    I don't advocate banning religions.

    You said that you are always prepared to make proper decissions and/or defend yourself. What do you mean?

    People use narcotics on "save" settings. Those are settings where they don't make major decisions in their life.

    I assume you meant "safe" settings. I don't believe such things exist. I find life tends to throw the worst at you when you are least prepared of ready to handle it.

    Some situations may be better or worse than others but no time or place can ever be 100% secure. Since I believe it is our own personal responsibility to provide for our protection, that means always being prepared and ready as much as possible. Physically and Mentally.

    Agreed. We should also give them a month of survival courses then dump them in the woods for two weeks of "Naked and Afraid" experience followed by a two year stint in the military, Peace Corps or some other group sending them to Third World shitholes. Those that pass become voting citizens. Those that don't, can't vote.

    It is said that the otoman contemplate decisssions twice. Once when drunk and once when sober.

    They made better decisions both.

    The reason why I think people should try some safe narcotics, ganja, lsd, dmt, xtc, is because good ideas do not need to be enforced. Good ideas need only to be tried.

    Religions are bad ideas. No body would be religious if there are no "forcing". Religions make people vote for bad politicians. Religions make people donate to bigot organization.

    And yet it's okay to be religious.

    It's okay to vote while under religious influence.

    People think it's humans' right.

    But it's not okay to even TRY ganja?

    Well, guess what buddy. If every body tries, then ganja users will be majority and religious people will be less.

    Actually trying some narcotics will make you question your beliefs, including religions, very quickly. You will see how life looks very different from what you normally see.

    And that's why i want people to try some. Not the dangerous one of course. The safe ones.

    I see no use for Religion OR Drugs. Both cloud the mind from the true and correct guide to human life - Morality.

    To question ones beliefs is to have no beliefs. To have no beliefs is to have no Morals. To have no Morals is to have no point in living.

    Your morals are corporal punishment for women. That implies a brain more diseased, and less inclined to make safe and sound decisions than an actual sober one, or one high on marijuana. Yours is impaired, genetically.

    My neurologists and therapists over the years would disagree with you, GT.
