Religion, Faith, and Spirituality : Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Why should celebrate Easter or Christmas and whatever holiday is out there separately?

Don't you think it will be a good idea no matter if you're catholic or orthodox, to celebrate together?

It's like we play with this holidays, is not about faith anymore, you know?

But then again, the Russian orthodox church is against it!

Well, this is a tomb. I'll make them feel at home

You both are stupid.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Wrong. And say it to my face next time.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

2 days off are better than one.

No Croft post will ever be worthy of serious consideration because Croft himself is unworthy of consideration.

Oh, hey. Didn't see you there. Make yourself useful. Shine my shoes.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

I don't respond normally to your posts for a variety of reasons but I can answer this.

Why would anyone want to celebrate the birth of Christ and the Crucifixion/Resurrection at the same time?

"Hey kids! Let's open presents from Santa Bunny and enjoy the story of how the Romans murdered Jesus to placate the Pharisees."

"In our sermon today for Christmaseaster, we turn to the Book of Luke to discuss the birth of our Lord and Savior and how Pontius Pilate washed his hands of him 33 years later."

"Don't forget to put the bunny on top of the tree!"

"Wow, look at all the eggs I got in my stocking this year!!!"

Come on dude…

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Because it's practically the same thing 😒

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

No, not really. Having participated in many in my lifetime, I can say the feeling of the two days is very different. Go ask a Twice-a-Year Christian if you don't believe me.

I would be shocked if he gave you a reasonable answer… or what he thinks is one.
I doubt that he even has an understanding of what religion is in some people's lives. He certainly has no understanding of these holidays!

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Look who's talking? Have you even researched on what catholics and orthodox have in common? I reckon you didn't, you just like to throw your hateful shit instead of researching and than came with good response 🙄

I'm surprised that someone at your age knows nothing about the history of religions yet

Well, this is a tomb. I'll make them feel at home

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

I was brought up Catholic. I went to Catholic school. I was taught by priests and nuns. I went to Mass, not only each Sunday, but each weekday as well. My family had friends of various religions.
I may not be a scholar, but I can say that I have a reasonable understanding of these things.

YOU DO NOT CONSOLIDATE RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS, YOU MORON!!!

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Nah, even though I'm an atheist I like being different. And historically the Greeks were the first Christians so we Orthodox set the holiday, not Rome.

This idea that the whole world must do everything together is a bunch of misguided globalism. Differences are what make life interesting.

You're just giving in to the power of the Vatican if you don't celebrate Orthodox Easter in favor of Catholic Easter. Everything is political. Don't be a fool.

It's exactly what the Russian orthodox church says! Are you a commie 🤔

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

The Russian Orthodox and the Romanian Orthodox are offshoots of the Greek Orthodox. We're all the same.

Can't you ever just have love for your Orthodox brethren? I don't believe in god but the Orthodox Church is the original. And they're beautiful inside.

Well said, PC! As an agnostic, and an anti-globalist, I agree.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

I celebrate both. My family does the regular so all the in-laws and non-Orthodox family members can come. But we have a smaller Orthodox Easter celebration.

You're agnostic but I'm gonna bet you celebrate Easter. Unless your family is Jewish, then it's Passover.

No, not really. To me Easter Sunday is just Sunday.

I figured you would ask that next. I do only because my family does.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Okay, that's why I celebrate Easter as well. There's a great dinner. And there's two dinners if you celebrate Orthodox Easter. Plus there's the Easter Bunny and baskets for the kids. Lol.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..



Differences when it comes to individual being, not individual ideology regarding religious beliefs that still get forced onto EVERYONE. That is what creates all the conflict and confusion, 'deluded' fragmentation of mind.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

I'm an atheist of course but I don't see religion as some malevolent evil. Its just man's attempt to explain the universe beyond known science.

I don't understand your point. The Orthodox Church is really the descendant of the first Christians, who were Greek, listed in the New Testament - Corinthians, Thessalonians, Ephesians et al. It's structurally important even if you don't accept the religious beliefs.

Its just man's attempt to explain the universe beyond known science.
Yet it doesn't explain with logic, reason or rationality. It is born of an archaic and erroneous mindset.

You commented about differences and taking a steer towards Christianity being founded by the Greek Orthodox. That is irrelevant to what I commented on about the ideal of religion. ALL religion portrays differences behind the belief and conflates the actuality of what is. There is NO religion.

I am not undermining the culture of what religion can represent historically, just not taking a prideful notion behind it, (that is impossible for a non-religious person), and regarding it as something nationalistic and ego dominant.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

There are existential truths which science can't explain yet. Maybe they never can.

Infinity itself baffles mathematicians. What is infinity minus three, for example?

This is why we have philosophy and yes, theology.

Religious beliefs aren't forced on everyone. My parents believed in god but never cracked the whip and forced me to believe. You're talking about a stereotype. I just don't hate religion. It has bad and it has good. I just think kneejerk hatred of religion is often butthurt arrogance.

I'm an atheist. I'm not butthurt.

Religion is the stereotype within its foundation of belief and ideal. There is NO escape from that.

I was lucky, I never had it forced onto me and that is what is corrupting those that have. It takes the belief out of rational and logical mindset and into the land of la la fables. This is going to baffle, as it is ignorant nonsense.

Philosophy can encompass many things in how we live our lives, yet the notion of God as separate and supreme deity and what this God supposedly wants of us is born out of preposterous ideals, all conflated by a certain element in society for control and power over others.

I guess many could say I am atheist in the sense that I don't believe in theist God, yet this is just 'without' theist belief of God and nothing more. Many atheists are not really connected to holistic or spiritual notions of anything.

Infinity.

Re: Here's a thought about religion I have for a long time..

Sure, but can the human mind even contemplate that? That's theory, not mathematics.

We may not be able to conceive of an actual infinity but we can still reason about the infinite.
