@Official-Penguin Every edgy athiest ever. Humanity isn't a religion. The fact that she stated "religion" means the said belief needs to be grounded in a supernatural being. "Humanity" isn't an answer to this. Nice try farming upvotes though.

RE: Love? What do you actually mean by it?
@Lorelei-Amphitrite most likely it still does, sure there is no such thing as an absolute true love to be found around ever corner. But it is more than alive at this point, love is the feeling of attachment and affection one has for an innate aspect of someone or something. You can love an idea, or a person because they share a common property, the ability to invite emotion. Poetry can be loved because it makes us feel, that emotion, is what love represents. If you believe in a higher reality, love is what connects this world to that world. If not, love is that which connects us to that which we feel for. I hope I haven't run in circles.
RE: Anyone who likes spiritualistic stuff?
@gurl23f You mean spirituality? If so, I'm rather a measly fan of it. But I adore the works of Rumi and Bhudda, I've the works of Bhudda and Rumi's Red Book. Both are amazing books, each ought to be read in their own respective languages, for a lot is lost in translation. Their emphasis on inner change and peace is one of the greatest refreshers in Eastern Philosophy.
RE: How do you deal with anxiety and depression when you don't smoke, do any drugs or when the person who usually sees you pass these times is unreachable??
@Kaneki-kun, primarily I don't name myself after an anime character. But otherwise I just read a book, eat some food and play videogames. If you want to meditate and read books, try some of the works of Seneca and Marcus Aurelius on Stoic philosophy.

RE: Does people really need to believe in GOD? Every religion has different story about "GOD" why?If God exits then where is it?
You seem to be highly confused on what constitutes as a proper metaphysical description of God, or of a possible God.
To begin with, religion may or may not be true, but the concept of God can probably be true despite religion being completely wrong on some ends. Søren Kiekegaard, and other theistic philosophers alike, had proper respect for the concept of God, even Nietzsche an Atheist philosopher, respected the role that God played in the life of individuals, giving them a feeling of an essence or meaning.
Now since you're disputing the validity of certain claims, I'd like you to consider the fact that, can you prove God doesn't exist? Even as an agnostic, I've found this to be a tedious question, what is the criteria for existence? If you're going for an absolute, science cannot answer you, so there is no absolute truth that science can offer, not one. This is not to say that science is wrong, far from that, the method of reasoning that science uses, is known philosophically as Modus Ponens, mode of denying, which aims at disproving the possible causes of an incident, although this can make something less wrong, it never makes something absolutely true. There are a lot of questions that science can never prove, like, is the method of measurement science uses correct? (To prove this science would have to use the same method of measurement, to prove itself, this is circular reasoning). Hence we turn to philosophy, especially ontology and metaphysics, which deal with the problems of existence. You can easily dismiss certain arguments for God, like the Teleological argument, or the arguments of Intelligent design by some method of reasoning which can disprove premises of said argument.
The one reason I advocate for a good degree of religious, and spiritual thought is mainly because of the comfort one finds in the concept of God, what is it to you or any other person what someone believes in so long as it gives them comfort?
