Why I’m no longer a Christian

They say a problem shared is a problem halved. It's not really of course - the problem is still there as it was before but people feel better after telling someone else. They get it off their chest although, again, really nothing has changed. It's the same with people believing in religion. As soon as they get baptized or whatever, it's like telling someone about their problems and they feel this weight being lifted off their shoulders but both these instances are in the mind of the individual. Of course nothing changes really. I mean, the notion that there's a man in the sky looking out for you is absolutely ludicrous in this day and age. All through time people have attributed things they didn't understand to the supernatural. Once science explains it, the supernatural element disappears. Where I'm from, very few people believe the God theory and take no interest in any form of religion, yet they don't have to lock their cars (or even houses) at night. Now living in Tennessee, it worries me the percentage of people who convince themselves there is a guy who can create stars and planets with the snap of his fingers (how ridiculous). How gullible these people must be. Grow up and forget Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Bogeyman and God!  (Aug 4, 2013 | post #466063)
