First of all, every religion states that if you do not follow it then you will go to hell. I'll see every single one of you there then shall I?
So, we're off to a bad start. I feel it is important to remind everybody that there is not 1 single piece of hard evidence that religion is real. How can there be? It's supernatural. Nobody's parting the ocean, building arks, turning wine into water etc... All fictional stories created over the years. You name it, it did not/could not have happened. In fact, many a story about witches were the creation of somebody eating wild mushrooms and believing the person in front of them was evil due to their psychedelic trip.
God did not create the earth, let alone in 7 days. Come on, the majority of us have the Discovery channel these days.
Stigmatism - simple chemical reaction when clasping hands together, as the 2 diff chemicals, one on each hand, are mixed. Also it is always covered up the rest of the time from wearing gloves. See St Frances of Asissi(sp), the crazy nut job that he was.
The Virgin Mary - Not very likely, is it?
Now we have the fact of all the terrible things that happen in the world, namely natural disasters. If there is a god, he's a bit shit at it.
I offer to sell my soul to the devil every day for the want of an awesome millionaire rock-star lifestyle, yet i'm still here working like a slave in the middle of the desert surrounded by muslims who think i'm satanic for not actually believing in a religion. Sometimes they're so shocked at the news there is people out there who do not believe in allah that they are completely stuck for words. Most of them, completely brainwashed. Who has the right to tell them they can't drink alcohol, have sex before marriage, get tattoos etc etc?? Seriously, who has the right?
My mother is a devout Christian, she's happy and she has faith, she is a lovely caring woman who dedicates all her time to helping others. I'm happy for her and glad she has this in her life, but deep down, even she knows it's all a lie. It just gives her a social curriculum and allows here to meet and mingle with other very nice people.
This may spark many different reactions, but hey, you asked.
I personally don't have time to be religious and i'm having way too much fun to be tied down to rules and religious beliefs.
So who believe's in the toothfairy then?
