I'll finish this sentence from my perspective, but first i have a few thoughts i would like to share in order for you to follow/acknowledge my point
of view, and my "brand" of thinking.
I have a question for you, personnally:
Is a person's intentions good when they are only motivated to do the right thing out of fear of reprisal, or fear of the consequences if they do the
wrong thing, or do not act at all?
It seems to me that most organized religions that i am familiar with promote this ideology that teaches and preaches that your intentions are good and
pure if you do good deeds because you fear the consequences of not doing the good deeds.
How is this not promoting fear, and the necessity of it? It is rather apparent from the dogma of many faiths that fear is the underlining system of
control to get people to do the right thing.
I think Fear is the root cause of everything humanity views as "evil".
Fear in my opinion is the opposite of Love, not hate.
How can one justify their hate for another without first feeling afraid that that which they hate has the potential to either deminish, or take away,
something they love and hold reverence for?
I know enough about how the human brain works by the "Law of Association" to form new memories, experiences, and ideas that can only attach
themselves to compatible pre-existing truths that are accepted as facts by the conscious, and subconscious mind.
I feel confident in saying that Fear is what promotes compartmentalizing of the brain, instigating the percieved necessity of having barriers in
one's own mind to the degree that the human mind is literally fractionalized in such a way that the person is only consciously aware of 2,000 bits of
information per second (sparks of electricity shared between the synapses of the brain cells) compared to the 400,000,000,000 bits of information
being relayed between brain cells in the subconscious part of the mind.
Consider this: All sensory input into the brain First gets introduced to the subconscious part of the mind which processes the information at a
speed of 400,000,000,000 bits of information per second. Then what information your conscious mind is willing and capable of accepting is introduced
from your subconscious to your conscious part of your mind. But, can your conscious state of mind really transcribe the same amount of
Fear inhibits the mind, and restrains our mind's full potential. Why? Because of your conscious intentions. If you only have the intentions to
survive, then all the information you need is how to survive.
I believe we have some kind of mechanism (be it Self Pre-Serve, or another) that prevents us from being capable of consciously understanding even our
own minds (the 400,000,000,000 bits of information per second we are not consciously aware of).
So, to finish my own sentence, with my support being the above stated:
Organized Religions Are Wrong Because:
They promote an ideology in which people who do good deeds have good intentions because of a primary motivation of fear.
Fear is their cruch and system of controlling the wills of others.
Do you think God wants to be feared, or understood/accepted/and loved?
I sometimes think fear and hate are one in the same, because it seems neither exists entirely without the other. But to send both of those files to
the trash bin definatley help in clearing up a lot of space in your hard drive and assist with de-fragging your own mind.
I'll let you know in advance i doubt i'll defend my view if it comes under attack in this thread. You are intitled to either agree or disagree with
how i observe reality. And, i'll read your words with as open a mind as i have. But, if the rhetoric turns negative and belittling, i am not
participating. There is little one could say to prove that my justification for my opinion is not rooted firmly in accepted knowledge.
So, now it is your turn to finish the sentence, or simply say that you find no error with organized religion.
Organized Religions Are Wrong Because: .........
