That same book that billions follow. That same book many cultures and even governments are run by. Hell in the US there is a constant battle between
people who want EVERY thing to be ran by that book and people who want a modern civilized nation. So its hard to dismiss the book when billions,
Jews, Christians, and Muslims, all follow it. But isn't it strange, the Islamic forces have three, Christians, two, and the Jews one book but they
are all tied together. Christians and Muslims believe that Jesus was the next in line, the Jews don't. Muslims believe Mohammed was next, the
Christians and Jews don't. Who fights the most? Who in the past 2,000 years have fought the most wars with each other? The Jews, Christians, and
Muslims. All over one, two, or three books. Billions killed, civilization lost for hundreds of years, empires destroyed, history exterminated,
because of those books.
The Torah is the basic written text in question for Jews while Christians believe in Christ and go by the New Testament. In any case these religions
as they are called believe in a Creator known as GOD. This is the definition of "Creationism"
Evolution is not possible if for instance all women were created from Adam's rib. Evolution says we are all related and are out of Africa. These
religions paint the Earth as under 10,000 years old while physicists and astronomers have shown that the Earth is over 4 BILLION years old.
If you look at religions that center around creation and gods it is possible to see that they are all hinged around a central theme of "Sun
Worshiping." Like the Son of God is actually a metaphor for the Sun of God. Religion is simply control through guilt based faith.
The important point is that no wars are waged over religion or any other of the typically generated ready made "reasons for war." Wars are all waged
over resources and resource control nothing more. At the end of any war the spoils go to the victor. That is the reason we go to war. The more
unpopular the truth is the greater the cover is. Whole societies have been rubbed out for land, water, energy or even riches.
It is much more simple to assemble an army when there is a "noble cause" like justice, revenge, religion and all the rest. If the leader came out
and said, "Honestly, we have to kill all of the savages because we want their land and all of their stuff otherwise we will have to make do with
less!" How popular would that be? Look at all of the religions in question and you will see that item #1 on the list is "No kill" and "Turn the
other cheek!" If anyone needs to be crushed then GOD himself does that crushing.
WAR = Resource control
