Today, I had a beautiful conversation with a friend of mine. In typical Socratic manner, it was a pleasure to destroy his arguments regarding religion (and yes, I asked why don't kill oneself when there's endless pleasure in heaven- it's very funny to see my argument in the description of this thread list!) Basically, if one would have to draw a winner, I would claim this position for myself. It was honestly a very pleasant talk, and I think that we both had a lot of fun during it.
Still, his last sentence has stuck in my mind: "Christianity is a part of me. I'm not A- the "normal" person, and B- the Christian; I'm A and B." And this has stuck in my mind. My friend has even agreed that religion isn't necessary in order to behave yourself good and be happy, yet with this one argument, he basically neutralized my entire argumentation.
What do you think of that?
