    Hi guys and girls

    I remember reading on here someone's siggy which was really cool. It was quite a long quote and the jist of it was...

    'If god dosent exist thats cool, if he does exist and is a benevolent god he will forgive me if I dont believe in him right now, if he does exist and is a vindictive god who would cast me to hell for not believing in him, then who would want a god like that'

    The original quote was wayyyy better than that but hope someone knows the quote i mean xx

    Not sure if this is it, but it sounds like it:

    "Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.

    If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.

    If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

    - Marcus Aurelius

    Love that one by the way.

    And that is why I thoroughly believe I was born in the wrong century sometimes. Where are those values? They are more the exception than the rule this day.
