religon, which ever it may be is made up by corrupt men of long ago. now over time, expressing theses books have been changing to bring in individual beliefs. quote:

"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction".

there are no such things as god, religion i my view hides prejudicm, even from long ago. my value is "when i do good, i feel good, when i do bad, i feel bad, thats my religion"

according to the bible, did not jesus say not to erect places of worship in behalf of him? bejamin franklin quotes nicely " Lighthouses are more helpful than churches" and he'll be right.

in conlusion, we have enough religion to make us hate but not enough to love one another.
