All of my life before the last year I had been a Christian who believed in Jesus and the Bible and believed because of that I was going to heaven. I also believed if you didn't believe in these things that you were going to hell.
I have cousins who I grew up with who I used to go to church with who were more rebellious and opened minded then I was and had friends that were atheists who I debated religion with. Many atheists I talked to seemed to have an arrogance or ego about them.
While I've heard people say they feel like Christians or religious people are arrogant or egotistical. Now being an exchristian I'm realizing both sides are arrogant and egotistical. Actually I think most people are. Most people feel that what they believe is the truth or fact when it may not be.
There may not have been (probably wasn't) a creation by a invisible god saying let there be light. But we may not have evolved from monkeys.
To pretend that we know what happened when neither can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt is arrogant and egotistical.
I think most of the world, no matter what anyone believes, needs to get over themselves and what they believe to be fact. Because even scientific facts can change.
