Have to admit, I agree with Dr. Bob

I always find it so amuzing that anyone could have the audacity to claim to know and understand the "truth". These people should realize that there are millions (billions?) of such so-called "truths" out there, all in some way contradicting one another, and yet, strangely, all quite similar in essence. Religion is man-made; and Man is fallible.
There is a book by Sigmund Freud: "The Future of an Illusion". I wish it were somehow mandatory that all people suffering any kind of religious dogma read it. In it, Freud sets forth the argument that religions arose out of early man's attempts to "deal" with our helplessness against nature. From an anthropological perspective(even taking the "creation" theory into account), it is clear that all religions have "evolved" out of one another in time, and theoretically they are all, in essence, the same religion. "God" has many names... and many faces. To see the beauty in all of them, I think, is what "He" would have intended. I know that I, for one, would rather be damned to Hell than to worship a God who was so selfish and naive to demand that everyone only believe in Him and call Him by one particular name. The Bible was written by men. And, again, Man is fallible. Someday, I will get to writing this cartoon... in which "God" is looking down upon the world, thinking "You fools! You've all got it wrong... because you've all got it right!"
