    Why Everyone Should NOT Believe in a Religion

    So I thought I'd respond to that guy

    1. It gives life more meaning.

    Without life after death, or a divine person telling you what your purpose is in life, you can now appreciate your life more! You only get one life now, so make sure it's the best one you can possibly have! Also, value other people's lives too. When they die, don't just say "whatever, I'll see them again in heaven", actually respect the life the had and what they gave the world!

    2. It makes way more logical sense.

    There are tons of points to be made here, but I think most everyone will admit there is way more scientific evidence than there is religious. Let me know if you need an example.

    3. Depend on your own morals, not someone else's!

    Sick of being told what to think (maybe not, maybe you enjoy it)? Start using your own morals! You no longer have to have a persecution complex! You can stop hating gays for no reason, stop subjugating women, start being able to be friends with people with different beliefs! You can actually love all people now!




    The list goes on. Try it out sometime! You'll feel better and you will live a better life. You only get one! (:

    You know it'd be easier to respond to "that guy" if you quoted him in the thread, I don't really see why you went through the hassle of making a thread.

    It's more of an open letter to that guy

    Stagnates forward progress, oppresses millions, justifies unethical acts etc.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Yeah but at least we wouldn't have a huge part of societal beliefs based upon fairy tales.

    Doesn't matter if it seems like it's a fairytale or a real life object you want to worship (don't h8 pls Buddhists), either way people would find something to believe in since they NEED that sense of purpose in life and the feeling of having something to lean on when you're so in need.

    NOTE I'm not criticizing religion in any way, just people.

    would go to temple 10/45

    most religions that didnt sprout from any semetic origins are quite peaceful.

    1. Buddhist don't really worship the little buddha in that sense.

    2. How about bettering mankind? How about helping your fellow man?

    3. And i'm all for people leaning on religion if they need it. I'd say 99% of the time they don't though. Relying on a false support often leaves the person more crippled than they came. This is a big reason AA has horrible returns later in life.


    Again, my main problem is that religion really just inspires ignorance and false beliefs. I'm fine with a superficial crutch if you are really needing it, but the modern world doesn't need that.
