Why do people still believe religious myths?
Isn’t it about time people wise up, its very obvious that the bible and all other religious books were based upon the movement of the stars and the sun passing through the zodiac during the year? And those “jesus” fish people put on their cars TRULY represent the age of Pisces. Research the winter solstice because people have celebrated it ALOT longer than christianity has been around. jesus freaks.

    Why not? Are you so insecure in your beliefs that you must critisize others who are firm?

    Humans are programmed to believe things with just the tiniest confirmation.

    For much of our evolutionary history, if you saw something that looked somewhat like a face in the jungle it’s better to believe it’s a predator. Even if you are wrong 99% of the time, being right that 1% keeps you alive.

    Even though we are far removed from that environment, our bodies (including our minds) are built for that environment. Today, you are taught religion. All you need is one good thing to happen in your life and you have your “confirmation”.

    It doesn’t matter that the “confirmation” was just chance or your own hard work. It just feels right. Which means humans will be stuck with religion for a very long time to come.

    Because some of those myths are still inspiring today. Not all religions take their myths literally; I see the myths of my religion as symbolic stories that impart wisdom. Many of those myths gave those constellations their names; I know a lot about the astrological correlations behind them.

    Merry Solstice!
