I am a kind of person who wants logic in everything, when i watch a movie, i want that movie to be perfect without any factual errors, once i find a small mistake in the plot, which i always do, i lose interest in the whole movie, i think this aspect of me explains the most about a person who i am. According to me, all the religions are just a fairytale, there is no logic in any religion and moreover all the religions are based in the geographical regions they are most prevalent today, christianity in Europe and America, islam in the middle east, hindhusim in Indian sub-continent, etc, the point is that, all religions have the common belief that "god" is creator of the universe and etc,etc then why is that religion famous only in that specific region ?, "god" had the power to create the universe, but he hadn't enough power to spread his "truth" to all parts of the same universe?, that sounds real silly!!, and people defend this by saying other religions are the work of the devil !!!! but that's of course is the worst-case scenario, to me people "talking-in-tongues" or getting "revelations" from god is a mental disorder called "schizophrenia", "holy"-books are the work of a great fiction writer who has some knowledge about his surroundings, miracles are co-incidents and superstitions are shit.
Many religious people think that advancement in technology ruined the god in people, tv, internet,education and even metal music ruined the spiritual-side of a person, according to most of them religion makes a man self-disciplined, good natured and etc...... that's really funny!, i once saw a quote somewhere which went something like this "how good is a deed done in the fear of god rather than self belief ?", in fact i feel atheists are more disciplined, cos if you do some thing wrong, a religious guy makes a confession or drops some money in the hundi and surprise! surprise!! all yours sins have been washed away!, but for an atheist his conscious will kill him.
Many people turn into atheists, due to various reasons, death of a person, huge financial losses, internet or reading books of various atheists etc, but not me, i didn't turn into an atheist. Even Periyar was a theist until a certain incident of insult happened to him, but not me, i never learned it from anyone, i was an atheist as early as 10 years of age.
Religion is basically a waste of money, time and mental peace, trying to find things for yourself rather than blindly believing in someone can give a lot of peace, for once, Mahatma Gandhi said "It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence", he said to his followers that to be a non-violent person he/she needn't be a gandhi follower but the essence of non-violence must be in your hearts, he wanted his people to challenge conventions rather that meekly accepting the British raj , all i want to say is the same thing just challenge everything and discover rather than believing in fairy tales told to you.
