I'M A LOSER: Is There A God? Does it Matter?: Russell Brand & Stephen Fry

None of us can ever know if there is a God, but we do know there is an us. None of us can ever know if there is wrong or right. But we do know there is an us.
— Russell Brand
The question is not is there a God but is there suffering?
— Amma, The Hugging Saint
Yes there is suffering and what can we do about our suffering? We can help one another and we can love one another. Now if you can do that through atheism then do it through atheism.
— Russell Brand

You all know by now that Losing Our Religion is not a church bashing free for all...
...although the church deserves to be bashed.

It's not a political bashing brawl...
...although politics deserve to be dismantled.

Nor is it a show exposing corporations and slay them for their greed...
...although many deserve to exposes and taxed out of business.

Losing Our Religion is a show about joining together not tearing apart.  Knowing full well that to rebuild something else has to be torn down, or at least dismantled to the core and renovated from within.  However we choose the tearing down begins inside of us, not others.

The things we desire to be torn down is Religions, Ideologies, and Beliefs that drive a wedge between humanity.  That begin wars and fights among us.  I believe in world peace, but I am unsure of its reality in my lifetime.  But if we all can become peacemakers, and begin to see eye to eye, then I believe ripples will spread through generations.

I hope we continue to conversate around the cosmos and the things we can't prove or validate.  But I hope we leave them as such, unprovable conversations.

Let's Answer This Together...

Do you need religion or something divine, or bigger than yourself to live a life of loving others and taking care of one another, especially those that are suffering?
