    My Teacher Made Me Think.

    Two things. I don't believe religion is a good

    thing and I don't believe religions are real. Religions are there, but they aren't real to me. Because there are so many of them. Religions are just massed opinions that should be respected and not shoved into people's faves who don't want them. I hate it when someone tried to...

    I don't care for religions at all.

    Some of them, I find interesting. But only in the same way I find books or games to be interesting. I find it disturbing that some people can't make clear and compassionate decisions without religion. At least that's what I've heard some claim. That's creepy and I'd recommend...

    I don't believe in religion I've tried telling

    my parents that before. They wouldn't accept that. I had to pretend it was a lie, a simple joke to see what they would do. They told me if I didn't believe in religion, I would go to hell. Really? I don't believe in religion so I'm going to go to hell because your RELIGION says...

    "Name This Feeling."

    Part of the time when I find myself listening to religious radio I can feel myself and goodness being pushed aside.

    Who's God, Part 2

    I’ll try to state my opinion step by step, assuming god exists in the form religion describes him. -Garden of Eden This is actually funny! He created an apple tree, a tree of knowledge of good and evil. And he said it is wrong to eat an apple from that tree. However Eve...

    The Roman Catholic Church has long been holding

    hands with the powerful 1% who control this country and have used their [GODLY] influence to persuade the common people to vote against their own self-interests, time and again. How repulsed was I when I sat in church and the priest casually mentioned to parishioners...."Don...

    Agnostic?

    I grew up in a "christian" family and had a phase of being very serious about it. But then I started thinking. I think there might be "something" there but how could we know what it is? Especially if it is infinite and beyond us like they all say... The...

    The One Way Ticket To Heaven.

    HOGWASH.    There is no ONE WAY ticket to Heaven through any one Religion.  No Religion has a fast- track ticket to Paradise.  There are many ways, all ways, always a path that can lead you  to GOD and Heaven but  that is all man or Religion can do - lead you to a path...

    Delusion

    I find the idea of religion as a whole as ludicrous and, with no disrespect to those who choose to believe, i think that its plainly falling into the faith of some omnipotent, unnatural force. I feel that believing is subjecting yourself to having the need for easy...
