Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned.
“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” — Marcus Aurelius
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” – Seneca the Younger
I’m a adult. It’s not appropriate for me to have imaginary friends. People keep telling me to have faith. To me “Faith” means believing in something which you know is not true.

Very well said, sir. My sentiments precisely. I would rather celebrate Yule on December 21st, so I wish you a good Yule.
“Tis better to celebrate the return of the sun, than the birth of a Nazarene carpenter”. – John Wells.

That’s the best statement I’ve ever read–your last paragraph. If you don’t mind, I’ll keep that as an arrow in my quiver the next time some religious type asks me if I’ve accepted Jesus as my personal saviour.

Faith is what keeps me going when despair is all around so don’t excpect me to agree with you.
I hope you and yours have a happy Christmas. – Keith.

I know why I have faith and why it’s gotten stronger.
