This country has grown as a Christian nation. The bible has been, and still is, used in about every public ceremony we conduct. Nearly all governmental swearing-ins use a bible as the testament of truth. We see the bible in the funeral services conducted by nearly all the fraternal organizations.

I believe it will be a long time before things change, but I do believe they will change. Science has provided us with provable examples of the creation of the universe and all living things. The Big Bang and evolution should be part of everyone's education. When mankind finally accepts the fact that there is no supernatural, loving God out there who has control of everything, we will have to take another look at the religious texts.

Religious "faith" is so powerful that it makes men willing to die. The faithful have been killing one another for over two thousand years. The faithful on both sides in our Civil War thought God was on their side.

Question: How does your religious "faith" affect your decisions?
