Religion, I Don't Really Care

    Lots of people get worked up over what religion people follow or what beiefs they have but honestly of your religion motivates you to become a better person and in general better others around you....does it really matter what they bow down to at the end of the day?

      Yes, it makes a difference, because human beings should not be bowing down to no one or anything. Fairly simple to understand. wink

              Your all inclusive generalization "people" is an insult to those who have awareness of that life is more than oneself and a prime example of why peace doesn't exist.

              Those who dedicate irrational beliefs to sources that are supposedly controlling or having an effect on human beings, are directly the problem, because they lack faith in other people, due to the fact that they place their faith in something not real.

              The lower level of awareness and lack of understanding of their own life, is directly threatening the existence of the human species.

                Those who are dedicating irrational beliefs to sources that are not human or natural I guess we could say are mabye just creating their own hope and sense of purpose. Whether or not these "sources" are rational or irrational or even real for that matter is not exectly the point...

                If people create these ficticious powers that be in their heads, aren't they really just finding the strength and will to press on and do good in this world on their own accord. Sure its not faith in other people but its faith originating from a human concept...I'm just thinking out loud here so feel free to add or completely shoot down my argument here haha...guess thats the point of the forums smile

                  Creating their own purpose? They are not creating their own purpose. They are taking on a purpose that isn't attainable, but claim truth as they do it. It is self-defeating and works against their own natural ability.
                  There is a difference. Their actions work against themselves, as does their thoughts. Not to mention, how does a delusional person benefit society as a whole? They don't.
                  What human concept? A "god" according to them isn't a human concept. It's something real.

                  When the truth of the matter is that religion and religious beliefs are a hope/emotion based support system, one which, allows them no responsibility in life and allow them to claim a understanding of life, for which, is a lie. Because, they do not understand life.
                  Yes, that is the basis for the forums.

      Considering the compassionate and altruistic traits of human nature already motivate people to become better persons, what need would we have for religions, which consider human nature to be evil? smile

      Yes, it matters.  You should all believe as I do, for I am right and I know the truth.  If you do not see it, you are morons.

    Religion really should be a personal thing. It's a personal choice. Sharing that with others is okay if others agree. I don't believe religion should be forced upon another person. I have sat down and had pleasant conversations with mormons, christians, atheists, and catholics about religion. As long as you learn to have an open mind going into a conversation about religion everything usually goes smoothly... not only that but it leads to some very interesting conversation.

      Everybody says that it is a personal choice, and so many people are still being killed around the world for that personal choice, so what's wrong with it?

        What's wrong with it is that some people lose perspective and become fanatics and can't stand that there other people in the world who don't agree with them. 

        Personally, I could care less what anybody believes, just as long as they are not pounding down my door, dragging me out into the street, and burning me on a cross.
