    what's your stance on religion?

    I used to be a Muslim but I left islam a long time ago. I do believe in god but I don't subscribe to any religion.

    I am not a believer, although I believed in my childhood. But then somehow the faith passed and I can't find an explanation for this. I am calm about believing people. I mean truly believers and obeying the laws of their faith. But I do not feel positive emotions in relation to the hypocrites who went to pray, received absolution and immediately began to behave like the last bastards again. This is no longer faith, this is hypocrisy. I don't want to be one of those.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Nope. Not at all.

    I fully believe religion exists for one of three reasons:

    1. A way for ancient peoples to explain things that could not be scientifically proven at the time.

    2. A way to subjugate and control, often with the use of fear (example, believe in this specific god or suffer eternally).

    3. Tax evasion.

    It's an outdated concept that holds far too much power in people's lives that is often weaponized and used as a reason to oppress various groups of people. They're basically legal cults.

    I stopped being a Christian. Not because I don't believe your god exists, I just got tired of them telling lies (work your way up from Jesus's birthday and the similarities between Odin being hung on the world Tree and the Crucifixion) and found better ones.

    In my experience the Christian guy just liked messing with people. Job (Satan and i have a bet). Abraham (No, really put the knife down. I was just kidding!). Adam and Eve (no sense of right or wrong? Well whatever you do don't eat from THIS TREE RIGHT HERE while I'm conveniently absent!). Lucifer (no really, you're my favorite.). Joseph Smith & Moses (No really cross this desert. Land of milk and honey You're protected under divine law, I swear! Nothing bad will happen to you ever again.) Oh and he once mooned Moses when Moses asked to see his face. True story.


    Plus that whole "one god" BS. It says in the bible there are other gods, not just false gods. Yahweh has an ex wife for crying out loud (Shekhina) as does Adam (lilith).

    As for the religion itself, I'm not sure all of that is really their god's fault or if his followers are just intolerant or stupid or what. I mean giving Jesus (his real name's Joshua by the way) your sins instead of, I don't know, owning up to them? Yeah, that'll turn out well. Plus that whole "dark skinned people are cursed by god" (you know because living on 5 out of six continents and having melanin in hotter climates than the snowy wastes the white folks come from doesn't show favoritism... or the gay thing where somehow god makes everything and can wipe out anyone he doesn't like with a thought or at least some angels yet, gay people don't qualify?


    The best Christian variant i found was Hermeticism. Hermes the Thrice blessed seemed sensible at least. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermet...%20god%20Thoth).

    The Christian afterlife isn't really that appealing either. In most religions you reincarnate until you get it right and then become a god. I did a lot of studying and white religions liek taoism and Shinto have their points, the best i could find was the first, Ancient Babylonian. So first come first served.

    Doesn't hurt that it predates Christianity and even Judaism by a few thousand years.

    I've actually seen the Easter Bunny though...

    what you said rings true of Islam as well, they have literally the same stories. the main trouble in my opinion is with old testament and especially the Torah. folk tales written by defeated people in which they have imaginary victories and land. fast forward 2000 years later and more than 4 billion people believe this.

    and the point you mentioned about Yahweh not being the only god is extremely relevant. it's stated in the ten commandments, you shall not take other gods. debunks the whole myth about Abrahamic faith being the first monotheism.

    Meh. I like the sound of going to Heaven for all eternity when I pass away better. It's a very positive thing, just from my perspective.

    “I mean, d'you know what eternity is? There's this big mountain, see, a mile high, at the end of the universe, and once every thousand years there's this little bird-"
    -"What little bird?" said Aziraphale suspiciously.
    -"This little bird I'm talking about. And every thousand years-"
    -"The same bird every thousand years?"
    -Crowley hesitated. "Yeah," he said.
    -"Bloody ancient bird, then."
    -"Okay. And every thousand years this bird flies-"
    -"-limps-"
    -"-flies all the way to this mountain and sharpens its beak-"
    -"Hold on. You can't do that. Between here and the end of the universe there's loads of-" The angel waved a hand expansively, if a little unsteadily. "Loads of buggerall, dear boy."
    -"But it gets there anyway," Crowley persevered.
    -"How?"
    -"It doesn't matter!"
    -"It could use a space ship," said the angel.
    Crowley subsided a bit. "Yeah," he said. "If you like. Anyway, this bird-"
    -"Only it is the end of the universe we're talking about," said Aziraphale. "So it'd have to be one of those space ships where your descendants are the ones who get out at the other end. You have to tell your descendants, you say, When you get to the Mountain, you've got to-" He hesitated. "What have
    they got to do?"
    -"Sharpen its beak on the mountain," said Crowley. "And then it flies back-"
    -"-in the space ship-"
    -"And after a thousand years it goes and does it all again," said Crowley quickly.

    There was a moment of drunken silence.

    -"Seems a lot of effort just to sharpen a beak," mused Aziraphale.
    -"Listen," said Crowley urgently, "the point is that when the bird has worn the mountain down to nothing, right, then-"

    Aziraphale opened his mouth. Crowley just knew he was going to make some point about the relative hardness of birds' beaks and granite mountains, and plunged on quickly.

    -"-then you still won't have finished watching The Sound of Music."

    Aziraphale froze.

    -"And you'll enjoy it," Crowley said relentlessly. "You really will."
    -"My dear boy-"
    -"You won't have a choice."
    -"Listen-"
    -"Heaven has no taste."
    -"Now-"
    -"And not one single sushi restaurant."

    A look of pain crossed the angel's suddenly very serious face.”

    ― Neil Gaiman, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch


    indeed. it's also a way to actually make money.
    To be fair in japanese Hell they accept bribes and offerings from the living to get people through Hell faster often with less severe punishments. How your friends and family want you treated after you're gone does kind of show how good of a person you were. lots og others too. it's where the Day of the Dead and Halloween got started
