Religion is a very interesting thing.
To some it is their life and to others it is as a prison they hope to stay away from.
Religion is pitted as being either good or bad.
Can it not be both? I was deeply involved and commited to religion most of my life, and through religion I was able to see my way out.
So was religion there to help me grow past it?
Or is it their to enslave people, but it has to use some truth to be effective, therefore always leaving a remanent of hope for escape?
It may be as I stated in the previous paragraph more so then in the 2nd paragraph.
If so then the whole conspiracy of religion is just that...to keep people entrapped, and it typically crumbles due to the very fact that truth does
lie within it, and it rebuilds itself.
Take for example Christianity (others can be included, Judaism, Islam)...these will probably last until they morph into something else, or people
awaken from the need for a religion and an idol to worship. (In this aspect Judaism has an edge in the fact that they do not allow the worship of any
person, etc...this is actually on track if the people understand it for what it can mean in terms of liberation)
Lets take a look at some of the cracks appearing.
With technology comes the spread of information, with more information we can broaden how we think and look at things more objectively.
Homosexuality is the biggest no-no in Christianity.
So is murder.
Lets take a look at something.
Snails have both male and female parts and thus multiple fast as they dont have to look for another of the opposite sex. Wow, God messed up or what?
This kind of flies in the face of the no homosexuality thing. (Hey doesnt matter if its "just" an animal...God cant be consistent in His/her/its
rules to creation?
What about the clown fish (you seen nemo havent you?)
The male fish can turn into a female fish if the female fish dies who is head of the group.
Whats this do for Transexuals? Quite interesting. How can they be ostracized when the omnipotent, all knowing, all everything God is messing up
everywhere in nature?
(or is it a mess up?)
What about the praying mantis? The wife has sex with the male then eats it for dinner...oh yummy. Yes this is bugs we are talking about. But when
faced with a fundamentalist, evangelical Christian...you will hear no end to the perfect nature of God and how nature even shows what is natural.
Well, not so sure anymore this is the case.
So with cracks like this, more and more people start waking up and smelling the coffee so to speak. The thing that was used as a tool by some to hold
them back begins to crack and fall apart. They can then go to the next level or keep on recycling religions.
Interesting stuff...nature is quite interesting indeed. We can start looking at the bigger scheme of things and try to understand why things have been
the way they are. This is fun as you get into the whole "why" and the answers start coming. NO more stress and strain of trying to understand or fit
in or please the wrathful loving God...but freedom to see and to understand.
