There doesn't. Organized religion appeals to those who lack both the intelligence and the werewithal to realize that being a person of moral character benefits them and the society they live in and HAVE to be told this through the "word" of an always-disappointed, always-pissed off, always vengeance-seeking God. I have no problem with people believing in a deity and calling this intelligence God; I do. But organized religion is the product of men seeking to control, not of any higher intelligence.
Because people creating religions keep screwing up the truth of spiritual belief and quibble over cultural differences.There is one God which many cultures know by many names.
Because living in peace would be unbareably boring.
People love drama
If it's the "religion" that rules, it's not religion.
This is why I don't like the term "religion". I believe religion should be about faith. Not about ruling over another belief. Faith should have power over ones soul, and nothing else. I believe faith is essential, but religion has become a judgmental, hypocritical, self-righteous hierarchy, when it should really be about love.
Well said, MS. I feel the same way. I have faith; I do not follow religion.
Religion was the bastion of rule of empires and civilisation , However it became the Viral Virus of man; heritage, culture , history and his individuality, The dominant religions are actually empires in making every one adhere to the set beliefs, It is a enthema of deterioting beliefs that will one day be banished from the minds of all, Religion is actually a chaotic set of rules that were all lost in the translation of its intended purposes , the dominant religion are actually the dogs of death making sure everyone perishes in the mindset of the Individual mayhem brought about by man's quest for Universality and like the deadly cancer cells it afflicts all with the igonarance of a purely stupid dumb looney let loose in a world of utter destruction.
because they claim that there's only one god and you believe in that god or you burn in hell. truth is that there's many gods, however, they haven't taken their psych meds in a while so everybody burns in hell anyways. sorry to say. ;-)
religion is bull ****. practice whatever faith you please, just practice what you preach....

Most religions claim to be the only way to go.<br />
Ironically, that one thought makes them all the same.
