1) Do you think faith/religion is here to control the masses?
Not faith or religion. Organized faith and religion.
Organized faith is certainly a catalyst for control. And they've all abused the power over and over again.
3) Your evidence?
Misquoting the bible to make people believe that homosexuality is wrong, just because they think its yucky. And yet they neglect to remind their
followers that people in the bible had sex with their children and got away with it in the eye of their savior.
The vatican has legal power, as do other churches.. WHAT?
The 2 books. Old and new testament, are completely a different "color" emotionally. First, to scare you into the merciless God who will let you burn
for eternity, and second, to show you hey, follow this new young guy and you'll be saved.
Its just psychology done right....
4) Did you once believe?
I believe strongly.
5) Did you change?
I used to be catholic, but learned that most of the people i practiced with were not pure in any sense of the word. In fact, I believe they practice
their faith to make themselves feel better for being so spiritually apathetic and for the bad ways they lived their lives.
6) Why are you an atheist?
I'm not, but I understand those who are..
7) Why are you an agnostic?
I wouldn't call myself agnostic. I know my God very well, he just allows people to worship him in different ways. He isn't prideful, and he loves
8) Why you are a christian?
9) What ‘SHOULD‘ God look like/act like/be like?
He shouldn't be anything but pure joy. We will all experience him one day, regardless of the people we are now. He is all that is good, and to some
extent (shallowly) all that is bad.
What we need to realize is that things can happen no other way. We are all free to be who we are and worship how we'd like. As long as you feel in
tune with your universe, then you are in touch with God.
