Anyway after looking at the class of people I have met throughout my life I realized that most of them are really really creepy.

I feel like if I were to go out on the street and talk to people about how my dog raised the dead, and could walk on water and if you didn't believe it they would suffer in a pool of urine for all eternity, they would lock me up. But for some reason if someone screams that a bearded man with magical powers will send you to an eternal lake of fire for not loving him for sacrificing his son that was really him, so as to atone for a sin at which he allowed, for making us the way we are . . . well it's all good then?

I think Christianity is creepy in the sense that you worship a zombie and then you are supposed to eat and drink the metaphorical flesh and blood of this zombie and then you terrorize other people to turn them into zombies. That to me is also absurd and I feel like we are in the walking dead with the Atheists being the minority and trying to survive in this chaotic world. Except instead of killing the zombies we help them become survivors.

I voted 'kinda'. I find the beliefs uniformly creepy. The people, not necessarily so, but as a consequence of such their beliefs, it is a little.. off-putting...

I'd rather be a damn Hindu.

Hey man, not only does Islam have the 'we're all born sinful' stuff, but it also dictates down to what hand you can use to wipe your arse with (left hand, by the way; as such, never offer your left hand to a muslim). It also dictates some of predestination. It control pretty much all the practitioner does, and says that it could never be any other way.

That is a lot more creepy to me, man.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
