HMMMMmmmmmmmmm, where do I start.
1. Pedophile prophets/senseless war starters(none of their followers have an issue with this lol)
2. Treating women like property and 2nd class citizens
3. There's a million religions who all think they right and the others are wrong
4. The most tragic moments in human history came from religion being involved some kind of way
5. Pregnant virgins
6. People walking on water
7. Dividing people
8. Talking snakes
9. Magical garden that has never been found
10. No mention of the dinosaurs or other planets in the galaxy
11. Constant retellings over the years
12. Shitloads of inconsistencies and just flat out fake shit
13. A woman coming from a mans rib bone
14. Makes people think they are better or know more about the world than others
15. Most Religious people/religions(not all) usually denounce common sense(like science)
16. It's pretty much nothing but a hustle now at days or just makes people feel better about being a fuck up
All that shit I listed is fucking madness. The people who follow it look like mindless drones to the free thinking people of the world. religion hasn't progressed shit!!! It's actually held us back when you really take a look at history.
On some real real real shit though. I'm just gonna say this as clear as possible. 90% of all you "enlightened" religious folks are fake as fuck and you really aint bout that religious life. If you actually are, you aint 100% comfortable with it. Y'all aint no different from us none religious folks, except the fact that we don't think we're going to a better place than the rest of human kind when we die.
And don't say you aint fake and break the rules of your faith every fucking minute every day. WE ALL KNOW YOU OR SOMEBODY LIKE YOU!! So more than likely you aint no special case. We see the fakeness all day everyday with y'all on here and everywhere else.
You are not special!
You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake!
You're not your job!
You're not how much money you have in the bank!
You're not the car you drive!
You're not the contents of your wallet!
You're not your fucking khakis!
You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else!
We're all part of the same compost heap!
We're all singing, all dancing crap of the world.
What's good IC,
This thread is for my atheist/agnostic brothers and sisters out here.
Atheists/agnostics, list the reasons you don't believe in a Higher Power/God/Creator/Most High or whatever title you choose (or don't choose). Especially dealing with biblical doctrine.
Also What is your concept or idea of (a) God(s)?
I believe in a higher power but not the Abrahamic God. I use the terms God, Jah, Higher Power, etc. for namesake. I know that there is something that created the world we live in. I do not believe that there is one God because people have different beliefs/customs/rituals which define/govern their lives. Who am I to say that they are wrong because they don't have the same belief system as me.
I have chosen to take a more spiritual/self examination approach to life. Religion (by definition a set of beliefs that is held by a group of people) has broken the seam of intellectual thinking. I have had several experiences over my lifetime that have shaped the way that I feel and think about religion.
One of the major issues for me with religion is that there are too many questions that cannot be answered to my liking. And yes I said my liking because in order for me to fully accept something I must have a complete understanding or at least a concrete understanding of what I am getting myself into.
Especially the bolded. (although to my liking.. well maybe just answers in general) And whenever I have questioned a member of a church or relatives etc, the answer is always that you must have faith and if you don't have faith then you don't believe. I find it interesting that many I have talked to want me to accept all of this on faith when I don't accept many areas of my life on just blind faith.
It feels like sometimes we humans are taught to question everything but religion.
*I will say that I have just found this thread and still reading through the answers, glad to see a good discussion on this topic so far*
Yeah we are way overpopulated in the sense that we can't all live peaceful in our current worlds model at the rate we are growing. Of course there is room to accommodate but it becomes about resources, being able to offer lives to the increasing number of people. As the population increases it just creates a larger gap between the rich and the poor which will end up being the biggest problem associated with over population. Countries will cripple fast.
