    I prefer a type of fantasy that doesn't try to impose its beliefs on you

    I see religion as a waste of time to grab attention

    "Religion" is not of importance. But faith, that this life is a gift bestowed and more wonders is in store-is what I hold important.

    It is important in the sense that I acknowledge their existence. But I know that they love me as I am, and I am not big on performing rituals. I honor them in my own way.

    Unfortunately, organized religion is effecting all of our lives as those who push for laws based on their religious teachings effect us all.

    Thing is that everyone supports or opposes laws based on their own morality. Its no different if that morality is based on Christianity, or Judaism or Mormonism or secular humanism. At the end of the day any push for laws affects us all, no use in singling out religion.

    I think only some laws have a moral basis.

    Is it immoral to speed?
  • Superman morris44 2012/07/17 20:50:13

    Speeding could be a chicken and the egg situation. I would say some would consider it immoral to speed because we have a law establishing a speed limit. Though there may be a set of folk that think we shouldn't have an establishment of speed limits at all. And still others would probably say certain limits are morally rational for the safety of drivers and pedestrians.

    Subtracting those less controversial issues, though, its still our morality that defines issues like gay marriage or abortion or say something specific like the San Francisco ban on Foie Gras. A certain segment of society obviously thinks its immoral to create and sell the delicacy. And other regions contain people that enjoy the food and restaurants that want to sell it and have no moral qualms about it. But the collective morality of San Francisco affected the lives of the people that consume, sell and manufacture a certain product.

    Thus my argument that what our morality is based on is irrelevent still stands. If you want to quibble over the fact that some laws aren't controversial and enjoy broader public support thats fine. It really doesn't address my main point.

    It's at least somewhat important to me that the majority of the people around me base their behavior on one or another awful superstition. It's a little important to me that more people decide to become good, honest people by questioning and ultimately giving up religion.

    Religion is one of the biggest frauds ever conceived by a human to put other humans in their control . The poor and ignorant are the ones most gullible to the fundamentalist preachers in their $ 500.00 suits and gold gilded furniture that beg for more money daily on their TV shows. These are businesses that sell Jesus, etc and should be taxed accordingly !

    Extremely important. I would be nothing, if it were not for the unconditonal love, support, kindness, compassion and grece of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Everything in my life, all of my blessings, my strength, my family and all that I am and have is bcause HE has given it to me freely.

    If God comes first, it seems you couldn't vote for anyone who isn't God.

    Is that the logic you are going with here?

    You said, "God comes first, thats (sic) why I would never vote for Obama!"

    If you want someone to understand what you mean, put words in your statements that address what you want to address.

    Don't make an inference that relies on others to decipher.

    You meant to say something about how Obama is godless or the devil or some other silly thing, but you didn't. You just leave out this, most important part.

    Leaving others to infer what you meant.

    I am a proud atheist. Religion does nothing to improve the world. It just serves as a starting point for "us vs. them" thinking - a way to feel superior to other people who believe or behave differently than you do. I find it amazing how so many millions of people not only believe in their Invisible Friend, but actually believe that this I.F. CARES about who will win the World Series, or whether Johnny will pass his math test, or whether Uncle Fester will ever wake up from his coma. The arrogance of humans, to think that their I.F. is micro-managing everything! If it weren't so sad and pointless and a waste of human energy, it would be funny.

    If humans were indeed created by an Invisible Friend, then that I.F. did a horrible job, as evidenced by the continual warring/violence of various countries/tribes/religions; the destruction of our planet's health; the thinking that only-HUMANS-count-and-to-hell... and the sheer love of ignorance and non-thought that religious beliefs encourage.

    We did the horrible job, God gave us free will and some of us (Obama supporters) chose to try to destroy this planet. Most of us (Christians) are trying to help the planet!

    WTF? Kindly show me verifiable FACTS (not blog stuff) to make your cause against Obama as to his "destroying the environment." It tends to be Democrats who fight tooth and nail to protect all of us from pollution and other planet-destroying factors.

    The proof is in every vote by the teabagger house republicans. I know, I have one in my district by the name of Vicky Hartzler. One of the most ignorant females to ever inhabit this planet. Let's everyone else do the thinking for her as long as it's along corporate lines . Clean air and clean water are not on her agenda and she's suppose to be a farmer to boot .
  • arkiii Leeaqua 2012/07/18 21:23:38

    hmmm. could it be that you are a Liberal Democrat and she is a conservative Republican and so you automatically oppose anything she favors? I read her voting record and did not find anything to support that she is against clean air or clean water???
  • Leeaqua arkiii 2012/07/19 14:36:36

    By voting in favor of Big Ag , she does do just that .

    The dumbest thing in the entire world is people who blame "Satan" for evil, as if human beings didn't have free will. What a load of crap! Religions encourage that kind of scapegoating because it stems from the opposite -- that their I.F. is responsible for the good things that happen. What a wonderful world this could be if people stopped following their religion and simply respected other people, animals, and environments!

    Amazing. I have my imaginary friends, but some points you make are interesting. Especially "humans have free will, yet Satan is the root for evil."
