    People Need To Accept That There's More Than

    One Belief. I think all beings should be more open minded and stop being such closed minded ****** who think their way is the only right way! Whether You're A Christian, Sadist or a Buddhist. No one knows for sure which is right or wrong. They Are ALL hypothesis. so stop...

    I don't see a point. As long

    as a person is doing no harm, let them have their own beliefs. You can't blame everyone in a religion for the acts of others. That's like blaming all white, black, or asian people for the actions of others in their race. Whether you're religious, Atheist, Agnostic, or just...

    "Why must we argue over

    such things? I believe in Allah but I do not force my beliefs onto other people, I am open minded to other people's opinions. If there is a god. I am sure god would not want us arguing and spreading hatred towards each other.If there is not a god, then we shouldn't be wasting...

    Just because someone makes a reference to the

    bible does not mean they're preaching.

    I think of religion thusly,

    know what you preach. if you're going to give me a lecture about how i should go to church at least know that in the ten commandments, it LITERALLY says do not house my love for it is within your hearts. another one is Jesus, seriously a cross as the symbol. again commandment's...

    Especially the religion/atheist thing.

    I mean seriously, what kind of morons try to have an argument to try and prove/disprove the existence of something whose fundamental attribute is its transcendence of the physical world? Not to mention, these clowns are generally the minority group that takes a particular aspect...

    Christianity And Hypocrisy

    I am a Christian. I have always been a loving, joyful person. Loving people in spite of their flaws and choices. Because I too have flaws. I too make choices others do not like. I do not want others to walk around looking down at me in a metaphoric way just because they have...

    Never understood how someone can claim to be

    devout in their beliefs yet behave in the opposite manner. e.g. A Christian who acts in an unChrist-like manner.

    Why? A believe is just idea

    and perspective. Strong fate or not. Why do we always fight over something that cannot be proven at any point of time?

    I've just seen the movie lady in gold

    and it was an eye opener for me. I've never known much about the holocaust and what happened to Jewish people until now. Its just so sad how those innocent people could be treated like that for no real reason.

    You believe what you believe

    and I will believe what I believe. We can discuss and tell each other what we believe but since there is no actual full on proof of one specific religion being "correct" there is no point to argue!

    It Doesn't Matter

    I heard the words of one priest: "It doesn't matter if someone is Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Jehova's wittness, Hindu or other. It does matter if they are good people" And I agree with him. The most important is what kind of person we are; if we are good or evil. You can...

    Religion is pointless!

    It will keep dividing people! I had once read a joke saying "A man and a god met somewhere and both exclaimed 'My Creator!'" People should understand now that they all are made up of cells, blood, muscles (ok too much of bio-talk), etc. But the main point is, nature has build us...

    Religion... Well Now, That's Actually Part of the Problem

    Religion is just a set of Covenants, Standards or Rules set up by a group of people who feel basically the same way, about a deity, concept, a person, place or thing.  Most every society past and present has had a religion or something like it. The...

    It is so irritating. What is the point in

    in God because of all the bad things he lets happen like disease and war, but I think that's a wrong reason not to believe. I'm not religious at all, so I don't claim to know anything about the Abrahamic religions, but I always thought that God was supposed to keep order in the...

    Don't get me wrong, I won't judge anybody on

    they're religion, no matter how I feel about it. I just don't understand how people don't see how ridiculous they sound arguing about it. We live, we die. Get over your controversy and live while you can.

    Why can't people respect (if not agree) what

    others believe in? Is it a crime to have a different opinion to someone else? It's just like sharing different opinions in other subjects. You don't find world wide controversy over an someones favourite colour...jeez

    The Path of Enlightenment

    The path of enlightenment comes from within. Proof of god cannot be found in a book or a church. It does not come from wood and stone. "God" can only be found in the choices that we make. Do not look for god in the sick and the dying - they are waiting for YOU to help...
