    if there is one thing religion can offer to people that is worthwhile it is a feeling of being at peace. peace is such a gift that people believe it must be given. so they think of a god the could have offered them the peace. but peace is not given it is freed from inside and sometimes without the freer knowing how they did it.

    [​IMG]Well that's pretty strange. It doesn't make much sense to me because relgion doesn't gaurantee a happy life. Most people believe religion can answer questions to things that they cannot answer. Some seek it for the belief that vengeance and punishment will be brought upon those that have caused them or loved ones harm. Some are in such deep poverty, misery, and hopelessness that they believe that an afterlife will give them a new life that they could never have here.

    it doesn't garentee it of course. but it helps the calming songs the plain building interiors all designed to calm the nerves. some fear the effect of their nerves being calmed so they rebel against this. peace be with you is said often.

    lol you're wrong though, inner peace is the reason only for some people, not all. Some are looking for direction, some are looking for purpose, while still others are looking for spiritual power. The list goes on.

    i didn't say it was the only thing i was intonating that it was the most important thing. being at peace frees you to be the best you can be.

    [​IMG]If that's true than why do many do it through excercise, drugs, alchohol, dancing, medications, and money. All those things calm nerves so why religion? What about just having happy significant other or family?

    the institutions and rituals of religions can help people feel more peaceful or they could get all spiritual doing tai chi. but i'm saying you don't need to believe in the supernatural to find peace.

    well i think all those are difficult to start when you are not at peace, apart from drinking but that doesn't bring peace. people take their kids to church since they are young before they can lose their sense of inner peace.
