A heart warming thought but the human race seems to need to believe in such things almost as if we have been programmed by a sick hearted comedian to
remain cut off and therefore distracted from connecting to those around us purely on the basis of an ancient and ever more irrelevant belief system.
I would like to think that without religion to turn our heads that we would reach our true potential in the arts, love, sciences and intellect but
something else also tells me that we are not allowed to do that as to reach our rightful potential we might become much more then the simple resources
we struggle to be so thus we have religion, a nauseating system of control set in place by a hidden high intelligence to keep our eyes pointed down at
our feet instead of up into the sky – our rightful place.
I think that without religion we would become aware of our hidden masters and they no doubt feel very threatened by this possibly so never expect
religion to just die because the stakes are high and it will do all it can to remain with us. If it must change or return under a different name then
you can be sure that it will because in my opinion it is by its very nature not progressive in nature and was brought into existence only to keep us
controlled and subservient, like a low gear for the mind and soul.
Hundreds of millions find reassurance and power from this but then with respect to believers so do those who were ever held hostage found themselves
succumbing to the Stockholm syndrome. In my opinion religion holds humanity hostage to higher aims and ideals that are not in our best interests!
Therefore if Christianity and Islam were to suddenly just disappear from the human mind I would lay money on the odds that a new religion would take
their place. Actually make that two new religions as these things seem to need opposite numbers like a Ying and a Yang as we are never happy to
believe in the same thing as that would mean we have no reasons to murder maim and hate those that have different belief systems.
When it comes to free time we seem to love nothing more than to march down someone’s else's street while beating our drums and threatening those
that have a different religious frame of reference, and that is an example of two peoples, Catholic and Protestant that are both Christian –
memories of the northern Ireland troubles as a former soldier oh my.
Shiite and Sunni have similar hates even though they are both for Islam and it will not change anytime soon as religion is bigger than the individual
much like any strict and unbending authority that demands obedience to the center.
Just my opinions, that strange offensive thing I am entitled to.
