Religion has never in history saved anyone. Yet it has caused a lot of murder, corruption, abuse of power, enslavement. Until the secular 20th
century every monster in history had a religious scholar providing approval.
Religion is like the Spin Doctoring of the past. The ones who provide the justification for the acts of wicked elite people.
Now please do not misunderstand there are a lot of people who get comfort from religion and try to live by the precepts of that religion in order to
gain the eternal reward / eternal life / reincarnation / 72 virgins / etc. (Prizes are only collectable upon death)
However if you require to be in a group, require threats of hellish damnation and the fear of your God in order to be a productive and good neighbour
then whatever works for you. Just keep your religious ideals between you and your God and live in ignorant bliss.
I have been studying theology for 20 years since out growing my religious upbringing. Morality pre-dates religion, science debunks religion and
education allows one to see through religion.
Anyone who can seriously read the Bible/Quran/Torah/etc without seeing the contradictions, amateur manipulations and protectionist adjustments is a
fool in my book. I am an infidel in theirs.
As long as we can live together in harmony No problem but when they start to try and enforce their dark ages agenda upon me I will fight back.
