This is my first thread.
Religion, what is it all about?
I am sure that many people here judge religion very cautiously. This is a site for looking at things differently, there for I suspect that most of
you don’t agree with religion in its entirety. I know that growing up in the modern world children are beaten over the head with so much
information, they are knocked confused and it’s this where I have a problem and it does not really stop at children, it goes on all through our
lives, no matter your age.
I know there are many religions throughout the world; there are those that most know about and there are those that are more obscure. Still they all
agree that there is some kind of grand design to the world and the universe that surrounds us. These ideas, to those that respect and preach them are
very real and very true.
I ask this to religion and its purpose though, how can you live by something you have no idea how it was created? How can you live by something you
don’t question you just accept? How can you preach to others a message you have no right to set as truth if you and no one else was the original
creator of such text?
Also in the modern day, the stories of all these religions preach a different story as the years go by, they alter depending on what is discussed and
protected to further more create a sense of truth to those that read it. This is not hidden either, this is presented in front of everyone. Yet those
that already follow their religion do not question the changes, they just flow with it. Does this not beg the question that you are lying to
To think that religions from all over the world are now being intertwined into one another’s lives and if you or anyone else questions its beliefs,
you could even be taken to court for such things. Does this not beg the question that maybe governments are using religion to create a clashing
society, to create diversities, to create problems? We all know that certain religions are woven into the laws we abide by these days and that most
laws come from religious ideologies. So this should question people’s views on its real use among us. If religion is solely a choice, why is it
being implemented into the rules we have to follow?
It’s an obvious that most people will look to religion as a get away from the realities of life. It also gives a sense of something more then life
itself and the added security that maybe, after death, there is more.
But is this not just a well-packaged business deal?
