I'm not sure every religion says so. But religions were invented to establish a form of social order, and in order to achieve that they instill guilt into individuals.
Superstition exist first, then religions grow into tyrannical power structures.
Naked itself isn't bad. It's the ill intentions of man regarding nudity that makes it shameful.
more like rape-hungry men.
Yes, you are right...no religion has ever prevented men from behaving badly towards women...or small children.
Chipmunk, are you talking to me? Because if you are, I resent that comment. :( I don't post sexy avatars and I try never to "entice" anyone.
Nudity isn't bad. Society makes it bad. I am a Christian and I love God. I praise him everyday. At the same time I love being naked. People who go nude in public are just being themselves. Nudity itself isn't wrong it's what you while your naked that makes it wrong. Most of us at one point did have sex in public. Just because it felt good doesn't make it right. Nudity is supposed to be a beautiful thing and not abused. Yet I still don't find the offense in public nudity.
It's not bad, Ernie, after all, you have to bare your soul to God
Well nudity in my climate could be harmful.
Naked is bad? I didn't know that.
It shows we aren't all equal.
Idk. I like naked.
ME too, naked can be FUN too. but,....
It isn't, religion is
This is why I side with the dino people. I see it as flawed beyond repair. But, will not dislike people who have faith. Long as they let me stay out of it. :)
If we walked around naked, a lot of us would freeze to death. Those who didn't would probably be raped before we ever got to puberty.
Nature, which is not yet accepted as a religion, is the most civilized. What you think as naked, is actually a robe of the soul which we call as body.. and uncivilized ones are what we know as ghosts or spirits, which we scream as unsightly...
Idk.. Maybe it tempts people to.. se-... IDK. That's the first thing that came into my mind.
1. perverts<br />
2. body image issues<br />
I know what you mean, clothes are not natural. God intended for us to be naked. <br />
Nudists; those guys are doing it right.
Naked as the truth is not a religious doctrine
Naked is not bad, only people that are against it are ones who are embarrassed to show themselves in public. I've got the whitest ugly body going and I don't care what others think. Nothing feels better than the warm sun against my bare skin.
idk, possibly mine, My daughter seems to think at times I was born old! lol
Because they were ashamed.
No - not that, I forget just exactly how it goes... but of their nakedness (they had eaten from the tree of knowledge ya know. That kinda changed stuff ya know.
Yeah, something like that... Ya see God back in those days, was not as compassionate and understanding as today.
Oh, so that's why we have to wear them clothes. Mom kept trying to tell me some other reason.
The thought of nakedness is one of representing total vulnerability. Being naked is not bad, in and of itself, -- after all, we are all naked under our clothes! I also think that the idea of nakedness in public is to be a metaphor for a newborn baby -- with its total dependence on the care of others.
