I'm not entirely sure about a one-world government, but I don't understand why a one-world religion wouldn't be beneficial (aside from the
elites/exclusionists, the greedy, the racists, the ignorance, etc.)
I find it odd that people can't realize that their chosen religion isn't necessarily the "right" religion. It's all a matter of faith anyway. Why
can't they all be right? If you believe in a God, would it not follow that said God could have created all of the competing religions for a specific
I think it's naive to assume that your choice of religion guarantees you some sort of spot in a divine afterlife. The way I look at it, all of the
religions serve a purpose for humanity. Religion isn't about an afterlife. Religion is about survival.
The Abrahamic religions teach us about our relationships with eachother.
The Buddhist/Hindu/etc. religions teach us about our relationships with our inner being and our higher existence.
The Tribal spiritualities teach us about our relationships with nature and the planet.
Science, the other white meat, teaches us about our relationship with our physical reality.
Astrology, the illegitmate science, teaches us about the relationship between celestial bodies and our psyche.
Something like that anyway...
Seems almost like they all fit together in a way. Perhaps this is the way it was meant to be?
Likewise, I get this feeling that humanity will be stuck on this rock (Earth) until we actually do unite our religions/sciences. If I were God, this
is how I'd set it up: a sort of quality control mechanism (overcoming fear, misinterpretation, and division), followed by a quality assurance
mechanism (survival through an asteroid or other potentially cataclysmic event.)
It's very possible if we don't unite, we go extinct. We're too busy competing, bickering, and warring with eachother to realize that we are really
just sitting ducks in a shooting gallery, and that our Earthly quarrels are really nothing compared to the big picture. Our division blinds us and
If I were God, I wouldn't have patience for a non-evolved, divided civilization roaming around my universe, screwing things up along the way. Hell, if
I were an advanced alien civilization, I'd wipe us out while we're still stupid. Last thing the universe needs is a ignorant, self-centered, war-like
civilization roaming around trying to dominate things.
I'm pretty sure if there are extraterrestial civilizations out there, then they've probably overcome the alpha-male syndrome by now. That's pretty
much what our entire history and modern world is: a giant cluster# of wannabe alpha-males (and females) trying to mark their territory.
