RELIGION: A LIFELONG CON JOB ON THE GULLIBLE MASSES
In the year 325 CE in the Country of Turkey, The Council of Nicaea compiled ridiculous stories and writings that have no evidence in what is now called the bible. They created a new religion to gain power, influence and money. Christianity isn't the only religion with nonsensical books though. There are 1000's of religions and cults. They are all baloney. There is abundant evidence that man invented gods.
It has been said, what can be said without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. Pretending to know things that a person doesn't actually know is actually, well, a lie; and yet that is the lifeblood of religion. Religion is basically taking playing pretend way too far. No religion can survive these two words: Prove it.
*Confirmation Day Picture: I am the one on the far left. Confirmation is one example of religious brainwashing I talk about in my book. If you are built with love and empathy there is no reason to dilute yourself with a ridiculous cult, religion, or imaginary gods.
People don't need religion. Religion needs people.
Religiously unaffiliated people have been growing as a share of all Americans for some time. Pew Research Center’s massive 2014 Religious Landscape Study makes clear just how quickly this is happening, and also shows that the trend is occurring within a variety of demographic groups – across genders, generations and racial and ethnic groups, to name a few. Because we no longer need religion, in my book, I'll explore what we as a society can do about it. I'll also explore what is behind enormous shift. There is no kind way to say people who are religious have devoted their life to delusional fantasies.
*If you give an automatic reoccurring gift to a religious organization, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to cancel it now. What are you waiting for? Let's stop giving our money to these con artists. Religion takes advantage of the generosity of the gullible.
You have a free pass to walk away from religion whenever you want to. Religion uses make-believe spirituality as a business to con people.
