    I posted both the "Do You Believe in the Devil?" and Is God an Energy?" hub. After taking a look at both hubs are you amazed at the differences  in logic and mood?

      Under what circumstances would lead you to believe that?

      The devil and god are mythological supposed beings found only in religious text.

      Sure, you have definitions for each inside a dictionary, but only because they are words used in society.

      Science and Philosophy has proven religious beliefs have no foundation and isn't based solely facts, but other people interpretation of ancient old scripts of paper.

      You are being told from your religion that YOU are worthless and no better than dirt.

      To downgrade the human race, is to get them to act that way which proves or reinforces religious view.

      Religion was created for only one purpose- to control the masses of people, because of a perceived belief that if mankind didn't answer to a higher authority then CHAOS would happen.

      The truth has been hidden in the text and purposely put out of context, so they can let your imagination(non-reality) control your belief system instead of you believing in YOURSELF.

      Before you bring the devil or god to the table- you bring your knowledge of life and your understanding of that knowledge to the table with you.

      If you're going to do that- you are exposing your inability to deal with reality, one on one.

      Let's try to keep things real and deal with being self-responsible in reality.

        After being devout Christian my entire life, I too am coming to much the same conclusion as you,Cagsil. Spending countless hours debating with right-wing conservatives over the gay-marriage and equality issue, I finally decided that it's our beliefs in God and the Devil that actual compel us to hurt others, whether emotionally, or sometimes physically.  Prejudice ideas lead to feelings of superiority, and eventually feelings of justification for discrimination and bigotry.

    Your lacking understanding and experience doesn't make everyone else wrong Cagsil. Claiming that you personally do not believe and can not or have not experienced more than your five physical senses can give you doesn't negate there being more.

    Science and philosophy have not proven that religious beliefs have no foundation; stating that as a fact doesn't make it so. Your point about religion telling us we're no better than dirt is one I agree with though. Science tells us that too, doesn't it? Still, I'm writing about that view that people are worthless, useless, depraved creations; it's obvious why people can continue to believe that but there's way more to the truth than that.

    The difference is head knowledge of spiritual matters instead of experiential, living knowledge.

    @ Janonda  You shouldn't loose your faith on this issue until You consider...  No one should judge another for what they do in their own bedroom.  I can understand Gay people wanting to cover their life mate on their insurance plan from work. I always thought that would be the same is if Andy Taylor of May berry RFD wanted to put Aunt B on his insurance. Why not?
    They should be able to sign a life partnership contract.
       But everyone else should not have to call their relationship a Marriage under God. The line is too narrow between calling it a civil marriage and a marriage under god
       This is a lot of peoples issue.  Where do we draw the line for any issue.
