    we live in a modern world where everything is so well documented, and yet still, we cannot agree on what happened last week. It’s hard to fathom we can look back in history over thirty thousand years ago and understand what took place. I’m not disrespecting religion. I think it holds value for society and many individuals across the world, but for me personally I have decided to just believe in a higher power and not conform to any particular religion, because I don’t trust man to tell me about what has transpired in the past.

    Certainty claims bother me too. I also hate the semi mandatory church attendance. Lengthy prayer requests time can be quite annoying too. The rest I pretty much enjoy. Religious people are pretty pleasant people to have as friends.

    I am leaving church in a while but it is only because I know none of it is true. It makes me slightly uncomfortable that I have no clue how we got here and so many people around me know for certain how it happened. I don't like that. That means I am surrounded by liars that lie for some unknown motivation. How can I take them seriously if they are my friends to help me through life? They aren't sane . It makes me vulnerable to bad advice forever.

    .
    as well the recorded history through the ages might also be a motivation behind your choice ... persecution and victimization of the innocent seems their foremost endeavor.

    Believe in whatever the hell you want. It's literally what every single person in the world does.

    Religion is what ancient humans used to describe the world around them before science came along and explained it for real.

    There is no BS story. You are free to believe what makes you feel the best deep inside your soul. Don't get all fussy about what is true and what is not. Just believe lies if it fits your personal narrative. I sent you a PM with the truth.
