Religion is Doomed
« on: July 22, 2023, 06:46:38 AM »
In some good news, a new poll shows belief in such things as god and the devil have declined.  The future of god is grim

But the future of grim is on a nice little run.  Unless you stop it.

Too much about the profits.  Not enough about the prophets.   Too much fear mongering, not enough Golden Rule.   Anybody advocating hate in God's name simply has it wrong.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Just looking at the poll itself, there were a few interesting numbers. The one that surprised me the most: "While 94 percent of Protestants said they believe in God, 85 percent of Catholics said the same."

In other words, 15% of people who identify as Catholics don't even believe in god.

That's not weird. How many women don't think they are a woman, or men don't believe they are a man?  ;)

Catholicism is going the way of Judaism, where it is becoming a cultural affinity as much as it is a religious one.

Yeah but catholicism isn't exactly something that the non-religious would want to associate with given its recent (and really, entire) history. Plus you don't even get to treat yourself to a fun birthright trip to a war zone.

I have experience with the Judaism half of that but not the Catholicism half, so I'll take your word for it. That would explain at least some of the polling.

I just took a look at the poll (not just the article) and Jewish people's views were never mentioned. I'd have been interested to see them.

I could see how this is true. I know a lot of people that were raised Catholic, and confirmed Catholic, but really don't believe in religion anymore. They still identify as Catholic though.

That’s bc they don’t want to be associated with the racist / homophobic / xenophobic mess that is Evangelicals.

I probably should say something about white nationalists as well.

What does going to school at Marquette have to do with understanding the destruction caused for centuries by religion?  Or understanding if there is a god, pretty safe bet none of the religions of the world have a clue about such a thing?  Or understanding the dangerous road America is on forcing religious zealotry on citizens who don’t believe in such things?

Odin > Christian God

That's fine. It's a binary choice that everyone makes.

But God, as with Mark Twain-----the reports of His demise are greatly exaggerated.
