just something i want to say about religion

Every religion. Every single little one. Each one different in its own way. But everyone of them the same. they are the same because it really means something to someone. I say we team-up. We include everyone's religion and make one big ass religion. We will call it, "Religion."
Say you are catholic, well your catholic beliefs are in there. You a buddahist...That's in there too. Muslim, Islam and every other religion IS "Religion." Now this way you either believe in something or you don't. And no one is wrong. Well except for you and me. For one you dont even believe and I do. Just a battle between me and you. Like its always been...except this time, its Religion vs. No Religion. probably still wont answer some of Life's secrets...But at least every other religion isnt always 'wrong.' In this case, only 2 people are wrong.

We are wrong anyways, All of us. So why not get along and try to make it right?

As you pointed out, relegion is just that teaming up ...Sometime back, real back, many had similiar ideas ...and they knew the need for teaming up to survive here .... they felt the supernatural powers and they confide in that ....they called it a religion...Any views ???

that wouldnt work because everybody would start debating on which of their idea's was right, then they'd break back off into their former religions.. what we'd have to do is completely erase everybody's memory except for a select few who share this idea.. then we could raise everybody in this religion and it would therefore go over very well.. now all we need is a giant one of those flashy thingies like on men in black.. damn i got 5 bucks how bout you guys..

ya very true ...if there is one relegion people will start making groups within that and fight ..... and ideas of strong influential people, everyone will have to accept ... so we have to first strip off all the power and position of the entire world, make everyone of equal magnitude and power with respect to position and then implement our very own idea ...Wat say ?

that also won't work because there will always be radical retards our there that take everything waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to seriously.. oh and the part of the sixties that had to do with respecting each other and getting along.. that died almost two years ago when those psycho radical muslims flew a couple a planes into some buildings over here in the US.. its pretty hard to respect those who killed a few thousand people for their religion.. sorry dont mean to be a downer i just had to get that out..

bollocks and wank, it never died because it never started, the US has been bulling people since it became a superpower, its klilled way more people that 9/11 did, in non war time.

your post is kinda scary, because it seems to suggest a kinda "US only" mind set, and by that i eman, you belive that this respect has been going on until that happend, until YOUR world was broken into, its time you realsied people around the world have been dealing with tragadies like this for decades, eons.

well then fuck it. guess not everyone has a mindset like me...or maybe i'm just full of it?


i dont see why...how come not everyone, can understand someone else. why does that person have to be wrong, just because this one dude says he is? why not just take his own beliefs, keep his mouth shut, and just soak it in. it doesnt matter whether or not its the truth. its obviously the truth because this guy thinks it. but why does someone else have to come and fuck it up for him, saying he is wrong, when he isnt?

i dont know, i guess like i said, we are all wrong. but wtf, lets team up. im sure if enough people actually got down to do it, people would see something. notice it. it doesnt matter what you believe in, just as long as you believe.

think people need to be more open minded about things. espcially in what they believe in.

I always thogut religion was a very personal thing. The world shudnt care abt my religion n my God. Satan can be my God its none of thier business but the problem w/ us humans is that we need power and power would indirectly mean contorlling other ppl.
Thats where the fact of religious fanaticism comes in. Ppl fight against one another 2 establish their superiority over one another and like it or not religion is the most apt factor for this fight for dominance. Darwins theory proves 2 b correct no matter how peaceful we r.

it's a nice idea, but it will never work. the human race is too ignorant to get along that well and work together for the good of everyone. it's a nice thought though.

aren't human flaws just grand? ignorance is bliss. religion, to me, is just something to ease a person's mind. something to fall back on and really shouldn't be something to debate over.

DEKA_Alpha has a little shameless behavior in the past
Religion is pointless why care if you burn in Hell in agony for all eternity, find perfect bliss in heaven, if you are reincarnated, or suffer some other fate during or after life.

I don't care what happens. I expect when I die I will see nothing and feel nothing. I expect there to be only a void and that I will simply stop existing. I don't care if I'm not special, I don't care if I am not original, I don't care if there is no meaning to life and I don't care if there is. I live for one and only one reason because I can. I don't care, no reason to.

Pleasure and pain are the same thing. Burn me, fuck me, slap me, suck me. There isn't a difference between pleasure and pain only intensity. No point to care if I die and I end up in bliss or torment. No reason to care what happens to me during or after life. There is nothing that could happen during or after life that could make me care. Without the ability to create fear or hope I see no reason to believe in or practice religion.

The strong live and the weak die.
