Religions hold on the world is slowly falling into nothing. The fucking catholic church has changed its ideas on science so many times that that fact alone makes all of religion bullshit. The catholic church just released recently something along the lines of space exists or their look into a space program... they are clawing at anything they can get their hands onto to make their religion seem less like a pile of bullshit.

Look at where religion is most strongly represented, it is in countries where there isnt much else as far as the advancement of the standard of living. Religion is an old form of making yourself feel less bad about ur standings in society, its to take your mind off the fact that you live in a hut and tomorrows meal may or may not be on the table. In the more advanced societies who have found science, who have made strives forward in the standard of living, religion has little to no place. In places where free thinking is something that is valued, religion is something that is not a part of everyday life. I mean people go to church, but how many of those poeple in the church/temple/monastery/mosque, are actually full on believers, or is it just a tradition on X-mas/Passover/Ramadan? Im a jew and i for sure as hell do not believe in god and the Jewish religion is the least fanatic out of all of them aside from Buddhism.

Im all for people developing something that allows them to convey their morals they want to live their lives by in some sort of story form or writing, but the way it is done now through religion is wrong, organized religion is like government, it can get to powerful at which point the people are swayed into blowing themselves up thinking they will get 1000 virgins for doing it. Religion should be something personal or nothing more than where people talk about their beliefs on a forum, not where people can be swayed... it is too dangerous for the weak minded folks.

Fanatics: A Fanatic is one who cant change his mind and wont change the subject. - Churchill.

Aside from old age and disease, Religion is the #1 killer in the history of man kind, it is the source for almost every single war and all in all, there aint no god other than maybe the devil which would support such action, thus, ur god doesnt give a shit about how much you pray cause hell send u to hell for being such a moron and wasting ur time talking to ur ceiling for 5 minutes every night.

I said that i feel people should be able to believe what they want to believe without persecution. However, organized religion is the enemy here and that is why i have an issue.

Personal Opinion:
1) Religion is a crutch for the weak mind which is exploited by the intelligent
2) Religion is bullshit
3) God does not exist
4) Intellect is derived from rational thinking, a bush randomly bursting into flame is not rational.
4) Spiritual thinking is all good and well but it is not what we are arguing about it is about religion and the existence of god and how it has effected humanity:

while taking a look at where the countries in this world stand in a comparison of "how the standard of living is" "and how advanced the country is", how many of them include religion within their laws verse those who have made laws and the progression of society secular leaving religion for the weekends?

All of Europe is separate, North American, america's and canada's laws are separate from religion, Australia is free from religion having an strong impression on their laws, Russia is secular in its laws, china and hong kong are all secular entities. Even fucking Israel is secular with regard to its laws. I am no expert but the countries with laws heavily derived from their religion are the most F-ed up.
All the worlds leaders have secular governments. Its like a car, if the model T was the best car ever made and it was still the best, it would be on top and we would be using it, but its not, and the model t is outdated and unfit for this modern world. Religion is the model T that has seemed to stick around some how.

*all those above in the secular category have tenants about freedom of religion which is about the only mention. that and persecution based on religion should be illegal.

The number one reason the middle east is so messed up is because their religion is unchanging and impossible to negotiate with. There is a tenant that anything in the koran is unchangeable... how fucking precious and Full of yourself (brain fart for the right word) do you have to be to believe that your words are final until the end of time? That, and all the countries include law from their religious writings in their countries laws, it just doesnt work because religion does not account for technological gain and overall progress of society. That is why they are stuck where they are. That is why i do not like organised religion and feel it has no place in a modern world.

However, back to the spiritual argument. Be as spiritual as you want, i feel that everyone needs to be somewhat spiritual and release logical thinking for some time during each day. I and no one else should have no problem with that, however, the second you try to pull me in, or press your spiritual bullshit upon other people is the point where the line needs to be drawn.

Another point, intellectual and spiritual thinking are two different things. you cannot really compare the two, they are used in different parts of your life and pertain to different things.

Why can't Heaven and Hell just be the direct rewards and consequences of our actions on Earth? Like when you insult someone and feel bad, that's your atonement. If we worried more about what happens as a result of our idiocy HERE, rather than some abstract, most-likely (99.9bar%)-nonexistant location, whose vacancy we occupy post-mortem, maybe the world wouldn't be full of...well, the world. Also, I want to come on out and say that The Bible isn't a history book. That's retarded. It's more of an Aesop's Fables deal (without grammar, of course.)
On a final note, look back on virtually every war humanity has seen. Religion is right at the root. I don't care if someone disagrees with my atheistic Satanism (A religion founded on LOGIC!? WHAAAT!?), but I don't cram it down people's throats with a funnel of illogical thought. All I ask is that I'm treated in kind.

(This isn't that, by the way. This is posting my opinion on a public forum. To reply to be exactly what I'm coining as "a douchebag move.")

k i often struggle with religion n my views. I am not one to jump into believing something because alot of people belief it. they said smoking weed is a gateway drug did i believe no but it was a gateway to happiness.lol. but n e who. I dont believe in alot of the bible. I was raised all my life my devote church going christians but i have my reasons. I DO BELIEVE IN A GOD. I dont believe in the bible because it contradicts it self. Adam then Eve then Kane N Abel so where did the next generation come from. EVE? she gave births to hundreads. Really? Then Kane kills Abel but Kane has kids. were is the other woman? did he have sex with his mom? also theres a story were a dude is "too drunk to recognize" his only two daughters on two different days and impregnates them both.sounds like bull. so unless someone can answer my biblical questions im nt gna finish reading the bible. God is real I believe. but if anything is correct in the bible i believe god did create us in his image. So God looks n acts however you are. My god has dreads he's black smokes weed an has a highdeas account.lol

You don't use the Bible to prove God exists, you use the entire universe.

I would have rather lived like there was a GOD, and found out there was not, than to live like there was not a GOD and found out there was. Science and religion, the same thing, one is why, the other is how. I believe in a greater entity than any and all of us....that is the basic idea of religion. of course people will use religion against you in anyway they can,......Google videos, keyword: Zeitgeist....our surroundings are a divine communication, because of relativity....ask Einstein...

to all the people that say this is bashing religion, its not, speaking the truth isnt bashing...i see a fat person i say "that bro is fat" its not like he isnt fat. The only thing that proves God created the Earth is The Bible which God also wrote (or had pple write) its called faith. u dont have to lose yr shit when someone talks about God

Why do you people always bash on Christianity?

Smoking weed is supposed to bring peace and acceptance not make fun of others for their personal beliefs.

You people are bringing a bad name to highdeas, you give stoners a bad name.

Bob Marley would be ashamed of this website at this point.

except they claim the bible was written by many different prophets. many of the stories were predictions and were interpreted as historical facts because some of the predictions actually happened. to be fair the harry potter books are more reliable as being true than the bible, because movies were made where almost all of the events of the harry potter books actually happened.

It depends on which parts of the Bible you look at. Much of it may or may not be factual, but all I can currently recall in my baked state are essentially true. (Okay, so the New Testament's a lot more useful than the old, but the old is more amusing.)
