So, I recently started dating a christian girl who identifies herself as christian because of her upbringing and her family, but she is by no means fanatically religious in any way. Aside from believing in God, she doesn't believe any of the christian stories that don't make sense. She accepts anything that has been scientifically proven. It's amazing that i'm even dating her. I'm the type of person who would write people off for being christian, but this girl is a real thinker. She thinks for herself and forms her own opinions on practically everything. Anything illogical about the christian religion, she abandons. But because she's christian, I just keep thinking about the whole religious situation in the world, and I don't understand why everybody is christian. Why is a massive portion of America christians? Why did this happen? At the end of Religious, Bill Maher points out that if you belonged to any sort of social group that was involved in as much destruction, stupidity and lunacy as religion has been, you would resign in protest. What is the deal with christianity? Why do honest, loving, wonderful people identify themselves with a group that has been responsible for acts of sheer lunacy and the deaths of millions throughout history?
