Sexy...If you can't understand my text, then you missed out on a lot of humorous Satire, sir. Any way, the problem with your statement (I learned naturally being a programmer) is your logic base...
I probably know more about your own belief than you, so tell me what it is so we can discuss it's flaws(all beliefs have them).
Perspective is irrelevant to fact and a common cause of incorrect conclusions.
I'll inevitably fall back on the thought that most beliefs are reasonable enough to be respected and it's destructive to argue, truly. i.e. creationism verse evolutionism is a leading cause to unreliable information being commonly found now days. If both sides could get along and realize their bases are just 'theories' and not fact, and stop arguing them, then we could grow together and work on things that actually matter.
Wow ur so right but i would say that if these religions wouldnt be there non of them all this war and bad things that happens in this world.. all would be gone thats only my opinion but i'm still muslim :P

Now Toymaker I'm gonna chew your ass out for this one.
1. CREATIONISM "is a leading cause to unreliable information"
2. "just 'theories"
1) Creationism isn't a "theory", it barely comes off as a coherent hypothesis, one that can't be tested, so at best it's mental masturbation (I'd even debate that).
2) Scientific Theories are models we use to explain natural phenomenon, the evolutionary process via natural selection has been proven to occur beyond any reasonable doubt (but I guess that hasn't stopped religious zealots before).
3.Evolution, is a fact. Evolutionary Theory is a model to explain how the evolutionary process works. In scientific theories, the model gets changed all the time, some parts revised others removed (not very often) others parts added, depending on observations made.
4. We have yet to find a single species of animal that "defies" evolution (but god knows creationists have tried[I swear to God if someone brings in flagellum to this argument I'm going to kill you all]).
I always have more to say but I might go off on another tirade.
I think religion is just something made for people to believe in and have faith in, if there wasn't anything to believe where would one turn to when they hit their hardest moments in life and don't have anybody else to turn to, in reality it depends on how much faith you have to decide whether its real or not in your own mentality.
It's probably easy to estimate how much longer it'll be before we kill ourselves off but, there's no way the idiot Mayan's (who lost all their gold and were raped by spain, creating the mexican race) could have prophecized the last year of earthly life. Unless you're super religious secretly, go sacrifice some one to a volcano and find out if they were right or not.
mayan culture developed a very complicated math level dude, they predicted every damn eclipse you have seen and every fuckin eclipse you will see, and that without a telescope...they didnt kill people, those were the Aztects (another prehispanic culture), but mayan culture was a whole different thing.They developed a damn-complicated-as-hell-languaje that 'till our days isnt decoded 100%
They were polytheists,theybelieved in manymany gods, onefor the rains, one for tha war, one forevery thing they consider important, there was even a god for the sun. Life was the most sacred thing for them.
The "god" you talk about is just another invention, every fuckin god was invented by someone in an specific moment when they didnt find a reason for things that happens, not very often often, things called "miracles".
Gods are inventions of humans, nobody can see them, they are all powerful and they rule everything... thats the dream of every fuckin human being XD
And religions exploit the god believers's faith to get money from them.
Gods doesnt exist, there's nothign after death and religions are bullshit.
A sinner once, a sinner twice!! No need for confession now...
There is no sweet salvation
Your soul belongs to me
A screaming pain for redemption
My angels watch you bleed
Paroxysm, that part of my post may have been a slip up, however, the only part of evolution that is fact is, 'change over time,' and I just think a spontaneous explosion that defies all laws of physics is just as plausible as intelligent design but, you can call me crazy for making that comparison if you want. Oh and, the video doesn't apply to me because I don't have those cliche viewpoints....
...You other guys, in trying to say why religion exists, you're selecting to ignore parts of reality. There are also religions that only started for the study of imrpoving yourself, don't forget...Any way, I guess I'm still waiting for a fia fyt to break out here...
...Ad litteram, I'm more than aware of mayan history from passing the 9th grade. I really hope you aren't saying their astromony skill supports the idea that they also have mystical spiritual prophecizing powers...
