Religion is slavery.. It's quite possibly the best tyranny ever devised, because it has survived so very long, and it refuses to be stamped out in
democracies and authoritarian regimes alike. It is a system of slavery that knows no political affiliation, prefered economy, or higherarchy of rule.
It is the lowest common denominator of tyranny, exploiting the most fundamental flaws in human beings almost as if nature intended it to be that
If religion were an animal, it would probably be a parasite -- possibly a leech -- and it would see itself as fortunate, because nature created a host
for it to feed off of. It hijacks humanity, and commandeer's our destiny. It is both the source of great achievements of social order, as well as
detrimental setbacks, by the decree of cynics and psychopaths who are personified as God in the flesh -- or the closest thing to it.
And what about God, anyhow? Is he really so great? Why doesn't he ever show himself.. Why is he strangely absent when he is needed the most, and why
does he become obsolete when uncertainty is be replaced with knowledge? To need a god in the 21st century, one must ignore what is already
known about much of the universe. God's role has all but vanished completely, as the only atom of relevance left for a deity is to simply prove he
exists at all, just for the sake of existing.
Where does that leave us, as people? What kind of person belongs to religion, and believes in god, in this stage? What purpose does he serve? What
purpose do you serve, if you believe in him?
Are religious folk being taken advantage of, or are they doing what they were bread to do; is a worship of "god" inevitable, and what use does it
have in the 21st century?
