Okay, so I know I have to be like the 7 BILLIONTH person to have an opinion about this, but I really want to let people know what I think.
I do believe in God. But I don't exactly believe in the Bible. I've never read it, and actually attempted this summer and failed. Although, from what people have been preaching from the bible that I've heard in the media, at school, and practically everywhere in between, I think I have a pretty good idea of what it tries to teach.
#1: I don't believe in creationism. I think it's ridiculous to give all the credit of life to God. We evolved from micro-organisms, and maybe God put those on earth. But I dont think out of boredom, and self-amusement God created a man, then a woman from a rib. And I completely don't believe that a snake taunted them with an apple (I read that far and stopped). This is complete propeganda.
#2: If all ideas in the bible are like this^ then I doubt any of it has much meaning. How can the Christian religion expect me to believe that homosexuality is wrong, when at the same time the religion wants me to believe that one day long ago a snake talked and tempted people with apples? It makes no sense. I'm not trying to say that I disagree with everything the bible has to say, because hey, I believe in God and isn't that what the bible is all about?
#3: On the abortion issue (and I know I'm going to get a lot of angry people disagreeing with me on this one), I think it's up to the mother. I honestly don't see a problem with it. Most of the women who get an abortion are young, and wouldnt have the money or time to give the child the happy life it deserves. I don't think that if a woman is pregnant, she's obligated to have that baby. It's all her decision. And about rape derived babies, who knows what kinds of diseases the man had? Pro-choice, all the way.
No one should try to push their opinions on others, because of what they THINK is right and wrong. Keyword THINK. Opinions are only opinions and everyone has them. They are subjective. To persuade someone to change their opinions because of your own would be trying to make them fact. Which they will never be. Those of you who are like this- Get Over It. Everyone is going to think differently, and if you want to change that you can go waste your time because it's never going to happen.
This entry wasn't made to preach you, I'm just talking.
If you agree with me please comment and let me know :)
