Wildtimes i appreciate your openess to dialogues so i'l say that i see a pattern in your posts.
You appear to find any reasons to discredit and insult holy books. Here i'l agree with godlover, so you did manage to unite a christian and a muslim!
Are you on a personal crusade to eradicate all religions? Or at least awaken people about the horrible REALITY of religions!!!
suddenly old, dead threads of mine are being revived. Wonder what that's about? People looking into my history? If so, that's cool..... it
doesn't really matter, though.
To answer your question:
you are correct that I discredit
I am on a "personal crusade" to UNDERSTAND why people still buy into the antiquated and obsolete stories that those "holy books" include.
The good messages contained in each of them have become lost in translation, and twisted by fundamentalists and others, and are used as "weapons"
with single phrases or statements being taken out of context.
I want to contribute to finding the common denominator, and eradicating hatred, ignorance, and violence. I have also been interacting on here for
nearly two years, and my ideas have evolved and changed.
has evolved and changed.
I don't expect anyone to "convert" or to "eradicate" religion on account of my points of view. But I will never shrink from saying that
'handbooks about life' need to be edited to fit the times.....and those who cling to fantastic stories from centuries ago as literal truth -- even
in the face of current knowledge, discoveries, linguistic and social change that is profound -- ought to carefully assess the REASONS they believe in
whatever parts of them they embrace.
