    Also what are those more easy ways of manipulating people? Are you pointing at mass media? And lastly you state that religion isn't bad just because you CAN manipulate, I say Religion is bad because people DO manipulate, it already happens.
    Um. Well, incase you didn't know, about 9/10 of everyone on the planet is religious. If you havent seen a lot of people, then you should go outside.

    Why would i point to the mass media? "The media is bad" is the only thing that will come to.

    What i'm stating is that saying people are being manipulated by something is kind of stupid. I bet people are manipulated by movies, but do i still go see them, yes.

    Just saying all religion is meant to do is manipulate people, well that in itself is stupid.

    As for your first point, that isn't what I meant I was replying to this:

    So many people don't believe? Me, that's not really an argument either.
    << I never brought that in as an agrument.


    Movies, books and other things like that, aren't exactly the same as religion, movies/books are ment to amuse, inspire and to teach (and to manipulate :P)
    but people take books and movies less serious than religion. after seeing a movie we laugh about it, maybe we learn't something new (or we think we did) but after a while we forget all about it.

    living in a strict religious eviroment is different, it's a waste. Why live following stict rules for nothing? why live in fear for something that maybe doesn't even exist? (for people believing an Allah or God or another omnipotent beeing) Religion was ment to explain, to teach and to help living a good life. We have the explaination, we have laws, we have teacher teaching us. We should no longer fear something that was spawned from our own fantasies. We should cut the cr*p and do good because it is good, not because some old book full of fairly tails (or maybe realy stories) tells us to do good.

    Wait, are you trolling? Come on, you gotta be trolling. No one could possibly have such a poor understanding of evolution, with the possible exception of evangelical Christians.

    At this point I'm surprised there are some people who still think evolution is a ladder, makes me facepalm and cringe every time i hear "Evolution says I evolved from monkeys."

    Then you too have a poor understanding of the evolutionary process.

    I suggest going to see that new movie with Denzel Washington "The Book of Eli". It kinda explains this subject. Religion is good and bad. I myself don't really connect myself with any specific religion becuase of how corrupt it is. Buddhism is probably honestly the best religion at sticking to its values, but I like it becuase its more of philosophy then religion. I believe in a higher power simply becuase of the odds of our being were so rare too even happen. I have yet to see how an entire world based on balance would allow something to evolve to the level its capable of destroying or improving everything around them. Humans do not fit into the balance of the world, by nature were given the power to create or destroy, were given choice unlike all other animals who fit a cycle. Religion though has been corrupted in so may ways, Its on thing to spread the word, and another too force feed it to someone. Terrorist muslims sending out children to blow up bombs, women being beaten to death and raped, crusades, hangings and burnings. We are given the choice by higher power to create life better for ourselves or destroy and become corrupt. Life from beginning to end is constantly learning things. Religion teached us too behave and think better then animals, and thats the true point of it.

    Religion isn't bad. It's the extremist's that make it bad, fortunately, that can be solved with a few bombs dropped.

    Take Muslims for instance. Following the religion isn't bad. The ones who take it to extremes (derka's) force a bad look upon it.
