This week in religion: an answer for everything.

Solely worshipping and believing and praying for things that have been crammed into your mind isn't mentally healthy.  Avid church-goers grow up with their parents and other family members constantly telling them what's right and wrong, what is a sin and what isn't.  This is merely mind control, using fear, the greatest fear being eternal burning with the 'Devil'. 

There seems to be an answer to everything with Christians (and I'm going to use Christianity mostly, due to my lack of knowledge and ignorance in regards to other religions, even though they're all similar).
For instance, one fear-feeding phrase that pisses me off the most: "Satan's biggest accomplishment is for people to believe he doesn't exist".   That is absolutely preposterous.  A kindergartner could come up with that, yet millions follow that underdeveloped mindset.

When asked anything about good fortune- a tornado missing one's house, not getting ran over by a train, or winning the lottery.... it's all because the Lord 'raised his hand and watched over me.'  When asked about bad fortune- contracting an STD, crashing head-on into a transfer truck, or failing a test.... it's all because the Lord 'knows what is best and has his plan for me, even if it isn't now.'  Horse shit.

What about sinning, you ask?  Well, you may not ask, but I do.  I know so many people that attend church every Sunday and/or Wednesday, constantly asking for their sins to be forgiven.  Surely, you see what I'm getting at.  If you are so against premarital sex, offensive language, snortin' blow, and taking money from your cash register at work, then don't do it.  Oh wait- you can, as long as you ask the Lord for forgiveness so you can still see the pearly gates.

Think for yourself.  Be open-minded.  Don't disregard theories or experiments or outlandish things that seem impossible or ungodly.

.you are a plague.
