More like intellectual laziness because God is the easy answer to questions ten times as complicated.

For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:13-14, 22

Like many other passages, God does demand people to kill animals and people at times. People can read this and decide to kill. The belief can cause dangerous thoughts. And of course everyone will say "that's a misinterpretation" as their lame ass excuse for bloodshed. Well, if you add up the many types of copies and versions of The Bible, then even certain Christians also are misinterpreter it all wrong. So don't tell me I'm misinterpreter things, you.... misinterpretors.

Religion isn't a damn theory, it's a story of morals and lessons. And like I also said before, intellectual laziness. I could say those two words all day.

The Bible isn't a reliable resource for science. I mean come on. The Bible preaches that insanity is caused by demons, which would mean that demons are causing my thoughts. Also, it says faith is the cure to illness. We all know that's bullshit sense we have Christians suffering from incurable diseases daily.

According to The Bible it is God who causes rain by opening some windows from heaven.

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. (Genesis 7:11 (They have good slurpees) )

It's also caused those two words I've said before a few times and people to not look for logical answers but moreso believe in idiotic fairy tales.

LOLWAT. Man made out of dirt or man evolve from ape. Which one sounds more batshit crazy? Which one has more evidence to prove the other wrong?

People don't think about other reasons when they have religion there. They don't need any other answer no matter how much better supported or weak it is. That's their answer end of story. It's closed mindedness at its best.

It's not logic and I don't see any clear reason to most of the ideas in religious scripture. The morals and such don't really mean anything special to me. Religion is not realistic. Faith isn't realistic. Faith is instinct. Instinct can be dangerous.

Oh hell no religion doesn't look for the most reasonable explanation. Scientists haven't quit doing what they do looking for answers. They sound more willing to look for different answers and explanations than scriptures that ended a damn long time ago. Science looks for the most reasonable answer to everything, not religion. Religion slaps on some weird thought that I would probably think of if I was on peyote right now. They base things off of paranormal events and magic, which are both bullshit.
