Religion is a fascinating phenomenon to me. A few people in my life have tried their best to find purpose through it, with varying succes. This search for a purpose puzzles me. Cults, Eastern teachings, Western religions, New Age nonsense … it’s quite the list. But I left ‘faith’ behind me around the time I stopped believing in Santa and the Easter Bunny. I get more satisfaction from logic and discussion. Also, I’ve never been much of a group person, so the mandatory meeting of people every Friday, Saturday or Sunday is out of the question anyway.
I’m reading ‘The God Delusion‘, by Richard Dawkins and enjoying it very much. I’d recommend it to anyone interested in religion. And if you’re not much of a reader, there’s always Christopher Hitchins’ piece about Mother Theresa on YouTube. If you like your holy houses steamrolled.
I’ve made a topic in the forums if anyone wants to share his views.
