Religion • Brain-Bending: Atheist and Christian Views on Life Compared

Are Christians and atheists at opposite ends of the pole or is it a simple matter of up and down? Is one system at the top of the pyramid or the bottom of it? This has been argued for decades. At last, the answer will finally be settled.

Both sides use the the very same sentences to explain their philosophy.  For this fascinating revelation read this from top to bottom:

                                  AN ATHEIST’S VIEW ON LIFE

                            I will live my life according to these beliefs
                                      God does not exist
                                  It is just foolish to think
                                That there is a God with a cosmic plan
        That an all powerful God brings redemption and healing to the pain and suffering in the world
                                  Is a comforting thought however.
                                    Is only wishful thinking.
                        People can do as they please without eternal consequences
                                      The idea that
                                    I am deserving of Hell
                                      Because of sin
                              Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
                                “The more you have, the happier you will be”
                                Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
                                      In a world with no God,
                                There is freedom to be who I want to be
                                        But with God
                                      Everything is fine
                                    It is ridiculous to think
                                    I am lost and in need of saving

                                    A CHRISTIAN’S VIEW ON LIFE

                              NOW READ THIS VIEW FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP
