My own opinion is that there is no religion. Only different groups of people who want to make money from made up stories.

Again, that's my own opinion.








Pessimism isn't a bad lifestyle. If life screws you over, it's just another day. If life gives you a break, it tastes that much sweeter.

Singularis likes this. A lot.
Even though I'm not a follower of Jesus, I deeply respect people who have faith without the need of religion.

Religion is a collection of cultural systems, belief systems, and worldviews that establishes symbols that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values.
Pretty sure it does exist...
Whether one is right or not is an entirely different matter, and one we will (most probably) never have the answer to.

There is a lot of misunderstanding over what the video is stating.

It is from a Christian perspective, and thus "Religion" takes on a different meaning from a more secular meaning.

This video mirrors quite a bit of my own thoughts on religion. I always believed that since religion is a man-made thing it was flawed and thus could be corrupted. Whose to say the Bible we read today hasn't been tampered with over the years by high seated church officials wanting us to behave how they want us to? I mean, the heads of these religions are mere mortals same as us yet they claim to have a higher understanding of what God wants from us and somehow this "higher understanding" always results in them sitting pretty. And church seems to have become so superficial nowadays with people pretending to be all holy and whatnot on a Sunday yet being complete jerks every other day of the week.

The video is interesting and he catches your attention. But, he never defines what religion is, he never shows us where Jesus says He doesn't like religion, and religion itself is not inherently bad.

For a good article that refutes this video, read: http://theamericanjesus.net/?p=4970. I find it to be an accurate assessment, particularly points 2 & 4.








If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please feel free to send me a PM or a VM!
I'll be back in a week.
