I don't think many people realize that Christianity was NOT the oldest religion, or the only religion that ever existed. I met a few of the faith that are absolutely ignorant to this fact, and it irritates me to no end when they try to harbor on that fact. No.
I do not believe in this religion, nor do I directly devote myself to a single one in itself. However, I do believe the ones that revolve around God or Allah to be truly blasphemous, and inherently violent and unaccepting of those who wish to deny it.
I believe the bible, the Torah, and the Qu'ran have various discrepancies and faults, because they were NOT written by God.
They were written by the human element. The human element has faults. There is substantial proof that a Pope changed the BIRTH DATE OF CHRIST to fit with Yuletide celebrations (I've read many sources that say the same, though, this may not all be true.)
Not only that, but they claim that those who do NOT believe in god are morally injust and susceptable to becoming criminals, pedophiles, murderers, rapists, etc.
I've claimed myself to be atheist countless times, though I sway with experiences that I've had, which is NATURAL for a human being. However, I denounce pedophilia and find it disgusting and wrong. Why? Children can not properly and healthily reproduce. Ever. Nor can their growing bodies cope with the stresses of an adult, whether CONSENTING OR NOT, entering their body. However, the prophet in the Qu'ran (I will respect muslims enough to admit I've no idea how to spell his name properly), had sex with a child.
I would never rape. Why? It's terrible, I cringe every time I heard on the news that it had happened to somebody, and I myself was put through that terrible ordeal. I would never wish it on anyone, ever. However, in Christianity, Lot was significantly raped by his two daughters so they could carry his children. Catholic priests are caught raping children every day it seems, yet the Papacy does NOTHING to combat or bring the priests to justice.
I could never kill someone. I was in a war, I had to do what I needed to survive, but I will tell you this now, that while I did not believe in many gods back then, I sent a prayer to Odin to bring their souls to their houses of peace. I cried, I wept, and even now I can't sleep because I see their faces. Yet the bible, a god that 'Loves and cares for his people' Had slaughtered them on countless occasions, and showed nearly no mercy every single time.
Note, I mean no disrespect to those who believe in religions, as long as they respect me and beliefs in turn. COMMENTS CLOSED HERE, VISIT [link] TO COMMENT! NEW LOCATION!
