I think religion was made up before people knew what governemnt is. I think religion was basicly invented to help keep people under control, to keep things from going straight to chaos. Back in the old days, everyone was pretty much equal, the only thing that separated people from other people was the thought of "royalty" or money. I'm not denying that all the people existed: Jesus, Ghandi, and other "prophets." I mean there are just so many things that don't add up, like with the voting that went on to only include books of the bible that made Jesus seem immortal (no weakness), when in fact he even had a wife, the bible claims that it has been translated perfectly every time it was translated and that it can be used in everyday life, man is not perfect, therefor we (in translatting the bible) would put our own politics, rage, and beliefs into it. Also, do you think god cares if your gay? If god made us in his image than all of our thoughts, beliefs, and personalities had to have came from him. If this was the case then God must of had some gay in him (I hope this does not come off as offensive). I thing religion is for the weak minded that cannot accept the fact that after you die, its just like before the time you were born, you don't exist. I think everyone that has not come to be one with themselves feels like that have to have a sense of belonging. Life after death is just like, before you were born.

Yup. I feel there has been evolution of God and Man/Creatures. Bibles make perfect sense however there is no evolution of the bible. It states end of times! End of times may not be literal people just don't understand yet. It very hard slow process to have people evolve and if it is spiritual sheesh you would think they need God to come down to tell them themself. A problem is this if people read the bible and pray and thats all, than what? They think they are complete. They are not, I feel strong to say that there is more it maybe a slow process and you can't get all the answers from a book but there is more. I would garantee if there was a study done for people to try to evolve spiritualy people would have similar results. I mean looking within thereself with no bias I belive they can come up with answers etc over time. The hard thing is for people to "break the shell" and look deeper. I don't know if anyone has heard the term "break the shell" before or people being in eggs until x amount of time. Basic non literal of thinking outside of the box.

However with that said, as in the 1800s to early 1900s you seen a huge evolution of inventions electricty,cars,light bulb etc than you didn't see anything else invented, however when computers/internet started you see a snowball of speed of the evolution process of things getting better. Now the same goes to spirituality. Once a few people take the step it snowballs other people see and so on and so forth thus pyramid God trickles down through us.

Agree?

You have voted seeuathemovies for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have two more votes this month.

Heres my 10 cents.
Reglion is nothing more then a method of controlling the masses. Reglion is an outdated concept in parts of society people dont even have to get off the couch to be told what to think anymore.
