    What Jesus said was to the effect - Love one another. Do good things like feed the hungry and heal the sick.
    So it's enlightened when it comes to the social aspect. On how to build a working, happy society. Not fear - love. Very revolutionary - constructive.
    The life after death part is the existentialist aspect. And it works - seems to make people happier about life. Looks like doing good things makes people happier than spending a lifetime serving the(ir) ego.
    There's more stuff to what Jesus gave us. But ain't got the time right now. A very smart guy though.
    Shame organised religion ruined it.

    I no longer think religions are different.

    Each is describing the same world, using the same idea (metaphysicality).

    Other than that, there's a values system, which is where it gets interesting.

    Atheism is boring.

    Enlighten me as to how they all have a values system.

    Also, how is atheism boring? With it, at least your freewill and higher brain functions aren't enslaved and shackled to some fictional "holy book" for your damn life.

    Is the holy book fictional, or metaphorical? Is The Republic fictional by your definition?

    The holy book is fictional. It's not any more true than Harry Potter or Twilight.

    Also, by The Republic, do you mean the work by Plato?

    Religion is a weapon used for controlling the masses.
