How did it happen?
I live alone on 10 acres and I have lots of time to think and weigh out how the world got so crazy. I watch news and when I see people who are in the highest positions of power talking about "God" and how he influences their decisions my stomach churns and I go into a cold sweat. I don't know about you but to me its scary, real scary, Its to the point where I don't want to even go out of the property unless its a absolute necessity. Why are people who seem to have some form of intelligence so gullible to this bullshit? I know that they are taught at an early age that your parents are always right and scientists have proved its hard wired in to our DNA for the child between 1 and 4 to totally believe everything a adult tells it. why when they get older can't they see the farce?
My belief is that religion is a invention. I've heard before that necessity is the mother of invention and I disagree with that premise. I think that laziness is the mother of invention, Ok I could say that better How about "ease of survival" is the mother of invention. think about everything that is invented is in some way associated with making a task or life easier. Im sure that when the wheel was invented it was a miracle to those people who probably had to carry heavy loads on their backs. Even the electric can-opener made it a little easier, the car, the elevator and so and so , think about. You may say well what about medicine? well isn't it easier survival when you not sick?
I can picture a cave with primitive humans in it thousands of years ago. communication was being evolved, the art of a sound being constant description of a object or act. The leader was probably the strongest male, who probably didn't have the capacity to make the best decisions, hence the demise of the Neanderthals. But a small guy with a tiny bit more evolved brain is watching as the others cower during a lightning storm and BINGO!, the light goes. "That is GOD" and he talks to "Me" and he says you are to hunt and gather while I am his priest and go between, so I do not have to hunt or gather. BOOM!! The biggest and oldest con-game in the book is born.
This earth sucks because its so obvious and it has BILLIONS FOOLED!
I sometimes feel like im in one of those zombie apocalypse movies and the religious nuts are the zombies
