Would it really matter if religion is a lie?
Arguments about religion only serve to have their believers violate their own peaceful doctrines.
True or not true? Does it really matter? Let´s say everybody just stopped believing, no beliefs whatsoever... No believing pharmaceutical ads or preacher stories... or hubs...
No Santa Claus, or Tooth Fairy, no Moses... no U.S. budget... no more onions to peel...
While we snatch at each other, the truly powerful, the ones that don´t need to write to get a point across, sell you on a new story... A new vaccine, a new disease, a new god... Maybe we could strive for what unites us... just saying...
It would not matter if people had enough intelligent to keep their religion beliefs privately.
Or maybe we could combine such intelligence with tolerance?
It should not bother anyone that I believe in fairies and want the world to know... you know...
A world where noone has any belief in anything whether it be religious or just spiritual, is a very cold and heartless one. That's saying that we have no purpose and nothing means anything.
For some religion is the only thing between them and suicide. For others, they might be criminals.
Tolerance. Believe in it.

Close your eyes and take a monent to Imagine you won a $1000 and a trip to some exotic island. As you where you flying to your destination the engines fail and you and a small group of 8 people parashoot out of the plane. Standed in a jungle with 4 strangers now because 4 of the 8 passengers did not make it, you try to find your way. After 12 days in the jungle you were able to find food from the trees and plantations. The only water source was the times it rained. At night you could hear animal sounds that frightened you.The only reason you are surviving is because one of the survivers is army and he knows how to stay alive. After one month a rescue team finaly finds you. Now ask yourself these questions like with out the trees or the rain how would you have lasted? At what point in time would you of considered prayer? Either for help or to pray and thank him for that day you where still alive. Our belief is a factor in our choice of worship, for the purpose of having a relationship with our creator. If religion disapeared that does not mean our realtionship ends with God. But if we stopped believing than it would. The reaon that matters is because there is no functioning with out that relationship. Not just mentally and spiritually but physically too!
It would absolutely matter if it was all a lie. The real question, however, is whether or not people care if their beliefs are true.
Yes it would really matter if religion is a lie, as most of us agree. If it was lie then our lives would have no meaning. I doesn't matter what religion we follow but it gives us a reason to live. If it was a lie we would have disorder and that the government would possibly collapse. Overall the suicide rates would go higher and wars would be what we could say be "allowed" it goes with killing, rape and murder. Well, that's what I think of it.

Atheists, can you remember the moment you stopped believing in god?Obviously theism and atheism aren't switches that can be easily turned on or off. These kind of decisions are made after a lifetime of knowledge and experiences. But, as an atheist, can you remember the moment where it all added up?...

This is the question of the ages. Many walk on the earth simply existing with no sense if purpose or importance. Society tells us to buckle down under the weight and pressure of its woes attempting to coerce us into believing that we are simply here to occupy space on the planet,...
