Scaring people into believing in the right religion, isnt that why americans left europe in the first place?
I don't believe in any religion or god. I Mean I get the whole idea of supreme being/s, I just don't get the why... Not to mention the belief that people who don't believe will go to hell or be tortured, which to me is an extremely sick ideal.
"I just think it's better to have ideas, I mean you can change an idea. Changing a belief, that's trickier... People fought for it, people died for it." A famous quote from a comedy movie but it makes a whole lot more sense to me than half of the stuff I hear people preaching about.
Plus with all the wars, terrorism and general acts of aggression based upon religious interpretations, I can't help but think none of the major religions have it right (my opinion).
Exactly. Most wars fought were over religion and a difference in beliefs.
Whats happening right now, is a holy war. Muslims (radical) vs Christian americans.
I agree with mellow maromi but also it's causing religious tension within their own group. The Sunnis and the Shi'tes are two groups within the muslim world.
And its also the same here with the majority of the American Population believing in Christianity and the minority believing in different religions.
The many groups within Chrisitianity are fighting over what to believe and they all don't agree on the same thing.
In the end, Pastafarianism will prevail.
I mean, youd have to be blind not to see, that the universe was obviously created by a flying spaghetti monster.
i believe that ppl made religion because they are a good psychologist....anyway i think that religion was the cause of war.
Also, yeah, many wars start out with religion, so isn't it more of a bad thing than a good thing? What kind of "god" told people to go kill each other?
Well anyways, well said.
