What are your views on religion?

I grew up with 2 muslim friends and from that never really had any hate for a religious group. Just the extremist bastards who ruin it for everyone.

I think religion itself is kind of stupid though. But if you wanna devote your life to something, hey, that's nothing to do with me.
>> No. 15274 [Edit]
I think religion is fascinating. I love studying myths and religious history. While I myself am not religious I do not hate it. Religion's caused some problems for people over the years, but in general, I believe that it's done a lot of good for many people. Maybe someday I'll find a religion that's right for me.
>> No. 15275 [Edit]
To each their own, just don't go shoving it in people's faces. My family's Baptist, but I myself don't bother with any sort of religion, much to their dismay.

I enjoy studying theology and religions role in human society, but I don't believe in any of it.

My problem with it mostly lies with the fact it is used to justify anything in life, even the horrible acts.
>> No. 15283 [Edit]
I don't really care for it. I know that some people like it and some people may need it, though.

Jesus's face scares me in that picture.

It fascinates me, specially mythology.
My interest leans to western paganism and eastern religions, mostly.

As something to believe, it can be either positive or negative, it depends on you.

Naruto? And another survey?
Is it the same guy making all these threads?

I dislike organised religion when it has concepts of good VERSUS evil. Which is most organised religion. 

Also there are seldom any good role models in religion. Yahweh was the hands down king of the assholes. Everyone in the old testament was pretty much a piece of shit at one time in their lives at least. Look at the first humans, for the first few generations. Lying and shit abound. Angels are pieces of shit. Lucifer seems to be less of an ass than most of the residents of that fucking frat house the Abrahamic faiths call Heaven, which is hilarious. Basically the only decent person in the bible was Jesus. All the disciples were real shitty though. 

Muhammad? Holy shit, how can anyone even think of following someone like that? Killin' 800 jews for not converting to his six week old religion, then sexually enslaving their wives and children? And taking as (one of many) a wife a three-year-old girl, then sticking your dick through her legs, and saying you should be the prophet the world looks to for guidance? Holy shit. Just...

Buddha was an asshole. Nichiren was a gigantic asshole. Tsukiyoshi? Asshole. Hachiman? Well, not really, but.... Inari can be pretty immature. Suzano-o was an asshole. At least we have good in Amaterasu... who told the world to fuck off as she selfishly stole the light from the world because her rice fields got wet. Ehhh....

Hey now, what'd the disciples and Buddha do?

>Basically the only decent person in the bible was Jesus.
Apparently he was an asshole also:
>After that again he went through the village, and a child ran and dashed against his shoulder. And Jesus was provoked and said unto him: Thou shalt not finish thy course (lit. go all thy way). And immediately he fell down and died. But certain when they saw what was done said: Whence was this young child born, for that every word of his is an accomplished work? And the parents of him that was dead came unto Joseph, and blamed him, saying: Thou that hast such a child canst not dwell with us in the village: or do thou teach him to bless and not to curse: for he slayeth our children.

The disciples fucked with the text of the bible so much that, even if the shit that happened in the old testament and in Jesus' life actually did have an ounce of truth in it, it was completely destroyed. Also bitching and conspiracy theories to this day are based on their decisions.

Buddha, I forget the specifics, but I remember getting a terrible impression from him from something he did.

Haha oh Haruhi fuckin' Jesus.

Everyone has right to seek their happiness in their chosen way. If it religion and it makes person happy, I have nothing to say about it. Only thing what makes me hate people is how they force their own ideals as only right ideals. That's why I usually hate religious people and atheists who do that all the time.

Religious ethics and morals are interesting to study.
>> No. 15325 [Edit]
I hate them. They are cancerous. They make people blindly follow some stupid principles which were created for the purpose of controlling the masses thousands of years ago. 'Haruhi said that, I believe it, that settles it.' You'd think people would be capable of thinking for themselves in the 21st cnetury.

We mostly got over [self ceonsored because /tc/ would go batshit] and [self ceonsored because /tc/ would go batshit] so this is the last big issue that remains mostly untouched. And it will take some time before it'll change.

I also belive this kind of topic is highly disencouraged around here because they create shitstorms on regular basis. We have the guidelines for a good reason.


Any reason for a conflict is a good enough reason. People tend to think that buddhism is such a peaceful religion and that buddhists are harmless but look at Sri Lanka and the like.

Of course, they are mostly just retards who make people who actually properly follow the princiles look bad but still, if they didn't believe in that crap then maybe (just maybe mind you) there wouldn't be a problem in the first place.


I wish Christians would actually read the Bible every once in a while. That shit is really sick. They are intent on banning all sorts of literature due to themes which are outside of their comfort zones but all of them are present in the Bible in a much, much more explicit form.

Personally I blame the laypeople for messing up every religion. They manage to get in and water everything down to the point that the religion barely resembles what it was supposed to be.

To be fair, that wasn't from the bible proper. And also, apparently, Joseph punishes Jesus and then Jesus is like "fine gosh" and undoes all his murderous stuff.

But yeah, Haruhi is a total dick in general. From what little I read, he seemed childish. "I AM A JEALOUS Haruhi. MY WAY OR EVERYONE GETS MURDERED. WAAAAAAAAH."
>> No. 15330 [Edit]
The Haruhi of the old testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction.
Jealous and proud of it, a petty unjust unforgiving control freak, a vindictive blood thirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic homophobic racist infanticidal genocidal filicidal pestilential megalomaniacal sadomasochistic capriciously malevolent bully.

I don't know what to believe, and why believe this or that, instead of something else. I'd appreciate, if you gave me some hint in this regard.

Believe in what sits best with you.

I like to think of religion (or most religions) as early attempts at psychology and science, and they should be preserved, so long as they do not interfere with the evolution of Mankind and are not being forced upon people.
It is just really disgusting and even disturbing when people literally believe what their religion tells them (which has often been diluted through priests, etc.) and base their whole lives around it.
It is preposterous to assume that millions and millions of people happen to have within them exactly the same opinions about various different subjects. The brainwashing is too obvious and it is scary. I was baptized and going to church and learning the Bible before I understood what any of what I was being told meant, and that is simply wrong. Fortunately my parents didn't care much about religion, so when they moved out of my grandmother's house I stopped going.
Another thing I find strange is people whose countries have a heathen background but were Christianized, and they now seem to be glad and very religious. For instance, the same people who would criticize Christians for having invaded his land and destroyed much of it in the process and generally caused chaos to an otherwise peaceful place simply because they found themselves superior, will at the very same time praise Haruhi and be the most devout person in the world. It just seems hypocritical that people don't understand, especially after learning some history, that they have been conditioned to believe what they believe.

This post became way too long.

This is certainly true, but at a point our major religions became nothing more than tools of power for political/economic control over the world (such as during the Crusades).

It helped our early ancestors out, but it holds no relevance today outside academic study. At least, that's my opinion of it.
