my arguement comes from a few things i have looked into, firstly i dont want to be categorized or ridiculed for my views im sixteen and surely enough have enough time to learn new concepts.

Religion? what is it ? why do we use it? when was religion put into place.
the bible is eudict in many forms
and though i am athiest .. iget ridiculed for it
the same old Q. who do u think made you then?
to me life isnt about finding out answers.. because how am i supposed to commit to a specific religion when they are all identified and researched in different ways.
I have watched christianity been decoded and islam bieng a so called " fake or unadmirable religion.
i dont believe in conspiracy theorys or the concept of them
i dont understand how there is thousand of religions yet all are argued to be statistically true?
Athiesm to me is a natural resource more defined way of life
. Religion in this modern day world causes conflict worldwife
Some people use religion as an escapology from life.
People n todays world call themself religious but dont use religious
ways of life.
The 10 commandents for eg sacred..?
How about the last words of the disciple bieng found under floorboards?
What about muhammed having 11 wives and raped a 9yr old girl?
( ive heard that )
is it all been over exagerated over the years?
why do we use religion?
does it really make life any better ...?

Religion is a myth its only purpose is to explain things we cannot understand and console us about what we fear. People used to believe that the sun had to be pushed across the sky by a god. Now we know that we circle the sun. Science is the antitheses of religion. Religion came first just as ignorance precludes knowledge, then science began to take prevalence. Eventually science will entirely overtake religion and religion will cease to exist.

I think its unfair to use unjust statements
for the simple fact just as we cant 100% prove that religion exsists nor can we 100% prove creationism
and science put us here
My reason for this debate is that people can acknowledge both sides.
saying religion is a "myth" is a hypocritical concept to make
as religion is not overlooked unlike athiesm
and it is fair to say both stand is equal parties in the fact there is no current
100% factual evidence to support this

Lol firstly "categorzing" is a preety useless way in determing someones actions.

&& Secondly some people would look up to me bieng so young and thought provoking
i dont know much"typical" teenage girls that like to question theology and religion.

Im not looking for reassurance if i wanted that i would of wrote something begging for people to agree with me.Think things through before u start to ridicule anyone else... You are really pathetic (n) (:

By the way Meganrihanne1992x, I would categorize you as a typically ignorant teenage girl and ridicule you for your need for the reassurances of others.
