I Don't See The Point in Religion

I can't really see the point in having different religions. Actually, I guess I'm only writing this just to make you.....yes YOU.....the reader.......angry. But, really, all you have to do is look at some of the world's most popular religions and they are full of contradictions, lies, deceit, extortionists and power crazy maniacs...and that's just me getting started! Just to take Christianity as an example, if you ask a Christian "Is your religion based on the Truth?", they shall reply "Yes, ofcourse! Jesus is the only way to heaven!". But what they forget to mention is that there are like a million divisions in Christianity itself, all claiming to be the "Truth".

Don't get me wrong, many Christians go on to lead very Truthful lives it's just the fundamentalists which really get up my arse. What I say is that if God gave us as humans a brain, then God would have wanted us to use it, and using our brain we discover science. Science just makes God look more wonderful.....so God knows (quite literally) what so many Christians have against Dinosaurs, Space, Gravity and Evolution. LOL.

In the beginning it was the same Doggy story, Christians thought they were always right with the World being flat and all and when they first discovered it was not, they freaked out and killed poor old Galileo (and have since said sorry to him 350 years after they murdered him to death). You see...somewhere along the lines these fundamentalists got confused, they saw their beliefs being ripped before their eyes and so drew the hard line against science. Others embraced science fully and the exceptional few tried to make both work together. I have full ruspect for these liberals. You gotta be barking mad to either totally reject religion or totally deny science because there are Truths in both of them.

And don't get me started on Islam, there are so many contradictions in it, that I'd rather jump into a fence made of rusting nails head first than tread on Islamic territory. You see...Islam is supposed to be a religion of peace but when you see some of the extremists jumping off planes with bombs attached to their foreheads then you sort of change your mind about using the word Islam and peace in the same sentence. I mean many Muslims will agree that suicide bombing is wrong, and its true to say that there are extremists in all walks of life, but this doesn't excuse the fact that the majority of Muslims celebrate the day the twin towers came tumbling down. I find that sick and twisted and quite disturbing.

So...is there really any point in religion if all it does is cause wars and destruction? If God really did create these religions then why are there so many divisions in them? Religions start off with some degree of Truth but it is the people which modify their God-sent religion. Like the books that are in the Bible were chosen by the Church, they threw out books that didn't fit their point of view. The Qua'ran was written on bits of leaves, a few family trees and on rocks, again, it was changed and manipulated. So really religion is not the disease and is not what is wrong with this world, it is the people who are to blame. Shame on them and their families who brought them up.

If any person reading this is offended by it, then tuff, it means that you're not strong enough in your so called "faith" to be able to cope with direct criticism to your beliefs. Only those that are truly religious will smile when reading this because they are sure of what they believe...the question is...are you?

    Good thoughts on that hard topic.
    In my opinion, all people, no matter in what they believe, want to be free and live in peace. But then, religion gets in the way ... Sad.

    Narrow view on a broad subject. An Atheist myself, but for slightly more educated reasons.

    I'm not a muslim, but I am offended by your racist view of them. How many muslims do you know, to say that the majority of them celebrated 9/11? Please don't let the actions of a few define the image of an entire group. Majority of muslims condemned the attacks.

    Just as you are also not in a position to suggest otherwise either. This is not racism, it is the Truth as I see it. If I have offended you then please read the disclaimer in the last paragraph of the article. However, although these are the actions of the few, and you say the "Majority of muslims condemned the attacks" then why is it that in my local community they were handing out deserts to each other openly and celebrating? What does this tell you?

    And also, what would these "slighty more educated" reasons be? I am intrigued to know.

    i agree on most of your bases - if god didnt want us to question him he wouldnt have given us free will and human curiosity...if it's not our place to know, why does he give us the thirst TO know?
