One question that always comes to my mind is the question what religion is.
It is a wonderful thing that has helped so many people get up even in their darkest days, that has brought hope to so many lost souls that thought there was no meaning to life. Yet religion has also started so many wars, has made people hate others that didn’t follow their beliefs.
I personally would call myself an atheist. I used to believe in a god, but then I realized how huge this universe is, and that the god that is described in the bible just doesn’t fit in. I hold the opinion that this earth would be a better place without religion.
A lot of people say that if we didn’t have religion we wouldn’t have morals. I do not share that opinion. So many religious people have killed others. Sometimes even driven by their beliefs. 72 virgins a day keep the doctor away, hm?
What also bugs me is that so many Christians have never read the bible. Please, don’t refer to passages in the bible that you haven’t even read. You don’t like gay people because god doesn’t either? Well, tell me the passage in the bible that says so. Then we can talk.
