    All religions mislead people.
    A)The bible was written to control the masses
    B)any religion is just an interpretation of the pastors view of the bible.
    C)there is no such thing as world wide unity.People of different thoughts and ideas will always be divided.


    I am not saying there is no God all I am saying is organized religions are corrupt.
    They either want you to think their way, or pay them money.

    I don't think the answer you are looking for exists. I feel each religion bases it's doctrines on their own consciousness and defines them to fit their view of how they feel the truth should be told. I also feel that religion need not be based on the bible

    You DO know there are MANY world religions that DON'T use the bible.........why do you think the truth can only be found in a Bible believing religion???(Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Sikkh etc...)

    The Bible is so full of contradictions and ambiguities that it would be logically impossible to follow it to the letter.

    It seems to me that what religion is in fact all about is misleading people and playing on their fears.

    I do hold out some hope for world-wide harmony one day, if not unity. Such harmony will prevail, in my opinion, only when religious dogma, and the delusions and hatred that emanate from it, all fall by the wayside, and we all embrace reason, empathy, and love of the here and now.

    DOES'NT EXIST.

    The last true faiths were based on the veneration of the MATRIARCHAL and not the PATRIARCHAL.

    There isn't a religion that tells the truth, because the persons who are telling us stuff out of the bible for example, always add their opinion, look at the pope, he does it all the time...
    If you wanna know wich religion is true, read the books like the bible and koran and see what is more relevant for you.

    Yes, but religion is about the interpretation of those books, and the people who tells us how to behave have another iterpretation...

    The books are an interpretation to begin with.

    So listening to people's interpretation of the books OR following them to the letter doesn't matter. Because both are subjective interpretations and most importantly impossible to prove.
