I can't understand why there are people who use religion as an excuse for their problems, or, as an explanation for their problems. People cause
problems and stuff happens. All of their problems aren't necessarily their fault but they are the fault of people... not necessarily angels or
I stopped being religious long ago when I realized that it is silly to keep believing in doctrines that would only get me disappointed. I have no
doubt there are higher-spirits or that there is a God but to blame all of your problems on unseen forces is just a silly idea or thought. To blame
all of your woes on unseen circumstances. So you've had a lot of bad luck that means that you've had a demon watching over you and that you're
possessed? I can't understand some people.
I don't really honestly know why people don't think for themselves. Most of the problems in my life that I've dealt with I've dealt with myself.
I've been able to overcome my hardships without looking up to historical religious figures and seeing what they've done. Sure, I've been inspired
at times at what some historical religious figures have done but I've never blamed a Demon or an Angel on my problems.
Some people want to blame their problems on external factors because they think that people are inherently good and that they would do nothing wrong
unless they were possessed. I can't understand this line of thinking.
I think that people who think that their problems are caused by external factors may be right about some things but I think they need to get a grip on
reality. It seems like this has become a disease and it has kept them from seeing the truth because they would like to believe that whenever someone
has a psychological condition or whenever someone has some issues it's because of an angel or a demon.
I just think that these religious people need to come to terms with themselves and ask themselves what they really believe in. What about God do they
believe in? Do they really think that angels or demons are the cause of all of their joys/upbringings and if so they need to ask themselves why they
really believe that. I never use religion as an excuse for my problems. I usually manage to solve them. I think that that's what these people
should be doing.
