Yes, they know that the old religions are being brought continually into question, and eventually we will reject them. So a new one has to be crafted
which imbues more science, yet still foists a religious binding, which prompts the service of men into the failing Empire.
The problem is that the religions are not being brought into question by science, they are being brought into question by the observation of the
masses. People are witnessing things which HIGHLY challenge our paradigms of existence on this planet. And not just a few people on this planet
either. Enormous numbers of people are raising their hands and saying "Excuse me, I have a problem with this thing I saw."
So a religion must be crafted which denies these observations access to science. One which both denies the old failing religions because that is
inevitable, yet obscures our view still so that control can be maintained. So this new religion, is one of "logic" and "critical thinking" and
"skepticism" - all good things in the ontological sense, but things which, like a gun, can be used to accomplish malicious goals.
The overall goal has not changed, and we must always be cognizant of this, only the religion they serve is changing. The tactics, methods, arguments,
hierarchy of sycophants, protocols, penalties, channels of push marketing, policing, public beheadings, qualification for priesthood, domination of
universities, promulgation of thought, manipulation of the course of events, domination of the social discourse, definition of what is acceptable. -
ALL these things - and the ensuing goals of control - will remain exactly the same.
Only the religion they serve will change. Like an army, the politics behind them changes and the reason for killing, but they all kill and fight in
the same fashion. They are still an army.
They are still a religion.
