I Think Religion Is Man's Worst Invention

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 259 People

    Religion is very misunderstand.

    Keep the people stupid? Religion is used to control the masses of people. It is not the literal holy books which matter. They shouldn't be taken word for word. ALL religions have a deeper meaning and purpose. For example, Christianity - Golden rule. Jesus says this is the...

    It's Naive

    I believe that religion is entirely man made. That it is a primative way of trying to explain the things that happen that you have no controll over. It is a cause of racism, sexism, homophobia, war and it holds back science which can find the real answers

    Religion

    I think it's fine to believe in God. Sure, maybe I don't, but it's understandable. What I don't understand is how people make up these different rules and classifications that they have to follow. If there is a God, I'm sure he/she/it doesn't care if you don't eat meat on...

    Religion Brainwashes People

    I'm sick and tired of watching people who won't make their own choices because of religion. It's as if acknowledging the existence of a "god" completely robs people of their sense of free will.

    A Love Lost

    My very best EP friend has put an end to our relationship which was more real than anything in realtime. We shared warmth and understanding, comfort and joy.  Our marriages were causes of dispair that we helped pull each other out of.  Now it is over, after just 6 weeks all...

    I Agree But!

    While i agree that religion is man`s worst invention. I have a lot of time for esoteric, and spritual teachings, The sad thing is alot of people group these together. But to get back to religion...It was never, and still is`nt about truth. It is and always has been about control...

    Ee'Dplebnista ... The Holy Words

    I fail to understand why someone would prefer to live a life of misery instead of one full of happiness all for the sake of a few passages in a book written by a self serving group of men who were duped by a cleaver man into thinking he was a deity. The man in question was an...

    Anti-religion

    I became anti-religion as I grew older and I'm fine with it. Relions what you to submit yourself to them and I think that's always a bad idea, even if your intentions are good. Too much blood has been shed over one relion or another when most relions are basically the same as far...

    God Would Not Have Made This Mess!!!

    I know that there is a lot of anger on both sides. Non-religious or EX religious (or ex christian in my  case) really have given deep thought (I am making a broad generalization based upon the many number to whom I have spoken personally) to the "WHYs" of their disdain, hatred...

    Why I Turned Irreligious

    I used to be a firm believer in psychics and the afterlife. But I read a book called "War of the Woldviews" by Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow. One, a believer in the soul, the other, a proponent of material science. It has shown me why the arguments for the soul do not work...

    Religion Is Many Things

    Religion is a waste of time.  It is just a bunch of tall-tales.  I would have a religion if I actually met gods and had proof that they ever existed.  But, I would have to see it for myself.  Sadly, I never had any reason to believe that religion is...
