    Please Vote on this.

    Should People who believe in a Non Exsistant Man in the Sky GOD. Be classed as having a Mental Illness.

    Yes/No


    I Believe Yes becoz people who are not religious talk them selves are looked at as odd, weird, mentally ILL.

    Why just becoz you believe in God makes it alright to place your hands together and start talking to the sky.
    That is completely screwed up and i hope one day i virus will whipe outall religious people on the earth.

    That is just my view.

    No.

    Should people who randomly capitalize words be classified as mentally Ill?

    The word is ill, not ILL.

    Just my view.

    Maybe not mentally ill, but certainly simple, gullible and infantile. Unable to take responsibility for themselves and always needing the reasurance that there of a grown up, in this case an invisible one in the sky, to go running to.

    I guess you do not need the polls :) .

    Your question with "Non Existent Man" is already biased in the first place. More like a statement than a Poll.

    In my Opinion yes or you could say Extremely gullible.

    Who in their right mind would believe that a 'god' created the universe? There is a Scientific explanation for everything.

    Doing this gives them a lot of self support...
    Being an hindu i feel its dam good that people pray to an idol/sky/tree/xyz
    cause it keeps them self motivated...

    have you ever thought about being able to walk on ashes and not burn ur foot.
    have u ever seen discovery
    People eat glass, break coconuts on their heads and all...
    well at that time there in reality is no god
    but its their in their minds that nothings gonna happen to hem...
    just google it
    cause this thing helps a lot...

    I would say forget an idol and all
    just think that u dads/moms blessing are gonna help u....
    do that for some time...
    go to them and touch their feet and say thanks for everything that u have done for me
    and then just feel the new feeling that u have...
    its eternal happiness.

    praying gives us eternal happiness....| ITS not just that cause i m saying it...
    Science too agrees that this stuffs help..

    Studies found that praying for sick people not only had no possitive effect but that those who knew they were being prayed for actually took longer to recover. Though I do agree that the only thing religion is good for is instilling the kind stupidity that makes people want to smash coconuts on their heads.

    Well may be u are from a background of rich people who don't really seem to know nor care about people from your surroundings who are dying in hunger and pain and have capabilities but are not provided with work.
    They cant do anything except dye.
    So if u see these people as some idiots who are praying to god and motivating themselves to do something u CANNOT, instead of doing nothing but waiting for rich people like u to come and feed their family and save them from hunger death ... then go aahed ad think what u wish to...

    I don't come from a rich family, i have quite a lot of money now, but i grew up with next to nothing. But what my family did, and i still do, is do a lot of work with charities donating both time and money. So while you are sitting in a darkened room talking to yourself thinking that you are helping spare a thought for those who, ya know, actually do something that counts. Because i'm sure if you asked the average needy person what they would rather have between a newly renovated soup kitchen, free medical care and some warm clothes or some pretentious bellend talking to himself and getting all self-righteous about it i'm pretty sure i know which one they will go with.

    thanks again, for nothing, keep up the worthless work.

    what a joke praying wont help you get richer or find enough food to overcome hunger NO it will NOT.
    those poor countries believe in it coz most are completely uneducated and dont no any better so lets prey lets sacrifice a animal thats the kind of primitive thinking that needs to be stopped.
    donate a charles darwin theory of evolution book to a lil african kid help whipe out religion with one science book at a time.

    You have a very good point here. But I would like to add on to this. Your post points out something that is true in poverty stricken nations. IMHO you are looking at the base of Maslow's hierarchy. It is so at the base, but as the hierarchy progresses up, mental well being comes into place, this is where religion comes in.

    Wow.. How cool is it...
    people vote for no and they dont wanna come and share their thoughts...

    BY the way to the people who think they are really doing great work by giving Charity....
    let me tell you one thing straigh...
    CONGRATS... You Saved your taxes (This is obviously not intended to the once who really feel something and try to take responsibility, but is for people who like to showoff their charity receipts )

    Now how much charity do u make PENNIES.... 100$s...1000$s... or a million dollars...
    DO you think even 100 people are helped because of u...
    Well good if they are but let me tell you that there are more than Million people in the world who are poor.. including people in UK, US, and all.
    so ur money is just not enough...

    So y shouldn't they pray and give birth to hope in their thaughts... Y shouldnt they pray... You have music systems they dont... Y shouldn't they listen and sign to something that is going to have good effect on their soul/life. Just google about the chanting mantra OM.. and have a look at it for yourself

    I DO NOT SUPPORT PRAYING GOD OR SOMETHING... WHAT I SUPPORT IS THE IMMENSE SELF POWER GAINED BY ONLY THE FEELING THAT THERE IS SOMEONE WHOZ GONNA HELP YOU, GIVE U THE POWER etc etc...

    may be its just the inner conscious but the power of motivation and confidence is great...!

    may be you should search the net and read something more about our MIND too and may be you will learn about the sound mind and stuff...
    .............. I think that will be all...

    i love how you make unsubstantiated claims and then ask us to "seach the net" in order to find your evidence for you.

    Yeah the mind is a wonderful thing, but when it comes to putting food in bellies and innoculations in arms talking to yourself is frankly worthless compared to getting out there and actually doing something.

    I wouldn't say mentally ill, or gullible.

    If you have ever studied religion, there is a sh*tload of evidence for it, and loads against. It just depends on how you look at it.
