WIse words Fellows - this is what it all boils down to.
I see life a bit like a Day at the Races (not the Marx brothers film....well...maybe a bit) - you bet on your horse.....life is the race and death is the finishing line.
The horses have different names: Christianity, Islam, Atheism, Don't Care, Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll and many hybrids of all.
You just choose your horse.
You can choose based on the colour, how attractive it is, your 'reason', what your pastor told you or for no reason at all except irrationality....stick a pin. YOu can even change horses in midstream.
But we all bet.
And at the finish-line we'll know.
The only thing I don't get and which spoil the enjoyment of the race for me is: when people keep telling me they KNOW their horse will win and they KNOW my choice is a stupid one (not you Fellows).
Nobody knows. We make our choice based on personal experience that is unique to us....and no-one can make that choice for us - those that try to could maybe better focus on their own choices....
If someone tells me my choice is crap I just find it funny.... if I didn't like baiting atheists and conservatives so much I probably would never mention anything like this at all and talk about football instead.
