[quote="greeney2"]There is an old saying "the older I get, the smarter my parents turned out to be". The older you will get, the more those things that never change that came from them, end up the most important things, that guide your human thoughts.
I agree with you in most respects in life with your statement. But when it comes to "organized religion", the older i get the more studying i do......the more i realize religion has done more harm to humanity and stunted more human questioning than its ever been worth. I have lots of friends that are religious and family, they are good people. But when it comes to tolerance and human questioning, they are stunted. I wouldnt just throw the blame at religion if i was truly unsure in any way. But through speaking with them and them being truthful to me. I knew after a while it isnt coincidence it was the moment when they were forced into this and they stopped all questioning of their surroundings because of their understanding and belief in the bible.
so (not u greeney)to the ppl sitting around judging me thinking im some sort of pissed off dumb teen behind a computer. It DID NOT come without thought and i do joke on occasion.
