[quote="David N. Snyder"]The atheist message in the video is just as attached to his views as faith-followers as some of you have noted, but there are some valid points.
The vast majority of people around the world do follow the religion of their parents. Nothing wrong with that, if there is at least some investigation of other faiths, religions, secular-humanism, etc. And then if one comes back to their birth-religion, then fine; at least it would be after a comparative investigation.
People frequently register or join a political party different from their parents. But for something much more important (possible eternal damnation, swimming in a lake of fire, rebirth as a gnat, etc.), they just accept the religion of their parents and ancestors without even reading, investigating any other religion.
Sawaddee Ka ..David
There are Muslims/Christians/Hindu in Thailand, so we have to study their religions in college, I had a Muslim girl as my best friend..loved Muslim food/desserts at her house. My Christian friends invited me to sing Christmas songs with them on stage..fun!
Just want to say that I studied RELIGION COMPARISON in college.
