Well, I didn't want to join this discussion, but I have to ask: do you really think that religion is such a good reason to die??TT, I think you would be suprised at the number of people, of ALL religions who would die for their faith.
TT, would YOU have the guts to do it? Would you choose death over being forced to follow a religion that you did not believe in, or knew was riddled with error?
There were many martyrs in the Christian church who believed like this.
I have to agree with stratoplayer:
For me all religions can be dangerous. I'm not saying that all religions are dangerous equally in the same time, but they can be! MANY people are able to follow what somebody (clergymen ) say without reasonable thinking of it...and this is, in my opinion, much more dangerous than whatever else...do something without thinking of it, when sufficient reason is that the Bible (the Pope, whoever) says that this is right!I am of the view, please do not take it personally and I mean no harm whatsoever, that people look to religion in order to avoid doing something or facing away from the truth like the argument, "If God wills is" or "It was what God wanted" I seriously think those people take refuge in that because they don't want to face reality.
By the way, what do you think about this:
