LOL, you sure it's not the other way around? When people learn about religions, their thought process might get influenced towards what best fits a particular religion(s). They tend to favor religion over the norms and customs of society, and get blinded by the religion probably.

<div></div>Well ego operates everywhere , in religion, politics and in everything thing. We may not need religion but we do need philosophy at least to understand several things that science is ignorant about.
Philosophy, yes. Religion, no. You see, philosophy is based on a fixed set of beliefs that can be proven by a set of observations. Religion is completely bogus, with no evidence to back it up, it is just how some ignorant people try to influence people to think like them through commercial means. I'm sorry, but for me, religion has now become more of a business than based on faith(no matter how incoherent the faith may be)


debu Hug missed ya !

totally agree with u.. i believe in god, but not in any allah, jesus, vishnu etc... poor evidence in my view.
The faith should make sense too, na? Idol worship is the worst thing I have seen in my life, I think some other members will bare witness to that, and what's up with all these guidelines you have to follow, with all the religions, but in particular Islam. Confused (Not bashing Muslims here).What people mean to say is that some spiritual being came and told them to do puja/read namaz/go to mass etc.Confused
 
Missed you too!Hug

Well, I wouldn't necessarily say its bogus, but still, I would go for Philos any day over Religion (but that's because Philos is more interesting to learn than Religion Smile )

You say it like its a bad thing. No faith is better than blind faith, I think.

(of course now POH will start a debate on whether atheism itself is a faith or not with me, so I'm going to run before that happens LOL)
