Nonreligious people: Are we living in a constructed web of ignorance? How do you deal?
I feel like I can't believe anything or anyone, anymore. The more I grow up and experience and learn about the world the more I feel like everything is a lie. I only trust myself, but I am aware the others don't trust me. It's a sad state to be in. I feel like history books are full of lies and propoganda, I feel like politics and science is a big old lie. Religion is a scam. I don't even know who or what to believe.

Why must it be this way? There are even a lot of liars on GLP who create posts of things that never happened just to stir the pot of confusion a little more. Never let it simmer, it must always be cranking away, the wheels of illusion.

How do you guys find comfort in this? Everyone around me is religious and don't understand why I'm not religious. They all have a support system and emotional security. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to flip out and go crazy. This world is so full of hate and opposition. I never know who is really my friend. I feel isolated even in crowds of people. I'm always told to lighten up. I wish I could, honestly. I wish I was ignorant. Ignorance is truly bliss! Yet I'm always analyzing everything. It's in my nature to. I can't stop it, and that's what I dislike about myself. I just want to be happy. But how can I? No material possession is going to content me. No amount of research is going to leave me completely satisfied. I'm 21 and I feel like my life is already over, not physically, but emotionally. If that makes sense. I guess I should just go to college, land a well-paying job and then what? Wither away in my home?

I know what you mean even reading through your post I feel like you are telling a story in order to call people who think like that out in the open (or some other hidden agenda). My best answer is get away from the computer (if you are genuine).

What is your stance on God not religion. Just curious.

Of course I'm calling out to people, why else would I make this post? I have no hidden agenda. I'm just trying to figure this life out like everyone else.

If there is a God he's not an interventionist. Whether or not there is a God, I have no idea. There are too many theories I've come up with to just settle without knowing for sure.

Sorry for identifying God as a "he", it's just a habit from the environment I've grown up in. I hate when I do that.

Asking non-religious people for advice? The stupid being led by the stupid.

I'm with you OP. There aren't many like us and it's real problem. I really struggled with this issue that you're raising. I still do somewhat but it's gotten a lot better.

What helped me was coming to the realization that I coudn't change them. We are surrounded by beings that look like humans but are basically animals. No amount of arguments or information will change their nature.

The other thing that helped me was turning away from the BS and going within myself. I feed my mind with as much high quality ideas as I can. Good books, good movies, podcasts etc.

Don't forget your physical side either. Give your body the nutrients, vitamens, and amino acids it needs for you to feel good.

I assure you the construct is quite man-made. It's pretty clear really, who and what is behind the chains known as religion. Just look at the major accepted religions and who (& what) they stroke.

Most literally favor a single human bronze-age tribe.

Most preach the typical blah, blah, blah... Be good "or else"
Most preach you damned if power & wealth make you tick, though look at the world... Those folks are clearly winning. Have been for over 20,000 years.

Most religions deter being dishonest, stealing, swindling & getting rich... Except one.

The Earth's been duped.

Do the math.

They don't have trouble sleeping at night knowing all religions are bullshit & constructed to frighten the weak, (they 'bank' on it... literally) neither should you.

Someone once said Question authority and think for yourself but not many listened or maybe they forgot. I heard that once one figures out the meaning to life, there is no longer meaning to it.

For only being 21, you are doing great and well on your way!

Re: Nonreligious people: Are we living in a constructed web of ignorance? How do you deal?
I don't hate any of the religions. I believe that they are just looking for something to believe in to help ease them into the unknown. For some people, that works out great. I am one that cannot buy into the religious thoughts in this world. I am content with knowing that I do not know what is in the unknown.

No matter what we believe is there in the end will not change the reality of what is there. Since we cannot know for sure, there is no sense in beating yourself up over something that eventually you know for sure.
