LOL at it being the "Satan's Trap" sorry that just cracked me up. Moving on..
To me, I believe, the biggest misconception of Hinduism is that it's considered a religion to begin with. I think that Hinduism, more than a
religion, is actually a philosophy of life. In many texts Lord Krishna states along the lines of "no matter what you do/who you follow, in the end,
you will end up with me." Hinduism, to my knowledge, doesn't really have any forms of sin, only self realization through experiences which may be
comprised of mistakes, and mistake is the best teacher.
Another take I had on the polytheistic approach of Hinduism is this; Like I stated before, Lord Krishna said "no matter what you do, who you pray to,
in the end you will end up with me, the One." I deciphered the polytheistic nature of Hinduism not in literal terms but instead a bigger
philosophical picture that cleared it up for me. The availability of many gods of Hinduism may represent people praying to different gods in their own
particular religions, whether its Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, but in the end as long as you whole heartedly have a belief system that
encompasses your entire being then it's job is getting done, it's somewhat like a guidance system.
Now yes, most religions have been exploited for profit, and Christianity is known to have stunted Science for at least a thousand years compared to
where we are now but in the end we're all "praying" towards the same goal; To be one with the One. No religion is better than the other, it's all
a trick presented to us by the head religious nut-jobs to keep the $$ consistent.
PS** Did you know that Christianity actually had Re-Incarnation mentioned in the bible, but the church during/before the Roman times took out the
excerpts because they believed if Christians knew/believed such a thing they would search for self salvation and in turn take away the power/$$ from
the Church? That to me is ridiculous! Now majority of Christianity doesn't even believe in re-incarnation so I guess job well done on their part to
