'unsubstantiated failth' is what you term mainstream religion as?
Not all of it, but a lot of what's being trumpeted on the streets comes awfully close. When was the last time we saw a miracle that could only have
been attributed to the Christian god? Each and every instance in which a humanly conscious (as the anthropomorphic standards of the Judaic god seem to
imply) higher power should have stepped in to save its children...nothing. They died. It was a tragedy. There was a reason. What reason? No one knows.
The lord works in mysterious ways.
Well guess, what, Al Qaeda works in mysterious ways and we don't give THEM the golden pass, do we? No, it's all in how we think about the culprit.
"God" is the catch-all.
That you are alive today alone proves that such faith had been substantiated. I know not many would have studied history, but history -
records of human existance of the past till present - had provened how barbaric some tribes of mankind were.
Actually, it proves my dad drank too much one night and banged my mom without protection. My sister was the result of rape. Please, pull the Romney
card. Go ahead. I beg you.
Those tribes blamed the lightning on Thor, other tribes called on Poseidon when there was a storm at sea, still other groups claimed that Apollo
carried the sun across the sky in his chariot. That's how they explained the Niles river, right?
That's not substantiated faith. That's confusion. Sounds kinda familiar, huh?
And where did those moral and ethical guidelines for a civilisation to exist come from?.
Philosophers. Greek philosophers. Partially. And I don't believe they followed a Christian god.
Do spend more time on studying in mainstream religions, rather than living in your fantasyland of a supposed 'consciousness' which you cannot
even use history or science to explain, but that which only exists within your deluded low IQ mind.
Borderline genius, for the record. Not that it does me much good when everyone is too absorbed in their own righteousness to pay any attention.
So you're telling me my above answers are incorrect? And why would I study mainstream religion? I suppose you want me to try a few weeks as a
Catholic, too. I may as well become a politician and aim for a seat in the White House.
