i know that this is a network for very hostile and predominantly ignorant people, so i thought it would be interesting to see how the people in this area perceive religion. i, personally anti theist, would love to hear an argument justifying a fundamentally religious world, rather than one of reason and science. i hear the argument, "there is no beauty in the world without religion," or at least the thought of at least something possibly being out there. first of all, i see beauty in the world every day, and it doesn't take a scripture to acknowledge it. without the barriers of religion comes the advantage of free thinking, but more importantly, pursuing the ultimate history, future and purpose for this planet.

what kind of argument is that? that does not justify anything. back to the point i'm trying to make, people really need to open up and understand that there is much more to this world than "faith." they're called facts. give me some facts and i'll take you much more seriously.

Religious extremists are the craziest people I've ever met. Google Ricky Gervais, however, if you were anti-theist you probably(should)know who he is. Love him. Guy knows his stuff.

Organized religion is a business, for a lack of better wording. They have twisted the word, used it for selfish purposes, and inflicted non-biblical rules on others because they can.

I look at the faith side of it. In our era, there are many religions who use the bible. I say read it. We were born with free will, and not even a creator would take that away. Worshipers would be called slaves instead. I do not believe any creator of life would restrict choice and control others. Mankind seems to have taken that role on.

I have faith that there was creation by means that science cannot explain. I feel every religion on earth is correct in that sense. I think faith is in your heart and how you treat other living creatures. I like the bible as a moral guide and a record of history of a people.

I think if more people reflected on a creator instead of a church, we would have more peace. The churches of our world bring division instead of enlightenment. I like the rare occasion that I run across someone who is open minded and will share their view on faith. Everything bills down to perspective and sharing your life experiences with others.
