Scientologists.

It really is a CULTure.

EDIT: Some tribes in South America have a tradition in which upon becoming of age, a man must turn the end of his penis inside-out.

That cult shown in Faces of Death. They dissected a man and ate one of his organs (liver possibly, I don't know) raw as a group and had sex over his dead body.

Not hollywood either.

Nah I just hate doing the "fixed" thing, but I couldn't help myself, I wouldn't apologise for saying that most organised religion consists of a bunch of backwards rituals fueled by confused rednecks (I have come to the conclusion that rednecks have always exist, their current form is just the common redneck we all know and love the hairstyles of).

Yeah.

A kid at school was discussing Scientology today and I added:

"Yeah, that religion is crazy."

Then he's like, "yeah, it's really just a big, false money scam. Nothing they teach is true...."

"At which point I added, "Well hell, every religion on this Earth is like that, some just more than others..."

At which point he bursts out "Nu UH!!! Teh Jezzzusss Iz R3AlZ!!!!"

I just walked away.

Well it makes sense in a scientific manner, I mean there was nothing, which is 1/infinity, and it became something i.e. infinitiy/1.
So the point of this thread is that different people are different.

Both atheism and theism are equally irrational, in my opinion.

I propose

IGNEUSPENTHEISM!!!!

That's not really how it works, and it's not a belief it's a theory. (which is different than a hypothesis, because it agrees with observation)

Yes, and in my small opinion limits debates and dilutes them by all being in one thread (at times).

in bolivia, the natives celebrate christmas (or the winter solstice i suppose) by building altars of various things, then the high priest guy will place a llama fetus on the altar and the entire thing will be burned as a sacrifice to the gods.

Just making sure dude, I wish this thread would get away from religion though, unless you dudes think that your only culture is your religion.
IMO Music has made a whole lot of cultures, and definately weird ones, seen any metalheads recently?!

How else do you think people shape beliefs on something that is built on a subjective basis? I myself get frustrated when people state their beliefs on something subjective as objective and things mindlessly go back and forth with the same claims, but a polite and (semi) progressive argument can be quite different.


I meant wars more than chatter.

I couldn't agree more! I'm sure both parts of Ireland are equally awesome and unique.
