In every religion, there seem to be some common logic problems. And in a recent Reddit thread, people shared the top issues they had with their religions. Take a look below at some of the top responses and see if you can relate to any of these!
“What happened to all the fresh water fish in the flood? And where did all that water come from in the first place? And then where did it all drain to?”
Adam and Eve
“’In the beginning there was Adam and Eve.’ Ok, I’m following that. 2 people on the planet. They had 2 sons named Cain and Able. Yep, still with it. 4 people on the planet. Cain killed Able. Ok, that’s down to 3 people on the planet. Cain took a wife. Wait, wut?”
“I always found it hypocritical that the gods punished Oedipus for sleeping with his mother without realizing it, despite the fact that Zeus married his own sister while being fully aware that they were siblings.”
Heaven and Hell
“If good people go to heaven and bad people goes to hell, and also we’ll see again loved one after death, what happen when a good people love a bad people? (Think a mother with a serial killer son for instance.) Are the good people condemned to spend eternity without their loved one? How is it fair?”
“My wife and I got married in the church that her and her family went to growing up. Part of the process of being married in the church meant that we had to do pre marriage classes. During these classes we had to discuss a variety of topics including sexual relationships between husband and wife. We were told that the catholic church does not believe in any form of birth control, a child is a gift from god. Couples looking to engage in intercourse just need to keep track of a woman’s cycle and that would be fine. Kind of seemed like someone trying to rig a lottery.”
“If man is not perfect, but man wrote the Bible how am I supposed to trust what I’m reading from the Bible. How do I know they didn’t mess anything up?”
“God is perfect and cannot sin. There exists ‘the wrath of God.’ Wrath is one of the seven deadly sins.”
“Virgin Mary had a child. Glances suspiciously at churches/catholic schools stating abstinence is 100% effective in avoiding a pregnancy.”
“God teaches us that it is a sin to be envious, and to be prideful, and that we must have compassion and understanding for others. And yet he will literally condemn someone to an eternity in hell for not worshiping him, even if said person has literally never heard of him.”
“The earth way created in 3 days. How were there days before the earth existed? Was God measuring ‘days’ based off another planet he created?”
The Garden of Eden was the Garden of Incest.”
Love and Hate
“’I love everyone no matter what’ followed by ‘You better love me back or I’m gonna hate you forever and torture you for eternity’ followed by ‘I don’t love those people neither should you, what you should do is make their lives a living hell.’”
Is There Really Only One True One?
“Plot hole: there are hundreds of other religions that also claim to be the only true one.”
