I don't think I ever could believe in God, but there are definitely some positive aspects of religion, and some people really need that. the problem is that many religions (Abrahamic ones especially) tend to make infringing the rights of others a requirement, and in a free society that can't be tolerated. also, there are many hucksters who use the credulity of the faithful to acquire power and tax free wealth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZCVTcnoyzk

That's a problem with those individual pastors not Christianity itself your not suppose to make money of the name of God it says so in the bible Jesus even flips out when he finds people using the house of God to practice their business.
I belive in Science… Who is with me?
Isnt that the point of Catholics and Protestants?
There is no god
Your fortune: Outlook good
No, but I'm agnostic so I'm not opposed to it altogether. I appreciate religious values like being kind and stuff though because they really should just be normal practices honestly.
Your religion's retarded
Even the idea mate?
I like to occur naturally, anxious to know any pics
you cant delete my cursor over his
I am an agnostic, but I have no problem with the concept of a religion. Maybe I will make up my mind one way or the other as I gain more experience.
There's no substance in religion for me. I don't really get anything out of it so why try?
no, well i don't
no, hadnt in a long time
not in a bearded god, but something more along the lines of the One of neoplatonism or the Brahman of vedanta. Probably because i think seeing a difference between self and others is the root of all suffering.
What created religions anon?
Mostly the fear of death.
Religion gives you the idea that death is not a gruesome end and that its going to be daijoobouu, so you dont get panic attacks when realising that this is your only time on earth ever.
Religion is for weak peoples only.
I guess I do anon... I guess.
Sorta, but not really in a religious way? I don't really believe in any specific religion's god, I just see the universe itself as some kind of "deity".
that is the freudian type of thought which is wrong. if religions like christianity were made to avoid the fear of death, then why do there exist these extremely harsh punishments like suffering for an eternity in hell for stepping out of line?
Punishments give a sense that ultimately justice will be made. That person did something awful to you and got away with it? Don't worry, cause he will burn after death like FOREVER
Also most religious people probably believe or have strong hopes (at least subconsciously) that they will go to heaven. They wouldn't be following their religion if they didn't (there would be no point in following god's rules if you already knew you have a reserved place in hell)
Also, probably even just having the possibility to somehow influence your fate after death is extremely satisfying. Even more so than if a religion promised you a spot in heaven for literally nothing
