    I am not to be honest, I may be most critical of islam, but I am not personally a fan of the bible or torah.

    Too many dam rules, and confusion :lol:

    what say you?

    I'm not a fan of organized religion, though that doesn't mean I don't have time for the holy books. All organized religions are man-made constructs, and impose their own interpretations of the bible, koran, tora, etc., often to their own convenience. You can be religious without going to a place of worship.

    I'm not a fan of the dogma of the Catholic religion, but I am a fan of the ten commandments.

    Religion is for brainless morons who can't make up their own mind and have to be told what to think... before the hat's passed for their cash.

    Well then by your own admission.

    You are most highly qualified to join any organized religion.

    And especially the cult based ones would fit your mentality perfectly. :razz:

    Not. Like all man-made ventures, it is corrupt.
