My Opinion Regarding Religion

Hi everybody, my opinion that religion is no more than some form of ideology, like communism, no human can claim that he knows the right god, or the right prophet,every society is fanatic about its ideology or cult, when you discuss with sikhs they think they are absolutely right, the others are wrong, also the hindus, the buddists, the muslims, the christians, sunni muslims, shiite muslims, falung dong in china, confuciacism, maoists, catholics, protestants, orthodox christians, animal worshipers, like cow, donkey, snake etc, even the penis {phalus}, vagina, fire, wind&so on. Everyone believes his own false idea, which is impervious to reason or logic, this fixed false idea is called in one medical science (psychiatry) delusion.
Delusion is very difficult to treat or remove from the mind of the afflicted, even by the most powerful antipsychotic drugs, the argument with the deluded is counterproductive, fruitless, waste of time, so psychiatrists usually advice against arguing with people about their delusions, these people are normal in all other aspects,but when you touch their fixed ideas (delusions) you will discover the illogic or the irrationality in their thinking regarding their delusions, whatever these are, religious, persecutory, grandiose, sexual, anykind of delusion can happen, according to the individual, his upbringing, his environment, the era he lives ,so when you argue with them about anything they are logical, for example if you say that the fire didn't burn, they will say you are liar or illogic, when you say that someone lived more than 200 years they will laugh at you, when you say to them that somebody hit the sea with a stick & divided it into two parts so he can cross it without being drowned, they will say that this is maybe dreams or imaginations, if you say to them that a woman became pregnant without insemenation they will tell you this is impossible, & contradicts science, logic, commonsense, when you tell them the somebody is the son of god, or he is recieving letters from god directley or indirectley through somekind of flying creature, was it auditory visual, or even tactile they will say that you are halucinating. But yet when you argue with them the same ideas in their religious context, they will invert the situation, they will say that you who is lying, halucinating, dreaming.

To be continued next episode.

Thanks.
