Here are some examples of things that you do not know, and if you tell yourself you do you are lying to yourself.
1)There is a god/there isn't a god.
2)Aliens are real.
3)You continue to exist when you die.
4)The world is going to end on 2012.
5)Humans are telepathic.
6)Reincarnation is real
If you think you know any of those 5, you are deluded, and you ARE lying to yourself. These are things no one has the tools to carry the burdens of proof. I am not saying science won't come out with the tools needed to figure these things out, but it hasn't yet.
If you want to get an inside look of experiences, and how our minds have this uncanny ability to change our experiences from what they actually are, into what we want them to be (which is exactly what they are not) check out my "Experiences Defined" thread.

science is the opposite of faith
But, it was you that said animals practice no religion, I pointed out that you can't know that. So, bullying and the rest is more simply more of the same. More bullying. And its a full flush attempt to silence me. Throwing your weight around doesn't work. A lot of effort, big guy, for nothing.
I never said anything about knowing how an atheist feels or lives their lives. I do see an anti-religious sentiment growing worldwide and I think it can become another jehad.
Is your logic so unassailable that you are fearless, or do you get riled at the discussion? It's obvious. I don't have to accept your specious FACTS.
