"Did religion make people dumb? Or did dumb people make religion?"

Neither IMO.
It is human nature to look for an easier way for every endeavour. Religion offers that.
People had questions they couldn't answer so they created an authority to validate their answers. When those answers don't stand up they re-interpret, and...
Thank God for forgiveness.

Some Bears fans might still capitalize "he" when referring to Singletary.

I think it would be easier to not believe. This world is pretty random and crazy and cruel many times.

Sometimes it's hard to believe a God could allow such suffering and devastation for so many. It's easier for some to just give up and think He doesn't exist.

It's much harder to believe there's a reason for everything, no matter how sucky. It's faith. Nothing more.

I still don't know if I believe in God but I will say there have been times when I thanked him/her/it and times when I have cursed him/her/it. My guess is he/she/it couldn't give a flying [censored] about me and if I gave him/her/it praise or cursed him/her/it. I wish someone could convince me otherwise.

Do you give thanks to God for your resurrection from the dead? Seems like a little credit where credit is due. I mean, you were stone cold and your eyes were magotty.

Appy has his own set of superstitions and myths. He just doesn't like to think of them as such.
