Erasmus wrote:Godisadeejay, I am not sure whether you are referring to all forms of Christianity or all forms of religion. In either case, the representation you say you are rejecting is a shallow parody of religion. That's why I feel that to so ardently condemn a phenomenon you need to understand it more fully.
Religion, be it Christian or otherwise, has so much greater subtlety, complexity and depth than the way you represent it. If you want your views to be taken more seriously and to carry more weight, you really do need a clearer idea of what it is you dislike.
What would you like me to understand?
The belief that the human race evolved from just one person?
Eve was created using Adams rib, hence my one person comment.
What about the apple in the garden of Eve?
Maybe we should talk about Noah's family being the only people left alive after the flood that "covered the world" and his family repopulated the planet?
Maybe the bits of religion like the Spanish inquisition?
Or the crusades?
We can look at other religions if it helps, like the south Americans who sacrificed people to appease their chosen god, as shown by the recent discovery of a mass sacrificial grave.
I'm not just against the 3 Abrahamic religions, I'm against all of them as there has been much pain and suffering inflicted in the name of numerous god's because mankind is seemingly unable, or uninterested, in living without a god
I'd have zero issue with religion if it wasn't inflicted on people from birth, if it wasn't used as a money generating machine, or as a paedophile ring etc.
If there was one true God, then mankind would'vr worshipped just the one throughout its entire existence, but it's about 3k of god's isn't it that have been worshipped?
There is nothing that makes the Abrahamic god anymore real than the other 2999, even less so when it's clear as day that Christianity and Islam clearly borrowed heavily from older religions/stories when they were created.
Just repackaged and sold to the sheep as the one to follow.....
