We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Is religion a form of abuse?

Having recently spent quite a bit of time looking closely at the doctrines of a wide range of religions, I have come to the conclusion that most follow the same pattern:

1. An authority figure makes a claim that the individual is in some way flawed or dependent on a supernatural entity;

2. The authority figure make the claim that only they have special access to that supernatural entity;

3. The individual is thus convinced they are incomplete without the authority figure;

4. This keeps the individual dependent on the authority figure; and

5. The authority figure gets control over the individual and their adoration.

It is a scam of course. Religion convinces you have a fake disease and sells you a fake cure.

I just read a short article saying Jesus never existed but that it was a scam from the romans to brainswash people.

Definitely a scam, always has been. It is all about control and power, and telling someone "they are not worthy" and need saving is abuse.
