this thread and It was probably a mistake to post my beliefs,
but I was only trying to help the guy accept who he really is.
but if religion is the only thing that restricts us from doing
bad things.. then I am very sad with humanity...
I do good things not to please a God, but I do it cause
I am a human being, human beings are like that
we want to live in each other's happiness not by
each other's misery.
and to answer your question:
the world would be a better place without religion.
no suicide bombings, no honor killings, no holy wars
no priests that molest children, and the twin towers
would probably still be here. and we would be exploring the galaxy and unweaving the mysteries of the universe, contacting advanced civilizations... but no, we are here stuck in this pale blue dot in a civilization poisoned by religion...
heck I even wish there is a God =( that doesnt mean I believe in one.
oh and yeah.. I'm a former religious fanatic (sacristan pa)
and have read the bible multiple times... it was actually
the bible that made me want to stop believing in a God.
try reading the whole thing, thats the fastest way to
get you into being an atheist
ahhhh ive said too much already. i'll try to not reply
to your next post, just to avoid debates
