Do you agree or not?
    #955019 - 10/12/02 02:53 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Here is a little quote that i heard the other day written by an islamic author. I cant remember his name but his quote has remained in my head and i find it quite interesting. I just wanted to see what the shroomery's reaction to it would be.

"Religion is the poison of the blood."


Reply, dont reply; i dont really care, just posted it to make all of you think a little.

I'd say religion is the poison of the mind.

I agree with the both of you. My opinion, which doesnt count for much, is that religion creates a sense of detatchment from what is real in this life. Too many people use it as an out or for justification for their actions.

There is poison in a snake; but though others may die
if bitten by it, the snake is not affected by the poison.

In a sense yes, but you fail to see that religion affects more than just one person being bitten. The disallusion that religion creates is way more powerful than that of a snake bite my friend. Look at the Crusades, what Hitler did during WWII, or how terrorists use their religion to justify acts of mass muder like 9/11 or the conflict in Israel on the Gaza Strip. All these things have one common theme, they are all the product of radical religious beliefs(POISON).

"There is poison in a snake; but though others may die
if bitten by it, the snake is not affected by the poison. "

spoken like a true wise man. and i totally agree. Ones beliefs only hurt someone else if acted on.....such as 9/11, WWII and Crusades.

Good call guys. I am really not a real religious person or anything i just wanted people to think about all that is happening in the world around us. I find it funny and you two put it well, it is amazing the effect a person with a cause can have by using religion in the wrong ways. It is similar to the saying that guns dont kill people people kill people. It is all connected in that way that our free will leads some to using religion for the wrong ways instead of embracing its goodness.

We'll never know... but if there was no religion, it'd be easier to remedy those situations.

I do not think religion is necessarily bad but it can be.

Man is the culprit, not religion.

Cheers,

Organized religion is the poison of progress.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Organized religion is the poison of progress.

I guess so. Please elaborate though. How exactly does religion taint the progress (of what)? The progress of thinking I'm assuming?

Religon is a corperation (modern day)

Religon is opiates for the masses

Religon is human mental slavery

Religon is the wip they crack to keep man in check

Religion is only a doctrine. It has no inherent goodness or evil. It is the deeds of men that you should judge not the word on his tongue as he is slaying your brother.

If there were no blamable doctrine, do you think it is possible that people would think about their actions more?

Fair enough... impossible to test anyways though, right?

They'd probably just blame something else.
I don't know what (a golden calf maybe?)... but they'd blame it.
