Be Like, Facts, and Fanatic: PEOPLE BE LIKE Q4biddenknowledge I AINT GOTTA DO NOTHING WAITING ON THE RAPTURE I was contacted by yet another religious fanatic on my other page today. I get about 15 to 20 of these per day. I decided to make a post about this because I want to lay out some facts about the world that we live in. A world overrun by ReligiousFanatics. World religions by percentage as of 2012. Christians 33.32% Muslims 21.01% Hindu 13.26% Other Religions 12.48% Buddhists 5.84% No Religion 14.09% 85.91% of the world is religious. Therein lies the problem. More people have died over and religious beliefs than any other reason in the history of this planet. History has proven that religions have promoted slavery, genocide, rape, segregation, race wars, discrimination against women, lack of equal rights, Financial enslavement, and much more. I find that "most" not all, religious people have no sense of purpose in their life. They will go to their place of worship, listen to their pastor or teacher take a couple of notes, drop a few dollars in the collection plate, then go home and maybe read a couple of verses. After that, they kick their feet up and watch the world burn, because according to them, God or Jesus will fix everything. And all they have to do is sit back and do nothing and watch and wait for all of the infidels to go to hell while they’re supposedly raptured into heaven. BTW the " Rapture was added to the bible by JohnDarby in 1830... Anyway, they treat each other like crap. They judge EVERYONE! They are the most unresearched people on the planet. Most Christians have never read the entire bible. How could a person base their entire belief system on 1 book and never read or research it? And that’s a known fact. Most of them have never read anything out of what they have been taught, they have never researched any other ancient texts or information other than what they have been brought into. And they will viciously attack anyone that has a different point of view or even more credible information to present to them. Let me tell you something. Christianity, Islam, etc are the new religions on the block. The information I post dates back in some cases over 50,000 years. I am old age and they are new age. My religion is LOVE.. 4biddenknowledge
