Religion

Religion is an interesting topic. I am flabbergasted by how many people human beings destroy because of religion – not by God or whatever name assigned to your deity, but by people displaying hateful behavior for their religion. I would never create or serve a God that wants me to kill other human beings for Him or Her.

Whether or not God exists, all religions are created by people. Human beings wrote everything ever written about God or for God. Religions stick to their story that writings they believe in are inspired by God, unfortunately most of the inspired writers are dead, so we cannot question them. Not only are the documents written by humans, the writings are translated from one language to another many times over. Then you get hundreds of interpretations about what the Bible or Koran are supposed to mean. The Mormons have the Book of Morman to supplement the Bible teachings. The Hebrew Bible ignores what Christians call the New Testament and have religious documents that are not used or accepted by any other religion. I have no objection to any writing people consider holy.

Believe what you want to believe and it is okay with me. Like everyone else I am convinced that what I believe is true, but I do not feel obligated to share my religious beliefs with anyone else. 

I do object when your religion threatens other people. I only know of one religion that has large groups inside their religion that follow an interpretation that demands they slay other human beings.
