    If we didn't have religion, where would we be today? You've said the negatives; now, list some positives. :p Why did you say what you did? Explain, please. I'd love to hear. =)
    My religion - Christianity
    Why do I believe? Well, because I believe that we have a Creator. I do NOT believe that a star had a supernova and exploded which caused to make a planet called Earth. Someone had to have planned it out...the magnetic field, the layers of air, everything. I believe that Someone greater than us all, aka God, has a plan for each and every one of us. I do NOT believe in evolution. Why? I KNOW I didn't come from a monkey. o.e Science itself proves it.
    Speaking of science, let me tell you why I believe what I believe and how I know it's true. =D
    Ok, so, ever heard of fossils? Over the years, scientists have discovered many pieces of decayed animals way underneath the surface of the earth. In the Bible, there was a very crucial event called the Flood. Obviously, there was a flood, hence the name. It lasted for 40 days and 40 nights. That's a little over a month. This flood was so large, that it covered the entire earth. All but one of each gender of each species of animal died. How did that happen? God spoke with a man named Noah. He told him to build an ark (a HUGE boat (no, not a ship) that's a few miles long) that would hold all of the animals and Noah's family. Whoever was on the boat survived. Whoever wasn't drowned. Why did God pick Noah? Because he was really the only TRUE faithful man to God. Why am I telling you this? Well, hold your horses. I'm almost there. God sent a Flood to Earth.
    Why, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.
    Genesis 6 gives the background of the world at the time leading up to Noah and the Great Flood. In order to understand why God sent the Flood, it is important to consider the circumstances that preceded it – including the actions of mankind and the actions of God.
    “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5, emphasis added)
    Mankind’s depravity had reached a level that evil entirely permeated every part of his being. His wickedness was great- that is, his actions were wicked. Every imagination was evil -  his mind was wholly corrupted. Every thought of his heart – his will, his desires, his emotions, his passions, had all become so sin stained that there remained nothing within them that was  not evil. These people upon whom God poured out the Flood were not merely dabbling in sin here and there, everything that they were doing was an horrific abomination!
    “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Genesis 6:11-13, emphasis added)
    Lest we have any doubts, let me say that the Earth was corrupted and filled with violence! There is a linguistic device employed in Hebrew that we see throughout the Old Testament, and that is emphasis through repetition. Whenever a word or phrased is used repetitively, it indicates a stronger or greater degree of the expression. The evil depths that the people who lived before the Flood had sunk to is strongly emphasized and amplified here in verses 5, and 11-13.
    In considering why God sent the Flood, we must first realize that those living upon the Earth were completely and utterly wicked beyond the hope of changing. There were no innocent bystanders caught up in the Flood; everyone was guilty of the most deplorable sinfulness. The rebellion against God that we saw taking root in Cain and his descendants had now reached a fruition that God could not overlook.
    That set aside, if you go back up in this post a little, you'll see where I was talking about the animals and whatnot. Scientists, even non-Christian scientists, say that there must have been some sort of enormous disaster, such as a flood, a few thousand years ago. If you put two and two together....then, tada! You have an answer! The Flood is proof that God is real.
    There's my explanation of why I believe in what I believe—Christianity.

    I'm sorry. While we do allow users to share (within limits) their religion. We do not allow discussion of why one or better than the other, or why you should be following one over the other. This just creates hurtful discussions and name calling, etc.

    Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'.
    I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.
