A world without Religion.



  • I know that a lot of us have been raised with specific beliefs as to who or what we should choose as our god and that so many of us spend our lives living by what we've been told is the right way to live while, in my opinion, too many of us fight senseless wars in the name of said beliefs either online or in real life, but have you ever stopped to ask yourself:
    "What if I was born in a different family with a different culture?"
    Would our current belief system be irrelevant, null and void? Does it mean we would have been born in the wrong culture? I have hopes that those of us who will think it to not be true are ever growing in numbers. Not because it is wrong to have or believe in a religion or faith, but simply because, to quote the main character of my all-time favorite show:

    "No matter how much faith you have or what you choose to believe in, I know you look both ways before crossing the road."

    That is to say, it is human nature to question ourselves, to seek beyond what we've been told to be true all our lives. To either confirm or deny. Now, my words do not mean to discredit beliefs of a Higher Power but to merely ascertain my own beliefs that maybe, just maybe, we've all had it wrong and that our Higher Power is not high up in the sky but beneath our feet:
    Our dearly beloved, good old, Planet Earth. And that the only religion that will ever matter is that of Humanity.
    No matter who you choose to love, what you eat or which language you speak, as long as we treat each other right we may just end up making the world a better place for future generations.

    Then again, maybe its just the beer talking. 😛
    I should probably add that I love and respect every culture and religion there is as long as they bring no harm to men, women and children around the world and do not try to force their beliefs on me 😂

    Maybe John Lennon was right to Imagine 😉

    Why do you want to substitute something transcendent, something people suffered over thousands of years to articulate, and make the foundation of their art, culture and the structure of their being, with dirt, rock, and unpredictable weather?

    Religions don't just appear out of thin air they exist because of countless arguments, suffering, death, and rebirth over all of human history. They are what give us structure and meaning in our lives. To reject your religion is to start a war in your soul, your family, and your society. So you better have a good reason for doing so, and be willing to die in the process.

    You speak of love and respect for every culture that doesn't bring death in its wake. As for me, I love the individual, but not their culture and religion. Unless I wish to renounce my own and cause damage that I cannot fathom.



  • @thealchemst_m I think religion is being more and more exploited to divide people and create invisible borders in peoples minds. Tbh I don't care what your beliefs are, I divide people on good and bad, all other comes after it. And if someone is a religious brainwashed freak who don't accept other beliefs and cultures, then I just say I love Zeus because he is the most badass God, better than any other 😄



  • @what-is-this At least someone gets it 😂 Although Odin is pretty badass too 😄 😄



  • @thealchemst_m wonderfully written ☺
    What you say totally makes sense. I think you covered all the points n agree to everything u said so i got nothing more to say on that.

    Lenon's Imagine is one of my favorites!



  • @wildwallflower Thank you 🙂 I had more to say, I think I just ran out of beer at that point 😅 😅



  • @thealchemst_m this is a good piece to read, I'm sure I'd have enjoyed reading more 😁



  • @wildwallflower I'll be sure not to disappoint then 😉



  • @thealchemst_m post more topics ☺



  • @wildwallflower I have to warn all readers here of the controversial nature of most contents that will find escape from my mind to our virtual getaway here.

    The simplest answer is "Why not?"
    You mean why not the same dirt, rock and unpredictable weather that our creator bequeathed to us? Why not, before we slay lives and shed blood based on the word of god, learn to respect the first gift ever to humankind: the planet that made it all possible?

    The fact is, no one truly knows if religion was indeed created for the betterment of our soul and society. It might just be an elaborate scheme perpetuated by the earliest intellectual minds among us to extract some kind of personal gain. For instance, simple observations could have been made by one man to determine that there is a seasonal pattern to crop yields and this man could have then chosen to convince the rest of his peers that he controls the weather, and thus transform himself into a deity and use the fear of reprisal to assert his dominance over the rest of them. Not many would have dared to question his premises back then, and risk being deprived of food. The law of the masses is not always right.

    My point being, why not choose to take care of the one thing we know for sure is a universal truth? This truth being that before us all, was Earth. And that, through taking care Her, do we finally achieve actual peace and maybe even transcendence.

    It is actually because it is damage you cannot fathom that you should do it.

    The fear of danger is known to be a more powerful motivator than the actual danger. Danger is real, but fear is a man-made concept.



  • @thealchemst_m

    From what you have written, you advocate everyone worship the earth, for no other reason than it's been here before us. To that I say.
    Why not the sun?
    Why not the weather?
    Why not our father, our grandfather, our mother?
    Why not the legal system?
    Why not electricity?
    Why not Christianity, Islam, Judaism or Buddhism?
    All of them, have been here before you and I.

    So if you want to worship planet earth, good for you. I hope you find people to follow you.

    A world without religion -> The world still has a religion.



  • @thealchemst_m umm..I'll say feel free!!



  • @green-archer You do your thing man. Just FYI, I don't want anyone following me. 🙂
