There's nothing special about faults. Everyone has far too many of them, and their as common as a house fly.
Good for you if you believe that god has a plan for you and that it saved your life but it still remains subjective. Philosophy, the search for truth with facts can be as powerful as believing in a religion. It's really a matter of choise what gives you a purpose, satisfaction or belief in this world. But questions like for instance " what does it mean to me? ", " what's the plan for me? " are more of existentialistic nature. They don't give you facts to understand the world outside of you. And that's a task for philosophy, not religion.
Religion gives people something to believe in and encourages good acts. (extremists not included) I can personally name 3peoplewho are only here today because they believed in Jesus Christ and believed that he had a plan for them. I myself would have committed suicide at the age of 15 if it were not for my belief that God has a plan for me. That my years of torment were not just the result of others' will to do evil but that god had a plan for me that involved me having experienced so much mental and emotional scarring.
There is nothing wrong with not caring about understanding the world...
But religion often does promote ignorance, that is an undeniable fact.

It was his response to Lithium treatment, but it's a fair question/proposal he put out there.
The greatest of all time. The man who shook up the world. The greatest sportsman in history, reigning it in a tad and revealing another side to his nature. But, let's face it, he talked trash like no-one on the planet and backed it up with all skill of a neurosurgeon, and we loved him for it.

That is not true. Examples could be cited, but really, do you not have enough imagination to understand that the opportunity to grow and achieve is not limited to the age of 30?
So stupid! Life doesn't stop after 30!
I use boxes for groceries, so what lie-filled cabbage am I concealing?
This is the most stupid senseless quote I've ever heard! If he denies the box what hides the truth then? And box or no box, nobody knows the absolute truth ( especcialy Lopez! ).
When you can't stand to hear the song it can be a sensation of freedom rather than dead when it ends.
Ah! A bittersweet symphony it is, too.V 1 Comment
Hey, there's a price for fame. Personally, I don't feel too sorry for multi-millionaires. That's not a slight on him or any other, but deal with it just like the rest of us.
So stupid! It's like he's saying, " The Nazis are not evil but we are because we don't stop them ". His quote doesn't make any sense! He was very intelligent without a doubt but he said many stupid things in his life too.
And who is the other to say what I have to do? Is he more important than me in this world?
As though the average joe in the street has any say in the every day running of the world...
Child abuse? Domestic violence? The vulnerable? The unwell? They are victims and can't stand up for themselves...as though everyone on the planet is a Type A personality. Next!
Mass shootings at schools? Is that scapegoating the NRA? Many think so, though I don't. I find sweeping generalisations dull.
This sense of entitlement in today's society where almost every person on the planet wants their slice of fame via social media is repugnant. If you suffer status disorder, go speak to a loved one instead.V 2 Comments
It's your mind, your life, so give it your own meaning. Dexter Holland lives his dreams, is not religious, merely driven and positive.V 1 Comment
But sometimes madness can lead to stupidity. Look what happened to him. Maybe he had his reasons but it's still a stupid thing to commit suicide like he did. This quote of him was certainly forgotten in his mind when he did suicide because otherwise he would not have do that.
This great man gave us decades of madness. Everyone is entitled to exit their own way, but this guy gave a lot to the world and is sadly missed. But let's celebrate him anyway.
The great young man taking a swipe at Psychology and/or Psychiatry.
I hope so! When I go buy some Elvis music or movies I know that I can enjoy what he did for the entertainment of humans. When I look at Jesus I only see a image of a death man on a cross. Not very entertaining if you ask me. After all, enjoying your life, that's what it's all about.
Ironically, it may be the great Biafra himself who becomes the next Jesus, such is his greatness and morality.
