The innocent women now has a black streak in her heart.
Her desire for honesty is not as important as her ego.
Unfortunately the gratification for a moment is replaced with a lifetime of living a lie.
It is only important if you desire to respect yourself.
If you have no respect for yourself it makes little difference.

You said:

God is an idea. One that helps many deal with death and fear of the unknown. It's a fine idea and a helpful one at that. But, it's still an idea: a creation of the human animal. It is surprising that for beings so capable of rational thought and reasoning, that we hold on to the belief that there's some form of life beyond our own. And that this life (and the next) is watched over by a greater being.

It can also be said the individual who doesnít believe in God does so due to guilt, resentment and fear.
Fear that if God does exist They will be doomed to hell.
Afraid that God does not consider them worthy of rescue.
Guilt for the wrongs they have preformed which violated even their own moral convictions.
And resentment that God would hold them responsible for their actions.

So which one is weak?
The one who believes in God or the one who does not believe in God.

The one who has the guts to search and find out for themselves even if it is not an answer they wish to hear isnít the weak one.

So are you weak or not?
