I’ve spoken to many evangelical Christians IRL who honestly believe that Jesus will come back in their lifetimes, maybe because much of the New Testament is written with a sense of urgency which heavily implies something dramatic is going to happen very soon.

But those books were written centuries ago. And there have been many people in those intervening centuries who read them and assumed something would happen very soon. And they were all wrong. 

I’m going to guess that none of these people have seen 2001: A Space Odyssey.

If you find yourself constantly making exceptions for your god, either your basic assumptions are wrong or you need to have a talk with your god.

“Kids need religion”

Can someone please explain this concept to me?

I mean the concept where parents who are inherently irreligious feel like their children NEED religion, ANY religion.

They dont care what world view or theistic view their kid has as long as they “go to a church” or get taught “some religion”.

Does this go back to the fear of no morals and no purpose?
And if so dont they care WHAT morals and purpose their kid is being taught?

I just dont get it. Espcially coming from adults who arent religious(they may be theists, but they dont worship in any way, or follow rules, or follow any group).
