What are some of the stupidest suggestions by religions?
Now don't get overwhelmed, I know there's a lot, but name the top ones in your book.

First of all I think the stupidest thing to come out of religion is this sort of fear and hatred towards modern medicine. Fundamentalist Christians refuse to let their child be vaccinated, Jehovas Witness refuse to give or receive blood transfusions, etc etc.

It all leads back to the fact that a lot of these people want to die, if they die then they're in "heaven" with their creator. It's dangerous thinking and to me, it's incredibly stupid.

I think LIMBO was quite stupid. A place between real hell and heaven. It was a place where you would temporarily go for minor sins. Unbaptised babies would go there too. You could pay peopole to pray fore you, so you don't have to stay there to long. Pure Mafia! In 1999 it was decided by pope JPII that there is no such place. I wondered what happened with all the souls who where there at the moment. *POOF?* Smile

Maybe another pope will decide that there is no hell, and the another will decide there is no heaven lol. After all the Catholic church were the first christians to propogate the idea of hell as a scare tactic Big Grin

Where to begin?
The Jehovah's witness blood thing.
Circumcisions.
Discrimination of women.

First three that came to mind. I'm sure there are more and "better" ones.

I want to rip off your superstitions and make passionate sense to you

That's a good one. How about the earth is 6000-10000 years old? Theres also my favorite: Atheists are immoral, dishonest and lazy people who should not be trusted.

The_Observer, we both know that common sense isn't as common as we would like it to be.
