Why has two people liked this??? (I accidentally liked by trying to quote).

I'm sorry, but any organised religious institute is, in my mind, completely unwelcomed. Organised religion is the most disgusting single cause of human retardation of knowledge, peace, understanding, love, understanding our existence ever to be invented.

Quoting Christopher Hitchens "Organised religion is like a celestial North Korea, except that you can escape North Korea by dying".

Please people don't like these religious institutions, grow some balls and speak the truth of their disgusting influence on the Human Race.

Historians will look back at the past and laugh and discusses how silly and stupid our time was still excepting organised religion.

It's 2013, grow up!!

In the past, due to our lack of experience, we had ( and after = is our modern understanding) :

Astrology = Astronomy

The Sun God, Jesus and most pre-0ad prophets = (A burning star, fueled by fusion) i.e. The Sun

A dark evil witchery, the devil, dark forces causing sickness to our self and our children = bacteria and viruses

Most earth bound phenomena believed to be the angry gods = Lighting, the weather etc.

And the MOST important::: Religion has been replaced by philosophy and science.

Religion has gone, it's pointless we have replaced it by science and philosophy, yet still some people on this forum will like a new religious building, organisation etc.

We have to fight (using reason and logic) to combat this curse on humanity that is Organised Religion. Organised Religion is political, brain-washing and backwards.

Please don't like new religious buildings in London. Thank you.

You can't be against new religious/cultural facilities in London, no matter your religious standpoint.

It's an extremely international and cosmopolitan city, which inevitably means that different religious communities will be present. The acceptance of such marks cities like London apart from the likes of Tehran.

A facility like the new JW3 Jewish Community Centre will include all sorts of uses and facilities for Jews and non-Jews alike, from debating to the arts.

The building appears nice, but organized religion on the other hand... total waste of time and effort.

I just think we are too easy to accept organised religion over science and rationality. Organised religion has an easy ride whilst at the same time being vile.

Tehran is the direct opposite of what I'm talking about, they hate other religions because they adore to the extreme one religion.

But hey, if you think mutilating the genitals of baby boys is a good idea then keep supporting new religious buildings.

As opposed to dis-organised religion?

The Jewish Centre isn't just about Judaism, it's about secular Jewish culture and identity as well. Jewish culture has been one of the richest and most productive in human history, so it's seems pretty ridiculous to me for you to belittle it as if it were an extremist organization which discourages rational thought and science. Many of the greatest scientists, political scientists, and artists of the last century were/are Jewish and in touch with their heritage and religion.

Anyway, as others have pointed out you are betraying extreme ignorance, intolerance, and a low-level of education. Most people in the world rely on faith in way or another to get through the most difficult episodes in their lives -- what could possibly be wrong in organizing that faith in communities which support each other and are founded on principles of love and sharing? It might all sound "terribly cheesy" to a cynic like you, but it helps millions of people who need it to get through life.

People are free to like what they want but I think jamiefearon has a point. Incidentally the 'clever' nickname of the centre is cringeworthy.

I'm afraid he doesn't. A city that only allows one belief, one school of thought, and restricts all others in such a manner isn't a city that I'd want to be a part of. That applies to atheistic, monotheistic or polytheistic belief.

Furthermore, equating and tarnishing a whole group with the vile acts of the few is the weakest form of argument going. Labelling me as a supporter of "GM" for not supporting his extreme views is quite low.

This will be my last post regarding religion on this thread, as I don't want to pollute it.

I have a master in Theoretical Physics and I worked at CERN for 4 years (so I don't have a low level of education). What I'm showing is the opposite of ignorance and intolerance. My believe for immigration in Britain is that we should encourage it, and we should have a policy of allowing all illegal immigrants British citizenship. I believe strongly in the complete freedom of movement of peoples across all countries. I think I'm probably one of the least ignorant individuals on this forum.

Quote:

I'm very very very dyslexic. Probably spent too much of my brain to mathematics than language.

Quote:

I completely 100% agree. All religion is extremely important in human history, like I said religion is the starting point of philosophy, science, arts and ethics. Without religion maybe Homo Sapiens would never develop as far as we have now.

But, now we have replaced religion with science, philosophy, ethics, astronomy, social care, politics even meditation. It's really time for the human race to drop religion it's an old idea which has the unique (unlike all other old ideas) to stick around and to be believed. For example, why don't we all still believe that evil spirits cause illness? Because we have evidence that it doesn't, yet still many religious people conduct exorcisms.

There is no excuse for religion now, it is disgusting controlling and outdated.

Quote:

100% completely true. Einstein was not a religious Jew at best he was a Deist. If he was a religious Jew I'm sure he would have never got as far as he did.

The great thing about "Jewish people" is how they can secularise themselves but still keep a shared identity, something which is extremely important after the terrible things what happened to them.

But my point is religion, all organised religion needs to go if we as a human race expect to live on this planet in peace for a long time.

By writing this post I completely agree that a Jewish center which celebrates the Jewish culture (without outdated superstition) is a great thing. Sorry if I upset anyone, but my point is how terrible Organised religion is. I also wrote yesterday's post slightly drunk.
