Here is a strange thought…There are so many who bitch and complain about how bullshit religion is, how useless it is….but what they do not seem to realize, is that if you truly think about it. Religion is the first form of science. I know, seems strange, hell, it seems downright blasphemous…but when you get to the root of everything, what does science do? Explain things such as natural occurrences, such as lightning strikes, or volcanic eruptions. Our ancestors did not have the tools we have today, so they could not possibly have been as knowledgeable as we are, nor could they have been so rational, for their minds were not as developed, twas not necessary. So what did they do? They personified nature, created Gods, and bent to the will of that which they did not understand. Of course as time went on, Religion’s face turned into a darker, more sinister creature. Christianity is most commonly pointed at, so we will begin here. Christianity today is known for, being stupid, ignorant, greedy, manipulative and various other words…but let us think for a second on how it became this way. If one were to read the original Hebrew Bible, they would see that this was not the intent of the authors, this being said, I was not born a couple thousand years ago and I most certainly would not have lasted the two-hundred or so years it took to write the book, so I do not know the original intent of the authors of the Bible, I doubt it would have been the spread of hate the Westburo Baptist Church is so famous for, or the greedy manipulation the Catholics are known for. If anyone reading this has any comments or thoughts on this subject, I implore you to comment, or if you wish to have a private debate, send me a message. I would love to hear the thoughts of those who ask the same questions. Cheers.
