I've been going to church for a few months now and I'm having such a
Hard time grasping this whole god thing. Maybe Jesus. He was a self disciplined
Passionate caring spiritual, person who sometimes let his sinless existence make him cocky
But he was focused on his preachings? Wasn't he born in sin? I'm not real educated on B.C. Stuff but it makes sense that religion and god were taught to maintain order, give people a reason not to be crappy people and so it's not so depressing to tell our kids, that we just... Die and that's it. Recycled into the earth?

You don't need God or religion to have a reason NOT be crappy people. It's in how you raise them not what they believe. And if you find the idea of death as depressing without an "afterlife' it is because you are a pessimistic person and take for granted the little things in life that make it worth it, even if there isn't an "afterlife" when you die.
As for the Bible mentioning Dinos and Galaxies, no it doesn't but people will twist it anyway they can to justify what they know is wrong with the Bible rather than admit it is fundamentally flawed.
