Have you ever noticed how religious people of vastly opposing world views will proudly tell you their opining is based on scripture?
I've heard people claim that jesus was a socialist, a capitalist, a pacifist, a military leader, a religious revolutionary and an orthodox rabbi.
I've heard people say jesus would vote republican….
I've heard religious jews justify abortions, and heard those who oppose them - both claiming that's what the
I've heard rabbis who justify evolution and heard rabbis who oppose it- and they all quoted the bible.
I've heard rabbis praise the military occupation of Palestine in the name of Judaism, and I've heard rabbis who speak harshly against it- because it
negates jewish values.
I've heard people praise Judaism for promoting equality between men and women, gentiles and jews- and I've heard people criticize Judaism specifically
because it is so discriminatory.
I've heard muslims speak of peace and pacifism in the name of islam, and I've seen my share of suicide bombers.
How much more obvious can it be that religion is completely redundant?!?! How is it that so many people are simply blind to the fact that they are all
cherry-picking what they like, and by that actually rendering god in their own
image- and thus making him completely pointless…
Is there a stronger argument for the fact that god is a very human delusion?!
What are your thoughts?
