Hi xpert, good thread this topic never dies does it?
Your question, or was it a statement?, was "How we were tricked" right?
Man is not known to be of the most selfpreserving logical nature, we venture into lethal endeavors with very egocentric motives. History reveals
thousands of examples of brainwash.
We feel so inferior as single individuals that we create "systems" (religions, clubs etc.) to masque our deepest fear of aloneness. Our whole being
cries for oneness and so we delude ourselves as "members" of some manmade construction that frees us of our true vocation to take responsibility of
ourselves, our "neighbor, our planet. We are cowards.
We trick ourselves over and over again.
But, here comes the big BUT. And I won't start preaching, I promise, I won't quote endless bible verses, I won't tell you you are wrong, but I will
refer to St. John of the Cross's, a shcolar of CC; work "The Dark Night of the Soul", he speaks of the utter aloneness of man, the doubt the fear
and the need to face ones fear not to fall into the trap of
comformatism.Comformatism is adapting to exterior rules that frees one from personal responsibility.
As I say to every athiest "God does not sieze to exist because you claim He/She/It doesn't" (the, he she it, is so I don't offend all those of
very strict belief systems)
But we aren't discussing the existence of a Diety but the stupidity of Man, or is your question a challenge to find that one answer that will prove
you are wrong, becuase if it is, I truely believe no man can reveal the proof only the Spirit of God can open ones eyes when the time is due. And the
Spirit ".....goes where ever It wills...." Ups, a qoute, sorry.:bash:
Have A Nice One
