in our attempts to unravel religion, the very concept that is controlling us, we inadvertantly cast upon ourselves the very essence of the preachings.
our attempts at rebellion do not lead to world awareness and freedom of the mind, but in turn play into the very hands of the system we fight so hard
to reject. we find purpose in ourselves, where we should find serenity. it is mans fear that controls the world, not religion. religion is simply a
device in which to give man a purpose and sense of higher being. fear is the very thing religion strives for, fear of the unknown, fear of being
purposeless. fear creates insanity, blindness, greed, violence. the devil is not a red man with a red trident, on a throne of flames, the king of the
unjust, but rather a device set forth to further mould the path man takes in his life time. the devil is our fear, and consumed by our paranoia we
direct ourselves off the path towards the biblical "devil"- just in case. hence we are now controlled.
our romantic thoughts of an eternal afterlife- as promised by religion- are the very quintessence of mans desires. purpose. immortality. you may say
that religion controls the majorities, but not you. i say it does. it controls you with its inability to control you. your vehement attempts at
rejecting this concept make you a pawn in the hand of the system. religion may be a control device, it may not. the fact remains that although
religion may be the most profitable organisation in the history of man, and its influences are every where, the true essence of religion is to direct
man towards civil life, in order to be easily controllable by the government, or the ruling powers. although its essence has been warped with time,
the basis of it is still there. it is controlling you too with your endless attempts at exposing it. without this control system in place what would
become of man? our lust for dominance would prevail, the killing would not stop, but become worse. without any reason for civil living, no
consequences for our actions, we would slaughter each other, in an attempt for our greatest desire. immortality and purpose. it is our fear of being
forgotten that would drive us to become the most dominant man/woman. only then could we achieve immortality and find purpose in ourselves, by being
remembered through the generations, as a great conqueror, etc. without consequence for our actions we could not be civil, as we would quite simply
TAKE what we wanted. its far easier to fulfill our needs by just forcefully aquiring them, rather than working towards it. those of strong ethics
would fight against those of strong ambition, and the killing would be endless. natures order would be restored- the strongest surviving and the weak
perishing. perhaps it would be better to revert to mother natures way of things, a fine eco balance, but it could never be sustainable. a new
governing body would take over, with promises of prosperous life and other such propaganda, to benefit the lives of those people that run it, so they
could achieve a sense of purpose. they would in turn become our "God". the system cannot be beat, unless we are willing to give up our dominance,
and realise that there is no purpose for our lives, other than to coexide with the rest of the world, and that we are NOT immortal, and never will be.
the depth of time is unending, and our memories will turn to dust, just like everything else, and our species too shall whither. and will be replaced
by another. the world cannot sustain us inevitably, as the sun is a gas ball that is burning out, and our world is a resource that will end too.
nothing last forever, so our only hope for happiness and tranquility to to simply live. my advice would be to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, smoke
weed, eat lavishly(whilst replenishing your consumptions), have pre-marital sex with your girlfriend (infact get out the kama sutra book), wank, raise
your children well, study, and just basically LIVE.
