The problem with religion is that it is just an opinion.
Religion is based on faith.
Faith is believing in something in the absence of evidence or proof.If there is no evidence or proof you are just giving an opinion on what you think is right.
If you try to prove your opinion is right you defeat the whole purpose of faith.
"For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible."
and we need proof god exists other than cause a bunch of people believe he does.....
No you don't. That's the difference between faith and proof. Science is based on proof, religion is based on faith.
Simply because jews don't celebrate christmas...
The funny thing about religion is that throughout history there has been hundreds of gods and cults that with time became ridiculous. So what makes you believe yours is the true one... silly bs to me.
Faith. The issue is some people can't imagine believing in something that they cannot prove, which is fine- I'm not knocking that, it just doesn't seem like someone believing in God, Allah, Muhammad, etc. should be considered bs simply because you cannot prove it. Faith isn't limited to religion; anyone who's married has faith in their spouse. You can't prove your wife won't sleep with the mailman but you have faith (or at least hope) she won't. I'm not comparing religion to the faithfulness of your wife/husband, I'm simply stating faith is not limited to religion.
It's impossible for the finite to understand or comprehend the infinite. But I guess if you don't believe in the infinite, there is nothing to understand or comprehend- which sure makes it easier to an extent.
Attached is my opinion on the way religion should be talked about. The thing I despise about Christianity is the idea that if you don't believe exactly what I believe- then you're going to hell. The Bible is a guide, I don't take everything in it literally; if I did, I wouldn't have any eyes, tongue or hands at this point in my life. Religion, specifically for me- Jesus, God, the Holy Spirt, cannot be proven- and that's fine for me, I don't need the proof. It's simply a belief or a choice that I made that helps me be a better person. I know plenty of people who I consider to be good people, people I respect, who are not Christians- and that's fine, that's their choice, but I'm not going to try and force Christianity on them, it goes against all the teachings in the Bible.
