that makes no sense. can you explain? how is that the same reason?

by putting yourself in a "random needy person's shoes", you become humble and won't take things for granted. Food becomes something that you would enjoy more and appreciate.

now tell me, how does that compare to worshipping a God/allah that does not exist and there's no evidence for?!

By worshipping a "god that does not exist" you become more humble. The faith you have in this thing humbles you, and you enjoy what you feel it has blessed you with even more

By worshipping a non-existant God, you become humble? lol
wow, your logic is twisted! lol

but then again, i believed in the same BS for most of my life up until last year so i guess i can't blame you...

maybe one day, through education and free-thinking, you'll realize that it's better to live by the truth than some imaginary father figure who lives in the skies.

like i said, your twisted logic never ceases to amaze me.
Things are either True, or not.
The Truth is absolute! just because someone (a believer) is delusional, doesn't mean that the 'thing' they believe in is the Truth!

i don't expect you to understand.


ps. Antlered Chamataka, don't try to hard....you might pop a vein in that tiny brain
