Religion. Faith. These are two words that annoy me.
Yes, it's possible to use one or both of these, in moderation, and still remain a cool, objective, self-aware, critical thinker.
But it gets a lot less likely.
Religion and Faith are like crack cocaine and meth. It might be possible to use a little of these substances to no harmful effect but the fact is, a lot of people end up strung out on them, complete fucking mushbrains and, given that there are no real tangible benefits, I don't, personally, see the point of taking the risk.
Why fuck around with something as potentially brain damaging as religion? What exactly is the benefit that makes you think the risk is justified? What's so great about occasionally believing in the tooth fairy?
Don't bother answering that. I'm really not that interested. Just trying to clarify my position - that's what I wonder about.
