Why do most humans love a religion?

What does Judeo-Christian mean?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 13, 2020:
Judeo-Christian means religions that trace themselves back to Isaac, it used to be those who traced themselves back to Abraham, but since that also includes Islam, it was moved up a generation to take out Hagar and Ishmael.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 11, 2020:
Fear has historically and etymologically always only had two meanings Fear from Old English fær "calamity, sudden danger, peril, sudden attack," from Proto-Germanic *feraz "danger" And Old English færan "to plot against," from Old Norse færa "to taunt." used to mean "to drive away by inducing fear," attested early 15c. Fear of God is quite literally that in the liturgical and theological sense, terror of that which cannot be stood against, capitulation and love for the undeniable overlord demanding appeasement and worship. The churches have always ruled by fear and terror, fear of Hell, fear of the inquisition, fear of the power of the church as representative of god incarnate.

They are both about (or have been about) control and wealth, they are both politically influential, they both hate other religions and gay people, they both think terrifying people in to conversion is a legitimate way to expand their base membership and both believe that women are to blame for everything.

Do you think there's a posibility of extraterrestrial life and why?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 8, 2020:
By pure statistical likelihood it is more likely than not that there is extra terrestrial life in the universe, be it intelligent or not. It is equally likely that there is extra dimensional life (if quantum physics is to be believed) But as yet there is no actual evidence, or none that is widely known, it is therefore best to assume that it is irrelevant to us at this time. However on purely circumstantial evidence alien life is more likely than god(s)

How do you stop swearing?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 7, 2020:
The whole point of a "swear word" is to shock others or release personal frustration. Very few people are actually shocked by "Bad Words" anymore, though some might pretend to be and most understand if you hit your thumb with a hammer you are going to likely shout out profanities, so for the most part swearing has become obsolete. The intent put behind a word or phrase is what can be truly offensive, a bully need not swear to be offensive their words can be honey soaked and reasonable and yet by cadence and emphasis carry so much evil intent and implied threat it can send shivers of disgust and fear up and down your spine. Here is a totally unrelated picture

Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir." "Are there no prisons?" asked Scrooge. "Plenty of prisons," said the gentleman, laying down the pen again. "And the Union **workhouses?**" demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?" "They are. Still," returned the gentleman, "I wish I could say they were not." "The Treadmill and the Poor Law are in full vigour, then?" said Scrooge. "Both very busy, sir." "Oh!

I found this scripture for my wife since I am agnostic and she is a Christian.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 5, 2020:
Afraid not, this idea would contradict numerous biblical passages that "reveal" salvation must be accessed by personal obedience according to most leading theologians, the instead passage "means" that the unbelieving spouse's seed or egg are made pure (sanctified) so that children of a mixed marriage are not tainted at birth anymore than they already are by the sin of Adam and Eve. The passage is not a get out of Hell free card for the "erring" spouse but does save the believing spouse from their uncleanliness. Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament states: “the unbelieving husband or wife is relatively set apart through his or her believing partner, and abiding in the natural union instead of breaking it by leaving, receives a spiritual influence holding the *possibility* of actual conversion” (and therefore salvation) W. E. Vine

Unfortunately men are to ashamed or to terrified of mockery to report or even admit to it in or outside of the work environment (be it military or otherwise) and whether the assault was by a man or a woman. It took me years to admit to anyone I was a victim of spousal abuse (emotional, physical and sexual) by my first wife, once I did I found it was an all to common state of affairs leading to a criminal subculture that is or was hardly ever spoken about publicly, and the more "manly" the environment the more secrecy abounds.

What is spiritualism?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 1, 2020:
Spiritualism is frankly bollocks that I wasted a couple of years of my life on. The cult was originally founded by seamstress sisters Leah, Kate and Maggie Fox, who started it as a scam in 1848 to sell cotton underwear to "the faithful" who they explained needed it in order to be in tune with the "dear departed" ( a trick that was ripped off wholesale by the Mormons a couple of years later) The lie got way out of hand until the "religion" fractured in to two major sects "The spirtualist church" and the Christian Spiritualist." Each faction developed a major denomination Greater World Christian Spiritualism ( The Greater World Spiritualist League and The Greater World Christian Spiritualist Association) who follow the teachings of their prophet Zodiac, who relayed his holy text from beyond the grave to a string of mediums starting with Winifred Moyes and The National Spirtualist Union who follow the seven Principles of eternal progress and do not limit themselves to being Christian but embrace all faiths and oddly, those of no faith but who believe in eternal progress. THe NSU are by far the richer organization gathering most of their wealth from a string of "Colleges" teaching everything from mediumship to aromatherapy, tantric magic and crystal healing, selling endless books and holding weekly services with an entrance fee, and special events called transfiguration services that charge anything up to £50 a ticket (or did when I was there) depending on how famous the Medium is and who the "Philosopher" is philosophers in the NSU are those relaying the sermons on how to be a good spirtualist. Ironically very few denominations of wither branch use seances or table tapping the methods used by the fox sisters, but instead cold read audiences, some put on quite a good show, in the UK in late eighties a (sadly now deceased) Rosicutionist Medium named Mick Foley commanded big audiences large fees and was one of the funniest men I have ever seen, you did not leave his meetings enlightened but you were happier then when you went in. My personal favourite was a woman going by the name of Little Nell, who was in her 90's and had been a medium for over seventy years, she famously told one patron "I have your mother here" The woman cried "My mother is not dead, I just left her at home" "Oh," Said Nell then added. "Still that was over an hour ago wasn't it" Sending the poor congregant screaming in to the night.

