As you said, if you do that "you don't need religion at all."



The problem is that there is so much of the Christian religion contradicted by other parts of the Christian religion that it is impossible to steer a consistant path.
Same goes with Islamic and Judaic fantasies.



And that is why so many persons do not attend services anymore. History shows as time marches on people get 'smarter' at least the majority.

No, it's possible. You just have to do what katie did and pick out consistent parts. Of course she apparently did that with different religions but as long as the parts picked out are consistent there's no problem.

Of course when you do that you're not really following any religion.

In the case of Christianity you have to follow the teachings of Jesus to truly be a Christian.

In the case of Islam your best bet is not to follow any of it. If you believe in that religion you're asking for trouble.



The parts I have picked out were consistent to each other, that is why some religious leaders/ persons of all three say there is one God. Since there are hundreds and I have read thousands of Christian faiths I think the vast majority agree you do have to believe in the Holy Trinity. However, the number of persons and over hundreds of years, wrote the Bible to control people and have power, having read the Bible, twice when I was young and bits of the Torah and Quran there is some really stupid stuff, I was 12 the first time and going through my two year religious period. I think if it is true that there is a God instead of darkness, I don't think anyone on earth can possibly name the requirements, they haven't been there yet..............wherever there is.

What people need to always keep in mind is that it doesn't make any sense at all to believe that God would communicate with just one guy like Mohammed or Joseph Smith and provide them with a brand new better version of a one true religion for all of mankind to follow. That has to be nonsense.

All religions are nonsense. They owe their continued existence to the hepl they afford rulers.

They definitely help rulers who want to do things which don't make sense. When you have people already doing that by following a nonsensical religion they are more likely to tolerate and even admire such a ruler.

But the most basic reason why we still see ridiculous religions like Islam and Mormonism in the world today is the virtually unlimited capacity of humans to believe nonsense.

Christianity is different only in degree of madness; it is mad too, it's just had a few rough edges smoothed.

Some branches of Christianity are bad. The Catholic Church certainly is because it also depends on that irrational idea that some human being has been singled out to know and tell his followers what God wants for everyone. That is a way to generate big problems as the Catholic Church has done for a long time.

It's also the kind of BS that cults are based on. Some doofus tells gullible people that he has a special relationship with God who provides him with messages that everyone else doesn't get.

That should always be a red flag for people to avoid that person like the plague and certainly not to follow them.

There is nothing wrong with having faith as long as it isn't over the top religious. I've seen many a time, it helps people through life and in death and I think it is unimportant what I think. Mohammed/Smith, check out Evangelical rallies, they have a direct connection with God, as do all religious leaders, that control persons lives, priests, the Pope and so on. If you can be vested without the Bible thumping and think you have your own direct line to God, a higher power, a spirit or Mohammed, Buddha, who cares.

The Christian religion consists of many copies from other religions.
for example....

Sorry, I can't post it.
