Phuck religion, how stupid can you be to believe those man made stories? A talking snake? Aburning bush? A man named Noah lives to be over 900 years old so he can build an ark to get 2 of every animal on the face of the earth on it? A giant fish swallows a man named Jonah and takes him to his destination? I could go on forever.

im happy i live in a country where religion is more or less absence. yes we have our share of religious ppl but general opinion of them is that their "those crazy religious ppl ".
the whole north ( scandinavia in perticular ) is very unreligious. NOBODY goes to church on sundays for example . some ppl may go to church on christmas but thats more of a tradition

To be honest, I'm the same way. (Want to meet up?) I only believe in God because I'm scared that if I don't he'll/she'll do something bad to me or be pissed when I die. Damn religious society.

Always seems to me that alot religious people have a pretty low opinion of the God they supposedly worship. I mean someone who says "do exactly as I say or I will burn you in hell fire for ever" seems a little bit like a terrorist to me, but then again that exactly what alot of religious people believe God threatens them with. Also what kind of sycophantic narcissistic kind of being needs to be constantly praised all the time for everything. Thanks for the food, the house, the xbox etc.

So for most religious people GOd is an egotistical terrorist who demands props for all the good stuff and throws out the "works in mysterious ways" line for any bad stuff. That is some PR work there.

Belief in a higher power is all well and good, but the stunning inconsistencies in the teachings of most religions are ridiculous.

Also, I would think not believing in God would make you a better candidate for heaven not a worse one(if it all exists etc). If you believe in God (as part of religion) then all the good actions you done in your life are probably motivated by fear of eternal punishment or cos your religious leader says you must. I.e selfish cowardly reasons. (Little extreme but a reasonable concluesion)

However, if you dont believe in God then all the good actions you did in life were out genuine commitment to doing good and were in no way selfishly seeking some eternal reward. Can't believe God would be such an unreasonable asshole as to not appreciate the difference.

Anyway my 2 cents.

Really? I thought you all worshiped Satan and listened to Dark Metal Or failing that Odin, Thor etc

Religion is fine if it isn't used as a vehicle for assholery

I'm pretty sure it's not so cut and dry. I do good things but not because I think I'll be rewarded by God but because it makes me feel good. (I mean if I were to do good things.) To be honest, I never got why you thank God if you're cured of cancer, but you don't blame him when you get cancer. The only way I would ever thank God for anything is if I'm a rapper that wins a Grammy...that's clearly God's work.
