Do You Truly Think Religion Is Helping The World Today?Ok, keep in mind that I do not see myself as an atheist. I believe in God. I believe in Heaven. I believe in Hell. & I like the idea of religion. Oh wait, I don't think I made that perfectly clear. I like the idea of religion. As for religion its self, I hate it. Whats the difference?
The idea of religion, is to created peace in the world & bring everyone together (ad least in my eyes that's what its suppose to be)
Religion of today, is nothing but a bunch of boring manipulating people who force you into believing what they believing what you say, or they will threaten you by saying your going to hell, hitting you, &/or killing you.
I believe in God, but there are 2 things I don't believe about it. God isn't human, & we should not warship it. I mean you can if you want to, & pray, but worshiping just seems like a waste of time to me. But that's just me. & seriously? Why would God "make us in his image?" I'm not going to get in how messed up that is because I will be here all day, but one point is, you religious people do in fact depend on that book for too many things. Why is God a writer? Does "he" sit in heaven just typing up a bunch of story's about people who hanged out with "his" son, & occasionally talked to "him"?
Also, I could be wrong about this, but I think that people say that if Jesus comes back from......wait, I just thought of something. Were did Jesus go? I mean first off, the dude is the son of God, & obviously must have gone to heaven if he has died. Now if the dude came back to life once, & religion people need him now, why would God keep him from us? Also, why do we need him? Starvation isn't the only problem in the world any more. We have bigger problems than that, so feeding villages with bread won't help us. Death is a natural part of life, & besides, isn't being a necromancer considered a bad thing? So we don't need him bring grandma back from the dead. & the walking on water thing; how will that help anyone? There are debates about Jesus's nationality, wither if he's African, or Caucasian. Hows about he's Asian, since the only other people who are known for doing that are ninjas. *coughnarutocough*. Also, if the dude was killed by 3 nails, what makes you think he can't be killed by a gun? I mean if the guy died before, why can't he die again? As far as I know, no one said the guys immortal. I mean, HE DIED! So, if Jesus did comes back, what use would he be to us? But back to my point. If Jesus came back from.....wherever it was he went to, then the end of the world is suppose to happen. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a bad thing? Why do we want the end of the world to happen?
You guys depend way too much on the bible, & I don't like it when you guys say I'm going to hell for certain things I do. Now, I'm not going to lie, you guys have a point with the gay people, & prostitutes. It does make sense for denying the natural way of having a child with a man & a women being a bad thing. Not I don't believe gay people are going to hell for being gay, but even if they are, WHY SHOULD YOU GIVE A FLYING F***! If a persons gay, just let them be! Don't try to "help" them. as for me, I support gay rights.
Also, prostitutes, I really can't defend much. No offenses ladies (I believe in women's rights, so please don't think I'm bashing you, plus since prostitution is "bad", I don't know what other typical role a women would play. If you girls have any suggestions, I'll take them), but technically, women are suppose to support there husbands by being at home & cooking & cleaning & stuff like that. I do not mean that as an insult in anyway, & if you women are offended by that, I apologies. But seriously, if its bad for women to want sex, & give up there bodies easily, than that's like the only other rolls they can typically play. I say typically, because there are lots of women in the military, & doing other important stuff outside of being just a housewife. So yeah, prostitution is bad, but damn it, there there for a reason! Men are always horny & must have a lot of restrain to not be, & some women do in face love to be easy. I don't like the fact that "******" are frowned upon in society. Im a nerd, so I need a *****!
K, I think I got off topic a bit. But anyway, religion is filled with manipulative people, hatred that always leads into wars, false promises from a divine being, & serious plot holes that make people question it.
So yeah. Do you think religion is helping the word today?
