In pagan belief,, everything 'hinges' on the earth returning to it's natural state of being.
Will we be afforded that in you ideal situation?
My spiritual (religious?) beliefs are that Humanity Needs to extract itself from the damage done by Religion in God's Name,, I do not call for the
total Annihilation of individual religions nor their adherents destruction.
I just say they should take a back seat to what is at this time in history our greatest threat.
Self Destruction rooted in Religious belief systems that are geared towards an "End Game" mentality.
You are very correct, and I don't desire to see a homogenizing effect over the whole planet, except that Respect for each individuals Humanity needs
to be the first priority. I savor and relish in our differences,, as ignorant as some of them are and before we hand the keys over to any who would
rule others by their own Religious beliefs I am called to stand up and say enough.
There has to be a foundation upon what you are envisioning to happen,, and it is not happening given the current status and way that humans are
interacting with each other. I don't claim to have all the answers as some here proclaim,, I am just stating a point.
In the Future,, My belief (religion?) is that Humanity comes to terms with our differences and allows for the movement of various belief systems to
thrive under the Umbrella of our Shared Humanity.
Maybe each religion will get their own Asteroid to Terra-form and establish their individual kingdoms,,, while us Pagans can stay here with an Earth
Returned to Nature and allow us to strive to live in harmony with Earth. (this is tongue in cheek,, so don't freak out people)
So,, you would have to give the earth to Indigenous peoples who are not mainstream in their ''religon'. because we believe you can not own the
land as other religions believe, it is all Sacred and Holy,, not just certain spots,,, some have just gotten more foot traffic.
You could still visit if you like, we aren't all that bad as portrayed by the Major Religions I mentioned.
Everyone will Claim Earth as their own in the End,, so it is best that we work these details out,,,
I tend to do it by poking fun,,, and I can take what is dished out in return.
I respect Humans,,that deserve my respect,
not books that tell me I am required to respect themselves or the book thumpers saying I am damned if I don't.
