I’m not an expert on any religion, and I’m, myself sometimes, swaying within the wind in choosing the one religion as my only faith. Nonetheless, in my opinion many religions promote brainwashed idealism in the twenty-first century are stupid! How come? As science makes advancements, humanity becomes evermore progressive in intelligence and social morals, us humans can reach and touch places that could only be dreamt in the pasts. For an example, the future is all about space exploration. When space exploration is possible, stars and planets that represent gods are merely just stars and planets. Perhaps, those stars and planets will be colonized by us all!
Nowadays, I’m seeing religious people who wage their stupid holy war as the ones who do not accept the future! Holy war is a relic of the pasts. In the past, science wasn’t all that active, and so we all thought the earth was flat and the center of the universe. How wrong were we, right? Even a blind and ignorant person nowadays can just play a science audio or video on the Internet that explains the inner working of the universe in details. We know we are not all-knowing about the inner working of our universe, but we know we got many things right! How ignorant can one be to believe in whichever religion that promotes wars and killings? Such a religion is more of a work of fiction and cult! Any religion is to be considered a religion in my mind is not capable of promoting war and killing!
I think a religion is to last for centuries to come, it needs to be progressive and open mind. If a religion is to last just as science and technology will last for centuries to come, a religion must accept that humanity is always going to be progressive. By this I meant such a religion must morph and change with time. As science undoubtedly discovers more advancements as time progresses, a religion needs to develop into less of idolatry and superstition and more into teaching moralities. A religion needs to hone a human’s goodness and not otherwise. In the end, I think a religion needs to become a teacher and not a killer! If a religion is to last, it needs to be a great teacher. A teacher who can teach peace and promote the end of all killings!
