Who hurt you, bro?
First of all, yes- humans need purpose. Even you have a purpose, albeit it be a minor one; which seems to be the spread of nihilism and an uncaring attitude. Yeah, bro, we are all gonna die. We all shit, we all eat, we all sleep. But we do need purpose, because that's how we always grew. We grew as a species because we
enough to do it. Yes, it was survival. I highly doubt the first man used fire to do wood burning art, he heated himself, lit his dwelling, and cooked meat to use the calories. But we did not develop the arts because of a need, we developed them because as a society and as a civilization, we wanted to see something more out of the world. To see a brighter day, to see our purpose come alive in a tangible way.
I am not going to sit here and yell at you for not believing in a God. I don't care, really. I also wouldn't care
God(s) you believed in, be them of Muslim, Christian, or Hindu derivation.
I am going to sit here and tell you that believing in a God is not a passing of responsibility. Be it perspective, aceshot gained friends because of collective interest and common association. They loved God, he loved God, they all loved God, so why hate? The same God with the same scriptures, at that. His purpose is clearly not solely a God when he's shitposting on a mostly nonreligious underwater basket weaving discussion forum, he has his other interests and pursuits, I'd wager. Settle down, graduate from a class or school, get a new job, discover an idea or concept, invent, procreate. Whatever it may be, he isn't solely dumping responsibility.
Also, your preacher sounds illogical...did your uncle fucking butcher a hundred people? Did he kick the preacher in the nuts? You're just being ubiquitously one sided. Unless the uncle did something, like openly reject the church and say "fuck you" or some other thing, why? I'm not taking "He was just r00d", that's ultimately the opposite of what a preacher- even a zealous one- would act like.
Believing in a God sometimes can be as you described- consuming. It can envelope you. But don't assume ideas about aceshot solely because he believes in a certain diety with certain scriptures. Christianity is not a religion of misery, it has created beauty (though I will admit- has certainly destroyed. Crusades, anyone?) And why just since the Middle Ages has this come to light? What of Christianity in the 200 years since its development in the Western Roman Empire?
You are projecting one bad experience from one overly zealous priest onto all of Christianity. Don't let the hateful and hypocritical words of a priest distract you from the essence of what I'm saying. You think that its about absolving myself from personal responsibility and motivation? No. I clearly stated that with faith I have an increased sense of responsibility because instead of living how my sinful desires want me to live, I have to overcome temptation and live a holy life. Also motivation comes from the fact that I have true purpose. None of this is about being lazy or incapable of handling hardships. Its about being sure that you don't have to overcome hardships alone and using that as motivation to keep on going.
I have to admit that my response was absurdly aggressive and for that I apologize.
This is not a single experience. I can give you one thousand examples of how religion destroys reason and self criticism.
I was born in Spain, particularly in Seville, where christianity has the deepest roots. I studied in a religious school until I was 12 and I believed in god until I was 17.
