Now, let me clearly state at the beginning of this thread, I am NOT trying to call anyone out on their personal religious views. Personally, I respect
all religions and believe that you all have the right to believe what you will, with out others interfering.
Now to pose a few simple questions..
What makes you're religion correct?
Lets take a step back from your religious ideas for a second, has it ever occurred to you that the vast majority of religions are focused around the
same ideals and common 'good' and 'evil' interaction? At least speaking in terms of the mainstream religions, what makes your religion superior to
They are all centered around the same common beliefs that good is good and evil is evil, do no evil, strive to do good.
Why is you're God superior to others?
Now, here are where the firestorms come; "Well, my God is the one true God because of.. (written word, it is foretold, etc.) Okay, so now that we see
how firm you are on your stance, explain why the man half way around the globe (keep in mind that he is just as firm in his God as you are in yours)
is wrong? You both have basically the same stories, same characters, just different names. So what makes yours correct?
I was raised Christian, and have extremely devote Christian parents, so I understand religion (at least Christianity) in its entirety. However as I
was growing, and having these views shoved down my throat, I began to question what makes Christianity right. It started to become clear that we all
have these same views, yet we segregate ourselves based on names, and little else.
Now, why would you be willing to bash others religion?
The largest point made to believers and non believers alike is quite simple, we do not know.
We do not know which religion is right, we have no idea whose deity is correct, if there is even one at all. So why bash others? When it comes down to
it, we do not know, so how can you commend others for their belief? We could all be wrong, for all we know a giant bottle of ketchup could have
I know that the majority of people on here have an open mind, and I also know that strong religious views are losing their grip on the world, which is
quite frankly a breath of fresh air. Perhaps we will see the day when there are no more wars over religion, perhaps one day we will release from the
narrow minded grasp that so many are caught in.
Again, I am not bashing. I believe that any single one of us could be right. I am just questioning those who are so strong in there belief
Why do you believe?
