Religion doesn't need evidence

Religion doesn't need evidence
Religion survives with all its corruption only because its postures itself as a guide on how to become less greedy and lustful and become a more compassionate person. Its the core. If you think that your living a noble/right/caring life, then what religious doctrine is behind it and especially scientific evidence dont matter at all. Because your living a "perfect life".

In conclusion, blind faith is supported in average sane religious person by noble motives, which legitimize the whole doctrine. And I agree with sane believers, compassion is really painful to accept and "sin" is what keeps me going.

If religion doesn't need evidence then I don't need religion.

"sane" is a reach for most people. Innocuous is not the same thing.

There is such a thing as a "sane" believer? Where can I meet one? Wouldn't they be atheist as well if they were "sane"?

Religion needs evidence if it's going to fucking teach you that a zombie man is watching you masturbate.

RE: Religion doesn't need evidence
Why do you keep saying "noble motives"? Why do you keep generalising people?

Most people come to religion through indoctrination, then stay because of fear. That's hardly noble.

I met alot of people who practice religion not so much out of fear but because they believe they are becoming more caring because of it and less egotistical. And because of such perfect improvement they believe that there is a God.

RE: Religion doesn't need evidence
Religion certainly does need evidence if it's going to make evidentiary claims. For instance, there are those religious franchises which claim that Hell is an actual, physical place. All well and good, but if they expect me - or anyone else with functioning cognition - to accept their claim, they'd better be prepared to provide more than a say-so.

I think that religions, such as Catholicism, have influence today because they had influence in the past.  They are like cars traveling down the freeway that have run out of gas.  In time, they will slow down and become less and less relevant.  Religion helps some people cope, such as with death and dying, but more and more "believers" are coming to the conclusion that they don't need organized religion to have those mental comforts.  As an atheist, of course, I have no time nor tolerance for make-believe or fantasy; I enjoy too much living (and someday, dying) in the real world.

Religion doesn't need evidence or rationality or consistency or anything else but a will to believe in something that doesn't have evidence, or rationality or consistency.
