People who leave false religion because they see the fake hypocrisy are fulfilling Bible prophecy for these last days, and they are obeying God's will for his people. Only People who want to belong to Jehovah God, will learn and become his heavenly Kingdom subjects and survive to live in God's new world of righteousness soon to be here.
Revelation 18:4

You are much better off without any religion, than to be a hypocrite before Jehovah God and his reigning King Jesus who is going to have all false religions destroyed at the great tribulation, soon to be here.
Matthew 24:11-21

We cannot have God's new world of no more war, crime, sickness or tears and all the animals tame and content, unless this world ruled by Satan the Devil is gone forever, now is the time to study your Bible with Jehovah's witnesses so you can be educated in God's will for us today or you can pass away with this world at Armageddon, soon to be here.

Let me just clue you in here: it is people like you that are driving people away from religion in droves. Thank you for creating so many new atheists.

What is exciting today is that we are finding true spirituality in the universe around us simply by exploring it in depth scientifically!

What is, is. To reject what is because it conflicts with a specific religion is insane! But yet we have over 32000 sects of Christianity alone that have chosen primitive myths over reality to govern their lives and are afraid to think things through lest they be destroyed or tortured for eternity by a wrathful and vengeful god for questioning his earthly representatives!

We are rapidly exposing the primitive fear and hate based religions built on primitive myths, and the damage they do to society, more and more, as we begin to learn about the true nature of reality.

Science has confirmed the existence of a greater reality that is actually responsible for the projection of what we normally think of as reality with such experiments as the confirmation of Bell's theorem on entangled particles that demonstrates the reality of something outside of this universe.

Science does not know much about this greater reality but logically it is an incredibly vast form of consciousness in order for it to be able to synchronize the whole universe.

Plus we have the emerging understanding of the holographic nature of what is and the research currently being done that if validated will confirm what the historical Jesus and other mystics have been saying for centuries!

The days of primitive religions that teach of god(s) of hate and violence battling each other in a fragmented universe are numbered.

The children growing up today will be able to clearly recognize the absurdity of religions that deny reality and teach of hate and judgment such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses and their barbaric bloodbath theology that has damaged so many lives with it's apocalyptic nonsense!

And then there are the other forms of Patriarchal Hierarchical Christianity that teach of hellfire that also contribute to the insanity that is endangering the earth!

All of these religions share one thing in common. They depend on their own personal interpretations or the interpretations of their masters, of a collection of books (the bible ) that contradict each other, considering this collection of books the inherent word of their god(s) and picking and choosing passages that can be loosely interpreted to support their respective religions from the books and then rejecting the reality that contradicts the books!

We all should get informed as to what is going on and help to wake humanity up to the reality that religion refuses to accept!

The only source of "god" is the bible. The bible was written by common goatherders,(after carried by word of mouth for hundreds of years) originally intended as entertainment (they did not have much did they?). Again, you and I could have written the same kind of stuff. Why in the universe does that "book" make people believe that the bible portends a "god". It is a very sad case for humanity. Witness the massacres in Kenya. Such is the goal of religion. Kill as many "non-believers" (free thinkers) as is possible.

Religion and witchcraft are as irrelevant to the modern world as any other superstitions.

Humans have only existed for a few million years and "modern" society for a very few hundred. We are at the start of a journey of discovery. Let's not be distracted,(much less divided), by religions, holy-lands or tribalism.

It may take awhile before all of us partake of the journey. We still have to contend with new religions based on magical thinkng springing up everywhere:

http://www.damninteresting.com/john-frum-and-...

and believe it or not :) we have:

"Modern hypotheses supporting a flat Earth originated with English inventor Samuel Rowbotham (1816–1884). Based on his incorrect interpretation of experiments on the Bedford Level, Rowbotham published a 16-page pamphlet, called "Zetetic Astronomy", which he later expanded into a 430-page book, Earth Not a Globe, expounding his views. According to Rowbotham's system, the earth is a flat disc centred at the North Pole and bounded along its southern edge by a wall of ice (Antarctica), with the sun and moon 3,000 miles (4,800 km) and the "cosmos" 3,100 miles (5,000 km) above earth.[5] He also published a leaflet entitled "The inconsistency of Modern Astronomy and its Opposition to the Scriptures!!" which argued that the "Bible, alongside our senses, supported the idea that the earth was flat and immovable and this essential truth should not be set aside for a system based solely on human conjecture"

from:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_Earth_Socie...

And the flat earth society may be extreme in their clinging to scripture and rejecting reality. But they do have their own website:

http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/inde...

Now this last one is a very good example of the folly of bible inerrancy to the extreme :)

26 bishops of the Church of England sit in the House of Lords.

President Obama is a practicing Christian.

Peter says that all slaves should “be subject to [their] masters with all fear,” to the bad and cruel as well as the “good and gentle.” This is merely an echo of the same slavery commands in the Old Testament. 1 Peter 2:18
