Christianity: Good or Bad for Mankind?

 
Pro tip : very, very bad.

Edit :

Some additional thoughts.

Mankind is based in reality. Religion is not. In fact most religion is anti-reality, anti-earth, anti-man. (And hence, they are all based on altruism).

Because religion is not grounded in reality, it stands to reason that all religions will have a net-negative effect on mankind. The various forms of Christianity are no exception. Anything else is probably wishful thinking.

You can even see Christians boo Ron Paul for citing the golden rule : something they also claim as their own.

    There’s a reason why they call the age when the church was most powerful “the dark ages.”

    It may be that a character “Jesus Christ” existed or it may be that who/what we know as JC today is a composite of several different characters. It may also be that he or she wanted to reform Jews and raise their consciousness. Who knows? What we do know is that very quickly a New World Order and Globalized agenda formed around his/her so called “teachings”, and the rest is history. A very bloody one.

    “Religion is not. In fact most religion is anti-reality, anti-earth, anti-man. (And hence, they are all based on altruism).”

    What, in your personal opinion, is inherently “anti-earth, anti-man” about altruism?

      Everything.

      And I don’t know if I agree with the word choice of inherently. I think irreversibly, or objectively is more appropriate (and represents the spirit of my response via “everything”).

    Everything is so vague as to mean absolutely nothing at all.

    A quick jump to Merriam-Webster gives the following 2 definitions;

    Definition of ALTRUISM
    1
    : unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others
    2
    : behavior by an animal that is not beneficial to or may be harmful to itself but that benefits others of its species

    I can see how the second is problematic, but not the first.

    I don’t really know what else I want to say other than I love listening to discussions and debates such as this. Some friends and I use to talk about this kind of stuff alot.

    There is no evidence what so ever one way or another. Is there a heaven a better place or a God. As being brought up a Christian with decent morals and going to church i can definitely tell you 100% there is no proof there is or isn’t a god.

    It is up to you weather you believe or not. We on this earth will never know, only when we die and there is no guarantee-evidence that there is a heaven. I still believe in Jesus very much but as far as i can see there is not one scrap of evidence one way or another.

    We all believe in something or someone but unless we have 100% hard core evidence we will never know. Evidence for a god is 0% and no god 0%.

      Ya David, so why are you choosing to “believe” in god? You are positively acting on non-existent information. This is the definition of *irrational*.

      You are acting in open defiance of your best judgement of all available knowledge. This is harmful to life on earth, to happiness, to everything you’ve even known, touched, tasted, seen, heard, or observed in any way.

      Wake up bud.
