here is my view on religion:

as a jewish child i had to go to temple every sunday, just like christians and church. i stopped after a while because i didn't like it and i didn't know what was going on half the time because i didn't understand the hebrew prayers. anyway, this does not mean that the experience was bad, just i think i made the right decision because religion wqas good for me as a child, but i dont really need it as a young adult; it would take up too much time.

no, im not an atheist, but i just don't really practice my jewish faith that often. basically, the way i see it is that religion should be taught as a backbone because it DOES create interest in how the universe works. a child won't understand the big bang theory, but they will certainly believe that an all-powerful being created the universe. this "knowledge" will cause them to actually think about a subject they would not have thought of otherwise: the origins of the universe. im not saying this belief is necessarily wrong, just easier to understand, and good to use as a backbone until we find more data and more viable theories arise.

bottom line: religion is good to have and understand as a base, but it shouldn't be something that dominates the major part of your life because that will prevent you from fully utilizing one of the great effects of religion: pondering how things in our universe work, as counter-intuitive as it may seem.

TL;DR: Religion is great to have, but don't let it run your life.

The reason why you didn't like it was because it's all a fucking lie and Satan is your master follow him and you'll get your fucking history right. Jesus wasn't Jewish or Christian... He worshiped Satan, that is why he crucified himself and said "Fuck you god!" now him and Satan are forever having butt sex down in Hell. You should see his anal tears, they're ginormous!
