Insanity is believing your hallucinations. Religion is believing other people’s hallucinations. Too often, its adherents can’t face reality, and force others to play make-believe. *** Quite often, Christian Apologists don’t believe some or all of the problematic passages in the Bible.

They’re projecting their feelings about religion onto others. They’re assuming their experiences are the only experiences.
We all do it to some extent, but it’s important to recognize that just because someone requires god to be happy, that doesn’t mean that others do. I’m actually happier not believing in a god? What if I asked the militant religious: how you could be happy while believing in God?
People might think that’s funny. That it seems obvious how believing in God makes them happier.
It’s the same for me. Of course I’m happy without believing in a god—and why couldn’t you be?
God is a PB&J and I don’t need either of them to be happy. Well, actually PB&J is real. I just don’t like it.
But that’s just me.
