View Full Version : sides of the coin

I'm an atheist although i do appreciate what god represents in a religious persons life.
There is an ugly side to this coin however because the people that caused this to happen did it in the name of religion. Being atheist i really don't understand why catholics, jews, christians, pentacostles, etc can't pray in the same church. But then i can see the alienation that people that believe in god put onto one another because of the variations they put on their version of god. The terrorists version of god was allah (spelling?)

sadly people can create miracles in the name of god just as well as they can create atrocities.
