Here is a short summary of the reasons why I am interested in religion(s).
1/ I have a strong feeling of being lied to for many years, and now I think it is time for the truth to be known.
2/ Religion is everywhere but achieves nothing - but you might not notice.
3/ Someone needs to speak about truth, reason and evidence. Why not me?
4/ The bible is simply (and obviously) scientifically unsupportable. If you disagree then I'm sure that I will have an opposing opinion, and you know that I welcome a good discussion in the comments.
5/ Not making sense. It never did, even as a pre-teenager and it still doesn't. Be honest - does it?
6/ Disappointment - speaking in tongues and healing really don't cut the mustard do they? Such exciting ideas are simply not true.
7/ Defence by spouting nonsense - this is the technique adopted by theologians around the world.
Let's face it - religion is interesting for people who have been taught it, but only in the same way that schizophrenia is interesting to people who have been taught psychology!
