Religion = Social control.
That's it in a nutshell.
Questioning religious absurdities is a way to expose people who don't blindly do whatever they are told. Therefore they become a threat to any
establishment who uses religion and human gullibility to control society.
Can't have people thinking for themselves now can we.
Its why any religious structures have a built in totally absurd/supernatural/impossible element to their dogma.
Proving your 'faith' ie total belief in some impossible event, displays to the controllers that you will believe anything at all they tell you.
Politics and religion go hand in hand so well, in fact they are often indistinguishable from each other.
How near would an atheist get to the oval office nowadays? They would have to 'act' as a god fearing man/woman because religion has assumed the mantle
of moral guidance. In small minds that cannot think for themselves morality cannot be reached through thought and learning but by doing what a manual
says. Ergo, without religious indoctrination man is a savage. Pure crap but it has been driven home for milennia at sword/gun point and by
conveniently burning alive any pesky free thinkers.
Nowadays instead of roasting you alive for public display (and your own good) in the village square as a warning to others not to question (heresy)
you will get flamed (ironically) on websites by people with reams of snippets cut n' pasted from their thinking manuat
Thats why .
Better put on your asbestos underwear for this thread OP - good luck
