Is Religion our Doom ... or Salvation ?

It now appears to many ( religious and otherwise ) that the end may in fact be ' nigh ' .

Religious see prophesies coming true, or at least an intolerable amount of Evil.

Non religious see ever - decreasing resources , chemical and biological polution ,
and perhaps genocidal maniacs jockeying themselves to come out on top - or, at least survive in some capacity.

I am not religious, and - in these ( end ? ) times of great stress and distress I myself look back with sadness and even digust at religion and what ( I see ) it has done to us.

I see children dead who would have been saved at any cost - if they weren 't going to a better place, that is. Actually I see everybody who dies at all these days as potentially dying young... possibly for this reason.

I see unbelievable amounts of time wasted because ' we'll get it right in the next life ' . This may well be the greatest ' drag ' in all of humanity. The great life - destroying cop out.

I honestly hope that we can all see something great at the end of our lives... but, I fear that the last thing we'll say is something like , ' too bad we didn't work on the REAL things more...' .

' Too bad we are dying because we focused on fantasy instead of ... '

I am afraid that in my old age, I now view the religious as a bunch of poisonous killers - even though I know they are clueless and therefore innocent.

Your connection with God, and your connection to yourself is Salvation.
