Fuck Your God! | Reviewer: Somebody | 6/8/10
Religion is a lie, and I don´t know why believers keep bitchin´. Like Glenn Benton says "Fuck Your God". Some say that religion gives you hope but what really gives you hope is the fact that you are alive.
Everybody shutup. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/14/10
I'm catholic and I hate it when people start an argument about religion. Yes there is/was corruption in the churches but there is whole lot more of it elsewhere in the world. The only reason religion gets such a bad rep when someone in a leading role does something he's not supposed to is because of his position. A priest is just as much human as you and I, so he's allowed to make mistakes. And most violence done in the name of god usually has alternative motives behind it. Religion would be used as an excuse, a very poor excuse in my eyes. If more people spent time practicing their faith instead of shoving it down peoples throats, we'd all be happy. All sins are forgivable, gay people are people not a blasphemy, evolution is not evil, every Muslim I have met has been a really nice person, Ghandi was a cool guy, and building Vatican city was a mistake. Thanks.
about religion (to the agnostic one) | Reviewer: TMSheik | 4/18/10
I personally don't have trouble with the religion itself. I mean, nobody really knows, and you could be right. The problem i find with religion is the people that run the religions. Those people are usually very narrow minded, and only care about power. This is a very big problem because when you assist to a church, you're helping them harm other people. So I too think we should all be good people, regardless of the religion, and respect other people's beliefs.
great song!!! | Reviewer: camilo | 4/9/10

faith | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/10
I want to say to Will that the sun IS hotter than hell cuz in hell there is a lake of fire and the sun is hotter than fire, also I want to say that heaven is hotter than hell cuz there are more suns, and it's funnyer in hell cuz you can do what you want cuz there are no rules and in heaven yhere are all rules and stuff. But I think that its better to have n religion cuz religion has killed so many people. I mean look at the crusades: they killed a lot of innocent people cuz they were muslims. And Inqusition: people tortured to death cuz of there religion. The Roman empire: cristians were thrown before the lions cuz of there faith. Second World War: people getting killed for religions. I think that people need to see that there are pritty much bad things happend for religion.
I Just Want You To Know | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/20/10
*sighs* It's no wonder so many people are anti-religion these days. I mean, listen to yourselves. I agree with whoever posted below me. You're all doing exactly what this song is talking about.
Now, this is way on the opposite end of the musical spectrum from Dream Theater, but there's a Relient K song called "I Just Want You To Know". I suggest you all look up the lyrics and take them to heart. I believe that if religious people had that attitude ("I don't want to say I'm right, I just want you to know") then there'd be a lot less people hating religion nowadays. Seriously. Just share what you know, don't force upon them that you're right, because for all they know, you're just full of crap. Just thought you should know.
The problem with this world -agnostic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/18/10
This is a great song and it brings out exactly what Dream Theater was talking about in its listeners. Look at these reviews, everyone is getting hostile and defensive and they all say that THEY are the ones who are right. "twisting faith into violence, in the name of God." Way to exemplify exactly what they were talking about guys. Attacking other people for what you believe. What this world truly needs in tolerance. Religion, or even a lack thereof, is irrelevant and useless when finding reasons why you should do something. Why can't you just be a good person? You don't need a religion nor do you need to be against religion to be a good person who tries to enhance other's lives. Learn to be help humanity, we'll all be better off than from your petty arguments on which religion is best.
Another Christian here... | Reviewer: unknownpersonality | 1/23/10
Will, I agree with you that Jesus Christ is God. But Jesus doesn't want you to insult people just because you don't believe in Him.
To the "sunworshiper." Yes, you know the sun is there, but who created the sun? God did. Reading your post made me feel sorry for you, it really did. I'm going to be praying for you.
Convert me | Reviewer: Your name | 1/11/10
I believe religion is about "fear and hope" hope that there is a reward or some sort for doing good after you die, and fear that you will be punished for doing wrong. Second, I believe that not all aetheists are the type that goes "religion is shit". Third, I also belive that all religions worship the same god, they just have a different way of worshiping. Fourth, aetheism is less violent than religion because they have one less reason to fight about. And religion is somewhat a hindrance to progress as they sometimes see it as immoral when its really for the good of mankind.
This song shows my other belief of corruption in the system of religions, that there will come a time religion will use its followers to eliminate something they don't agree with "in the name of god".
I have also come across a statement saying "If you believe in religion and after you die you find it isn't true you won't lose anything. On the other hand, if you don't believe and find it's true, you will lose that promise of something (eternal life, etc)".
