    Religion is a tall order created to keep people in check or is that what they want us to believe???

      Pro 1:7  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.


      Jer 5:22  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

      Ecc 12:13  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

        You know arsmith, if there were a god, don't you think he would be sane? Not neurotic with such bad self worth that he needs to be worshipped under threat of death or worse?
        What this part of the bible is describing is a psychopath. Know anything about psychology?... or is that all the work of "the evil one"
        Wotaltarot!

      The topic - I don't believe in god, but I fear him!!! This happens to be one of the most ridiculous statements I ever heard of, aside from those who claim the bible to be fact.

      As for the rest of your OP?

      Religion is a tall order created to keep people in check or is that what they want us to believe? This is yet another ridiculous question-

      Religion was initially created to keep people in check.

      Second- Is that what they want us to believe? - They want to you believe so you won't use the brain you were born with, so as to manipulate you with the hope you don't notice that they have accumulated power, prestige, wealth and influence of the world.

      Plain, simple and to the point. Solid truth of the matter! smile

    Why do you fear if you do not believe?

      You need to read what I actually wrote. I didn't say that I didn't believe in god, I said that I didn't fear god.

      But that some of the more fanatical god-fearing people are scary!

      Personally I believe in 'god' but I don't beleive in man-made religion, which is just a mechanism for controlling people.

    Because of the nagging doubt you could be wrong!  If you look around you anything is possible take a deeper look at thing's and then you will ask question's you wouldn't of thought of before, God could be real but fot the more narrow minded it's just a fiction story!!!

      Which God are you referring to?  And who are you to call others, who don't share your neurotic fears, narrow-minded?

      Probably. But sooner or later doesn't the never-ending war between believers and non-believers end up in every single forum anyway?

    If you don't believe you are narrow minded it's not an insult it just mean's your unwilling to open your mind to the possibility of something more and you tell me i'm wrong because i'm not, People believe in science yet what are their theory's

    Ape to man and why is this because this is what we are told,
    But there's still no evidence there is there "the missing link" and all that.
    so basic science from that theory give's you as much proof as religion,
    What ever you believe you have a right to you opinion or belief but at least think about why you believe what you do, Take a look deeper into your own belief and maybe you will ask yourself question's you havn't thought of before

      If you believe you are an idiot it's not an insult it just mean's your unable to tell scary fairy tale from reality. Oh, and you can't spell for the life of you lol

            what ever the true story is there is no proof either end, Religion could be just a story but so could the big bang and the ape theory is just ridiculous, They can't even prove it, No one can prove jack!

    How can one fear what they do not believe exists?

  9. earnestshub profile image87
    earnestshubposted 7 years ago

    Fear is a primary emotion. Comes from the old or reptilian part of the brain on top of the spinal column.
    That the human sub-concsious would arrive at religion through fear of death is well documented and supported by empirical evidence in psychological studies as long as your arm.
    That process would have some believe in a completely ridiculous fairy tail rather than face their demise. Nothing needs to be explained through hate filled religious tomes, fear and it's offspring causes people to go mad daily. Religion is the simplistic misunderstanding of self.

    It is much easier to join an exclusive club, be given eternal life and be able to explain anything bad as 'sin and of the devil"
    God apparently provides natural disasters, but only to wipe out the bad guys, who are really anyone born in a country that has bad weather!
    He answers prayers, but usually it is a prayer for finding the car keys or something similar, while highly religious loving people die horribly in answer to their prayers.

    This is the biggest pile of crap mankind has ever bought, and is a blight on the planet. Religionists try to halt scientific learning, impose their 'god's" values on others and tell others they are going to die differently and horribly.
    If I listed all the neurotic, psychotic, hateful, sexist demeaning paragraph from this pseudo history of horror, it would be 2" thick.
    Be brave religionists, read something that is not "peer revued" by your bible or quoran.

      the spelling mistakes are not important. They're only funny.
      What it's important that you said you don't believe in God ,but fear him nevertheless.
      How can that be? Unless you see God as a horror movie.

        your missing the point entirely i think most people are, Yea there might be no god but because no one can prove either way what the hell is true then yes there is a chance non believer's could be wrong, Who know's what is right if someone had a strong proof on either end then maybe there would not be so much debate on this neverending subject

      Why the hell would anyone believe in the fairy anyway, no matter what their reasoning, I do not compare or get mixed up between fact and fantasy to the degree that I would try to justify what I did not understand as some invisible sky fairy! smile
