Now, every religion has bullshit ideas and claims but Islam never fails to amaze me.
When you ask a muslim, "Why god created me?" he replies, "Life is a test". This is also true for many if not all religions.
But..... What if i didn't want to be tested. Why is god testing us?......
Quran gives this answer!
It was not god who wanted to test you, you opted for it yourself. See the following verse in quran
"Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant." Ch 33:72
It says further,
"And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we have testified." [This] - lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, "Indeed, we were of this unaware." Ch 7:172
So, basically, god created us and wanted to test us. Then he asked us if we wanted to be tested. Surprisingly, we all said yes. Then he erased that memory and sent us to the earth (with free will) to be tested.
Thats the most bullshit argument I have ever seen.
Whats the most bullshit claim/idea you've heard from religious flock?
