My personal #1 reason that I don't like religion is because I like knowledge, I crave information like a crack attic craves crack! And Religion suppresses knowledge; not just the knowledge unfortunately, but it suppresses the entire drive to understand. With ideas like God created it and we can never comprehend how so don't try, religion wipes out the one thing that makes mankind great, our mind!

I don't go to church because I don't need another organisation telling me what to believe. I can decide these things for myself!

Christian 'love' has always seemed a bit lacking, especially when it comes to me being torchered for eternity just because our views differ.

Christianity is not a good moral system; a good moral system should not include a loop hole in which immoral acts are forgiven without consequence.

It brings me much joy and wonderment to understand that I am a product of evolution rather than having been created out of mud.

I would rather have evolved from an ape then have been created out of mud.

When it comes down to it, the bible is just a big book of multiple choice, and people choose the answers they want, and ignore the rest.

There is nothing a church or religion does to benefit society, that cannot be achieved through purely secular means.

To die, then come back to life in three days to pall around with friends for a while before ascending into heaven as a God isn't the same as the soldiers who died for my freedoms! Not in the least. Therefore those who say that Christ died for their sins, when he did not really "die" at all are making a blatant false statement. At the very lease they should include the people who absolutely died for them, too.

Accepting you're mortality, that eventually your life will end, brings meaning to the now and the life you have. Most everything we do is powered by the desire to live. If we could never die, and had an eternity, life would be meaningless! A million years after you do everything you could ever desire, you would still have an eternity left of mundane boredom.

The size of the number is inversely proportional to the number of similarities it has with something else. That is to say, you will find many more things that have to do with the number 3 compared to the number of things that have the number 18,446,744,073,709,551,617 in common. This is because we have evolved in a finite world so the majority of the items we count end before reaching the billions, trillions, etc.
