    people try to preach to you? how would they even know? usually most everyone is just assumed to be christian unless they say otherwise.
    You mean you have never seen the door to door guys, the on the street preachers or that people that go to schools and colleges to tell you go to there church?

    never happens to me and i live in georgia
    Probably because in georgia everyone is the same religion. In states like californa there is many different faiths so there is more incentive to bring people to theirs.

    Good for you.

    but the fact that you still equate 'convincing someone that their religion is wrong' with 'crushing their happiness' means that you consider religion to be a significant source of happiness. And even if that still wasn't the case, the comment isn't about you at this point, it's about that particular arguement in general.
    your heartless

    if you know someone believes strongly in something which you can't disprove (religion according to yall has no proof, so how can you DISprove it?) why would you try and convince them it's wrong?

    Actually you have a lot of diversity in Atlanta which is where I'm going to school. About 30-45 mins south (where I'm from) It's still fairly diverse and suburbia.

    Actually you don't have to refute proof to prove something is false. Using any type of logical argument can do that. Simply showing that something doesn't has proof disproves it or explaining why it isn't logical to believe in something disproves it. I hate how some people act like not having proof makes a belief better because you can't "disprove it".

    Never had Mormons come to your door? Well your lucky I have them come almost every week.

    Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, I see them all the time. If my neighborhood wasn't so far out of the way they would no doubt be coming down my street as well. Even when I was visiting my grandparents in New Jeresy they'd come by at least once a week.

    My opinion on the matter is everyone should be free to believe what they want to believe, just don't preach to me, I have a Mormon friend that will sometimes just look at me and say "You will see one day, the day where the lion will lay with the lamb." (or something along those lines) and it pisses me off so much when he says it.

    Because; something isn't true because you can't prove it, you have to prove it for it to be true, or it's automatically presumed false for the time being.

    I had some Jehovah's witnesses come to my door the other day, and the first thing they said was "Hi, we're from so-and-so church and we're here to talk to you about who really rules the world!"

    It struck me as unbelievably shortsighted. They were pretty much 15-16 year olds, too.

    yeah i'm not in the business of hurting kids feelings but I would find it pretty funny if you were knocking on someone's door expecting to tell him of the powers of god and he comes running at you shouting '"JESUS WAS A LIE! HOW CAN A VIRGIN GIVE BIRTH? THE EARTH IS NOT 10,000 YEARS OLD"

    one time he had to give a bible away for his church, after I refused to take it, he threw it at me when I walked away, yet I'm apparently still going to one of the Mormon heavens, rapists are also allowed in, but murderers aren't unless they were drunk, on drugs, or told to kill the person.

    He threw a book at you for no reason?

    Forget all this mormon crap, but seriously.. what man throws a book...
