RE: Ecclesiastes 1:18
It could be interpreted as " the more you know the more you know you don't know, and that can be depressing"




Maybe.

Maybe.

Einstein and Lawrence Krauss prove the otherwise. They are extremely happy there are things which can be discovered.

If god is on her side whats up with depression?

I used to have very bad depression, I was even on medication for it. Once I ditched religion I was able to stop taking meds, and I just went uphill from there. I have never been happier

Where is the connection between religion and meds?

I just saw that one of my Christian facebook friends posted this as their status. It made me face palm so I thought I should share it.

This is absolute truth.

It is along the lines of 'Mo money Mo problems.'

Here solomon is telling us the more we know the more we are inturn responsiable for and ultimatly the more problems we will have as a result. the otherside of this intelectually is, that with greater awareness comes a greater sense of futility. which is probably why so man philosphers were/are depressed or even commit suicide.

The Index: A/S/K Ask Seek Knock as outlined by Luke 11:5-13
Ot Old testament
Nt New testament
H/S Holy Spirit

If you want to ask me a question feel free to Pm me or E/M me. I will not speak of it to anyone.

There isn't one. If you have religion you shouldn't even need them, your religion should be enough.

But you said you were able to stop taking meds once you dropped your religion so you imply there is a connection Wink

A few years ago I would have argued religion probably could have really helped. Glad things have gone uphill. I used to be pretty scared to admit to things like agnosticism or any doubt at all. Once I acknowledged my atheism though, I was pretty surprised at how liberated and 'without fear' I felt.

The religion of one age, is the literary entertainment of the next.

I think that once I realized I was happier without religion, I was able to realize I didn't need them.

Its what all religions ultimately teach... Ignorance.

Don't think, don't question, don't wonder, don't discover... Just obey.
