    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...

    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...

    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...

    Alongside politics and science,

    and the way all three of them are approached and presented, I do believe religion was a mistake to make in a world like this.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    So everyone's entitled to an opinion.

    ..here's mine. Religion was invented as a means to control people. To exert power over a population whilst hiding behind a book and claiming a higher power has willed it. The bible is full of murder, ****** oppression and magic (read miracles) How people can put their entire...

    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 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...
