My, My, My. All the foul mouthed people who “Call” themselves “Christian” and criticize you?? It once again shows ME(who was once a very strong Christian) that religion is a big farce. I’ve been trying long and hard to avoid this conclusion, but my studies in science, world religions and anthropology have convinced me otherwise. The intolerance of many of the ‘religions’ and the obvious comments from so called religious people is an example of this, not to mention Islam! For those whose comments are so childish, only shows their lack of intelligence, and the very thing religion does. – cause division. Why can’t they tolerate other’s beliefs?
I applaud you for sharing your beliefs in a non-judgemental way and am curious how you came about to being an athiest.
I don’t know if I’d call all religion a farce, in the sense that there are some very intelligent religious people, and in the sense that there are many religions which were probably not created for the sole purpose of deceit.
That said, there seem to be far, far too many people who profess to religions and systems of morality that they don’t really practice. You don’t see nearly enough “turning the other cheek” from supposed Christians, for example. I honestly think the world would be a better place if everyone had well-considered beliefs and we all agreed that those childish people you mention should just be ignored until they went away.
