My thoughts on baptism and organized religion:
As for baptisms, I don’t believe in them. It’s just based on superstition. That you had to wash away your sins. A newborn child could not commit sins because he/she is not yet conscious of what he/she is doing. Baptism is done for the remission of sins. Also, the original sin does not exist anymore because Christ (if you believe in him) sacrificed His own life for the forgiveness of our sins when He was crucified.
I do not belong to any organized religion either. It’s all just myth. Before jesus/christ, numerous gods were just like him…born from a virgin, died on a cross, rose after 3 days, etc. etc. etc. Yet they don’t tell you that. The bible was also written over hundreds of years by many people. Everybody would add their own little stories/myths. And I think that any religion or philosophy which is based on the fear of being tortured for eternity (hell) because of some godling’s displeasure is psychologically diseased. Unfortunately people believe the false stories they’re told.
Alternative: Wake up and think for yourself. Question everything.
