does that mean that a man without a traditional religious belief; one that does not beleive in a supreme being, traditional religious values and a strong compassion and love of a god, is an evil man or a man without a soul or a man that has no meaning, existence or direction in life? does a jew, a christian, a hindu, a buddhist, a muslim, a mormom, a baptist rise to an elevated level in life above the man that leads a good life, shows compassion to his fellow man, pays his taxes, consideate to his family and his neighbors but does not adopt a traditional religion or beleive in god? is the man that leads a good life yet does not beleive in god not worthy over a man that beleives in god but leads a bad life and harms others? as mohandas gandi quotes, "one's own religion is after all a matter between oneself and one's maker and on one elses." i can re-define gandhi's quote and that would be "one's own life and belief is his own and no one elses and it is between oneself only."

"Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned." Author Unknown
"The fact that a believer is happier than a sceptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality." George Bernard Shaw

"What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." Bertrand Russell
"Where knowledge ends, religion begins." Benjamin Disraeli
"The most ridiculous concept ever perpetrated by Homo Sapiens is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of the Universes, wants the sacharrine adoration of his creations, that he can be persuaded by their prayers, and becomes petulant if he does not recieve this flattery. Yet this ridiculous notion, without one real shred of evidence to bolster it, has gone on to found one of the oldest, largest and least productive industries in history." Robert Heinlein
"I do not think that the real reason why people accept religion is anything to do with argumentation. They accept religion on emotional grounds.

"Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich." Napoleon Bonaparte
