I don't know if there is a god. I try not to base too much of my life on the concept of such a thing, but it is a interesting consideration of some
sort of greater organization in the universe.
Religion is ridiculous in my opinion. The concept of the deity in the various "holy" books seems so...human and not even the best version of
humanity...pretty closer to the worst we can offer in regards to vanity, pride, etc. for attributes.
I think if a person of faith is a happier person because of it, then great..but soo many people mourn their religion, and often use it as a
A connection to something greater is a personal quest, and should be respected for the invidual to seek out..so I don't respect when one person tells
you in regards to your own personal connection. That to me seems like someone robbing another of the persuit and uncovering, and instead holds hostage
the other person's basic essence of self as something they have to buy into under a blanket ritual and understanding.
Religion supresses both scientific progression, and personal spirituality.
