The problem with religion.

Jesus is speaking to His flock and He says,
"OK everyone, now listen carefully.  I don't want 4 different versions of this!"

So, basically, the problem with religion is that there are too many of them.

The ONLY problem?

Exactly! The fact that there are dozens of religions and thousands of invented gods out there, and that the advocates of all those religions and gods ALL feel theirs is the only true way, is just ONE of the problems with organized religion.

The fact that many of these believers are willing to--and indeed HAVE--murdered and shed blood in the name of their invented gods (imaginary friends) is ANOTHER problem with religion.

The fact that religion often stunts progress and growth and education and knowledge is yet ANOTHER problem.

The fact that religion teaches people that it's OK not to fully understand how science and nature and the real world works is ANOTHER problem.

The fact that the symptoms of alleged religious experiences among its members, like speaking in tongues r having god talk to them is almost the same as clinical psychosis is yet ANOTHER problem. Indeed, religious fervor is the most common symptom of many of the so-called "dis-associative orders" in psychology. Schizophrenia being one of them.

The fact that religious folks smugly reject science proofs offered to them that show the absurdity of some of the claims of their holy books is yet ANOTHER problem.

I could go on, of course. As the problems of religion in this world are manifold. I could make a list five times this long and supply proofs and links to support every claim. But I don't have the time nor the patience any more. Most of the zealots here have proven themselves to be too far gone to take any heed.

But always, I. Hope. This. Helps.

I think that the problem with religion is not the fact that there are too many of them, but the enforcement of close-mindedness that many religions propose. For some reason, it's a common trend that most religions have the "my way or the hell" mindset. Religion should be a topic of encouraged discussing, a branch of philosophy- however people have turned it into some sort of lifestyle.

In short, religion could be some much more, a way to discuss the nature of life, but close-mindedness prevents that.

The songs, "Stairway to Heaven" and "Highway to Hell" seems to hint at the expected numbers ;)
