I am agnostic. There are so many unknown truths in the world, and in my opinion God is one of them. I honestly believe that people use religion for bad more often than good. Think I’m lying? Check history. Check the present. Read or watch the news!
I’ll focus on Christianity for a minute since that is the religion I am most familiar with. Everyone interprets the Bible differently, but because it is thought to be the word of God people feel as if they should be judgmental and hate others because of what they think the Bible says to them or what they have been taught to believe the Bible means. My belief is that the Bible is not the word of God, it is the word of man, and because man is not to be fully trusted with anyones word I believe the Bible is laced with lies. It’s a work of fiction, folks! There are of course many relevant lessons and teachings within the Bible, but I do not think one has to be religious to understand or live by these very basic and common rules, such as The Ten Commandments.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against religious people. I allow my daughter to attend church with her grandmother (my mother) whenever she wants. I embrace everyone, but those who are for religion seem to have a huge problem with a “heathen” such as myself that does not perscribe to any religious teachings.
I could go on and on about this, but I’ll let this priest and George Carlin take it from here:
