You couldn't possibly have taken my words any further out of context and distorted my point of view ANY worse. I NEVER said that without the meaning in life given by God everyone would have killed themselves. Never intimated, never implied, yet somehow that's what you read. Amazing.

I DID say that without the basic need for significance humanity would not have progressed. The need for significance is entirely separate from belief in deity. Your gross misunderstanding of Christians in general and your reckless misquoting/understanding of my own point of view reveal a serious lack of attempt on your part to listen to and seek to understand people with whom you disagree.

Open your mind and discard your prejudice. Maybe you'll end up pleasantly surprised by your fellow man.
