Us humans are a conditioned species in that we seem to be creatures of habit. As a result, We develop urban myths which never seem to go away, In fact, Some urban myths become more and more widespread, Thus more accepted.

For example, For centuries it was believed that going out in the cold or not keeping warm would give you a "cold". Then there is the one about crocodiles in the New York sewers.

Colds (viral or bacterial infections) have absolutely nothing to do with coldness and there has not been one crocodile found in any sewer.

So, How do the oldest and most common urban myths, Religious beliefs stack up?

Following is a just a sample of popular religious misconceptions, The list is endless but feel free to add to it.

<strong>1) God exists: the most common myth of all time. There is no evidence whatsoever as to the existence of God or any other spiritual being.

2) Something had to create such complexity as human life: If "something" created life (and the universe) that something would have to be even more complex and by the same argument would itself have been created. In any case, The irrefutable fact of evolution has completely overturned any possibility of creation.

3) So many people can't be wrong about saying God is real: Many people still believe in witches and fairies but that still doesn't make them real, Nor does any number of people believing there is a God, Make God real.

4) What about all the miracles that have happened: Again these so-called "miracles" are mere urban myths and not one account of a miracle happening has ever been confirmed.

5) I still believe that we have a conscience or a soul that will always live: And that's all it is, A belief. There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that we have a mind, Consciousness or a soul any more than there is actually a "mother nature". These are merely metaphors that have been used so widely that they become accepted as real rather than what they are, Functions of the brain.

6) The Bible is the word of God: Somebody comes out with a bit of comfortable-sounding rhetoric and countless run with it and take the words literally. The Bible is a very vague collection of scriptures written by some 40 different people, None of whom happen to be any of whom the Bible's books are named after. Furthermore, These scriptures were written over a period of 1300 years well over 2000 years ago. They weren't even unearthed until some hundreds of years later and not one account in the Bible can be verified, Save for a few historical accounts. If you think hyperbole and exaggerated tales are rife in today's media, The novelty of the written word in those days was well and truly exploited.

Once more, These are just a token few myths, If you have any to add, Please do so. Similarly, If you wish to query anything about so-called "religious truths" just fire away and I will be happy to set the record straight.
