Getting right to it. All humans have morality, that is. ''distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.'' This is standard exchange between two humans.


We are a highly social species, using social structures like monogamy, family, clan, and tribe. Our ancestors were using these structures at least 500,000 years ago. If you were suddenly plucked from your life and sent back in time to live with people in Indonesia about 15,000 years ago (or even Ethiopia 150,000 years ago), you would be able to figure out what is going on. The basic social roles, responsibilities, and civil rules would seem somewhat familiar to you, and you'd fit in pretty fast. How is that possible?


link

That being said, taking any timeline from any point in time as humans we would get along, we would have a system in place at least. Religious teachings are vast, there are 19 major world religions which are subdivided into a total of 270 large religious groups.

Think about that for a moment. Not only is there 19 variations of a supposed superior being but every tale speaks about it differently. This shows the inconsistent nature of all major religions, not one of them can be deemed completely correct as non of them are consistent.

Also another big one. Depending on where you are born, and what family you are born into normally depicts what religion you follow if you follow one. Inst it odd, that the RIGHT religion, was the one you born into?

Most religions thrive off the feeling of being all powerful, all knowing and make a living out of it at the same time. Since the dawn of time.

It would be obvious then that religion is young in our lives and only invented to promote a product of fear, you must act accordingly. This does not speak of a system that built our world or that it has any knowledge of life before earth.

The question should be asked, who in this world thinks they are all powerful, all seeing and all knowing. Those might be the same people that allow religion to thrive?

...you dont say nothing with that type reasoning.

There are also 19 brands of cars.
Now does that mean that the concept 'car' is false -- cause there are 19 brands ?

Telephone line....... I would say if any of them were ever true... it would most likely be that the very fist one had it right.... then as the story got passed ear to ear to ear it ended up not even resembling the original message.

At one point, there was a "true" religion, and everyone agreed on it, for the most parts, but it is against T(L)C to talk about it.

blinks - but we have testable evidence of the existance and attributes of all 19 cars

and further - none of the 19 makes of car claim to be " the one true car " - nor do they claim that other cars do not exist only " this one " - which is exactly what religions do

The Popes of Rome have been doing that since they came to power. And they all suck up Baalzebub's (a.k.a yahweh, el, allah) backside every single day.

An object could never be true or false, only ideas. You are not good at making comparisons. Maybe try again.

I believe there is a depth to religion that needs to be observed. It takes metaphysical concepts and make them some what into reality by enforcing them as a cultural dogma.. It offers a soul, a purpose and a meaning outside of our natural environment..

Or, you could do what you are born to do, eat, s#, sleep and f# anything that has a hole.. Spreading seed is your purpose nothing more..

Why would you think that highly superstitious people who had no clue about proper scientific methodology would somehow guess the truth out of thin air?

I have found just the opposite in my studies of religions: They all have far more in common than not, and do seem to have common roots as well -- both their histories and their major tenets. Consider the Epic of Gilgamesh and the story of Noah. Some scholars believe that Brahma of the Hindus is one and the same as Abraham of the Hebrews. Likewise, many scholars believe Moses was the Egyptian pharaoh Amon. Jesus is said (by some) to have studied at the Druid university at Glastonbury, and that they were among the first to convert to "Christianity" (although it seems they didn't have to convert, they simply accepted Jesus as their prophesied "Hesu").


The question should be asked, who in this world thinks they are all powerful, all seeing and all knowing. Those might be the same people that allow religion to thrive?


The true religious would say that only God is all powerful, all seeing and all knowing.

The problem is those who would hijack religions for their own power and avarice.

Religion is invented. Look at all of the invented religions around the world and back through time. None of them are real.

Sorry what? This does not connect with what I am saying. I am however saying that all religious tales are all injected after our initial understanding of morality is in place. Meaning that religion did not teach us this, meaning it came after. All religion therefore is false, or otherwise put. It is wrote about man, not a divine being.

Certainly, its people like this that are part of the higher power groups that continue to thrive off religion. Its obvious first and foremost the money made from it, look at any religious organisation and see its money income, its always in the millions. Also, regardless of money made there is a lot of power that comes from such.

If the world ended tomorrow and some humans were left running around, some may seek out these books. To control the newborns growing into that world.

yes.... - i'm afraid in your case that is true.

look; OP talks from an illegal taken position.
- he is using a computer, which'invention came by revelation from 'elsewhere'. He uses many things in his daily life, which were inventions - but often by geniusses : meaning those people did not 'get the ideas for products by themselves - but from the ideas of their spirit-entity [literally the meaning of 'genius'] .

That means that *also* this so-called "technical era" is religious !
why ?
because it presents the soul [not in your case though] a different vieuw upon reality.
and this 'modern vieuw' is "to control and rule nature" , with help of 'technics' , to try be 'autonomous'.

That
is a * religion* , tóo.
