Every religion is equally wrong and right with their beliefs. Im open-minded and accept all religions as they are. Note that religions are important reason for war and terrorism. People are stupid and way too manipulated if they're that critical towards different beliefs and cultures.
Sometimes i find it a bit weird and even scary when someone is really believing in Bible and are totally ignoring other religions. Purpose of religions is to give us strength and hope in our lives. As long as they do so it's same to me what people believe in.
Personally i feel that world religions are little "man-made" and that the real god-like thing is above all of them.
I like religion, so long as I'm not obliged to believe any of it. From a purely scientific, anthropological viewpoint it's quite fascinating. The problems only arise when people insist that their way is right and everyone else's is wrong.
However, our understanding of the nature of the universe has progressed more in the last century than it ever has in the history of mankind. That's irreputable, and also more relevant than who's "smarter" than who.
No, but as time goes on it will only grow further and further out of touch with modern society. It wasn't long ago that being an atheist was a minority, and you were vilified for it. Now, the civilised world grows more secular by the day, and I rejoice in that.
Well, I actually gain a lot from ritual, but find faith problematic enough that I feel morally compelled to abstain from it. Fortunately not all religions require you to believe in a particular doctrine to participate.
It isn't for me either. I just can't get into the notion of something unknowable, and feeling like I know when I don't. But, at the same time, I feel and want to believe that there's something else. Something that transcends our physical consciousness that sort of makes it worth it beyond rotting in a hole in the ground.
So, I'm Agnostic. I don't have the answers, but I intend to find out the same way everyone else has found them in the end.
Disclaimer: I'll speak generally about religions, i will not focus on a single one because all religions are stupid as shit in their own ways.
Religion is not for everyone because religion is misinterpreted all the time. Keyphrase here is "people need to believe in something", and it *is* true, but the line that separated the "belief and faith for something" from "batshit insanity" has long since been trampled over, erased, redrawn, erased again and then re-drawn with a crayon.
The wiser and older you become, and moreso if you study any career, highlights more and more the illogical fallacies in all these ancient documents about an imaginary friend with a specific form that despite being almighty, omnipotent, omnipresent and über powerful, still finds it in it's agenda to do something completely fucking wacky, like letting little Billy fall inside the wood chipper, or letting young Ada be raped to death by some thughs, or commanding the sacrifice of someone to pay a cover for the bigass nightclub in fairyland where everything is happiness and candy and boobs, or demanding that you put your peepee in a girls vagoo because putting it on another man's butt is a no-no for some reason.
Religion is doomed to disappear with the passing of time, there's so much time you can keep a flock of sheep focused on something, and if said imaginary friends who did so many things in the past never ever show up anymore for thousands of years, people will finally stop believing that shit. If there is no manifestation of any of these holy beings anytime soon, then religion is inevitably going to disappear once nobody buys anything said documents say.
