    There is no "yes or no" answer

    this thread is dumb


    edit: and you really think people on this website have a wide, varied knowledge of religion that they can use to debate this? Really? Wow.

    Religion exists.

    Is it needed? I don't think so. It just gives us one more reason to disagree and fight about it.

    Does God exist? I don't think so. I'd like to, but if one did than it's doing a pretty awful job.

    Have you seen the news lately?

    If there was a God (or at least a competent one) monitoring all of this, he/she would never have let things get this bad.

    Im not sure what to think about this subject anymore, I would say that i'm agnostic. Although I fall strongly on the side of evolution, rather than creation.

    I don't believe, but I don't disbelieve.

    One I thing I do know, is that religion is the one biggest causes of war in the world (along with politics).

    I also used to think that religion is just a way to keep the people under control, a way to pacify the country, if you will.

    Plus, if there really was an almighty power, a God, would he let all this war, pain and suffering happen in the world?

    Spirituality is a fine thing but organised religion is just a means of conditioning and control.

    What was God originally thought to do? Was he/she not supposed to help mankind thrive if the name of him/her was spread?

    Look at the world now. Some of the most religious countries are not doing well at all.

    If mankind was supposed to do everything themselves and fix their own problems, why would there be a God?

    exactly - God put us in charge of this world and it's up to us to keep it good. Look at all the good things that have happened - where you live, the fact that you are clothed, you have money, food.

    I think we're just some game of SimCity that some kid left running after giving up because he couldn't figure out how to keep people happy
