People bother me.
Tell me this, if there was no religion, what would be the point of being “good”? Where would “morals” come into play? These aspects were created because if you lived a humble and self-giving life, you would in turn be rewarded in the afterlife. What would be the point of being a “good person” if there was no faith. If religion didn’t exist, we would all potentially be selfish ungrateful savages that don’t care for others due to the fact that it just “doesn’t matter”.
The only reason why the golden rule is to “treat others how you would want to be treated” is because a religion was formed on respecting and loving others. Where would the fundamentals of doing such come from if there was no religion. So before you say everything is pointless, think about the good that you have crossed paths with in your life. Even if you haven’t had much, think about the things you take for granted. That car that let you in front of him even if it was his turn to go. That “sorry” you got at the coffee shop after someone bumped into you. That time when you left your wallet or credit card somewhere, and you came back 10 minutes later to find it in the custody of the cashier; that person didn’t have to pick it up on the ground or on a desk, they could’ve taken it.
Now some of these things may sound like plain “etiquette” or “common sense”, but where do these components from your daily life root back to?