LenHazell53 comments on Dec 30, 2019:
For that to happen human actions would have to be subject to totally objective rules of morality, taught and enforced from birth with no room for maneuver in any circumstances whatsoever. Since moral absolutes do not exist and all behaviour is subjective, responsibility and accountability becomes relative to circumstance. One person may fully feel they have taken responsibility for an action while another person may feel that the same subject has unjustifiably totally abnegated themselves from all accountability
Prayer Doesn't Heal People—At Least I Hope Not
LenHazell53 comments on Dec 30, 2019:
If prayer actually worked there would be no world, either consciously or subconsciously everyone would be the subject of another persons prayer for them to fail or die. For every healing prayer their would be a prayer for genocide of one race or another, for every good thing that happened to anyone there would be a prayer for them to suffer as unworthy of that good fortune. For everyone suffering as the answer to a prayer there would be a prayer to kill the god who granted it and the supplicant who asked for it. Prayer is a way for priests to play the odds, if you pray and it is apparently answered, that proves god, if it is not, you're faith was not strong enough, or god said no for purposes of the greater good. Win win win situation.

LenHazell53 comments on Dec 30, 2019:
Avant-Gard was originally a military term, but from 1825 became associated with an early socialist art and lifestyle movement. By the 1920's it had be largely hijacked by the so called "Bright young things" as a form of social rebellion based on the idea of the "Shock of the new" deliberately breaking social norms and introducing "odd" new ideas suck as "diversity, equality both social and racial, welfare and government responsibility." In cinema it lead to the impressionist movement, in art the cubists and the abstract and in photography in the whole photomontage and special effects movement determined to disprove the idea that the camera never lies. After the rise of fascism in Europe the movement faded (or was crushed by Nazi classicism) but reemerged in the 1950s on radio in shows like "round the horn" and "the Goons" in cinema and again in architecture until it was superseded by the "Post Modernist" movement of the 1950's and sixties which was then wrecked by intellectualism in the 1990s who broke it in to Postpostmodernism, brickolage, magic realism and a dozen other meaningless terms.

There are ways to avoid it, but people are so mollycoddled, spoiled and entitled now, they would never be willing to make the sacrifices required to allow the race as a whole to save itself. So yes

What a beautifully mellifluous word, it's almost be worth being one to be called one.

The amount of Razor blades stuck here there and everywhere is seriously worrying
Just want to vent.

"Also Psychology failed him and only god helped him." This is a contradiction in terms

Wow America, a place where a delusional, emotionally unstable PTSD sufferer and religious fanatic is thought to be the ideal person to counsel suicidal youngsters. The stupidity of the American health and education services never fails to simultaneously surprise and horrify me.
Why would a devout follower be bothered by this ?

Someone who does this can only have one reason, it made endanger themselves by doubting and put them in fear of Hell. That or they are fucking loonies or both.

I can't say that this makes me unhappy. Shame it took so long for someone to finally do something about it.
Do you think we'll ever reach a point when atheists are the majority and when?
LenHazell53 comments on Dec 28, 2019:
Despite lots of pessimism expressed here, and I realise it may take longer in America than elsewhere, but I give it three more generations in none theocratic countries before the "Nones" are in the vast majority. In the UK the amount of regular worship attenders is less than 6.3% (English Church Census 2008 ) and most of those are JW's, Mormons, Muslims and Jews. Most non white attendees are over sixty in the mainstream Christian churches or average over 30 in none white Christian churches where child attendance is usually compulsory. Many denominations of Christians CANNOT recruit new clergy to the point where some methodist ministers are covering up to five congregations and Cof E churches are closing and or are being sold at an unprecedented rate. In the Scandiwegian nations it is already far more advanced with less than 2% of the population identifying as Christian or church going. I hope I will live long enough to see it, if the world's societies survives that long.
Assuming you don't attend any religous services on Sunday's, what do you do for fun?

It doesn't it means "try" ื”ื•ื ืื” means deception and I grant you it LOOKS a little like nasa but is pronounced UnaHa
I dislike any organized religion
LenHazell53 comments on Dec 28, 2019:
Welcome, and I agree that any religion that is subject to administrative rule and therefore in that sense organized is pretty much despicable and a large scale con run by immoral money grubbing thieves. Religion itself as the word suggests is a form of mental bondage, tribalism and control, I am glad to be rid of it out of my life.
For ex believers there is always this question of a religion replacement.
LenHazell53 comments on Dec 28, 2019:
I feel the type of former believer you are talking about is of the kind who will in time graduate toward Buddhism or another non deist religious ideology or alternately in to some form of naturalist mysticism. Personally I am of the opinion that rejection of religion or theism or both also will inevitably lead to a rejection of the supernatural and the metaphysical too, it certainly did for me.
This is my first post, and I wondered what it would be about.

I credit Russell as the inspiration for my entire education in later life, his books literally changed the way I think, learn and apply knowledge. He was a truly great man.
Another read word.

Spelled without the French ç a soupcon or soupson is a measure of wine of approximately 5ml to 7.5ml held in a silver tasting spoon sometimes also called a soupson for the purposes of appraisal or in in competitive Oenophilia.
