Religion Will Kill Us!

Before you start getting defensive and start coming up with arguments as to why your religion is humanity’s saviour, let me just add that your religion predicts an apocalyptic future with no intention to save it, so please take your sit and just read.

I am not here to say God is not real, I am not an atheist, but I believe that religion and spirituality are two different things, plus religion is very toxic. Religion puts people under the control of others, religious leaders are more powerful than politicians, terrorists and thugs, and if you doubt me, take a look at the biggest terrorist attacks, the biggest hate crimes and the weirdest shit are religion motivated. This very toxic ideology that preaches “my belief or hell” is terrible, lets not forget the judgement that comes with being different. I am no where near being religious and you should have been able to tell, I used to be, but not anymore, as a result of being coerced to idolized one human because he stands on a pulpit every seven days. The constant threat that comes with using your talent for anything that doesn’t have to do with church, the idea that every question is considered blasphemous just always drives me sick. And let me just add that there are about 4400 religions in the world, and everyone is going to hell in everybody’s religion, so ask yourself, “how sure are you that you are in the right one?” Selah!!
