    Religion, and Why I Am 100% Against It.

    I honestly don't like religion. We are all made to believe that our god is the greatest and as long as we have him nothing can go wrong. I'm sorry, but bull sh_t. If religion is such a wonderful thing, then why does it always rip families apart. Not only families, but our...

    A Major Negative In My Life

    I am a transsexual woman and my religious upbringing was the single most negative influence in my life.  The preamble of religion SHOULD be, "First, do no harm.", but that isn't the case.  I know that there are some caring and compassionate people in religion but I...

    "What is the meaning of life?

    " I feel like at some point we have all battled with this question and if you're like me it is one that has been fought in your head over and over and over and over again. I can still remember it clearly, the day when I wasn't even thinking of anything in particular and an...

    If You Want To Be Religious, Enter Not The Gate Of Any Organised Religions.

    If you want to be religious, enter not the gate of any organised religions. They do a hundred times more evil than good, because they stop the growth of each one's individual development. Study everything, but keep your own seat firm. If you take my advice, do not put your neck...

    Ok hear me out... I don't belong to a religion,

    mainly because I am an atheist. However this does not mean I discriminate against other people. I believe that people should believe what they want to believe in and be happy to do so, which is actual the main reason why I don't like religion... I find that religion isolates...

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion,

    so here's mine. First off, I was raised into a Catholic family, grew up going to church every Sunday, yotta yotta yotta. Now, let me tell you why I don't like religion. 1.) It bothers me how religions purposely make people feel guilty. You don't go to mass every Sunday, you're...

    I have noticed something about myself recently.

    I have not been liking religion very much. Especially Christianity, but I might dislike it more because unfortunately most of the people in America are Christians. I have been to an Apostolic church a couple of times. A good friend of mine started going to one and one day she...

    Not Like That Anyway...

     I don't dislike religious people, far from it. I just have any interest in the topic. Nothing missing in my life, no spirituality waiting to be explored. Nada. So maybe its not that I'm anti-religion, its not important to me.

    Religion Is Flawed Because Man Is Flawed...

    I don't doubt the possibility of something being out there that is significantly more advanced than us that could potentially be responsible for humanity's existence, but when I consider the sheer size of the universe and what could potentially be out there, I think the chances...

    Why Fight?

    Why do people fight over religion? According to what i have heard, its because if someone does not believe in your religion, they are a heathen and must burn in hell. Im not saying all religions are like that nor are all religious people, but it is the global thinking of most...

    Cotton Candy Anyone?

    I'm agnostic but I am not hard at all on discrediting religion or anything else for that matter for there are so many takes on any one given topic - hence the over 30,000 denominations in christianity alone. How can God be so absolute if we can pick and choose and make for us a...

    It Kills.

    and it tears people apart. There is this girl I know, who used to love the band Tegan and Sara. These two girls happen to be lesbains. Now, this girl is a very religious person, so is naturally against homosexuality; so, when I told her that this band had lesbains in it she...

    Especially When I Have to Talk About It.

    I don't like feeling like I have to explain my life to other people. As much as I think I try to avoid it, it still comes up sometimes. I don't like stupid questions like "Wait, so you don't believe that God is Perfect?" or "Wait, you don't...

    I just think the idea of anyone believing

    that a magic being is up there watching all 7 billion of us individually is about as absurd as children believing there's a Santa Claus. The only difference is, children all eventually stop believing in Santa Claus.

    It's not that I don't like it.

    I just don't get it. Religion can be so destructive and I don't get why

    It Divides People Instead of Unifying Them

     In my opinion religion is a problem in today's society. People are taught by their religious leaders that other religions are bad or are kept in the dark completely. I was raised as a northern Baptist. I went to school in a town that was mostly Roman Catholic. I found...
