I was going round ATS looking at various threads and noticed the trend many have of turning into a cyber-religious war, particularly between the
Christians Vs Muslims.
Now I was born in Israel to staunch Jewish parents and I've seen just how EF'd up people can get when religion is thrown is thrown in the mix. I was
sent to Australia to live because from a young age as I would openly support the Muslims, I'm not pro-Muslim I just feel the need to defend anything
being attacked so harshly, and being surrounded by Jews it was often Muslims being abused(verbally).
Now I just wanted to say the basic guidelines for every major religion is the same and not original in the slightest. They are all recycled from
earlier works. So why do people seem so strongly to believe their religion is the only truth? We laugh at the ridiculous tales of the ancient Greek
religions and the like, but our stories which are so similar are real? What is it in the human brain that makes people do this?
All the religions state that their god is an infinite being, so who are we to try to define them? Trying to explain god is like trying to count to
infinity starting from negative infinity, we are not capable of even trying, yet we have no problem assuming that others can.
All these religions are founded on the basic principals of love and trust, yet here we are fighting amongst ourselves because we feel the need to
believe we are correct. None of them are correct, they all source back to a single man coming and preaching and going, and then quickly are
transformed and abused by religious authorities in the quest for power. Fighting about your faith shows you have no faith whatsoever.
Take a look at yourselves seriously. Jesus never said to create a billion dollar a year industry founded on the systematic takeover of empires,
Mohammed never said to strap dynamite to yourself and kill yourself so that others would fear your leaders. Above anything they said simply to love,
how is this so hard?
All I want to say is this: If Jesus or Mohammed were alive today and saw what you have turned their teachings into and what you do in their names,
they would be disgusted and ashamed. God is infinite, God is above worship, God is above ego and tribute, God is the good, the bad and the ugly. Live
your lives to be the best person you can, do not share what faith you have, God has infinite forms, God is unique to everyone. Don;t listen to what
the church or mosque preaches, listen to what Jesus and Mohammed preached.
PS. PLEASE NO STARS OR FLAGS!!!!! NONE! NO! ZERO! That isn't the point of this.
