An issue which I feel strongly about!
Indeed that current of thought seems to be widely accepted nowadays, it's common to see people that aren't religious but say that religion and faith
may be something that helps people living and that even conforts people.
I must disagree!
Faith weakens people! When people believe in a God, when people try to explain anything using a God, using a belief, they exit from reality, they, how
to explain it, they destroy one more lasting part of their strenght.
By refusing to acknowledge reality as it is, by trying to explain it by other means that we do not have a clue about existence, not only our mental
abilities are gradually weakened (it's like refusing to think) but also our spiritual and individual strenght is destroyed.
What about afterlife? Another escape from reality, another way not to face the truth, another way not to face the real world, another way to deserve
Most of this behaviours not only show how weak the believing one is, but as well weaken it even more. In my opinion, not only non-religious thought is
needed but also Anti-Religious thought is!
How can man evolve from its actual stage if we keep putting our destiny in "God's" hands, how can we transcend our actual state if we believe we
have no real control on our life (and that is what religious thought is all about, with it's morals and values, punishments and sins, a real mind
control) how can we evolve if we don't have total freedom of acting, inherent to our human condition and undermined by religious morals and sins?
How can we be happy if we think how much we are puppets of our own (imposed) morals?
How can we accept to live under this conditions?
The Death of God is needed! First and most important premise of our transcendence, first and most important law of the path to the Super-Human.
