plastic bags have a point.
i believe plastic bags exist but i don't blow up folk, build cathedrals or sing songs in their name.
But you liken god to plastic bags in that they are man made for a purpose, which is where we differ.
Just so we can be clear, I've not blown anyone up, nor even built a cathedral. i have sung songs but that didn't hurt anyone, and only helped others (in that they enjoyed it, and helped them in their spirituality for that moment).
I don't fully understand god and I don't think anyone does really. I believe in god and feel god, and I get that others don't and I get why. I don't want to force belief on anyone, I rose to troll becuase i think the view that religion has done no good and only bad was grossly incorrect.
So Kong I think I started it to be fair.
I actually retracted my post to a degree and corrected myself.
You can't compare plastic bags to a religion! Yes to many it's all man made and if so both have a point. But to the point of view of a believer that is never going to be the case and you'll never win that argument. To be honest that is a gross mis-comparison.
I'm not a believer or even a fan but organised religion whether you like it or not has had an very important role in the the shaping the very fabric of society and how people think and act many of which are imo bad but also there has been lots of good too. And all this way before Christ (or any other modern religion), the Greeks or the Romans.
I just don't understand why folk feel the need to follow and be guided in their life. I'm not saying everyone should lead because that won't happen but think people should think for oneself and question why? People should have more tolerance and understanding in one another's faith as a believer or a non-believer and should not have the others views stuffed down thier throat.
