Gods usually immolate their worshipers.

It's kind of what it's all about.

Quite an interesting conversation here. As such, definitions must be mutually agreed upon. For example, when I see the word religion, I think of its meaning in the bible (which, by the way, is an acronym: basic instruction before leaving earth). However, I am not quite sure how you guys define it. I do think once the basic parameters (words) are defined and agreed upon, we are on the same page.
Religion comes from a root word meaning "to bind, fasten, tie" with the prefix of re- "again" or "back".

Bible comes from "byblion" a papyrus strip or roll.

That's not a good sign.
Does not correlate. It is obvious you have a smooth brain.

You see now that is wrong. In fact the Bible has been found to extremely accurate even as a historical document and Christ and His miracles have found to be documented well outside of the Bible.
Rome took a great interest in him and it has been proven the Gospels would stand up as evidence in a court of law 2,000 years later as a validated affidavit of ancient events.
The crucifixion itself was scoffed at by non-believers who claimed no one was crucified as described until they found the human remains still containing a nailed used exactly as described.
Sodom and Gomorrah were said to not be places until found -- actually the cities they now call Sodom and Gomorrah aren't the actual cities but were built after the destruction of the two -- as the Bible said after its destruction the eastern 3rd of the Dead Sea was poured over them to conceal them from all man kind and YES, THE ARCHEOLOGIST KNOWS THERE ARE TWO CITIES where the scriptures say they should be (in the plains and not on a hill) beneath the sticky salt in the far eastern 1/3 of the Dead Sea... but because of the soupy salt brine they can't excavate and they remain concealed, but artifacts showing the cities are there are brought up via dredging machines during salt extraction ..
Anyhow, I FIND IT ODD... VERY ODD that C14 dating only can be done only on objects that are no older than 5,600 years old...
Science claims because it is the half life of C-14 and it peters out... REALLY?... if only half of the C-14 is gone why can't they test the remaining half? Could it be because the Bible says life only goes back about 6,000 years and there isn't anything organic beyond that? It's a rather odd coincidence ...
Now you will claim the world is billions of years old..
Perhaps, but now here comes your same TEST... Which can't pass the test you assert on religion either... PROVE IT ...
It can't be done ... because it is BASED ONLY ON THE THEORY OF STRATIFICATION ... and a theory is not in itself fact ... and stratification is highly flawed ... lol...
Next PROVE EVOLUTION ... it too is a theory ... with no fossil record to support it ... PERIOD!
Mathematically speaking evolution is not possible for one organism to survive the hundreds of thousands mutations needed to become something else as mutations almost always kills the host.
According to Occam's razor (a method used by everyone from detectives, to doctors attempting to diagnosis an illness to scientist attempting to find a solution) the simplest answer is often the correct answer or truth...
God is the simplest answer.
Awesomely ignorant screed! Congratulations.

To be fair, I would need to study as many religions as I can before picking the one which I feel is best suited to me.
Been there, did that. I came through the process as clergy, but not even Abrahamic, much less Christian.

Much like your dirty hole Aphrodite, who is as real as your intellect.....in other words....NOT!!!!!YOU ARE SO STUPID KAITLIN, YOU ARE JUST SO INCREDIBLY DAFT, YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO UNIMAGINABLY STUPID!!!!!!

I have no idea where you got the notion that anything Biblical would be "mutually agreed upon" in this discussion. Let's try the dictionary.com definition:

a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

If this had been even remotely coherent, your opinion might have been a little more credible.

<quoted text> Thanks
Who exactly gave you orders to talk about a GOD you can't see , nor hear from personally ?
GOD is whatever you make GOD to be !...don't panic , stop talking and do !
Stop telling people about things you wish you had , learn to deal with reality .
Don't waste time wandering , don't talk to strangers ,..stay focus and fix you .
When you actually find GOD , then you're able to present GOD to others .
Meanwhile , stop fooling around .
you're thinking and talking as if God didn't already come and reveal Himself in the Person of Jesus Christ, pour out His Holy Spirit on Pentecost over 2,000 years ago and as if we don't have access to His Words - the Holy Bible!

AGAIN - that's your choice, not mine!:-)

while i can appreciate your efforts towards peace and good will here, i have to disagree about what you're saying.

the reason is, the Bible teaches us that there are to kingdoms going on in the spirit realm simultaneously which affect our dealings with God and each other in this current physical realm; the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. we can get a sense through our words of which kingdom we each belong:-)
