Why is it that the majority of the shittiest, poorest, most corrupt, most immoral and most violent countries in the world are the most religious ones?
Because everything is based on power and control, and nothing else.
To put it bluntly, because religion breeds arrogance and ignorance. The bible says to not ask questions. To ask questions is a sin. I, my friend, in that aspect am a sinner and proud of it. I cannot find pride in arrogance, ignorance nor any entity, state or otherwise pretending to be something that they are not. I will ask questions until they are answered and I do not care who has a problem with that..."Think for yourself, question authority."

It's all about control and when there is no more control, we shall see truth
North Korea isn't religious... and I wouldn't want to party there
It says "the majority", not necessarily "all".
But you could argue that the cult of personality surrounding Kim Jong-il and his late father very much resembles a very devout religion.
Whoa, heavy judging, you sir are a true warrior of god=) I'm merely stating facts, what's wrong?

Not all "Americans" are the same, love; but I do understand your meaning...Please do not judge us all...

Where is this disconnect coming from?Could it be...

The to-and-fro of argument, agreement, disagreement has got me wondering: If each of us has a belief, a set of values to suit our self, in keeping with the religious concepts we are attached to and embrace, can we come to some kind of consensus about what is fundamental, central, to...

Whilst I can't say I haven't learnt a lot from discussions on these forums, answers and hubs, one thing has become very apparent to me lately, and I'm sure I'm not alone.We are all capable of hiding behind a keyboard, saying anything in order to get the response we are seeking - be that anger,...

As written by, and believed by- British philosopher Bertrand Russell. Who wrote the 1927 pamphlet, Why I Am Not A Christian."He writes;"Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel...
