ive recently been thinking, why do we have religion?
ive never been religious myself so its easy for me to say but think about it, religion is one of the main causes of war and disagreement across the globe so why do we have it.
dont get me wrong i understand that people find comfort in believing in a god who can guide you when lifes hard- but why lead your whole life believing in one book. who wrote the bible? why was it written? it could easily just be a book of moral stories so why do people base all their actions and their whole lives around it.
i do think that people should live their lives as good people but religion doesnt need to be the reason- we all know right from wrong and surly we should just make the right choices without having to do it for a god and to go to heaven?
im someone who needs proof about things, and all the proof that says god is real is unrealistic and just wouldnt happen in real life- this is why i find it so hard to believe.
because people are so set on the way they believe there are conflicts between different religions and people just cant seem to accept the way of life that others have? i dont see how religion is more important than caring about everyone no matter who they are, eg religions who are against gay people.
this is just my opinion, id love to hear what other people have to say.

not a conspiracy theory at all. Just common knowledge.

Religious beliefs are not real and never have been. Everyone who understands scientific methodology(and why it’s better than other methods) and logic understands this.

People are made to believe in a god as a child. Those with a weak mind and/or limited intelligence will be stuck with that belief their whole lives.

I always love this "religious people are uneducated/weak minded/unintelligent".

It really has no basis and is so easily provable to be wrong.

You might not know god is fake as well. That is a conspiracy theory as well.

Was directed more Thomazo.

People believe all sorts of things with no proof, just gut feeling. Even when their is proof people very rarely verify it for themselves, they just believe what others have told them, even with regards to science.
