    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...

    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...

    Agnostic?

    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...
