I would argue that Christianity is the only religion that is centered around God, because it is the only faith which teaches us we need God to save us
and nothing we can do will change that. Every other religion on earth, whether it's Global Warming or Buddhism, is Man centered, emphasizing that you,
and what you do will change the way things are, make a better world, or end your suffering. I'm not necessarily advocated for one or the other, but
emphasizing that this God v. Man centric religions are arguable and definable and if someone wants to argue that their religious beliefs or philosophy
is not man centered but God centered please do. And if you believe that it doesn't matter that it's man centered or think that more moral, go ahead
and argue for that...we'll see what the concept develops into.
Why cant it be both? We as gods expression are god, and we as gods expression are MAN; so in that statement "we are MANKIND" WE ARE GOD, or at least
individual microcosms of the concept of god trying to make a living, feed the family and at the same time TRYING TO EXPLAIN ITSELF TO ITSELF.
There are forms of procedural logic that disappear completely, when paperfolding is taken to its loftiest and more ridiculous heights...origami
monsters in overdrive...presumably (unless the pristine soul, before birth, gathers that dirty moss) there is some compulsion from one direction or
another to navigate the birth canal into sin; the implication is either, expulsion from wispy spirit realms (away from the bosom of the Creator), or,
choice predicated journey into self imposed sin (there may be more speculative reasons - I am open to it, but, only as conjecture).
Blood sacrifice happened at birth rinsed in blood and ambiotic fluids, we are absolved of any religious connotations. We chose to expel ourselves from
the wispy realms when we decided to incarnate into this heavy gelatinous existance, away from the AUO. We took the journey into the crap shoot realm
of the 3d AGAIN to resolve Karmic balance issues. Unless you were always an observer and decided to jump into the fray, (to see what the hubbub/buzz
was all about).
Once encased in the atomic box of slime (having either been expelled from yon wispy realms [reasons unknown] or, having decided to sojourn) the
procedural logic requires that you then become saved from a situation you were either put into, or, put yourself into...not strictly either/or...the
question then becomes...Why (under condition 1) would a loving God do this, when in the wispy state (before birth) safety was not required, to begin
with?...or, (under condition 2) why, when (before birth) safety was not required, would comfy soul (in the bosom of jesus) go from a state of safety
to a state where being saved was required...both under the threat of eternal damnation in very ouchy firepits?
Why would a loving God send ITSELF into such conditions? Its insane, its a warmonger or has too many parts that it can sacrifice a few million (at/in
a moments time without batting a molecule) or its BORED of its life in the non-matter nondiscript; Obviously does not value the small and
insignificant (human) (fly) "Noah would have been wise to swat those two fies". Not sure about the major religions, understand the geographic
separation. Not sure there was something else that ingenously thought humans needed guidance (IN THE WORST WAY OUTCOMES)==war, stuff like that..
The etymology of the word religion is a little unknown (perhaps its a secret God word?...that He/She allows even other faiths to use...don't
know...could be a good thread) suffice to say, most 'religions' gather themselves around one or more (sometimes one and the same) God/gods...from
which man emanates (where else do you think we emanated from?)...to this end, all 'religions' claim (at least) spiritual lineage from God...From
Satan?...I don't think I've ever heard that...come to think of it, I don't recall anything this Satan character ever 'created'...not even
itself...despite this glaring oversight - I am respectfully informed that the actual Almighty creator of heaven and earth and everything within and
without it...has had a somewhat sticky situation for at least since before that unfortunate garden episode...It's all to do with God, and it's all to
do with man...and somehow the two are inextricably linked (I say somehow, for effect)...
Secret god word, YHWH, Yahoos, Houynmhnms, Brobdingnags .
If its not a monotheistic God its multiple (pagan); any god will do. Why do we need GOD WORD in the first place; because we lost our ability at some
point to access (via telepathy) our ability to talk to it. We used to have it, its evidence is in our Junk DNA, our pineal gland, thymus, pituitary,
thyroid, adrenals etc. Satan (if exists) is just an 'Architype', or dumping ground; a made up being to encompass the NATURE of mans evil deeds and
thoughts. All architypes work in this manner.
'Centrality'...assumes a connection (otherwise things fly off into nowhere land) and positional nomenclature exists to establish relationship between
two or more 'things'...Devising an invented rubric to prove the veracity of one faith over another, is at its core, a competition to judge whose
origami monster is the bestest...Å99
Centrality is just another word for balancing the yinyang. There will always be duality, because without it comes stasis, no growth factor. Usually
its the negative forces that push or insist upon growth; not through decay (entropy) but through violent change, and only then it seems the positive
is forced into action. "Love Force Energy LOOSH" is so ignorantly passive its infuriating; probably because we have to devise the comedy skit to
outsmart the negative and that takes time; script writers contract negotions..and MI5.
