So I was walking around my little Massachusetts town with one atheist friend and three christians when the topic of religion came up because my atheist friend was saying how ridiculous God is and the afterlife. Surprisingly my friends weren't offended and they said somethings that I found really funny. My first catholic friend says he just goes to church because his parents make him and he thinks religion is dumb. My second friend says he believes because he just wants something to look forward to when he dies. My third friend says he believes that Jesus was real and stuff, but there is no afterlife..... That makes no sense. Anyways I thought it was really funny how they treated religion like a joke and they were not scared to speak their mind which condricts their "beliefs".
