  • but the same could be said of most, if not all, other religions. If there is a force that created us and holds that much power over us, how could that not trump all other considerations?

  • For me I agree, it's very important. However I accept that others feel just as strongly about their own beliefs.

  • I'm not sure what he means here... do you think he meant if it was PROVEN true or untrue? Because if he were asking that question as it stands right now, it depends on whether you believe or not. As an athiest, I don't think christianity or any other religion is of importance because I don't believe in any of the deities the religions are based around. To someone who IS a christian, of course they think it's of infinite importance. And I suppose an agnostic could consider christianity "of moderate importance."

  • I disagree. Even if it's false, it can still be of importance. It has changed a lot of people's lives for the better, whether or not it's true.

  • I think the same can be said of any religion... I don't think it's necessarily specific to Christianity.
