ok let's take what you say and look at it: world is flat? not religiously motivated world is square? not religiously motivated we are center of the universe? not religiously motivated the sun revolves around us? not religiously motivated sneezing is a sign of the devil? not religiously motivated or even claimed by religion being left handed is a sign of the devil? not a sign of the devil, but the left side, in almost all religions or beliefs, is associated with bad luck and that the devil lurks. the earliest humans lived for hundreds of years? never once stated by any religious source. one time was one person given long life in the bible, once. adam and eve are true and were all products of incest? but also could be true due to other passages where people are separated. gingers are witches? not religiously motivated praying will cure disease and w/e? oh ok, so those inoperable diseases and w/e that science is baffled by that the person beats that science still can't understand, yet the person and their family prayed time and time again can't be chalked up to a miracle? god loves you, is kind and forgiving and has a plan for you.. but will condemn you to eternal damnation, suffering, pain and torture for living out that plan? actually, what you just said yup to makes absolutely no sense. if you live out the plan he has for you, then you would not be condemned. see this shows your absolute ignorance of what religion is about. (if hes real and religion is to be believed.. unless your catholic and buy yourself an indulgence) - this only happened during a period of time when the catholic church was extremely corrupt. you make sweeping generalizations and assumptions based on google and whatever people tell you. you admittedly have never read the bible, so therefore you have absolutely NO concept or knowledge of what it is about or says, so you have absolutely no right to speak on the subject, and in doing so you sound like a fuckin moron. throughout history, you are completely incorrect. for certain periods of history, yes, religion was used as the guiding force throughout the land, and some religious figures were corrupt and did wrong things, but more often then not they were not. no religious leader has done anything worse than a normal leader. you're caught up in this "anti-God" thing which you just believe blindly without looking for facts. of course you're going to bring up the rare cases of people fucking up, and then you're going to bring up the crusades. let's stop for a second and act like God doesn't exist, and you're the only person on earth who knows it. are you going to go around and tell people God is fake even though their beliefs are leading them to do miraculous acts and be great people? apparently you say people can believe whatever they want if it makes them a good person, yet in the same breath you call religion a myth, in every thread related to God you bash him, religion and anyone who follows religion and call them all idiots and that they have no intelligence etc. etc. so in reality, you're a hypocrite that is still just as dumb to anything outside of your own opinion which has no basis in fact other than that's what you believe. no other basis. you're an idiot. stop arguing about subjects you have no knowledge on. if you truly believe that whatever people believe that makes them a good person is ok with you, then you should never speak on a topic regarding religion calling anyone that follows it irrational and dumb and that they have no facts. you should keep your mouth shut. you have no idea what you're talking about.
