The final point is a bit short. Simply put, a good portion of the population turn to religion as an answer to their fuck ups in life. Either from drug addiction to rape or murder, in those times of sadness the idea of forgiveness I assume would be enticing.
To hit on some other notes before I go and work out, it is odd that people put so much respect into God.
I have no evidence to refute his or her existence so for all I know there is a big guy in the sky.
What I do have proof over is the fact that he is a cunt.
From the famine to war, the fact that he is an incompetent asshole is unequivocally factual.
Many like to retort by saying that these are the actions of humans, not God, and to that I say he is still nowhere near a positive character for letting all of that shit happen in the first place.
He is an individual who can be classified as indifferent to our, yours, or my suffering, and nothing more.
I could go into the fucked up shit regarding race and its use in religion but that would be a totally different can of worms.
Hope I didn't disappoint, man.
Fuck, I'm hungry.

The third point I listed is ignorance and this opinion of mine will most likely be used to label me as a fedora tipping neckbeard, but fuck it, here we go.
From attempted debate over religion, be it between those my age or the parents of those my age, I have seen that there is a very interesting, variably hidden shade of ignorance among every religious viewpoint and disposition.
Nobody likes to question what they believe in. Nobody likes thinking about whether or not God is a fucking asshole or how the concept of eternity doesn't really work.
That's a fun, violently depressing subject to think about by the way.
The idea of eternal happiness or torture just does not work. We would break down over millenniums into creatures so void of human emotion or feeling that heaven would eventually become hell.
Shit, I couldn't imagine spending eternity around anyone, even my theoretical soul mate. After millions and millions of years I could not see the logic in not breaking down on a psychological level.
Oh, the religious usually pull a cop out when this is brought up, saying something along the lines of "But we can't understand the concept of God" or "Heaven and Hell are too complicated for us." Personally, I would like to think that, upon death, our brain gives us what would realistically be a second but what would feel like a great deal of time just to do the kind of shit we always wanted. Maybe like a lucid dream of some sort for a little while before turning the lights off. Then again, we are merely animals. But maybe animals experience the same short moment of bliss before death as well. I haven't looked into it.
To get back on topic, the religious seem to reside in ignorance as almost a defense mechanism against the less friendly outlooks such as my cheery belief that there is no point in anything. Like I said, I may or may not be autistic so let me go ahead and state that the previous sentence was sarcastic.

The continuation of religion is spread by means of lack in resistance, weakness, ignorance, or attempted "salvation."
Let me address each of these points individually.
This might also span a couple more posts so bare with me.
Dude, I fucked up somewhere pretty hard.
From most my age, those who associate themselves with a religious belief have withheld said connection since childhood. In that I see a definitive use of brainwash. This child is told by the two people he cares most for, who are his or her personal God throughout their early, developmental years, is given, among clothing, food, fun, and shelter, the concept of religion and the ideology of heaven, hell, or whatever afterlife their spiritual disposition just so happens to follow.
This is brainwash. Of course you are going to do what your parents say when they hold such significance to you and your livelihood.
And when you are of age to have the brain power to question your parents actions you are so warped by the years of church, prayer, and belief of sin to think any differently.
And this has been the cycle of religious spread since religion existed.
To continue, "weakness" brings others by force into the welcoming hands of God as missionary work uses the frailty of impoverished nations to spread the ever healing words among the unimaginably attractive installations of hospitals and schools. Much like children, starving third-worlders will undoubtedly be more open to a religion that is being fed to them along with the other transported aid.
That one bothers me a lot, just as much as the brainwashing. I guess one of the reasons I haven't killed myself yet is that I would like to address this on a larger scale.
Missionary work is a morally questionable act. Instead of simply providing relief to royally fucked up parts of the world, it is found logical, and is respected by a large majority, to push God's word just as much as to build a house.
I'll go ahead and make another post to talk some more

I have always, and remain to be, the one to attempt conversation. Problem is, I have no means to relate with the entirety of those I converse with.
This is where I start even another string of conscious on how I don't find much interest in what people on most any age spectrum have to talk about.
Maybe this proves me to be even more autistic than originally believed. The mentioned "grinding hour" that concluded the first post was spent mostly in a state of anger and confusion, something that those with Autism, specifically Asperger's deal with.
I just fail to grasp the importance of what we are talking about. Be it either my mom or my classmates, I have never truly felt the IMPORTANCE of the conversation.
Why are we talking about popular culture? What impact does this have on us?
Why are we finding drama in things that can be easily solved? (That is directed towards my mom just as much as it is teenage girls)
I just lack the ability to care about the pointless things. And that might spark a sense of narcissism so let me add that I don't think these conversations are weak because they aren't coming from me, I just find no point in talking about things that can either be fixed or don't effect one another.
And here is where I start tying things together.
I see that this doesn't substantially change as one ages. As much as teenagers are disrespected and looked down upon for being mindless and void of personality, those twice and three times my age would face the equivalent accusation, save for the social stigma that they are right and I am wrong.
This spans far beyond conversation of mindless mediums of media, sick alliteration I know.
Our whole concept of meaning is based around standards that nobody has ever really examined. Our whole purpose for living, if looked at on an objective, biological scale, is to make more of us and die.
And to hop awkwardly into religion, the topic I should have probably started with, let me make one more post.

Really? Man, that's nice to hear. I could talk about anything, really.
This is about the fourth time I have retyped this sentence as I am now a bit "on the spot," so bare with me if I turn out to be shittier than you anticipated.
I think the current idea in my pessimistic head that can be most fluently transcribed as of right now is "adulthood" and what I have been seeing as of late.
That being an infuriating ride of hypocrisy and alienation.
Oh, I'm 17 by the way. Now, I can use that statement possibly to my advantage as you might suddenly, upon reading that, feel a slight feeling of intellectual superiority only on the basis of age. And that is what I am talking about.
We put too much importance into the age of an individual. Now, to preface this opinion, I guess I should go ahead and establish myself as a teenager outside the norm of other teenagers, and more so the younger populace as a whole.
I have never really been able to explain myself in any regard easily. I find saying I am the "most high-functioning autistic individual you'll ever meet" to be relatively accurate.
I don't like white noise and stacking cans isn't my cup of tea, but in terms of being socially retarded I fit the bill surprisingly well.
Not to say I am one of those absolutely horrified of public or personal confrontation. I don't know what image is morphing in your head of me, and with what I have just written being relatively fresh, one would naturally assume me to be akin with all the other, creepily quiet kids you saw in school. My ability to write presumably well doesn't seem to help, admittedly.
My social interaction with people could best be described as a fighting struggle until I give up out of a feeling of uselessness.
I don't know whether or not you want me to shut up but I could really use an outlet as the last hour has been surprisingly grinding. I'm just gonna pour out my thoughts and try to personally clean things out.
