Sorry that I have taken so long to reply to your post... but here goes...
Your over-use of generalizations leads me to question your integrity and the foundation for your opinions. Your opening statement, "We have endured
two thousand years of Christianity (the unholy creed that says you are damned to hell if you don't accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour)" is
not only false, but also incredibly one-sided. My question to you at this stage is this: Who are the "WE" that you refer to, exactly? "WE" as in
"HUMANITY"? If so, your opening statement is lacking in substance due to the FACT that YOU are NOT a spokesperson for two thousand years worth of
Next you claim to understand Christian teachings and claim that "you are damned to hell if you don't accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and
Saviour"... again, depending on your understanding of "hell", this may, or may not be true... a complex issue indeed that I, for one, will not
attempt to tackle here, in this forum, at this time.
You also claim, "Religions have not delivered societies of which humanity can be proud?"... and so I see your dilemma... you see the role of
religion in society to structure, police, defend, teach, etc. etc? I think the problem you are experiencing here is due to your own expectations
regarding the role of religion in society...
You decide to judge Abraham and go on to condemn all followers of the three big religions... thus trying to give yourself some kind of moral and
intellectual high-ground... which makes you incredibly vain and egotistical in my opinion... not good traits, brother man.
Your claim that, "The most intelligent people on earth are atheists, agnostics and gnostics while the least intelligent are the followers of the
Abrahamic religions" is entirely without substance and quite an ignorant statement in its entirety. Of course you have absolutely NOTHING to support
such a claim... therefore this statement is purely conjecture... and thus, nonfactual and false.
There are more problems with your post, but I am sure the aforementioned points are sufficient for you to consider at leisure. I hope you one day find
your path and whatever pain you have suffered is relieved entirely...