I think the best statement here is:
"Keep thy religion to thyself"- George Carlin
I am catholic, who is very unsure of his faith. I cannot call myself an aetheist yet but i may become one (although not the anti-religion type). So can anyone convice me which side is better?
to all who dont know dream theater | Reviewer: fusion860 | 1/4/10
This is the truth about the song and the muscicians in dream thater. First off this song is about mostly David Koresh and his compound from the 90's as well as other false religions who teach hatred instead of truth. I am a Christian and also been a huge fan since their first album and a I am also a drummer. Mike Portnoy is Jewish although not a practicing one as well as Jordan Rudess. John Myung is a Christian and practices his faith as well as John Pertrucci who is Catholic, and Labrie is Lutheran. So for all you fans who are anti God maybe you should do your research about the members because the band overall are with God and not your fake dont believe in anything because you cant see Him attitudes. You believe in oxygen dont you but you cant see it. Its funny the same people who dont believe in God will find it easy to believe in aliens or bigfoot or the lochness monster. Oh and the biggest one I believe in ghosts but not the supernatural all loving God, give me a break. Search for the truth and educate yourselves instaed of saying something based on an opinion you know absolutely nothing about. God loves you and keep supporting the best prog band of all time.

heheh.. | Reviewer: boleh blah | 12/15/09
still some people think this song pointed to certain religion. come on, brothers. no religion is perfect to other religion. this one sez we are the true..and it goes on and on.. nonetheless, religion unite people. whether united in right or wrong kind of teaching.
you are an idiot (person below me) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/09
wow....that was very long, and if you truly feel that way then fine. however to spent that much time trying to convince people commenting on a lyrics page your right means one of two things. one you are very committed to worshipping the sun, or (and more likely) you feel the need to convince everyone around you and yourself as well that what your saying is right. why would you do this? it's probablly because you are very insecure in what your are saying and are looking for the approval of anyone. not that i can blame you. if i was challenging the millions and millions of people all over the world who believe in God, or a god by calling them fucking idiots i would want anyone to back me up. but anyway ive already spent way too much time trying to show you what a fucking dumbass you are...enjoy loving the sun and enjoying that this life is all you got and once your old you have nothing left to look foreward to except slowly rotting away in whatever way "life" gives you
Religion is pointless. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/6/09
Wow, I'm amazed at how much spite and anger religion can cause, even on a song review page. All religions are stupid, because they demand you to believe something that you can't see, smell, taste, touch or hear (if you claim to "hear" God, you're a fucking lunatic, go take some pills). They require you to throw away any sense of logic to promote THEIR cause. They always, always claim that there is something fundamentally wrong with humans, and what's the cure for it? Their religion! They're all the same, whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Voodoo or Islam, they are all mechanisms to brainwash and control. And what a wonderful mess they've made.
Religion is the root of all evil. Don't try to deny it, you know it's true. It has caused more deaths and intellectual degradation than anything in the world, and for what gain? Nothing. All religion does is provide a sense of stability for people in need. And what happens when someone tries to rock that sense of stability, to change their mind, to open their eyes?
I'm a sunworshiper. It grants me food, light, warmth and everything I need to survive. And best of all, I know it exists. It doesn't demand blind faith in it, it doesn't demand you to throw away all your intellect to promote its cause, and it doesn't start wars.
Now, go throw away your bibles or whatever it is your religion is based on, and grasp the moment. Because we don't need eternal life, we don't need virgins in Paradise and we don't need saving. All we need, is warmth, food and water. We can make a better world if we throw away our superstitions and embrace the infinite possibilities.
A world without a god. It is a better world. It is a world where humans take responsability for their acts. It is a world where you don't need to spend your life in fear of divine pursuit. Imagine being so afraid of death that you forget to live, only to realize that your life has been wasted on building up a stupid system that belongs in the middle ages.
Man created God in his own image, to explain that which he couldn't explain, and control those he couldn't control.
Now, it's time to step up and cast aside the myths and superstitions and start living, holy shit.
Great song ~ cool down people | Reviewer: Mostafa Galal El Din | 10/3/09
Great song, I love the chorus and the ending especially =D
...and BTW, I'm a Muslim, and I don't find this insulting to me or my religion in any way. It is merely just giving a thought when they say the part about the plural wives. As long as they don't insult Islam, there's no problem. Oh, and if this song annoyed you, then you shouldn't be listening to DT from the beginning because Rudess is a Jew (and I have nothing against them or Rudess); and DT went to Israel before to do concerts.
Dream Theater FTW!
