I've never been religious and i've never felt the need to be. Do most people become religious because they see a 'sign', or because they want to exist in heaven after death? Some people say that it's an attempt to explain how things became ... which I don't see as possible because no one could then explain how the creator came to be. Or am I looking at this wrong?
Basically, i'd love to know the reasoning behind something that billions of people across the world take part in, without any basis of evidence for their belief, other than word of mouth. I also find the hipocracy of many religions incredible. Why do so many muslims in my school wear ear rings in the shape of a crucifix, and why will slaughters occur in the name of religion? To me it all seems like a huge excuse for peoples actions, and a way of dealing with issues that aren't yet understood by humans.
Thoughts / comments / answers!?
no-one really believes we go after this life right?
i don't think that you can belive in heaven without hell surely it is all relative!
But a concept is that heaven is just the abscence of bad(hell)...
therefore, hell is abscence of good (heaven)... they cancel each other out so that means we don't feel, ****...
soz i was just chatting waffles, lemme ponder further and give a better stance...
