You have blind faith in something your not 100% sure exists.
Hmm, based on the evidence I've discovered about the Bible in archaeology, apologetics and history, I can safely believe in something. Who cares if I'm wrong anyway, lol. It would suck if you were, though.
I myself believe in logic and science.
I do believe in logic, although science is imperfect considering it's a human work that has been trying to perfect itself over the years. Not to discredit most science, however, considering how many Christians I know are scientists. Like my chemical engineer parents. Or my youth leader who was an aerospace engineer for NASA. Or my family's close friend who's on the verge of clinically trialing a cure for cancer at MD Anderson. But maybe the general consensus is ALL CHRISTIANS AND RELIJUS PPL MUST BE STOOPID AMIRITE
Religion prevents me from believing things that i would like to believe. I dont care what you believe in, thats your own choice, but i was just stating the reasons i dislike the concept of religion.
That's all fine and dandy but it had little to do with the thread lol.
I grew up interested in Planets and the Stars at a young age, and as i got older i realized religion was preventing me from believing in Life in the Universe.
That is something people constantly told me, so guess what i would rather believe in life on another planet, then some old guy that sits on a cloud and some how knows everything about everything but not where he came from or the purpose of life.
ok buddy, i dont want to hear, your religious non sense. You have blind faith in something your not 100% sure exists. I myself believe in logic and science. Religion prevents me from believing things that i would like to believe. I dont care what you believe in, thats your own choice, but i was just stating the reasons i dislike the concept of religion. Now that that is done with, Can you please not post on my profile again if your planning to make a negative comment going against what i believe it. I believe in multiple things, but none of them are god. I believe there is life out there in the vast universe, and many other things to discover and explore.

Im sorry but religion is created to explain what other people cant and i hope you can understand that in the future. Thank you
Since you were going to be so incredibly random with posting in that thread, I'll be incredibly random and reply back outside of the thread :D
But there is no physical or scientfic proof that states that there is a god or anytype of afterlife.
There's no physical or scientific proof that states there isn't a god or afterlife. You can't use physical means to prove a spiritual concept, silly. Regardless, there is a wealth of archaeological evidence that points back to the Bible, and a wealth of scripture in the Bible that is used to construct the basic history we know of the B.C. era and first centuries.
If there was a god, then logically, who created him? I mean if i was god, i would be wondering where i came from.
The idea being that He's supernatural, He was never created. He always was, and always will be, and always came before. It's all the more supernatural if you accept the fact that you can't comprehend it, because to the physical limits of your mind you can only believe that every rope has two ends. If you get into the circular thought path that everything was once created by something, you get nowhere, as scientists can't even prove how matter came into existence other than saying it spontaneously combusted in the Big Bang from expansion and collapse. Which doesn't sound so far off from "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth", eh?
You religious nuts need to stop filling our world with racist and sexist views on society.
Nuts? Very mature. Racist and sexist? Very knowledgeable about religion, are we?
44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,1 John 3:18
18 My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.
1 John 4:7
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, because love comes from God.
1 Peter 2:15
15 For God wants you to silence the ignorant talk of foolish people by the good things you do.
I mean the bible clearly treats eve as a sexual tool and is against interacial marriage.
HAHAHA this is the silliest thing I've ever heard. I'm not sure where you got the "Eve as a sexual tool" part, but as far as interracial marriage being frowned upon, I'm sure you're confusing that with the tribes of Israel and Jews commanded not to wed with the Gentiles. They were commanded not to because before Jesus came to save the sins of the earth, Gentiles were unclean from their sin, uncircumcised, and did not walk with God as the Jews did, following His commandments. After all sins were saved through Jesus, however, Gentile and Jew could be saved, uncircumcised and circumcised, and all could be saved through Him. Therefore there was no longer uncleanliness in food or Gentiles or anything of the sort. It was never a racial matter, however.
All religion does is start wars and conflict between people.
Oh, it has before, but that's religion when it's been corrupted by people who are not even following the commandments of their own beliefs. And there have been plenty of other motives behind war, more importantly politics and power.
It seperates people into ethnic groups, classes, and religous backgrounds.
I can't speak for other religions, such as Hinduism which has castes, but I'm a Christian, which I know does none of the sort.
I used to believe in god, and all that did is make me fear death a whole lot more.
Then you really weren't doing it right and clearly were not reading the Bible, which teaches you not to fear death because you would have been given eternal life through Jesus Christ.
I thought that if i broke any religious rule that i would go to hell and be tourtured by some red guy for all time.
Once again, doing it wrong. Read the Book of Acts. One Christian is not "holier" than the other, for you one is saved by faith, not by good works. If good works could save you, there would be no reason for Jesus Christ to have died, because his sacrifice was to do the impossible. Sinning as a Christian does not condemn you to Hell because God forgives you of all your sins from the moment you become one. Soo, like I said, I'm not sure where you get these ideas.
But now that ive reached the age of reason, i know that there is no such thing as god, heaven, or hell. All of those things are created to make people try to understand the things they dont.
Religion is passed down from person to person till it gets stuck in society and becomes like an addictive drug.
Christianity is certainly a lifelong addiction I would never trade for anything, considering I've been promised eternal life and redeemed of my inadequacies.
If there was no religion we would have a better world.
Hah we're heading one step closer to that already, and it's no wonder the world is going down the shitter.
