I have read your posts in other threads and know why you don't like any religion. Just because some religions don't approve of the sexual appetites
of others does not mean they are bunch of brainwashing schizophrenics talking to air.
So now my views are stereotyped because I'm gay?
Actually I like spirituality and religion very much, especially the music and chants.
Neither did I call all religious people "brainwashing schizophrenics".
There is no doubt however that religion is used for mind-control.
And from a scientific point of view (the aim of the thread, which at least partly encourages the distinction between science and religion by equating
science with religion) they are praying to the air.
If not, show me the God they are praying to.
Let us observe Him and weigh Him ... but no?
Thousands of years of praying to these Gods, but still nothing but air?
Oh well, so scientifically it is just air.
However, I did not say that science answers all the questions of life and existence.
These are philosophical questions that led some great minds to science (even if through the heretical beliefs of their time).
However, scientifically there is no proof of a God that people pray to, or such a being for which preachers or god-men collect money so that they can
buy themselves something nice.
The exploitation in this is immoral, and I don't have to be gay to point that out.
