and let's be honest here...i thought the comment made in the OP about why there has to be a purpose.was funny...and disagreed with it... you responded with an absolute of Divine creation has no purpose.
..the God complex belongs to you.
Well really, I happen to believe it more likely that God was created in man's image. Because the human body is kind of a mess in many ways. If we were created in His image, then he would be a very imperfect being. Or maybe he has use for an appendix?
I've never known atheism or agnosticism to prevent being in loving relationships.
Actually I was saying that the guy that made the quote in the article meant that. I thought that was his intent, when you seemed to indicate otherwise.
