Why Would You Want To Change Others Religious Beliefs?


There has been lots of questions about changing the views of Athiests, Gnostics and even other Christians,. Why would you have the need or desire to change anyone's views of God? Is there some kind of pay-off with that?

    It's getting people to admit that there is a problem! It's what is stopping them from dealing with reality. Religionists depend on their gods to "save" them, "fix" them, "redeem" the world. It is we HUMANS that must save ourselves! Stop the killing!

    But if people want to believe in Joel Osteen and their particular brand of magic, why should anyone care? The only thing to do is to take religion out of the public right of way..

    I believe atheist numbers will grow exponentially and that all religion has been shown to be useless for explaining life and the universe. As soon as people wake up and realize that no "savior" is going to fix their problems, things will get better.

    I'm still wondering if this is a type of psychopathy and something that may even be genetic. There is a section of the brain that seems to be associated with religious delusions. It's probably unchangeable.

    Don't you think comparing Islam to Christianity is a little far fetched? Their ideologies are like apples and oranges.

    Too funny!

    It's not an act of altruism that causes religious people to spread the "good news". It's called "recruiting".

    There is nothing wrong with trying to "grow" any organization but lets not pretend people are on a mission to rescue souls.
