Re: Let’s Talk
parnakas, I've always said that there is no reason to assualt religion, but when you look at it logically, religion pushes belief onto others, not the other way around.
And Space has a huge part and important role in religion. if for example aliens were to come to this planet and tell us the origins of the universe, the religious beliefs are instantly nullified. that's just how it is.
Religion is indeed a set og guidelines on how to live your life well and healthy. But let's face it, if you're obeying the commands and beliefs of another person, are you really living your life?
I was raised Christian. By the age of seven or eight i figured it all out. Christianity especially, traps you into thinking if you leave the religion, you'll burn in hell. it reinforces this with the threat of The Rapture. Live your life as we say so, and you'll be blessed in the afterlife. If there isn't an afterlife, what have you accomplished by living your one and only life by the rules and commands of another?
This is my opinion, and I call it false hope. Its occult.
And now after saying all this, I'll probably get every religious person after my blood because I don't belive them. I've never liked the phrase, “You can't argue with religion”. ~I do. Especially when I often know more about the religion than the other person does…
Ok, your probably going to own me with some intense story like comment, but i want to try to discuss.
the first thing you said, i disagree. Religion is forced upon you as a small child, yes, but that is so you learn what is wrong and right early on (manners pretty much). By the age of 10, i think people are smart enough to make their own choices, and they can choose to believe what they want.
That thing you said here : “But let's face it, if you're obeying the commands and beliefs of another person, are you really living your life?”…. once again, as a small child i dont think we have any understanding of what the world is about. Once we get older, religion is then a choice. So, if you choose to believe someone else's commands and beliefs, that is your choice on how you want to live your life.
At an older age, i think we all know that hell is not a firey place with a little devil guy with horns, but its a place without happiness.
im not saying that what you are saying is wrong though, as a small child, religion IS forced upon you. Plz reply shade, i really like discussions with you!!
