Do you think this statement is having it "forwards"?
Does religion make everything better? Does it make anything better?
Who else is making religion, besides man?
If man makes religion worse (worse than what?), why should we promote it?
I am thrilled and delighted that religion torments you, honey. Tis a pleasure to observe how it drives you batty. You deserve it. So, yes indeed, religion is awesome, baby

As a cult, Christianity has a higher degree of social acceptance than most. That's not a great excuse. It doesn't give me any reason to differentiate in most situations.
O babe, we are a cult. We eat flesh and drink blood, booby.

No, years of education and experience makes the experts the experts within accredited academia, and they are easily available to access on the internet now.
You should utilize them.
I do, however, have a good amount of knowledge on this and many other subjects.
Have you ever heard of N.T. Wright? Easily the worlds best living scholar on the New Testament. If you're impressed by expertise, look him up.

It's not religion that causes the problems, it's the ideological framework within fundamentalist extremism that causes the problems. It's well known that Fundamentalist Islamic groups believe in the use of violence as a first and only way to obtain their ideological goals. Israel, surrounded by hostile nations and their government supported terrorists has become hyper vigilant to the extent that they over-react to any perceived threat whether real or imagined.(Kinda like some in here).
And I wasn't referring to the current state of affairs, but to the ancient Israelis during the time of Moses.
to argue that "our morals are ok" because their morals are worse, is to condemn your morals

proving that

christianity is a failed moral system, and you are merely an apologist for that ugly failure.

Most of the "believers" of christianity are indoctrinated victims, many remain in the cult because they lack the intellect and education to understand the trap.

Those who have intellect, usually leave the cult, or become pariahs, taking wealth and position in exchange for apologetic. These people are the skum of the earth.

Faulty logic. What God would submit to His created beings? What purpose would it serve for a God (any God) to produce a gnat when they're so plentiful?
Assuming that a deity doesn't exist simply on the basis that the deity is requested to produce something and doesn't do it doesn't make sense.
of course he can't

he does not exist.

but

the bible, and christian followers, often claim, supernatural intervention.

We know they are lying, but still, their claims negate the existence of the god.

If you're Catholic you do eat flesh and drink blood....at least the church dogma says so.

It's called transubstantiation. You are literally eating Jesus.

Eeeewww gross.

Now the booby is another thing altogether.:-)

Yeah, and the signs or hallmarks that accompany a cult apply directly to Christianity.

Quoting:

*Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.

*No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.

*No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement.

*Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.

*There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil.

*Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances.

*There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader.

*Followers feel they can never be "good enough".

*The group/leader is always right.

*The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing "truth" or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.

As you pointed out, just because it has became socially acceptable, or is not perceived as a cult due to societal involvement, does not remove the cultish implications.

Religion is how man relates to the Creator. It is man who also poisons that very bridge that is religion through our fallen corrupt nature. It's a spiritual thing.
And yet it's always said that interaction with your deity is a "personal" relationship.

I'd like to ask a question; Where would religions be without religious texts, that outline the "religion"?
