Please take this crap back to the cave in which it was found. This is, what I like to call, the "Exclusivity Clause," and it is a dirty
brainwashing technique that permeates ATS, and the greater internet, with its foul stench all too often.
"Oh noes, you gotta believe in 'X' so that everything will be okayz after you die."
- If you can't see how this quote, which can be attributed to most religions, is designed to infiltrate your mind then you're beyond help. It's a
metaphoric gun pointed at your abdomen, and I don't feel that such a thing could ever foster true spirituality. The fact that it is reiterated so
often in modern society is really just proof that this type of barbaric belief is experiencing its "death throes." With the advent of the internet,
the religious are now, more than ever, being confronted with people that believe differently than they do, and this is forcing them to reexamine their
own beliefs. Doing so is terrifying, because religion is a house of cards, and taking just one close look at it can quickly reveal it for the scam
that it is. At this point the only thing that can save the religion is to claim that all that "fancy book learnin" is Satan's trickery.
You know, the interesting thing about this is that critical thinking is the enemy of religion, but critical thinking occurs whether you want it to or
not. Belief really isn't a choice, and I'll wager that there are many more doubters than not, but to vocalize such doubt is impolite at best, and
social suicide at worst. I know it's scary, but you really should embrace reality. Once the shackles of religion have been thrown off we can start
really getting to the bottom of the mystery of existence.
