The Worlds Oldest Industry
If prostitution is
the worlds oldest profession, then Religion is the worlds oldest
industry! Now lets cut to the bottom line. Every man, woman and child
has the right to believe that there is a GOD!
Further more, it matters not whether people call the entity God,
Yahweh, Allah, Vishnu or any other name, the name is just a tag given
by man to reference to others what they are meaning. Religion is NOT
about God, it is about control of the people who believe in a God. Control of
the people is best effected by fear (believe what I say and do as I say
or you cannot be saved and you will be condemned to the eternal flames
of hell), and belief in God is the weapon of those who run, and
therefore benefit from, the religions . Once you have control, you have
power and money. The great misfortune is that the con trick
of religion is drummed into most children at an age where they are at
their most formative mentally and also an age where they blindly accept
what they are taught.
course, belief in God does go against logic. If belief also
incorporates heaven and hell, then the only part of that which is
possibly logical is that life on earth is hell and there must be a
better place. No man ever lives a life without pain, so this life could
conceivably be a punishment. Now, what kind of God would
create an earth where every species must take another life just to eat
and survive? If that concept is a joke, then to put an evil, lying,
deceitful, murderous animal such as man here goes beyond good taste. If
that is God, CB does
not want to worship or ever meet such an entity.
Now, with the religions, they all need
the same props, a prophet, a book, places of worship. Prophets, well,
over 1000 years ago education was at a premium. People learned how to
till the land and tend animals and cook and bake. Any 1 man who was
different, spoke his mind and stood out from the crowd could easily be
seen as a prophet. Books, well they were written by MEN, not GOD!
tell lies, and exaggerate (look at journalists). Men are notoriously
inaccurate when re-telling a story and these stories were told over and
over again before the scribes wrote them down. What if the scribe
thought that a story was a bit bland, wouldn't he spice it up a bit? Of
course, the teller of the story to the scribe couldn't check the
accuracy, he couldn't read! Places of worship were very necessary. This
is part of the control, you are in their house, you bow your obeisance
and then the outstretched hand is more readily filled as you feel
obliged. Nice con!
The problem is that, given a couple of thousand
years of acceptance, religions are so instilled in todays life that
they will never go away. If the combined religions gave just half of
all they were worth there would be no hardship or poverty anywhere on
this earth. Getting them to practice what they preach is another story.
We now even have the written word of some religions being twisted and
used as a reason to hate, bomb and kill anyone who does not believe the
same as the killers. That type of religion is seriously flawed.
Some religions are the actual government of
countries. This is contrary to good logic. Countries that are run
according to and must conform to unproven beliefs are unlikely to
behave responsibly to the needs of logic, as will be required if we are
to defeat global warming. Countries run by dictators will be just
as bad in this respect. CB has
his feet on the ground and stays with logic. If there ever was an Aadm
and Eve, then they came from Darwins Theory of Evolution and not from
any God. John Lennon saw the truth when he wrote "Imagine", where the
lyrics say "Imagine there's no countries, no religion too".
