Religion, A Fallacy To Man Kind Essay

684 words - 3 pages

What is religion? The bible's definition of religion is an organized system of beliefs, rites, and celebrations on a supernatural power. Is there such thing as a supernatural power? This is a question I always ponder, therefore, my speculation and conjecture on religion increases everyday. In reality religion has been a destruction to mankind, a misuse of time and money, and has been educated by a fallacious bible.Most religions are evil in my opinion.

Presently in Ireland, protestants and catholics are killing each other for having different beliefs on religion. This destruction of mankind is no true religion.

Religion brings fear to man, in fear of burning in the religiously make-believe "Hell fires." Hell is such a stupid vile concept, made up by greedy evil people in order to control the minds of human beings. Consequently, we suffer and believe we are doing wrong, but we are not. I believe it's because religion has brainwashed followers by the preaching of the concept of SIN. Unfortunately, priests meet their goals by having his followers seek comfort in religion. We do not need religion to believe in are self. When we meet are goals and when religious people perform kindnesses it is the people who deserve the credit, not the religion.Religion is a big waste of time and a big money eater. Think of the cost in maintaining...
