    True,religion and non religion is a huge and vast mix of opinions.We all have different opinions because we do not know the true facts.This is why,there are over 4,200 religions in the world,and every one is right.One would think,that if there is one god and one true religion,we would all be on the same track.I will be the first to say that I dont know and no one else does either.

    If you said it word for word and did not give the author credit for it that's plagiarism. Hence me asking to elaborate, Wally Gaskin.

    Nope you need to pay attention to the grammatical rules when quoting. We have to put a quotation mark before and after a statement then put the author name either before in implication or after the quote as you didn't do it. This is a basic reading rule and to put a Authors name on the title is just a title itself. A separate page followed the title. This isn't getting you anywhere to argue. Especially using all caps lock which is considered yelling or being rude. I'm not here to argue, I'm just stating the facts. Next time do those and we will have a cool discussion as this author has been a childhood author of mine.

    Have you considered that Mark Twain could have been wrong? In my view, he most certainly was.

    I am pretty sure it was twain who also said (paraphrasing)
    How powerful are we, that two humans can conspire to force God to create another soul.

    He was a great mind, I have read many books by, and about, him.

    His views on religion are much the same as mine, although as I have learnt over the years, arguing about a fact and a truth are futile as they are often thought to be the same thing
