Religious doctrine.

Sat May 3, 2008, 11:00 AM

Religious doctrines, who needs them?, the weak minded, the young, the confused, the sick, the dying, the innocent, all flexible, all open to suggestion, these are people which religious organizations would commonly target, these are the people who are seeking to believe.

I myself have never met a logical human being who actually "believed"...and by that, i don't mean the common viewpoint of sitting on the proverbial fence, no..i mean actually believe, someone who trusts in the scriptures and verses and practices their teachings.

My belief, logic cannot coexist alongside religion demands that the person strip them selfs of rationality, disregarding scientific based fact and refusing to accept another's viewpoint.

Time and time again ive witnessed during these debates, the believer will continually use the "I have faith" card, and this it seems is a very versatile argument for the believer, covering almost all valid points put to him/her by the skeptic or non believer, other arguments may include...when asked for the proof, the believer will say "look in the mirror" or "look around you" should not need to state why this is inherently flawed, the believer seems to ignore geology or commonly taught aspects of science, instead throwing education aside and flogging his or her belief like a 2008 year old corpse. excuse the pun.

I guess religion itself is a comfort to those without the means of support or stability, its a theoretical backbone and something which assures them ever when the worst comes to bare, it also adds meaning to all life's events, assuring the believer that everything happens for a reason.

I don't need to remind you of how dangerous this is, religion is an addiction much more dangerous than any synthetic compound, as religion spreads, it consumes, it warps...

Well it's been a long long layoff from anything remotely creative..apart from my occasional brief at University, the D70S which served me so well over the years has been put into retirement...i may use it as a backup when needed.

I have had my D200 for a few weeks and i am still learning the ins and outs of manually setting it up, but i must say I'm very impressed with its function and the 3 kings make it much easier!.

It's lovely to be finding my love for photography restored and ill be uploading quite a fair bit over the coming weeks!.
