I got the following quote from a free online movie called Zeitgeist (it is a movie with lots of conspiracy theories but it has some good stuff and it can be found here http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/)
I am not going to get it right because I do not want to try to find the quote and memorize it from a 2 hour movie.
"Religion would have you believe that there is an invisible man in the sky who can see what you are doing 24 hours a day for the rest of your life. And this man has ten rules which if you don't follow will lead to an eternity in hell where you will rot and burn forever...............................................................but he loves you.......................and he wants MONEY!!!!!"
Now I am not saying that I don't believe in god it is just the god that christianity or the bible would have you believe in seems unjust. But some people would say that you have a whole lifetime to repent and clean yourself of sin so that you will go to heaven. That's cool, but if you think about it, what is one lifetime compared to an eternity of punishment (or heaven, but the only people who will get there are christians.) This does not seem as fair as many people say he is.
I also have some other things to point out, who was Cain or Able's wife? Does it say anywhere in the bible that Adam and eve had daughters and if they did, wouldn't the whole affair be incest? which I believe is a sin. Yes most of these will be little questions I have. I guess this was more on christianity than anything.
And religion in general has been the cause of quite some serious disputes. Such as the Crusades, the Inquisition, residential schools, the witch hunts and other such calamities. I am sure god would be proud of his followers.
Well if this is offensive please let me know and I will change it. Thanks for reading!
