That is typical of software I would say.

Software as a rule is so buggy that we all welcome upgrades and updates hoping they have fixed some of them.

Am I being a stupid religious teen?

People being religious is not stupid as long as they understand the due value of human rights.

I see a lot of people Who think they are being very religious/virtuous by doing various rituals, worshippings, etcetera but fail to follow Mark 12:31 and Luke 6:37

Hmm, I think I should rephrase by saying that those verses and a few others should be given more importance than other stupid things.

There are an arbitarily large number of those people. I hope I will be a better human being some day

I do not know why you think there are no such people or if I will ever be able to show that such people exist, but I really believe that is true.

It is true that there are many people like that but one should not downplay the importance of rituals.

Do you know this kind of egyptian/greek idea: X and Y are two of the gods who do not like each other or are competitors. Our mighty king worships X all the time but not Y so much. So, Y got jealous and put The king into huge trouble.

It would be wiser to study religion for historical, moral and spiritual guidance then to follow the modern trend of attempting to find holes in it.

That is what a relationship means

I do not think so. A relationship is supposed to be a subset of the cartesian product.

At least, that is what I was taught last May
