Yeah but the posts made it to the frontpage and everyone was like "hurr durr this explains everything" so I wanted to put it here so it reaches more people. I think it would've been better to add some funny picture or something but I believe that even though most probably I'll be thumbed down, people will read it.

Still, I will also discuss it in that section, thank you.

The truth is both of these "people" and stories are based on fiction events, most of which do in fact line up with the rotation of the Earth, change of seasons, etc. Neither of these "people" were actually born, and if there was a prophet like Jesus who had existed he certainly wasn't born of a virgin, but alas, what do I know, I'm only seeking the truth.

Horus story isn't. check the myths, that's my point. As to whether they existed or not, who knows? Legends are based on fact. Maybe someone with a very distinct point of view was born and people did their best to interpret them and when they were admired by everyone else (that's what tends to happen, just look at Chuck Norris) they took away their humanity and rearranged everything to make them appear gods. We don't know this but that's my point, we don't know.

Back in the days they didn't have proper justice systems. Many would argue that we still don't, but they wanted a way to get people to follow rules, they gave them something to shape their morals, to make them believe what they wanted them to believe and to give them fear of consequence even after death. If you choose to base your morals off of religion and it makes you a good person good for you, however if you think each word should be taken as literal you may be a fool. The way I see it, I don't believe in roughly 2800 gods, someone who says they believe in one doesn't believe in 2799, also there's a reason we call gods of the past "mythology" despite that being what they actually believed.

A lot of things can be turned into weapons of control. Take science for example, in some cases it has been manipulated by people with money or misinterpreting the information so that it promotes certain views that go with the interest of companies, government, etc. What if there was some kind of message given to humanity and the people in power changed it and used it for their own benefit? Like television becoming a weapon of manipulation of perception instead of being for entertainment or connection

Now, we all scratch a tiny bit from the big TRUTH. If there was a god or something else, I'd expect it to be most natural that there are 2800 versions if it. Even more would be natural. Also, a lot of them have the same message, love yourself, love your brothers, forgive.

I personally believe in truth and consciousness. To think of a humanized God, to me, it's ridiculous. But I do believe the experience-r is the same in a bird, in a tree and in you and me. The personality construct, which is of our own creation is just an illusion.

There will never be a day where the world believes the same thing, though it's probably for the best. Also the word "truth" is really an interpretation of beliefs; math and science are man made tools, yes, we make the numbers work consistently to explain things, but in the end we made up those numbers and figures and equations. That's why my belief system is based on respect, treating everyone with equality, and never making someone else's life harder or less valuable. The world needs religion, because for every extremist who causes war because of it, there are at least ten other people who are good people because of the religion they believe.

No. The world doesn't need religion. You said so yourself, some people are good just in fear of the reprisal or expecting some reward because of it. I think if the mind and body are treated well, and one is given respect, love and a sense of worth in a community, we'd be in harmony with ourselves and each other.

Religion sometimes is like love given through a middle man. We don't need him.
