>According to figures published as part of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) "well-being" research programme people, people who say they have no religious affiliation report lower levels of happiness, life satisfaction and self-worth than those who do.

Why aren't you worshipping a god /r9k/? You do want to be happy right?

Considering you have to be some sort of manic to believe in imaginary friends, or at least kind of psychotic... I'd say it's understandable why those people are happier.

I was the kind of kid who despite going to bible studies since very young never actually thought people believed in the stories of jesus turning water into wine etc.

It came as a shock when bible studies transitioned from what I thought was a singing/hanging out class to a migraine inducing fest. Needless to say I stopped going and I never felt the same way about my friends.

You can't just start believing in a bunch of obvious bullshit at age 23.
You need to be brainwashed from birth like all the people in the US.

Also, you can't magically change your beliefs. If something doesn't make sense to you logically, you can't change your opinion on it until met with persuasive data.

>>26221245
No, we don't. The age of the universe is calculated based on its expansion since the Big Bang. So:
1. We assume the Big Bang theory is correct. It most likely is but still, it's just an assumption.

2. We assume we know at what rate the universe has been expanding.

3. We assume the Big Bang was the beginning.

The big bang is really just the point where there was a low enough density that the four fundamental forces operate the way they do now. If the universe is infinite now, then it always had to be infinite.

Philosophy brings more happiness and an overall better state of being than religion.

Prove me wrong.

The unhappy people who are not religious are unhappy because they're idiots conforming to the consumerism mindset.

Epicurus figured this shit out thousands of years ago. He inscribed over the fucking marketplace how to live well and not driven to buy happiness.
>>
>>26220961
Is it really happiness we seek?
Lets put the fact that I cannot bring myself to believe to the side, let's say that I find it easy to register the existence of said omniscient and omnipotent being as truth. Why should I serve it? The only emotion I could feel towards God would be envy for that which he has, and hate, for decreeing that which defines me as human, gluttony; lust; greed; pride; sorrow; wrath; vanity and sloth as sins.
I never sought happiness, I always sought to experience as much as possible, master as much as I can. I know that happiness, for me, it is to become god, for now unreachable, so no I not look for happiness OP you fucking faggot.
>>
So worshipping something that makes no sense to you because it makes you happy is good? That's pretty retarded.
>>
I seriously hate it and used to be happier when i was religious,but unfortunately i am a nihilist ans can't believe it or any bullshit "illuminating"philosophy.

These people truly believe in their faith. If I just picked something up and threw myself into it I'd just be faking it.

You can't force faith, anon. We can only hope our heroes watch over us from robot Valhalla.

nope, I was educated in Catholic Education for 13 years. Religion is hypocritical in my opinion. They never teach you about the fuck ups their religion had (for obvious reasons) despite the religion teaches you to admit your weakness. Now for a history buff this infuriated me, I knew the 30 years war happened, I knew the spainish inquisition happened I knew the French Protestants where kicked out to of France to America, these fuck ups all happened.

Also in Religious schools you are essentially attempted to be converted at every point in the year. I was baptised a Protestant and had to be re baptised as a catholic because the Catholics hated it it. Pretty much they never shut up about how God does this God does that, like fuck I just want to eat my food, I just want to sleep. You get sick of religion by the end of it. Also some learning is censored as in contraception, hitler's hate for Catholics. You are also forced to do religious shit with the threat of being failed for graduation, so you are forced into volunteer work and some petty religious shit. You are also forced to learn religion even if you are Jewish or a Sikh, also no other religion matters in a religous school.

However I am not an atheist nor an anti religion person. Basically I have no reason to ever partake in organised religion again.

I was raised catholic but I stopped going at around 15. After that my parents tried to get me to go to some methodist crap which seemed more like a cult than a religion. The catholics seemed nice, the methodists were obsessed with hell and talked about how "Catholics worship the false idol of the pope" which was a lie and made no sense so I stopped going there too. I hate being in public and being forced to interact with others. I hate singing, as in, any event in which I am expected to sing and especially sing praises. Religion and such questions about religion have never really been something I thought about since then. I realized I wasn't a religious person and that was pretty much the end of that. I still have some respect for the catholic church though and love reading about religious history.
Islam is shit tier though.

Religion can't make you happier unless you're living a normal life with no problems. Otherwise you're probably miserable and lying to yourself about it due to muh Lord and savior will save me.

It's not about believing in a God per say, but in something that surpasses mere human existence.
Society is an extention of the individual.
Thus, you need to believe in something that makes social life greater than the sum of its components (individuals. A higher goal which gives meaning to your innate efforts towards progress.

Religion reassures you that your pious life ties this world with a pure, spiritual one. But there is also the nation, which is a historical tribute to human survival that you can serve by being a citizen and a soldier.
