RELIGIONS: THE CURSE OF HUMANITY

Postby miltiades » Thu Nov 20, 2014 9:36 pm

Thousands of years ago, times when man lived in caves, the average life span was about 30 years, antibiotics had yet to be discovered, diseases such as leprosy, lientery, dysentery were widespread, common colds too.

Man knew little about the world around him, communication virtually non existent, knowledge and learning handed down from generation to generation, mythology was rampant.

These were the people who created God, mostly totally illiterate, pre historic mentality that survives and thrives to this day.

Modern progress made by man in all fields of life have done little or nothing in dispelling these dark age born nonsense about a creator.

You look around today and wonder as to why modern man still holds on to these preposterous puerile ideologies.

Religions have brought nothing but divisions, cruelty, hatred and of late bloody suicide savages, men beheading other men, severing their heads whilst chanting God is Great.

I have seen the light, first just a glimmer way back in 1953, but this glimmer became brighter and until inextinguishable, as it now is.

May your false gods be with you all, mine are REAL, human like me, men dedicated to science, finding cures, looking after the less fortunate, devoting their lives to providing comfort to those in need.

Given that you’ve got one foot in the grave, you’ll find out soon so be patient and quit putting us to sleep with primary school drivel. :lol:

When it comes to heavenly matters, most people belong in one of the following groups…

1. Uneducated = Innocent, naïve, superstitious, and God fearing.

2. Educated = Overconfident, materialistic, self loving, and God hating.

3. Highly educated = Very intelligent, perplexed, God respecting, and humbled.

And that explains atheists…

The above is positive proof that you know nothing of man-kinds needs/origins/hopes and dreams.
I think you need some psychiatric help and your many past offerings support such thought.
Your recent Hate and Love ramblings are very suspect, I am researching your past history with great interest.
I do not think that you have ever been involved in a debate since you lack the basic skills to be so involved.
Somebody should tell you these things, I fear you are too far gone to be helped.
A good starting point might be to face facts and accept that you are far nearer to knowing nothing than most.

Its because man needs to believe in something greater than himself.

Hope is a vital emotion and a powerful coping resource. Man has not changed but the environment around him has. Man is an outdated biological being living in a 'modern' world.

Unless the biological make-up of man changes (which it never will for as long as the human species exists) man will always have faith and find a positive way to cope with the difficulties and challenges of life and believe in something greater than himself, God.

The foolish old geezer assumes that mortal man with his pathetic life longevity of just 70-80 years (a mere fraction of a Planck unit by the universe’s clock) is the most supreme entity in the cosmos and there is nothing above him! :lol:

Or Man’s acknowledgement that his mortality is negligible in the face of the infinite universe and the immortal.

I agree although it looks like religion will be around for another few centuries at least so we will just have to learn to live with it.

Geez you're such a Schnauzer!

The OP raises so good and interesting points and never at any stage dismissed anyone's need for such belief systems no matter how deluded they may seem.

You of course are free to debate those points rather than attack the poster personally. May I ask what it is exactly that has sparked your interest with the poster? I don't believe you have a need to research him but nonetheless it should be the material he posts that interests you and not the person!

Here is a challenge to all those dreamers, do your own research into just one area.

Religion's contribution to human advancement, be it technological, medical, social, or peace on earth. Religious wars , conflicts, hatred have existed for thousands of years, exacerbated by false beliefs in a non existent creator.

Convince those of us who have seen the light that religion contributes to the well being of the human race.

Religious people, such as the psychopath, are delusional, cruel, spiteful and full of hate for their fellow humans.

Name just one tangible benefit, I don't mean hope, but a tangible benefit the human race has attained from religion.

The answer is NONE. Prove me wrong.
