Organized Religion Is Ruining The World.
How much money do you think it took to build that huge, beautiful church? Oh, there are dozens of them... just in one city... I wonder how many homeless, starving children could've been helped with all the money it took to build these churches. Are these places of worship necessary, no, I think not. Why? Well, my opinion on the matter is that the whole concept is utterly absurd. Christianity is the mainstream religion nowadays and with that there are tons of types of that christianity: baptist, methodist, southern baptist, lutheran, etc, the list goes on and well, what's the point? How can something with so many variations have any true bearing on the world as it is? If there is a "god" I guarantee he doesn't give a hoot about half the crap we as a people have come to believe is important to religion. All this money we're spending on churches that's all tax free- I believe is just the governments way of trying to still control the people, although it's far removed now.
Ironically the point of this America was originally for religious freedom. Go figure. I guess we that don't believe any of the mumbo jumbo aren't entitled to our kind of religious freedom or rather lack thereof. Would it really be that difficult to help the world if people embraced the lack of religion and started believing in themselves for a change? I recognize the fact that certain types of people "need" to have something above themselves to believe in and think that's just fine, but don't push others to do so. What's it called when you're taught something and not entitled to question it.... cultist mindset?
If we're damned that's our own business. More likely than not people who are atheist and agnostic or gnostic know as much as the christian, muslim, and hindu that all have their "god" and their set ways. Personally, I have my own belief system that's mainly atheistic ba
Just my thoughts, peace and love all.
