Religion

For someone who's searched deep down for faith, I can honestly say I am in envy of people who understand it and accept it. I wish I could console myself with a notion of an afterlife and heaven or hell.

What sparked this topic is the following video:



I was discussing it with a friend of mine and we both interpreted the general message of the video differently. I thought the general message was that 'religion' is just a nice children's bedtime story we tell our kids to have that sense of security. She thought maybe there is really something to religion if there are so many interpretations of it in numerous cultures. See. Just two people with completely differing ideas. It might be just a "you see what you want to see" but I wanted to open this up for a friendly debate.


How do you feel about religion?
