    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.

    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...

    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...

    Not to sound like an atheist,

    but do you guys truly, and I mean down to every single speck of atom in your body, believe that religion is going to save us? You say that there is an afterlife, but can you truly believe the words of someone who has never experienced death for the first time. How can you...

    I find lately that when a person begins talking

    about their faith... I begin to actively pity and look down on them. Religion is used to control people. Period. That is its sole purpose. People who buy into it are being manipulated.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    So everyone's entitled to an opinion.
