I am an agnostic. my real problem lies in organized religion being used to control populations of people for the betterment of the upper classes and to the detriment of the lower classes. this is a common theme that anyone with half a brain and the ability to remove their blinders will inevitably see. god isn't the one we should be questioning, its the man made religions that use his name.

does anyone else feel the same? if not, tell me more, I am interested in everyone opinions.

Completely. You pretty much said it all. I hate that religion is used as an "excuse" for intolerance and ignorance.

Your right!!! specially all the money that they take from all their followers. Most religions "man made" all they care is the money or how rich and powerful they are going to became, doesn't matter who they have to steped on; makes me mad!!!

Yup.  Organized religion enables 'group-think'.  And groups don't think as objectively as individuals. 

For me the class difference thing doesn't jump out at me as much - but the population control does.  I feel religions that ban all birth control care more about their membership numbers than their member's abilities to feed and care for all those children, or for the plight of the woman that is often left responsible for them all.

Peace,

Kat

its basically a person who is unsure, someone who does not know which religion or god is real or "right"

I think that if there is a god, that it would be pretty arrogant of me to assume that I know what he wants of me, or that he cares either way.

I just tend to be offended when a stranger thinks that because I don't follow their specific doctrine, that I am "going to hell" why is it that a person with no religion is assumed to be incapable of leading a good life that anyone would be proud of?
