I was having a discussion with a co-worker today and we were arguing on how religion in general, no to simply pick on Christianity or Islam, dissuades its followers from believing in science. Now the guy I was arguing with is a christian, so he basically rejects the simplest scientific notions out there and believes that we are descendants of adam and eve and that the world was created by god in 7 days.
Despite telling him that a lot of the stories in the bible are widely misinterpreted and that there is no concrete evidence for a lot of the stuff he believed in, the guy just wouldn't have it. Its like to him there are no flaws the Christian religion.

To know that there are people out there who are adamant about such beliefs shocks me a bit. I mean if you think about it for a minute, its this kind of mentality that leads to fanatiscism. Whether its faith in the almighty I don't know but I do know that a lot of these guys that follow God's word contradict themselves in other occasions. Same thing with Islamics; they praise peace and unity when at the same time there's an ongoing conflict between the Shiite and Sunni that has been going on for hundreds of years.

And the thing that gets at me the most is how millions of people can believe a lot of the bogus shit some of these religious institutions say with contradictions and their fear of god sorrounding every statement. From believing in a blue eyed god to that scientology spacecraft bs, somehow I think its all a facade to control the masses.

With that being said, I am not an atheist. Maybe agnostic because I don't believe in any type of religious man made institution, yet I do think that there is something out there with a higher force that makes the world move.
If it seems like I'm hating on any religious individual out there I'm not, on the contrary, I'd like to hear your case...Intrigue me..

So spit yo shit n add yo 2 cents..
ONE LOVE

yea i hate those ignorant christians like wtf soooo much scientific proof but they live off stuff in a book full of childrens stories. If god loves all why do children starve to death everyday? To show example? I think 1 kid dying is enough why cant the niggga jesus come down and break some bread into 498503485408574trillion pieces??



Yeah, i hear that a lot.. Like if they could differiate the stuff they hear on sunday mornings to the actual shit that happens I think it would spit more truth to the masses.. instead of doing this n that or taking extreme measure which is the case for muslims...prayin 20x a day.. man if u believe in god then u got him in your heart u don't gotta do all that shit..

no hate though

i believe in something bigger then us, i don't know what it is but i do believe in god or jesus or whatever he is, i just have a problem with the bible, that book has been revised so many times and says one thing is not good but god is a symbol of love so i feel sometimes religion is some sort of mind control for the masses so u can live ur life this way so u can go to the happy place but if u don't become christian or catholic u are going to hell and live in damnation forever so i really don't believe in organize religion and i don't knock it but i just have my questions about it.

I agree yo. I being thinking sometimes that religion is a mind control for the masses. But then again ppl like me are scared about what if all the God, Heavn, Hell thing is real so then we turn Christian so that if it is real we got something to fall back on. Feel me?


Yea but then you'd be brushin off those other religions who have a different concept of god like The Buddhists, Hindus, and others ones that dont come to mind.. What i mean tho is who's to say their god or concept is wrong and our western counterparts are right... know what i mean shit trips me out.

Naw, actually I needed something besides my carpet to release my jizz on and a frivulous book called the Bible was there to guide my semen.

A rebel would be telling someone on an internet forum that he's a rebel.

ME personally i came from a REALLY religious fam. my grandma would go to chruch every sunday morning and she never missed any sunday morning mass or if she did she goes to church at noon time for like 20 something years real talk. but now i sometimes think that what's written in the bible is BS and stuff, yaknow? cuz when you spend time with yourself you realize alotta things. I don't believe in anything for now i just don't think about it that much. I don't even go to church no mo like i used to when i was little with my aunts and stuff.

I am a firm follower of Catholicism. I believe in many religious institutions and ideas, but also disagree with some. I too believe religion, the Bible, whatever has its contradictions. That said, I am a firm believer in God as well as Catholicism (like I said earlier).

There are seriously some disrespectful asses in this thread.

I was raised Baptist, but i consider myself somewhat of a Deist. I belive in God and whatnot, i just honestly dont belive he/she intervines in our lifes. The way i see it, There would be no point in God giving us Free Will if he/she was going to intervine a willy nilly. I do beive everyone was born for a specific reason, but getting there is solely up to you.

From a logical standpoint, this is correct. Free thought can be defined as having infinite will to do what you want and learn what you want. Religion causes you to have belief in something that is so narrow-minded that it corrupts your sense of thought.

Religion is nothing more than geographical location and imperialist capitalization between countries.
