Q9. Messages for the A-files -

... too few options ... the poll is biased ... christians are the same as everyone else ... I do not believe there is any way to know the truth ... Christians try to force their beliefs onto me ... they will not change my mind ... found too many errors and inconsistencies and lies in it ... because of diligent study of the Bible I had to quit ... cannot believe most people are hoodwinked from cradle to grave with weird unproven and even assinine belief systems without an iota of fact ...
