For me no. The point of it is beyond me. I understand why people do believe in it, and have no problem with that as long as they don't try stuff it down my throat.

Without religion, the world would be chaos. If we found out aliens were in fact real, it would make religion look really bad in most places. Religion wrong?? = Chaos.
Let's look at the bible. I don't believe in God myself (Or I'm just not completely sure about it yet) but I trust in some of it's ethics as a guide to moral ettiquette. It's just another thing to guilt us and help keep us in line.
Then you have to remember religion has been around a long time, and the less intelligent of our species long ago, who weren't learning or teaching religion, probably did rape each other. If religion never came about, then we probably wouldn't still be around as long as we have, including alot of other circumstances of course, but I'm putting it as simply as possible.

It boils down to what is right and wrong at the end of the day, which can be determined without the use of a book.
It's not like because religion says rape is bad, if there was no religion we'd all rape each other. Good morals are good morals. You either have them or you dont.
If aliens do exist (the chances of us being the only life form(s) in the universe is very slim- NO SHIT, WHOLE OTHER TOPIC THOUGH.) I can see all the religous nuts going absolutely insane. Now that would be fucking funny.
As long as they came nowhere near me that is!

</rant> said:Maybe, but they were probably more worried about getting raped by Dinosaurs. Wait, we didn't evolve we were placed here. Or were we?
well i alway liked your thoughts !!!HavokChylde said:Ok, so I guess in the end 1ct-on!, you need religion, but you also need a dirty woman. Like the Pink Floyd song.
