I see that theory as a bit radical. Anyways, religion is a topic I have bad experiences discussing, so that's enough for me. The thing that hurts me most is animal rights. Education is key in ensuring animals are not tortured/mistreated in everyday life. I saw a cat killed by a car yesterday and it really bummed me out. Sterilizing street cats and dogs should be taken seriously as a victimless act. The sooner the remaining street cats/dogs die out, the sooner we'll avoid a major component of the issue of animal safety.

Trust me, even if religion didn't exist, the war mongers would still have another reason to wage war.
The removal of any factor will NOT stop people from trying to wage wars, thanks to a superiority complex far too many have, and the thought that they are entitled to having everyone agree with them. The only choice to banish war entirely is making everyone agree on one thing and one thing only, which would be not only stupid, but would also make this world dull as F*CK.

Certainly the life of animals must be respected more, but making sure children rights are followed is much more pressing than animal rights...

Someone who believes in God and is religious could also say a similar thing "research the subject deep and you will NOT be disappointed of what you´ll find"...

Atheists tend to say the same thing all over again...but a fact is that 99,99% of Atheists didnt read any of the holy books but everyone knows religion better than a man who "lives" religion every day.

Everyone has his view on religion...i can understand that...but to mock people who are religious or vice-versa is just wrong.

Every religion teaches beautiful things...and we could say that religion is perfect...but people that practice it arent.

Regarding religion, the thing is that while it has been used negatively (not referring to any specific religion here), that does not in any way disprove the existence of a God. That is something which is not possible to prove or disprove, which is why it is "faith" after all.

Look at each and every religion. They all have a code of conduct, behave this way or else you will be tortured beyond imagination for eternity. This applies from Ancient Religions to Modern ones. It's absolutely stupid.

As Moonrider pointed out, Atheists do read the holy books, and it is after that they reject it.

Religion is invented by people.

I like to view myself as an atheist, but I lean closer towards agnosticism. I have flouted the only one thing which is a no-no in my religion regularly (beef).

This is how it goes, most atheists did read holy books that's why they are atheists in the first place.
I personally read all the *Holy books* and decided not to follow any of it, because as much as it sounds good or comforting or whatever, its got a dark side people wish to ignore.

Secondly heres another topic to talk about: How can you say this religion is good or the true one or beautiful etc.. when most of the people were born and raise to it (Brainwashed) Like for example if you're from Hong Kong you'd be buddhist, or if in the arab world 90% muslim, in europe or what ever country Christian or something else. What makes this religion more true than the other one? because your books says so? of course not. Even if there is a real and true religion, the chances of you being with it is like 5% out of all the religions in the world.

I am not knowledgeable about every religion, but I don't think this is true for the religions which don't believe in an afterlife in the way Christianity, Islam etc. do

This must be one of the shortest (and easier to read) posts.

As a Greek you should now that:
"λακωνιζειν εστι φιλοσοφειν" (talking like Spartans talk is philosophical - Being laconic is a synonym to short talking , brief and correct speech.)

BTW if we are in the correction loop, try to use capitals when starting a new sentence. It's easier to read and get what you mean that way.

BTW funny that you say that, given your views about women rights and the fact the women (and slaves of course) had no vote in the democracy of Athens.

I see you dropped the capitals again.

Facts? No, those are not facts - those 3 I highlighted are poor misguided opinions, sorry. That's why I asked where / what did you study.

True.

And by the way

Don't. And please use capitals in the start of a sentence. It's easier for someone to read that way.
