    No, come to think of it, God hasn't lied to me, and neither has the Bible. While some parts (such as the method of creation) are up to interpretation, there is not one flaw in truth in the whole Bible. And no, it's not just about a guy who rose from the dead a few thousand years ago. It's about a guy who's still around now. You're right, it is totally different believing your friends and stuff and beleiving a book. I can trust God to tell the truth even when nobody else does.

    AW,
    That's part of it. Did you do it out of sincerity or because that's just how it was supposed to be done?

    It hasn't lied to you because you base your beliefs on it.

    well, I was little and I really believed it. But like Frederick Douglass said (I got this from wikipedia)

    How? you can't see him, you can't joke around, you can't TALK with him, etc.
    If you ask me it's more like a relationship between you and yourself (and I do have a nice relationship with myself lol... sometimes I piss me off... but hey, it's me so I can't stay mad at myself for long)

    Well thats my point alpha. That you are correct in we beleve what we want to. Because there is no reason christians should beleve anything any more then hindus. They were more then likely raised that way and then continued to want to beleve in their "religion".

    My point is you can't have religion without wanting to believe. Soem religions just fit better and others (like mine) I came to conculsions through analasys of data. There by basing mine on Knowledge. Its not like scientists can see electons but we know they are there. So would it not be a belief that they exist even though we have knowledge about it?
