Each religion is different, each religion has denominations (Mormonism, Spiritual Christianity etc.) Each word of God is different, each command and
moral law is subjective. Laugh away my friend, laugh at my unintelligent words. One question though; obviously there is no way to prove God exists
or doesn't exist, then how do you know what his thoughts and desires are? How do you know what he wants? Also, do you support any type of War (Past
or present) Who's side was the big fellow on? How would you know?
You said it very well, friend. IMO religion was created to control people, and keep them always fighting and divided, plain and simple. What if there
were no religions? Could we as a people control our population growth? No, the world would quickly be over ran by people from third world countries
that have no services for birth control. Now used to be, I shall wax nostalgic now....there was a time, in the fabulous 1960s when automobile wrecks
took care of population here is the States, anyway. On the TV, before a holiday they would "project" the "death toll" for the upcoming event, and
then after they would compare to see how close the Highway Safety Board came to the actual number. In those days we didn't have those pesky seat
belts either, and car dashes were made of steel, as was a steering column that would pierce the driver's chest upon impact. Those kids were not too
good to go through the windsheild with Mom and Dad, either. I can remember my son, who was born in 1977, laying on the rear shelf of my Chevelle as we
drove, and my wife holding the baby in her lap in the front seat.
We played with DDT, fire, gasoline, and anything that would go, boom! We ate sugar my the mouth fulls, it was on most cereal. We went out to "play"
in the morning and only came home for supper. Lots of people died from "mushroom poisoning," and hunting accidents.
I would love a world without religion, except maybe that humanity would care more for Mother Earth, their home, after all, and that which provides
them with everything.
Anything that seeks to convert, control, place fear within you, cause you to hate, or to kill, or to do anything in a power name, such as "Jesus."
And there are so many........
Gods and Religions on Planet
"More wars have been waged, more people killed, and more evil perpetrated in the name of 'God' and religion, than by any other institutional force
in human history. The sad truth continues in our present day."
