    I strongly disagree with religion.

    It causes nothing but war and suffering, and holding on to illogical, outdated beliefs. This is a quote from a friend of mine's grandmother: "Do not try to engage a rational discussion with religious people. No way they will change their believes /confusion / delusion. You...

    You can try to convince me all you'd like, but all religion sounds like a fairytale made for children, so they can learn 'morals', because their parents are too busy to. It's hypocritical, it makes no logical sense, and it makes people simply narrow minded. I will never force...

    It is a function of religion

    that it sees itself as the highest reference for morality and above all other beliefs. This means that it puts down other beliefs and is insulted when other beliefs put it down.
