I think it depends entirely on the person. I'm not a fan of religion, quite the opposite, but if it gives someone hope then I guess that's good.

I heard somewhere a saying along the lines of "you are your own god" and I prefer that.. we can achieve anything, we don't need some "god" to tell us that.. it's all about belief in self, not others :)

'spose if people truely feel they need faith to get through life it is a good thing, but I think you're sposed to live as your own person and doing that isnt following a religion or what is said in a book...
id like to believe in things like fate but im not sure agreeing that one man created the entire world is realistic.
i also dont think that people should resort to a piece of text that at some point has been contradicted byitself to give them hope.


"it's all about belief in self" exactly....

Well personally i find religion a foe just because of all the hatred it brings between people of different religions....
but then again if people are devoted to their religion and really feel like it gets them through life then it can also be a friend.
However i hate it how some religious people expect their kids to follow in their footpaths when really we should all have our own choice? in cases like this it is a foe because it brings so many fueds, arguements within families if people follow their own hearts/paths..
i suppose its on of those topics that will never disappear...then again it doesnt need to..as the world develops i think religions should develop to accomodate and maybe adjust some of their very strict ways of living becuase in this modern world they can sometimes bring a lot of trouble...
hmm religion...its so confusing!

yeah, generally i am very anti-religion, i think it breeds so much pain,death,restriction,judgmental-ness (if thats a word) hypocracy and confusion... all of which are negative!
forget WW1/2(dont get me started on them!!) but think of ALL the wars that are basically down to religion... and the un-necessary deaths and dont forget all of the money going into armed forces and rebuilding the mess we make!!
i understand that some people find comfort in religion and if it genuinly helps them then fine,just dont preach your values onto me or anyone-if ppl want to believe they will!...
i am also one for the whole belive in yourself and you cant go far wrong...the only religion i can tolerate is budhism because this is all about you are your own god, and karma, and you reap what you sew etc and im ALL for that.

and yeah, how the fuck can you explain a random person in history making the whole world, the animals and ppl in it?.... and disregard evolution! bollocks !! :D
after all something as big as christainity only started out as a cult... so in effect we could start our own religion...whos for it? :P

go keri!
when you put things in that perspective fuck religion its shit!!

i mean the whole god created the world shit i know its not true anyways but for people who do believe it why if god is so good and like the leader of the planet does he let so much shit happen in the world!! its really sad how some people are involved in so many depressing things, have so much shit happen to them but they still believe in god and still think he will pull them through etc when really it just has to be themselves.....religion can provide a certain comfort for some people yeah but it cant help anyone live....it cant change any bad things we do to the world and it cant control anything

going on keris war point...i wont go to mcu into it because i will never stop but basically if you look back at every single war that has happened in the past i bet every single one is either based on or involves some sort of religion conflict...even if they dont start because of religion it soon becomes an issue!!

so many people need to realise what religion is doing to our world....i dont like to discriminate people who are religous i just dont think they realise.....we need to stop living on traditions and start acting on the state of the world and putting it right including ridding all the bad things religion brings....

lol thanks keri you helped me release some of the religion anger i had stored in me!
