    I Don't Believe In Religion!

    I don't believe in religion. Years ago I asked myself the question "what religion was there before man"?. No doubt the Universe and creation existed and when viewed through a particle microscope one would witness the energies making up the complex relationships of matter. What...

    Blahhhha

    WE are born into religion, it is not a choice. and we're then programed to believe a certain thing and if we don't... well  paranoia kicks in -  telling us we're bad people, or we're going to hell. I think we've got to evolve from that and understand that its our...

    Random Thought

    It seems to me that the message projected by most religions' holy men has been lost over the centuries. Each religion basically prescribes peace, but cautions that peace without is not possible until peace within is achieved. How does a person go about finding that peace? This...

    Instant Enlightenment!

    Today isn't a great day for me, yet through to using my intellect I see I can actually achieve something somehow. One of those things I was going on about in my mind is religion, but not in a spiritual way. I was browsing through the Philokalia. In itself a very interesting book...

    Smoke and Mirrors

    If you're uneasy about rants on religions, move on, don't look, don't read, and above all, don't even dare to think, you might get some ideas (which is utterly dangerous to your precious religion)! I've been reading many religious books in my life so far, and I'm sure I'll never...

    Why [...] do some highly educated people

    believe religious claims? First, smart persons are good at defending ideas that they originally believed for non-smart reasons. They want to believe something, say for emotional reasons, and they then become adept at defending those beliefs. No rational person would say there...

    Lemmy Said It Best.....

    "I don't need no blind belief, I don't need no comic relief, I don't need no exorcism, bet your life I don't need religion!" So said the man himself, Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. When I first heard this song, at approximately 13 years old, I was taken aback at such blatant...

    God Not Amoung Us.

    I do not believe in religions.  I find that religion corrupts the mind and makes it stale, unable to understand reality.  Religion forces a person to believe.  Most western religions are very strict and blinded by faith and corruption.  The eastern...

    Religions

    I'm born Catholic and will die as a Catholic.  I don't practice my religion either.  I don't believe in any religions.  My religion is my own.  As long as I belive in the man above, this is what matters.

    Religions Are Like Races Somehow

    Believing in a particular religious system somehow means belonging to a specific race, that's my belief. I don't think that religions are of much use. But people seem to need some kind of belief, that's a big problem! Religions fight each other just like races do, this...

    I see way to much hipocracy in so called religeous people. It makes me sad when I hear things like "it was God's will" like anyone knows what Gods will Truly was or have the utmost gall to believe they do. Or all the conflict that happens in the world "in the name...
