Until this past year, I was confused about exactly what I believed in terms of religion. Today however, there is no doubt. I believe religion to be one of the biggest scams and wastes of time in history. Think about it in this simple way. As governments began to form and people began to rule others, they realized they needed a way to control the population through more than just law. They realized the simplest way to control a large group of people is to simply tell them if they don’t do what you want, then they will go to hell for eternity after they die. Today I hear people talking about all these great things god does for them and I want to walk up to them and slap them in the head. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Apparently, the hard work people put in throughout their lives doesn’t mean shit because wherever you end up is simply where god meant for you to be. One thing that really pisses me off is how politicians, Republicans in particular, try to use god and the bible to prove their points to be correct. With the upcoming of the tea party in the past years it’s more adamant now than ever. Yet, if you sit down and talk to these people and present them with what’s really in the bible, they simply say we interpreted it wrong and that their way is correct. All religious people do is turn the bible and whatever their god says around to mean exactly what they want it to mean. I could sit here and type for hours about the reasons religion pisses me off, but I think you get the drift.
