Why do *some* people think we need religion to function as a human?

Apparently since I'm an "Atheist" (Actually LaVeyan Satanist to get terms correct) I am mindless. O.o

    Maybe you should ask all those people in Colorado(Dark Knight shooting) who are gathering publicly to pray.

    Where are all the atheist now? Y'all usually freak out over any sign of God or prayer in public. Keep these people in mind the next time you try to attack someones personal beliefs with insults

    I'm not an Atheist. I'm a LaVeyan Satanist. Get it right. Prayer doesn't work. It only feeds the weak of mind. And no ones attacking your beliefs. The Christians are the ones who do the attacking. They get their panties in a bunch when they find out you don't worship their god.

    Like I said you should share your knowledge granted by Satan to the people praying for the victims of the Dark Knight shooting------tell them prayer doesn't work.
    You are basically following Anton Leey who lied for a living even about his name--He was born Howard Stanton Levey in Chicago, lied about his parents names and lied about them being Gypsy's. Lied about being in the San Fran Ballet, lied about meeting Marilyn Monroe, lied about being a police photographer, in reality taught much as fact which in reality were drunken conversations with a strip bar owner who lived in Paris named Martaan Lamars--I can go on if you wish.
    Girl your beliefs are nothing but a bad after school special TV show.

    Oh come on. And Christianity didn't copy from Pagans? Get a grip, my religion is as valid as yours. And I would tell them prayer doesn't work, I'm not going to lie just to spare emotions.

    People think we need religion to function because, for a long time, that actually was what grounded society. Myth and superstition kept us bound together, and were our explanation for things before we developed science and rational systems of thought.

    i recall a history class where the professor told us that in the wild wild west, it was religon that tamed the towns since there was a lot of gambling and drinking going on...so with that said, it presents a form of structure for the wayward lost sheeps

    but there are so many religons to pick from too ...well...nowdays

    Because they need it, and they need for you to need it too. It's hard if not impossible for them to imagine a world without their specific doctrine or deity.

    the message of religion is love....and love is spiritual fuel......religion may not be the best means of 'connecting' with that......but it is a means

    You really don't get the point. -.- religion is for people who can't think for themselves. I'm basically Atheist, I should know.

    lots of people think you 'believe your way to God',,,,and maybe 'mindlessly' say and do what they believe that should be..............coming to God (in truth) is about removing the 'walls within',,and understanding our only limits are those we place there ourselves

    Mhmm sure, I know about religion. I've read the bible and I was raised Jewish and I know about other religions such as Paganism and Shintoism. There is just no need for it, so I don't see where people get off pressing their beliefs on people and saying they're immoral.

    even if God were no more than 'the feather that let Dumbo fly'...........what would it matter?.........what matters is that you learn how to fly

    We live in an uncertain world with only very few absolutes, such as death being one of them. People want structure and sense in their lives so they make belief systems to give them that in this world and life..

    i think it's because some prefer the absolutes to anything else. their view is the "truth" and anyone who doesn't follow similar paths to them is wrong. the whole "you're either with us or against us" mentality is quite obvious.

    I think the term Satanist should be changed. Anyone who buys into the concept of a Satan and a God, would be foolish to worship Satan. My point though; Satanist don't actually worship Satan they simply put the highest importance upon the self, and they don't fear dabbling in human indulgences.
