I would rather believe that I'll see my dead relatives and loved ones again, and that I'd never truly die.

But I'm not a child. So believing in fantasies because they are comforting is worthless. Adults should face reality.

I don't know the truth. But I do know that the beliefs religious people have are based on nothing but wishful thinking. The only thing that religion has to offer is lies told by delusional or manipulative people.

Jesus, if he existed, was nailed to a tree and died forever. It's shitty, but much of the world is shitty. Although it is getting better as we turn away from the stupidity of religion.
