As far as religion goes, it's not all bad.
Religion itself is a great idea. Take a story and present to a group of people. Within the story is a set of morals an values that the person
who wrote it would like to convey.
If the stories are taken as they are...stories, but the morals and values are followed and updated as the society does, then religion is a wonderful
Organized religion however, is the problem. These static belief systems that stem from thousands of years of bloodshed, deceipt and rewritten
scriptures to fit whoever is in power at the time.
Myself, I am not a religious person, I am a Spiritual Agnostic if that makes any sense. The current world religions, if practiced in the way shown
and expected, are a detriment to the human experience. They force you to be afraid of un-seen holy forces which have the power to make or destroy
I am sure our creator, whoever, or whatever it is, does not feel this way about the creations it has made. That is only my opinion however.
Anybody has the right to practice and preach their own religion, so long as they stop when it is infringing upon the rights of others.
Are all religions a conspiracy? In truth yes. Everything we are bombarded with on a daily basis has been twisted and fabricated to give it a certain
feel and to convey a certain message.
Everything is a small truth, wrapped in a giant lie. I am sure that the various religious texts, if in their original form would reveal some amazing
details about our past that we may never know now because of the hunger for wealth and power.
I don't think religion will ever leave, not unless the very thing we fight about makes itself known and gives us all the answer. And if that
happened, what would be the point of this glorious journey?
