I have no problem with people passing on their experience of life to others and trying to help them avoid mistakes they made. My beef is with the pedestal Theologians, Priest, Pastors etc. are placed on as if they are somehow more qualified to give advice on subjects they often have no clue about.

Teaching people the world was created a few thousand years ago is a lie, teaching them evolution did not happen is a lie. These are well proven any other explanation is a lie, its as simple as that.

And why does there have to be a "reason" for the universe? Just because we don't understand the first few moments of the universe it doesn't then follow that it was invoked by some "higher" power.

So what, that doesn't mean it was God. Its their interpretation, it sounds more likely that it was the group of people who gave them the support to change their life. That they happen to have been a religious group who ended up making them believe "God" helped them proves nothing.

Good family support and a good network of friends does the same thing, religion is unnecessary.

Intelligent design is just creationism 2.0 its flawed and wrong. The true beauty of the universe is trying to understand how it came into being. How the stars formed and how they in turn produce the elements necessary for life to occur and how that life evolved into the myriad of life we see all around us. Knowing that everything I'm made from was forged in a star and that when I die everything I am made from will be returned to the universe it came from to make something else, now that is beautiful.

Stop worrying about what happens when you die and start living your life and discovering the real world.


There is no sin except stupidity.
