    How can you still be religious?

    When you hear so many good arguments from atheists, and when you hear how religion is behind so much misery in the world how can you still be religious? Do you just ignore it?

    I never understood why so many people are hell-bent on converting people to their beliefs. Also for the most part religion isn't behind a lot of the misery in the world; it's the people acting on their interpretations and impulses/desires.

    Don't see the point in worrying about why people are still religious.
    If they aren't hurting you then ignore it.

    Re: How can you still be religious?

    I'm agnostic, but as a ex-believer I can tell you there's more to being religious from a worldly aspect. There is a sense of belonging and purpose in the universe that can only be found through religion; being "gods chosen people". There is also the moral and social aspect, some religions offer a set of morals, principles, and values that people normally wouldn't build as an individual, knowing that almighty vengeful sky god constantly watching over you is honestly what it takes for some people to have the slightest sense of morality. There's a sense of community, family,a whole list of crap people find in religion, and those things allow them to overlook scientific fact and all the negative impacts Religion can have.

    I don't believe any of those aspect justify still observing a religion, since you can find purpose and morality without it, but I can understand why people can see all the chaos in the world and still believe in god.

    A religious person who'd be so easily talked out of his or her faith by atheists really never had true faith at all.

    What good arguments? I've never heard a single good argument from an atheist. It's all theories and assumptions and they can't prove anything.

    What's so wrong in believing that there are beings greater than yourself?

    Never heard any good argument from atheists...
    They simply deny what they don't see, not my problem but that isn't any reason why people should stop believing what they believe in.

    And it's human nature that leads them to chaos, no point blaming it on different things when it'll always resurface in many other forms.

    Re: How can you still be religious?

    Religion is a natural human desire, the cornerstone of religion isn't worshiping God as most would have you believe, it's about an after-life.

    A place where you see the people that you love again. That's what people want the most from religion and nothing more, it's a natural impulse.

    Re: How can you still be religious?

    notice how all the religion threads are made by atheists. bashing and insulting the intelligence of religious people.
    When someone is truly confident in what he believes (confidence comes from belief based on logic) he gets a sense of peace and doesn't really care about others or their beliefs.
    But when someone is not sure and unconfident, maybe lacking self esteem or intelligence. He always tries to get the approval of others, when he sees others believing in religion he gets unconfortable. That's because, in the end, he is not that sure, in fact he is not sure at all.

    Why does people still believe in religion ?
    Go document yourself on religions by reading on it and searching on it if you are that smart and intelligent and stop breaking our balls. intelligent people read and don't base their beliefs on thoughts as light as the wind.

    do you understand ? na I don't think you do.

    i was born in a muslim family, but my parents never really were that religious in the first place, despite both of them growing up in a muslim country. they did tell me stuff about god but they were pretty casual themselves. at around 10/11 i started thinking how stupid religions (and their followers) are.

    thats correct. although i would say i am not 100% atheist. lets say about like from 1-10 im a 9. it is possible, that we are like just an experiment to a higher being, (aliens, or gods or whatever). it is also possible, that were just brains in a tube, like in the matrix, many things are possible. however it is quite a stretch to claim thats the real deal. but knowing science, history, paleontology, biology and human psychology and nature, it is almost certain to say, that pretty much every other argument is more valid than what the abrahamic religions claim.

    Probably. I saw through the farce before reaching my teen years and haven't looked back since. It's one less rule book to have to abide by.
