Hmm, tough stuff to talk about really.
Religion can mean so much different things to different people.
Personally I am, like someone said above, more of a spiritual person rather than a religious one.
But to me the todays Christian religion, for example, are based upon all the chapters in the bible.
And the bible, is to me, a book of guidelines, where most of the stories in it are references of that times interpretation of the paranormal.
In other words, I have a feeling and a belief that people interpreted the bible alot different thousands of years ago than we do today.
It's almost like that the fable creature "The Dragon" most likely came to peoples mind after making an early excavation of a dinosaur skeleton
thousands of years ago.
So to me religions are a tool for humans to use when they need to get comfort, company, guidance and also we see it being used as an excuse for some
"leaders" so they can do what they want or make their member do as they desire.
I am not hostile towards religion in the way that, if I would experience God in a way where I would feel, Ok HE is real, by him exposing himself
towards me, I would gladly hear him out.
But so far, religion haven't brought us to much good in this world.
Some would say: Hey God makes miracles sometimes, they are good.
Yeah, Miracles are good, but I don't believe that God has exclusive right to make Miracles. I believe there are other forces.
We are so busy looking up the sky looking for God that we forget the look down and care for the true life form we should worship, Earth.
I rather worship our planet. A planet that I can smell, feel and touch.
I try to look at our planet as a living entity. If it has self awareness or not I can not say, but it is for sure living.
Bah, long post again.
Ok, to sum it up.
I believe religion is a human tool for guidance where everyone can use the tool in a way so it fits their own agenda and needs.
