    Perhaps. Also quote attributed to Hemingway "Critics are men who watch the battle from a high place, then come down and shoot the survivors" may be spot on as well.

    I'm starting a new religion, called the "Chavez is the most righteous dude" religion. Some basic tenants:
    All surfers will bow before Chavez, Chavez gets top priority at all breaks world-wide.
    Fear and worship the righteous back-side hack of Chavez.
    When Chavez appears at your break and walks on water, you are to put 10 dollars into the Chavez is Poor Box located at each beach entrance.
    All will now drink the nectar of Chavez- Jack Daniels. Those that throw up will be committing a mortal sin.
    All wives and girlfriends will come see Chavez for "Confession"
    I demand a sacrifice of 32 Spongers every October 31st.
    Chavez's likeness to be photo-shopped onto every image of the former deity know as Slater. I cast Slater into the fire pit (Great Lakes) to surf there for all eternity.
    Who's in?

    I'm a non-BELIEVER. In all things.

    All I'm saying is why be a "non-believer" in the religious sense only to use belief to guide every other aspect of your life?

    Or are most people on here slagging on Wayne and his "beliefs" just because they're not-so-closeted sanctimonious bullies?
    You didn't get the joke. I don't actually think you're a nihilist.

I'd be happy to discuss this offline, so as to not burden the forum.

    Agreed. This here is not what the good news and grace of God teaches. If it doesn't change you for the better, then I'd question whether it is good enough (or working in you) to save you. The "I bought fire insurance so I'm going to be careless and play with fire" is faulty indeed, and those that propagate that stuff have a problem. The "hall pass" mentality, as well as the Flip Wilson "the devil made me do it" is bogus.

    I don't think that belief promotes childhood, irresponsibility, or anti-intellectualism. Some of the greatest minds were believers: Newton, Keppler, Faraday, Mendel, Copernicous, etc.. the list goes on into moderns times.

    I hear you bro', just maintain sincerity and openness in your journey.
    The greatest minds were not believers in the literal translation of the bible. You can believe in god and science. Modern christianity seems to have a problem with that. That is why they try to fight science (thus the whole evolution fight the southern school systems deal with).

    The "doctrine of the Pharisees" did not die off in the 1st Century. These were the dudes that had an issue when Jesus dined with the tax collectors and other social outcasts. I think He might have a problem with this.
