.. the only mention was that peter was metaphorically Jesus's church yet its still such a large part of the christain community. Its more down to tradition than fact though

The point about Peter being the 'rock' on which the RC church was built is actually based on a mistranslation. Jesus calls Peter a 'stone' - not a 'rock'. In addition, Peter never went to Rome anyway ...

No, that's just the chemical reactions that happen in your body when you see or think of someone you have a strong attraction to. I love my parents but I don't get a racing heart or butterflies in my stomach when I see them.

They say the same about shizophrenia, that the dopamine levels in autopsied schizophrenia patients are higher and therefore this is proof that chemicals control us. I on the other hand believe that it's our thoughts that control the chemicals. Think about it. The signals come into our brains through our eyes, we think about it (as is the way of the brain) and then the chemicals change to give us feelings of love.
If it's all chemicals and things like that controling through our emotions then how can anyone possibly be guilty of a crime? Wasn't me your homour, I just lost my temper because of high levels of a certain chemical existed when x y and z conditions existed in my miind as a result of being indused by external factors.

I believe in souls, reincarnation ect
But I also believe that animals have souls. I once said this to a Christian, they said that my beliefs are bullshit and wrong. I asked them to prove that they're right, they couldn't.
