Lots of people talking about God and the religion. Most of those people, like 99%, are hypocrites and want you to respect them because they "know" religion and stuff. If there is a God shouldn't He chose someone to represent Him and His religion instead of letting every kind of people to represent Him. Today, there are no people whom you can believe, as I mentioned earlier so God existence remains unproven. Well, there is a ton of papers and arguments but the people who use them (people who are alive) are not to be trusted. Where to find God, who will show you the path to Him when they themselves use "God" only to gain some worldly benefits.

If you have doubts about everything, how can you hope to ever come to a realization of God? Its a matter of faith, especially since nowadays, by proof, people mean what they can physically see or touch. Take love for example; love is a complicated thing that can be defined in various ways. You cannot physically see "love", but only through signs and observations.

I agree with you, religion is a highly profitable business and finances an industry of deceit to keep the show on the road. It has done so for millennia, Gods have come and gone but priests/clerics have always made money.

Religion should be something personal between you and God, it should not be a puzzle for clerics to exploit.

Sometimes it's not because they "know" religion and stuff, but because they'd like some assurance they are right. In a lot of cases, "In your face until you stop arguing" is taken as a victory. Not to be taken personally, it just lets you know where their knowledge/ignorance line is.

Too much listening to what people say the Bible says, the Quran says, not enough reading for oneself. Too many people asserting who and what God is, (and why you should give them your money)

How to find God.

The Prophets of old used to run out into a field screaming and ripping off their clothes, but King David recorded God as saying, "Be still and know that I am God"  Everybody likes to keep us bouncing off the walls to distract us from our own journey and join theirs. If God is the center of our journey, we should be looking within.

    • Hmm not sure what you mean brother. But the chaos in middle east, that we have seen in recent years, the unstable state of government and nations surrounding israel is not a conspiracy and the growth of israel over occupied land and its increased influence and involvement in the chaos is not a conspiracy either.  
    • From a moral perspective i can understand this. However, i know hardly anything about politics and millitary strategies. I am sure sayyid Nasrallah (may Allah bless him) knows what he is doing. But surely, by empowering and protecting palestinians, who in turn decide to join ISIS and our enemies, we are kind of damaging ourselves? A bit like an own-goal.

    • Salam brother, If you want to be a shia of imam Ali(as), then it is better you take after his akhlaq, he had respect for the the wife of the Prophet(S) as shown in the battle of Jamal, lets also have some level of respect in honor of our 1th Imam(as) and our Prophet(S) and let Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى be the judge.
    • ـ الإمام الصادق (ع): امتحنوا شيعتنا عند ثلاث: عند مواقيت الصلوات كيف محافظتهم عليها ، وعند أسرارهم كيف حفظهم لها عن عدونا ، وإلى أموالـهم كيف مواساتهم لإخوانهم فيها. Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Test our Shi`aa with regard to three things: the prayer times to see how well they observe them, their secrets to see how well they guard them from our enemies, and their wealth to see how they help out their fellow brothers with it. [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 83, p. 22, no. 40]
