I take it that you haven't studied religion much.
Which religion are we talking about? Islam? Buddhism? Harry Potterism?
Bible is a morally outdated book filled with anecdotal evidence. It is delusional to base one’s life on a single book.
Belief without evidence is irrelevant os social acceptance. Gods and fairies carry equal credible weight.
You are a Christian simply because your parents indoctrinated you to better fit your peers. Same goes for Islam and other religions.
Have you asked yourself how come there are 1.5 billion Muslims? Are they all nuts? Is there a slim chance that maybe you are believing in a fairy tale?
Religion is a cop out…it's the easy way to live in ignorance..it's a manipulation of the gullible…It's a SCAM of global proportions...
