  •  Good point..Here's my take (0+ / 0-)

    I think the core aspect of religion is to diminish the psychic crush of knowing that one day, you will die.

    It's inevitable. We all will die. Now, each faith (for the most part) has some version of the afterlife. If one is true, religious logic dictates that the other isn't.

    So people basically fight and kill one another to validate their magic fantasy land. It's just too much for me to take seriously.

      our family I'm not touching the first point (not worth it - hope you understand).

      Regarding the second point, people fight and kill each other over many, many things - utopian paradises are not limited to religions after all. Personally, I think if folks actually bothered to think about the religious texts they're reading - I mean, really think about them as opposed to just turning the blinders on and doing the literal interpretation stuff - they'd see exactly how irreligious killing folks over the question of religion is.

      On that level I agree - it's pretty dumb because it contradicts what the religion itself stands for.
