Religion in this context serves the purposes of many various global elitist agendas.""Religion, comprises a system of wishful illusions together with a disavowal of reality, such as we find in an isolated form nowhere else but in amentia, in a state of blissful hallucinatory confusion.""I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. They argue that even if I am correct, and that there are no gods, what can the harm be in letting others believe in gods and goddesses.
My answer is that I have no problem with people believing what they want, so long as their beliefs are NOT used as an excuse to inflict harm upon others, extract wealth from them, enslave them, or to justify wars.
But those who hold such an opinion are woefully ignorant of the actual facts, which show that religion, throughout its long and bloodstained history, has been a tool of enslavement.
The Egyptians built the pyramids by promising the workers a life after death.
Lessons learned at an early age become the core of emerging personality, and even when recognized as being in error, can be unlearned only through an intense effort of will.
One of the most common devices used to teach falsehoods is the "everybody knows" method.
This is why, since the dawn of civilizations, governments encourage their people to be ruled by beliefs and not by reason.
As children, we are bribed to allow beliefs to rule our thinking. Never question, never think, never analyze; just take your goodies and go on believing.The world is not as it would be if there was a god or gods which could communicate their existence to the minds of humankind.None of the conditions which must inevitably follow the existence of a god or gods able to communicate their existence to the minds of humankind can be found anywhere on Earth. -- Michael Rivero Our knowledge of what we think the world to be is largely determined by what we are taught in our youth, usually at an age before we understand that there is such a thing as deception.No religion has ever set its followers free from the oppressions of the organized hierarchy of that religion (with the possible exception of the historical Jesus himself). I am not anti god (for one can hardly oppose something which does not exist).I simply wish to set people free from all forms of oppression and exploitation.Ergo, belief that one is correct is not in and of itself proof that one is correct. Likewise, if one posits the existence of a god or gods able to communicate their existence to human minds, then as an inevitable result of the existence of that god or gods, able to communicate to human minds, all theologies would be in accord, and there would be no need for missionaries, let alone inquisitions and holy crusades.
