Religious Dogma


On the dogmas of religion, as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of their feeble human minds.

  1. If there is no supranatural realm, how does one ascertain the existence of moral principles? Concepts like right and wrong imply a standard that necessarily originates outside of our “feeble human minds”, though we are of course quite capable of apprehending them.

    1. Where do you suggest these moral principles come from?

  2. The only true morality exists among the very young who haven’t been corrupted by older people… This kills me, this argument that GOD created morality. That is simple naive.

  3. The desire to live freely without boundaries of do’s and don’ts is what make humans shy away from religion; in religion you can’t drink alcohol without religion you go drunk to the end of it, in religion you can’t have sex with a woman unless she is your wife, without religion you make love to any woman you can come across, in religion there are certain path to follow, but without religion you design your own path no matter what. Life is beautiful without religion – this is how you think – and thus why the hell should I bother.
    If you think the other way round, your sister or mother or wife is going to a party would you like to hear from her upon her return that she had sex with a man she met in that party and both of them were drunk? what about she become pregnant after a month and she can’t tell who is the father? what if the man who had sex with her has serious sexual disease and contaminated your woman? I you prefer boundaries to protect your loved ones, you should accept religion because it is the framework that provides that safety and security not only for you but also for the community at large.
    God created everything not only morality, ask yourself about morality when you were just a sperm in your dad’s reproductive system.

    1. I gather that you’re a Muslim. If there’s anyone who shouldn’t be preaching about morality, it’s a Muslim. Let me see now… Suicide bombings, marrying nine year-olds, having multiple wives, arranged marriages, forcing women to wear cloth bags, throwing battery acid on women’s faces/cutting off their clitoris, Sunnis mercilessly preying on Shiites simply because their the “wrong” brand of Islam, 911, the Boston bombers, stoning people to death, etc., etc., etc.

      Thank you, but I’ll stay away from Islam’s brand of morality; nothing could be more immoral.
