    lol lol lol

    Approximately 66% of the world's population is or has a religious belief. Just imagine IF more people who signed up for Hubpages were to visit the forums? lol

      Well then, with all due respect, perhaps gambling with dice may make more sense to you, if you are content to gamble with your soul.
      To "procrastinate the day" of one's repentance is of course, another way of gambling. I think that it is obvious that many HubPages writers utilize this venue as a humble way to spur themselves on, even more than others, to own up to their own unique and individual needs of repentance. Ironically or not, the others then become the beneficiaries of the benefactors who contribute to the various educating forums of discovery under similar sub-headings made available to us. Many of forums overlap and generate numerous segues and virtual tangential discussions.
      Religion and Philosophy go hand-in hand; that is one reason HP has grouped them together in the main heading.
      Of course, you are well within your rights not to care [about] religion, just as I don't care how for instance, how "well-done" some might say ones' meat ought to be eaten in order to gain the most nutritional value from it. O.K., maybe a bit.

    As an atheist, I enjoy the religious arguments the best.  They are something to really get my teeth into.  Humans tend to enjoy debating the big questions, and religion has to be one of the biggest.

              Interesting dream. smile I have never been careful.... not a family trait. smile But if I die in the next day or two and come back, I'll drop you a line to let you know your dream was spot on!

              If I disappear from hubpages and don't come back, then tell all the religiously imperilled that I went straight to hell just like they said. smile
              May as well spread some joy! lol

                I remember having a dream once in which I was a spider, and was terrified of myself, because I don't like spiders.  I wonder what that was all about?

                  earnestshubposted 5 years ago in reply to this

                  That is a doozy! I love spiders! Spiders are way more interesting than many realise. Did you know that they dance and have many human like traits?

                  That should have been my dream! smile
                  The best way I found to discover what my dreams mean is to just ask the question as you have. "I wonder what that means?" is the right response according to Jungian therapy at least.

                  I leave the dream alone and the meaning sort of soaks in over the next day or two after I ask the question of myself.

                    That is the reason why I would not want to live in Australia, as I have heard that there are poisonous spiders which climb up the loo and bite people.  I think they are so ugly, with their eight legs and they move too quickly for my liking.  I once danced like a spider, when a huge bugger dropped on my chest and sat there looking at me, when I was at work.

      Understood. I was just wondering if the comment you were referring to was the one he left on my newest hub. God is still mulling it over as we speak. big_smile

    Usually I avoid any religious topics like the plaque!

    But I am heart-sick of reading thread titles about religion here on HP. Don't these folk have a life to be getting on with?

    Jesus does not save. Jesus is dead. Jesus was an alien, anyway, and don't annoy me with comments saying how he worked miracles.

    God doesn't exist either - sorry to spoil your delusions.

    There is just us. Humans. We are responsible for our own actions, so don't be fooled into believing that going to church and confessing your sins makes it all right. It doesn't.

    If you were properly brought up, you know right from wrong, good from bad. You don't need a book to tell you.

      I agree that religion is false, because it is the creation of man, and I have spent many hours arguing with the religious, who I have assumed are bigots, which some undoubtedly are.  However, I have come to believe that I may have been basing my views on the most extreme examples of religious fundamentalism, such as the 9/11 terrorists or the Westboro Baptists.  This might be akin to comparing the Nazi party with the Labour party, simply because both are political parties. 

      Whilst religion may be nonsense, perhaps there is nothing wrong in it, if it gives people hope, and as long as they keep their religion to themselves.  Certainly, I was much happier when I had the false hope that religion offers.

        IzzyMposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        As a child, I held that false hope. I also believed in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus.

        But for adults to believe in it, is a nightmare!

        For many years, I felt that people needed something to believe in, something to give them hope and something to aim for.

        There is nothing wrong with that, and if religion does that for you, then you have nothing to fear when it comes down to natural human emotions like love and loss. God will guide you, be with you, no matter what.

        But this latest Hubpages religious stuff is in your face, you will believe or rot in Hell stuff.

        Sorry I like the word stuff when it comes to religion. You can stuff it!

        I hope you mean He (as in He who shall not be named) and not Google. Or maybe Google, my account needs a boost at this point.

        I have nothing to thank a God for, so he can whistle in the wind.

        I almost believed all that religious nonsense when my 18 year old brother died when I was 17.

        Almost, but not quite. My mother did, God rest her soul, it brought her comfort. If any God can do that to a mother who has lost her son, then it can't be bad.

        Just not good either. Playing on people's emotions, using them to further its own ends.

        I have no doubt the church got a big financial donation after my brother died.

    Actually, I am reasonably certain that things are a lot better here now than they used to be. I don't know why it is so, but it seems to be. Or maybe I've just grown used to it. smile
