientists who do not believe in him. They've saved thousands of lives with surgery and medication. As long as they have the aspects of a good person, I honestly think that god's standards are flexable. Being only 18, I cannot hope to answer all of your questions. Again, this is all my opionions and I stick to them. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Idk about that religion seems to dominate the Republican party thus making them look like ass holes because their "religious morals" decide everything they do.
I was a pretty devout athiest but lately I've started thinking that maybe there is a God, the chances of all of this around us happening just seem impossible. The kind of God I'm thinking of is a alien race and all of this is some kind of computer simulation.

There are idiots on both sides of the fence. If either of is are mature enough we would respect each others decisions. Some people can't look past the bad apple ruining the bunch.
