If we look pass all the BS that happen thousands of years over what religion or whos god is the truest then I think we can make a difference
I also think that religion in some way is controlling and it can be for enlightening all and keeping us away from doing bad things

We know when to do the right thng at the right time . we know that if you kill someone you will go to jail and may spend the rest of your life there... other way to look at it is if you someone your also killing yourself.
all of religions books have some good in them bible 10 commands is a good guideline, buddahist have a good guideline as well ....like mediation
I'm not saying throw it all away when I said we dont need it anymore . because I see that every religions has most answers, but alot of it has been corrupted and separated alot of people

I only gets annoyed when people try to convince me (which is kind of hopeless) that God/Louis/Alfons/[name it what you want] exist.
Don't get me wrong, I respect the choices people make, I just ask they respect mine.
I'm raised semi-catholic to put it that way. Heck, the father in-law of my brother is a deacon (not sure if correct English term) => Don't let me start about that a*******
So maybe in a month or two I will once again enter a church (first time in about 6-8 years), for the baptism (again not sure about English term) of the child of my brother.
And even that will only happen if my brother asks me to be there, if not I probably won't be there.
Well religion, do with it what you want. Just don't bother other people with it.

I think another big source of the problem lies with the eagerness of some people to focus on the sins of others, especially certain sins, while ignoring the proverbial plank in their own eye.
So after all that, why do I believe? All I can say, without writing a dissertation, is that I was in a very dark place a few years ago, and it wasn't until I accepted Christ I found my way back. I cannot but credit Him with saving my life, and it would be the very height of ingratitude to try and deny it now.
How terribly tragic it is, that so many identify God with hatred. Mankind bears the responsibility for that.
My preachy two cents lol.

"Do good with no looking who."
The life is weird, with highs and lows, but if you know how to take whatever life gives you, you will be happy.

Therefore, I don't care much for the how of it, but I care deeply about the why. Spiritual seeking of a higher way to be, or people seeking ways to be better, not just for themselves, but for everyone is a great thing, and most religions propagate that, most of the time. I think it does not matter which path we take, as long as we walk that path with compassion, gratitude, truth, and as much joy as we can muster.
I too have been led from the brink, on more than one occasion, by that which we can not see. Noone will ever convince me that we are nothing more than a random assortment of celestial dust bunnies.

I like this I like this alot thats a cool way to think of it thanx for your imput
I believe that all "religions" are an attempt to connect with that which we can't see. Our creation is a gift, no matter how you define it's conception. Therefore, I don't care much for the how of it, but I care deeply about the why.

Know God No Peace, No God Know Peace.
I'm aware that this is very close minded, because obviously people will still fight. Though if you notice most countries fight because we all believe in different things. People just need to learn to stop trying to force feed everything down each others throats and fight for things that need to be fought for. Like advancement in medical science. I would love to see cures for disease instead of just "temporary" tricks.

no flames here I honestly think we can discuss things close to our heart and do it with compassion and for thought for the others involved and if you read the other posts you can see that this is true we have a great community here.
This is just my thing, so don't flame its my opinion.
Know God No Peace, No God Know Peace.

I have walked though the fields of the Battle of the Bulge, and beaches of Iwo Jima, the hair stands up on the back of your neck
but I still think Aliens had allot to do with what religion is based upon.
Personally I blame the internet for flooding my brain with some much information on science and the Vatican for locking away religious history , which is knowledge.
That and I still think if you blow on the Popes ring it will whistle.

that you can easily find by yourself too by reading books or think logical ones in a while. Hundreds of years
ago, people didn't have access to this much information to come to conclusion we can do now. That is why
the bible is pretty useless now. You can read it as a summary and end up with thinking: hmmm, I actually
already new all, just never put these ideas in words.
No, religion can stay for people that find support in it. But I am not one of them. Teaching religion at school
should be stopped. Religion should be something you discover on your own. Lucky my parents weren't
religious and my grandparents neither and I was still really young when I decided nothing like a god could
exist in this world.
Religion and science are 2 different things to me, they can't be compared and they can't be used together.
This is sadly not true at this moment. Embryology research is often stopped by the church while it could
save literally millions and millions of lives. This has forced universities doing this kind of research to rethink
their participation in church. For example in Belgium the Katholic University of Louvain (KUL) was thinking to
rename itself to University of Louvain because the pope criticise their embryology research.
For me religion did more bad than good (think about the millions that got slaughtered in the name of some
kind of religion). But you can't just banish it out of our society although I hope it slowly bleeds dry thou.
ps.: Got to say one thing and sorry for it but it absolutely disgusts me in the deepest of my soul to how America
is increasingly teaching creationism in their schools

i choose to be an atheist..like other ppl have the right to choose be a christian or jewish..
i have nothing against them...if they let me have the liberty to choose what i want too..
Dont impose...let the ppl be free to choose..
i belive in my friends ,family and all the ppl that wish me good..
and all the things that i see whit my own eyes
i dont like just the hipocrisy of the pope when he ask to kill the hunger in Africa..he having shoes of 10000 euros and drinking in cups of Gold..
i think the church have money to kill the hunger in many countrys whitout becaming poor..but its always better to ask the poor to help..
And yeah the creationism or evolutionism...we all know where we came from...
no need to say more..Cience already prove all..
no one came here clap the fingers and puff create the Man..
sorry but its what i think

No amount of money or food will fix the problems in Haiti (for example).
