Religion or Contrast? (Your opinion)

Religion or Contrast? (Your opinion)
To everyone on this site who loves a good argument and are wanting desperately to have their say, here's a little post for us to pick at.

This is currently my Bio on this site and two paragraphs from by "about me" on my blogspot and my FaceBook:

Quote:Me?
Well.. I'm basically living a life where I try my best and will not stop. I prefer things to be attempted at the highest for best result no matter how allegedly insignificant. That goes for everything.

For me,
living life to the fullest means exploring your potential, inquiring that which you have not yet experienced. Understanding and acquiring new perspectives, indulging the remuneration within.
You have your life ahead of you,
it’s your choice how you live it.
Me?
I’m just beginning it.

Now which is my best option if I wish to live such a life? Religion, such as Christianity, or Secular Humanism, Agnosticism, or Atheism?

Better yet, judging by my quote, which do I obviously deem just? (in your opinion)
Everyone's opinion is as valuable as indeed, the other's, but that doesn't mean theirs is the most justifiable.

Seems a rhetorical question given your stated belief. Christianity is of course the best way to achieve a full life. No other system really addresses it.

How so? How does secular humanism not address it?

Is atheism really considered to be a religion?

Quote:re⋅li⋅gion  /rɪˈlɪdʒən/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [ri-lij-uhn] Show IPA
Use religion in a Sentence
See web results for religion
See images of religion
–noun 1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion.

We don't have rituals do we? (honest question also)
We have a specific set of non-beliefs more so, we don't believe.
Are we considered to be a religion or just have no religion. I like no religion more... Big Grin

Secular humanism just avoids it. It just hangs it's hat on whatever happens to be fashionable & sod justice/ what's right or wrong. It's a vote for the 'I don't give a monkeys' party Big Grin

And christianity is a stagnating 2000 year religion that cannot move with the times because it is a permanent text.

'Sod justice and right and wrong' wtf.

'Secular humanism expouses reason, ethics and justice' according to wikipedia. In fact it seems to differ from Frdos view of christianity only by excluding the supernatural element.

Note I said Frodos view of christianity which has about 7 members.

Only you think your drivel has a "point."


It does not.

Yeah right DBP your attempt to marginalise me is revealing of your own insecurity. It's secular humanism that says "sod right and wrong, we're gonna do what's fashionable".

Biblical truth got to be so after hundreds of years of deliberation and fine honing. It hasn't been bettered. That doesn't mean you get to ignorantly dismiss it, although people with that attitude just destroy stuff like it.

"There is no god for your groveling." ...sounds like a very definite statement Minimalist. Put's you in the nutty fringe I think. But respect for being so bold.
