The communists also dont believe in religion, calling it "the narcotic of the people", why?, because there can be no spirituality or inteligence when it comes to making robots of your citizens.
Communism is one of the most beautiful ideological visions; Total equality and complete happiness. It failed miserable in our world today, but ideologically speaking it had some brilliant ideas. Religion is indeed a narcotic of the many, because it clouds reasoning. Communism promoted intelligence and religion does nothing but step away from reasonable thought. The democratic party and liberalism also have freedom in it's roots; is that really so moronic for people to think for themselves instead of blindly following the words of a man in a big hat and a book?
They want to make everyone equal. I hate to burst your bubble, but we are not all equal, some people are smarter than others, some are wealthier than others, and some are prettier than others, thats life!
Is that not what religion is doing? I could swear I read something in the bible that said "and all men are equal in the vision of god almighty."
Thats how the Lord made us.
Yea I'm sure about that
You start this thread, and you gave your opinion. I think I should be able to state my opinion without you berating me for my views.
I welcome any opinion no matter how different it is from mine(unlike MANY religious people.) This is however a discussion forum and I see nothing wrong with debuting each others arguments. After all debate breeds sober results.
But Im not supprised, its typical leftist/defeatist behavior.
Neither am I, excessive stereotypes are common in uneducated people or those who fail to be able to defend the reasoning behind their stance.
What I mean to say is, without religion, people are more likely to be immoral and evil when there is no threat of what kind of punishmenet awaits them from thier God. I dont mean to say that all religious people are upstanding/fine cirizens, that is rediculous.
I disagree with an idea to preach something that has no scientific base to the masses that can have such a powerful effect on their life. People should live and enjoy their life instead of being scared of going to hell.
One point that always bugged me, and perhaps one can clarify it for me is this. God is all-powerful, all-knowing being; He put us humans on this earth to live. Why do we need to pray to him, if he truly is the higher power would he not be above basic human needs such as a need for flattery?
And also, why did he make some people "bad" in the first place, what is his gain from this?
