Perosonaly i don't believe in God or practice any religion i however do believe jesus was a real person as historical records have shown who lived around the time of 2000 years ago and he was killed by crucification . I beleive of jesus he was a nice man that did good by people but he did not carry out mmiracles I just think the stories in the bible are exaggerated over time and time of telling . Kind of like Chinese whispers . Or maybe people became confused . Such as this is one theory i have read
Jesus walked on a spot where there was at the point no water but then say 100yrs later when people where telling the story on the spot had become filled with water by flooding and so people just presumed he had walked on the water
i dont believe religion Mainly because a lot of religious teaching is sexist or homophobic values to people . Now i agree certain branches of christianity are choosing to ignore that teaching but the teaching is still there
It is also the cause of wars across the world . Such as the conflict in isreal is all down to the fact that apparently God promised the jews that land in the bible and so they want the arabs to leave . Also the conflict in the kashmir region to the north of pakistan and india is all down to the fact that there was a religious segregation there leading to one country claiming the land as theirs due to the decision of one religious leader
Peronaly i believe it was a way for people to explain things such as science is for us today the difference being that science can produce hard facts that can be fully explained whereas with the story of creation there are always questions such as who created God and where did all of the materials to produce the world come from . Whereas science can prove the big bang occurred
The teachings where also a great way to keep law and order as people believed if they committed sin they would go to hell
I still respect peoples right to chose a religion and practice that as they wish but what i really don't like is when people try to convert me to a religion or tell me if i don't believe i will go to hell or anything else of that matter .
If you practice a religion that is your personal choice but you have no right telling me i should practice a religion

1. Evolution is not fact. Hence "Evolution Theory" or Darwin's Theory...Its still a theory...Give me one example of Marco Evolution happening today?...Right..there is none. Point taken.
Evoloution dosent just happen overnight but scientists must have proof if they are pretty sure evoloution is fact
