  • All religions are false

    Cults are defined as a system of religious beliefs and ritual.

    Since all religions practice some sort of ritual. For many, This is prayer, Which is the equivalent of practicing black magic, Where you are trying to conjure up a spirit that will protect you and keep your family safe from harm. Or, You can have Muslims, Who like to turn their bodies to the east while praying. Again, Ridiculous. Or you can have Adventists, Who are so literal about their ridiculous beliefs that they think they have to go to church on Saturdays.

    It's sad that people are so convinced, Having either grown up in the system of beliefs they follow, Or needing some way to feel better about their impending deaths, That this is somehow the kind of living that will make the world make more sense to these people. It does nothing but distract them from reality, Which makes them less healthy mentally and more deluded about what is going on around them. Symbolism is cute and all, But reality is still reality.

  • There is one difference between a cult and a religion.

    The one difference between the two is that in a cult, there is someone at the top of it all who knows it's a scam, but in religion that person is dead. This is unrelated, but ask yourself this; could a god create a boulder so heavy, even they could not see it? If they can, they can't do everything, and if they can't, then they can't do everything.

  • Patronage is irrelevant

    The difference between new cults and religions (established cults) who become virtually institutionalized is the capacity to attract patronage. Rulers grant cults patronage because they are seen as beneficial to an established order - free of taxation, and other duties growth is quick but like all concentrations of power, corruption becomes an issue that impacts religious cults due to past patronage and the ideological adoption of theist concepts into the institutions of state control.

  • Of corse all religion is

    Religions were established to keep people "good' and follow the law and not spread disease. A god fearing citizen was a good citizen. It was a way to keep control of the general population. But the human race has grown past that. We have explanations for natural events that were once considered 'acts of god'. (We have a way to answer any question we have about being the 'only ones" in the universe, like going to mars, terra forming and drilling! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plTRdGF-ycs ). Being a religious person doesn't make you a better person and not believing in any god doesn't make you a bad person either. BUT, YOU SHOULD NEVER STOP PROGRESS IF IT CONTRADICTS WHAT YOU ARE TOLD TO BELIEVE.

  • Does one need relegion to be a decent human being?

    Relegion is just another cult which teaches you that you are different from other fellow humans and that we know the word of "god" better. Why? Why do we need a "god" to tell us how to lead our lives? Can't we just be nice to one another and treat each other with love and respect?

  • Every religion is just pointless all religions try to have a purpose but in reality there's just no point it achieves nothing.

  • Belief overshadows Evidence

    When anyone believes something to the extent of ignoring facts then they are in a cult. Religion asks you believe on faith even when evidence says otherwise. It says that those who do not have faith are being pulled away by evil forces. These things are the very foundation of cults.

  • Power and Cults

    Read The 48 Laws of Power and thought it was interesting that Robert Greene's cult making steps to gain wealth don't steer far from religion today. "People have an overwhelming desire to believe in some­thing. Become the focal point of such desire by offering them a cause, a new faith to follow. Keep your words vague but full of promise; emphasize enthusiasm over ra­tionality and clear thinking. Give your new disciples rit­uals to perform, ask them to make sacrifices on your behalf. In the absence of organized religion and grand causes, your new belief system will bring you untold power." -Robert Greene 48 Laws of Power

  • Cults feed off the unknown and your fears of the unknown.

    The universe is just too big and scary for the religious humans. So, they come to the conclusion that it must all be created and that some god or gods have control of the situation. When in reality the universe is violent and unforgiving. Humanity has just been spoiled to the lack of planet destroying meteors in our very recent existence. Death is also much too frightening for many humans. So, it's easy for cultists promising eternal life if a doctrine is followed to garner a following. Eventually with threats of eternal damnation, death for nonbelief, and societal alienation, over time small cults became popular and grew into major "religions".

  • Elementary Tribalism (and nothing more)

    Blind followers of "faith." Bigots, supremacists and ethnocentric baboons masquerading as the select, the elect and the chosen.

    Clearly conceived to give ones tribe an "advantage" over another.

    I could go on, but why?

    Oh I need more words to post this... One Two Three Four Five Six Seven Eight

  • Depends completely on the behavior of the people in it.

    My wife is catholic, and goes to church to pray for friends and family when they are not well. She never uses her religion maliciously.

    If the majority of the people in a religion, or even a particular church make malicious plans against other groups of people, they are a cult.

    If the people in the religion feel they cannot leave the cult for fear of violence, that is a cult.

    Doesn't matter what they call the religion, or what rules they follow, it matters how they behave towards other people.

    If the people you congregate with help you spiritually to be a better person, a loving person, then that is a religion. A spiritual uplifting for the good of all people, whether they believe what you believe or not.

  • By definition yes!

    By the definition of cult being a organization which its followers are deeply devoted to, so democracy is a cult, diets, and schools are too! Along with your job and etc. the list goes on for a very long time. Honestly I made my point earlier and are just filling word quota

  • Yes, and so are many educational establishments, workplaces,gymnasiums and social networks.

    If you are asked to join, and it costs you money to stay in, and they make it difficult to leave, you are in a cult.
    If you are made to act a certain way, that is against your nature, in order to be accepted by the group, you are in a cult.
    If you are asked to believe certain principles that defy logic (be it resurrection, transubstantiation or even things like climate change, you are in a cult

  • Are all religions cults? No.

    Throughout the history of mankind, it has been natural for people to worship something. First there was animism and that eventually morphed into the major world religions we have today. Some people claim there are about a dozen major religions in the world today while others say that there are hundreds or even thousands of different religious beliefs and practices. After learning the difference between a religion and a cult, you should be able to make the distinction for yourself.

    Traditional Definition of Cult and Religion
    Cult ‘“ a new religious movement that has a limited number of followers and whose practices may or may not be mysterious and possible unsavory.
    Religion ‘“ a method of thought that is meant to give meaning to man’s life by putting him in communion with a higher power through stories, rituals, and beliefs.

    Modern Definition of Cult and Religion
    Cult ‘“ a secretive group that brainwashes its members into engaging in obscene and harmful practices for the sake of a charismatic leader.
    Religion ‘“ see above.

    As you can see, the definition of cults has changed significantly over the past thirty to forty years. This is because some cult leaders, such as Jim Jones, sexually abused his followers. Other cults, such as Aum Shinrikyo, have committed high profile crimes, such as the sarin gas attack that took place in the Tokyo subway.

  • Mainstream religions are not cults.

    All religions are not cults. Mainstream religions are a pathway for spiritual guidance as well as a social resource for those who wish to associate with people of the same religion. Cults are religions in which extremes or social deviance is expected of the members and clergy. They are usually identified very easily.

  • Religion is culture

    A cult is something started by somebody with the motive for profit or deceiving people for their own benefit or gain, or perhaps merely the work of a sociopathic madman capable of manipulating others into his fold, but religion has existed throughout thousands of years of culture and has given us a way to approach morality in life, and whether we believe it to be true or not we should respect the good it has done and not the wars caused in its name.

  • Cults are more fanatic than most religions

    Cults typically have small groups of followers, but their devotion to their object of worship is fervent and pure. Many of the world's larger religions have massive followings, but the loyalty and worship to their respective gods is not as emotional and downright mentally blind as cultists tend to be
