Colours

Religions are like colours. You might have a favourite colour, for reasons like blue is calm, green is soothing, white is peaceful and so on… But it does not mean that any one colour is better than other. You can have any one favourite colour but saying that blue is better than green, black is better than white is not only vague but also weird. What actually might be happening is that people try to justify their choice to others and as most people when start loosing a debate like this or when they are not confident enough become absolute and adamant about their choice. Then we can hear words like ‘Black is the best colour in the world… There is no colour better than Burgundy… How can you not like Pink???’

 

You can even do this experiment yourself. Catch any man having confident as huge as a nut and ask his favourite colour. Then slowly build an argument that it is not a good colour. Either that guy will agree with you or his final statement will be- “My colour is the best colour in the world.Period.”

 

Same is with religions. They are a way to live or for the theists a path to reach God. It is a matter of choice the path a person chooses, a way of life he is accustomed to. Some are non-vegetarian, some vegetarian (and I am talking about people who do this by choice not due to religion). Some are Hindu, some Islamic, others Christian, Sikhs and others.. This does not make one better or worse than other.

 

But it is just my stupid thought. Leaders of the world please do not be bothered by me. Lot of people are out there waiting to be convinced and a lot more to be killed. Be at your work while petty people like me sit idling away at home and letting others live.

True indeed. Religion, interests, favorites are nothing but choices at the end of the day!

yup.. and i have seen many people forcing their choices on others.. Religion is an example or rather the biggest example of this.

And lol.. the best example for rubbing ones religion on others is my college is making me study Gulf History and Islamic Studies, while I've joined in CSE. I can't complain cuz its a 3 Unit Course!

@ Aamir
I'm not a narrow minded religion centric person! Its just that I had taken an example out of my own current situation. No hard feelings. I know in and out about Islam and I sincerely respect it, I hope I made my stand clear!
