Someone told me the other day that religion clouds one's mind. I say it depends on the person. The lack of faith can cloud people's heads, too. Keeping in mind I'm not very religious, and what religion I do follow is painfully open minded, but makes people squirm a little, I am of the ability, as an unbiased party, to note that the most arrogant, ignorant people I've ever met have been of two sides--hardcore Christian and hardcore Atheism. It's one reason I hate any sort of fanaticism. Because that's exactly what all this is.
Whether it be fro or against, that' still what it is. A hardcore fan for, or against. Neither is better or worse, but exactly the same with different ideals. Going around, spouting your ideals about there being no gods at all makes you just as much a theologian as Christians, Satanists, Satatics, Jews, Catholics, Mormons, Lutherans, Baptists, Muslims, Hebrews, Shintoists, Buddhists, Taoists--the list goes on and on.
I've spent many, many years studying all of those religions I mentioned and more, and I've come to a conclusion:
“I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.”
― Albert Camus
Less than 50 years ago, people would ostracize you for claiming God didn't exist, and claiming no religion. Now that people have become more tolerant to differences in opinion, it seems atheists, by and large, are proving they were the ignorant ones all along... Just like a few over the top, loud, and rudely ignorant Christians can make all of them look bad, so, too, for Atheists. I'll also point out that Atheists concocted a god for their religion. Joke or not, they've officially made themselves hypocrites. Ignorance has nothing to do with religion--having one or the lack there of--until we as humans MAKE it about such.
Thank you for your time, and for not needlessly bashing me on my views.
