10 reasons Religion is Immoral1) You can't question faith.10 reasons Religion is Immoral5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The religious texts are believed despite mountains of evidence against them- If they were anything other than 'Holy' they would be sitting next to Harry Potter and Twilight right now. 'Because God said so' or 'Because I have faith' does not prove anything, anymore than me believing in Dragons because I saw one on a Welsh Flag and my flatmate told me the DO exist. It is also completely illogical for a society which relies in science to have such an attitude, I know enough from my boring statistics work that you need a LOT of evidence just to say 'this does not disprove the hypothesis'. But if I say 'you don't get healed by magic water' I'm ganna go to hell.
2) It stands in the way of scientific discoveries and evidence.
Religion prevents real science from being developed and understood by a significant amount of society, such as Geneses being taught in schools as fact, and Darwin being given as much regard as a crazy homeless man shouting in the street.

Okay, so I will now write about religion. The religion I am most familiar with (and the one everyone shoves down my throat) is Christianity. I am NOT against Christianity, actually. I am completely okay with talking and being friends with people who are Christians.

I have some Christian friends that are fine with people not believing in a deity. These are things that Christians have said (the ones that push religion down your throat). I am writing this from an atheist's point of view.

Having everyone and their mother stick preconceived notions in your face really makes you go crazy inside, or at least it did me.
Being Atheist doesn't mean I'm a "devil worshiper" or that I am a bad person.
I actually am a good person.
That's another thing America puts in your heads.
"Good Christian Girl, Good Catholic Girl"
There's no such thing as
"Good Atheist Girl"
Which I think is very dumb!
I am a good person. I care about others, I respect people, I love to laugh and make other people laugh, I love children, and helping people.
Just because I cannot identify myself with a religion doesn't mean I'm a bad person.
I in fact think the world would be SO much better off without religion.
Religion is the root of SO many problems.
So many wars are started over religion differences.
So many fights between people, community's, country's.
