    Religeon can move people in many ways. Not all are good. A mother in Maryland thought there was evil in her young children so she conducted an exorcism and killed the 2 youngest children, ages 1 and 2..... 2 other children were hurt but they will survive. I guess she felt she needed to do this. I really can't understand how you can cause harm towards a defenseless human being. Why didn't she discuss this at her church (they questioned the pastor of her church) and ask for help. This is the most horrific murder I can remember. I would hope for a speedy trial and a fast execution. Without decades of appeals.

    Because religion is about believing and obeying what you have been trained to believe. The truth is meaningless the only truths are those your region preaches! Eternal salvation and life is the reward - I'd rather live for today, myself.

    "organized religion" goes back a long ways (roughly to 4000 B.C.) but the pagans witnessed their own gods before that .. the link below will provide more information on "old time religions":

    Arizona,
    I really liked that link. Who knows, I may be a Pagan. I believe I'm going to buy the book to learn more. Thank you.

    There may be another dark side which may mean the end of humanity. Most churches dictate no birth control or abortions. Right now this globe is overpopulated and causes what was said in an other thread global warming and climate change. We are poluting this globe in an alarming rate; our resources will become depleted, like clean water, clean air etc. Considering one person produces at least 20 pounds of garbage a week, then we will also run out of landfills which will polute this globe even more. Thus in other words churches are helping us to make this globe a "hell" and may lead to the end of our species.
