Wasn't there a religion in ancient Greece that was all about sex?

The Hellenists had gods to represent everything. The Romans even had a god of door handles!


Himeros.

Janus.

Mankind will never create the perfect anything.

And the perfect religion wouldn't involve anything 'religious' religious implies faith and faith based thinking lacks evidence which is irrational and far from perfect... is even anything perfect? And if anything at all is perfect is it ever even attainable? Certainly not religion.

I think many religions are correct of there being a creator, because we couldn't have gotten here any other way. But at the same time they each have imperfections of what a creator would be like. Now let us try to imagine what a perfect religion would be like...

1. No violence of any kind (even for religious reasons).
2. No contradictions.
3. Agrees with science and reason.
4. Choosing this religion would be based on free will and not based of condemnation in the afterlife.
5. The holy book of this religion could be read clearly without having to make excuses for it.
6. Belief in one God.

If there is ANY religion like this, let me know. What is your opinions on this?

Why is belief in one God a quality? I can understand why you woud like point 1 to 5 (even if I can find flaws in all of them), but the 6th one seems weird to me.

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

You're very prejudiced. Why just one god ?
The fact that you're creatively challenged, and can't image any other way we got here, is rather boring. or is it, you're just ignorant of Chaos Theory ?
An omnipotent deity could have created a race of equal gods whose job it is to make universes for their amusement.

Wellllll, perhaps the above is not exactly true. There is a drummer so skilled he can play every single style of music perfectly. Jazz, samba, Afro Cuban, Big band, pop, fusion.... You name it, he will play it in the recording studio every time. Usually first takes. He may know himself his limitations, but nobody else does.

His name is Vinnie Colaiuta.

RE: In your opinion, will mankind ever invent the perfect religion?
No. All religions rely on false assertions about the nature of the universe and mankind's place in it. It's hard to imagine how anything built on lies can be termed perfect.

My hope is that future generations will find honest and effective ways for people to feel connected to each other and the universe, and that there won't be as much competition for resources, and that they will have figured out how to identify and fix people who are broken in scary and damaging ways (the psychopaths, murderers, etc.). But I'm not confident any of the above is even possible. Sad

Meh. I'm not impressed.
Now if there was a god of door nobs, I might worship that one.
