Is fighting over property and resources a mental illness too: because that's what a society does and is indeed why it needs itself to survive!

Religion gave you everything!




What is superior. The deity, or the religious machination that pretends to represent that deity?
So in your version, did the deity give everything, or did the religion that uses that deity give everything?


The trouble with religion is it's fictions slows down evolutional quantum leaps. It's like a wet blanket.

If you want to call religion a fiction then you are calling your society a fiction as it was built on it!

How do you get food in your mouth: religion!

How do you exist: religion!

How does everyone get to hear your freaky ideas on gay marriage via the Internet: religion!

Without religion you would be a fiction!

Your evidence is your opinion, not a fact.

I exist because of the holodeck creates this planetary illusion. Meanwhile my body is safe, in status, while the space ship warps across universal space. So religion is an illusion of the holodeck program.

And you are a great example why all children should be protected from religious zealots.

You have already admitted you would abandon your children because of your religious beliefs. That infers you are not suitable to parent.

Religion has a place in civilized society.

In some people, there is a need to have the security of a parent like omnipotent being to protect and look after them.

Good religions teach people how to live with kindness and in an altruistic way.
They help those less fortunate and give of themselves, gaining self worth not otherwise available.

Bad religions impose draconian requirements and preach bigotry, always demanding more and more of their followers, from monetary to personal commitment in the extreem.

A religion safe in its truth has no issues with its followers talking to and mixing openly with other religions.
A religion or cult that knows it has only lies as its mantra, will forbid its followers from mixing, afraid that they will see the truth that theirs takes more than it gives.

There in nothing wrong or mentally unstabe with religion
It how the religion is interpreted and enforced that creates mental illness.



This should probably be awarded Post of the Day if not of The Week



Religion has a place in a civilised society.
Yes, the museum.

Religion : supposed to create attributes like goodness, kindness, altruistic ... so these people if not influenced by religion would be the opposite?

That's crap. It's religion being used to pretend superiority. It's implying if you are not religious then you can't be a decent person.



Why would you wish to pervert someones belief in a diety?

What would you gain from destroying someones faith, especially when it is in no way presenting any danger or causing you any angst?

One could say the same thing about the LGBTIQ mob, and that there is no such thing as percieved different sexes or what they feel.

There is a far stronger argument for religion than LGBTIQ  mantra.

Leave people alone
If they wish to worship a diety, as long as it in no way harms you, thats no business of yours, is it?

The alternative coukd be far worse.
Imagine people saying, " Who cares, it dont matter, Ill just do whatever I like to anyone I like"

Are you judging me on hypotheticals?

Wow, it's no wonder you gaylords have been rejected by society as completely psychotic and dangerous for Millenia!

Defeating the devil: why exorcism in Australia is on the rise

Exorcism is on the rise worldwide, backed by no less a figure than Pope Francis. In Australia, Peter Munro meets some of our foremost demon wranglers, and people who say they've had their souls saved.

No it is not a private matter since mental illness nurture means it is passed down generations.

Time to break the cycle by protecting all children from religious dogma.
