Tony; Religion has failed because they act like children. The parent tells them something and they only hear what they want, only take what they want from it, only believe what they want.

The Christians added rror stories of hell and misery and ignore the rules laid out for them. Others see the anger or discipline and respond out of fear or ignorance, claiming that if daddy loved them they shouldn't get punished for breaking the rules, or that there should be no consequences for their actions.

The Jews refused to acknowledge God's son, probably cause he called them hypocrites and told them they were doing it wrong. And really, who would ever want to admit killing God's son. So, they discount everything dad told them after the part they dont want to believe. (No offense meant David)

The Mormons and the Muslims don't think what daddy says is good enough, so they had to get their buddy (John Smith or Mahammoud) to correct their dad. Yeah... that makes sense.

So, yeah, religion gets it wrong. God says this is who and what I am. And we say, you lie!

You are right. Religions set the whole thing up as a reward and/or punishment arrangement. Why not goodness for goodness sake as an adult approach? I am not offended. The crucifixion of Jesus was a combined action of Romans and Jews of the time. Since I do not view Jesus as the son of God, it does not have the importance to me it does for you. I view him as a rabbi as great as Hillel, who preached the same message of peace and 'do unto others' the generation before.
