Religion: A Profile Of The Flock

* Islam must past through the same thresholds and social rites that all the other theistic religions have, but religions aren’t peaceful because people aren’t peaceful.

* Theistic religions allow for man’s insecurity and psychological laziness to run rampant. Theism, and “God” by his many names, do the dirty work the “child” of that God cannot do with his own hands and his own will.

* Some people need to be enslaved or led: Many sheep, few shepherds. Theism guarantees that reality doesn’t break the illusion of those who seek solace.

* The harsher the tenets of a religion, the weaker it’s followers. Children need a good spanking, and this authority makes humans feel safe. The unknown is kept at bay with the assurances and words of a God you’ve never met. Totally rational and healthy.

* Religions are not for individualists or critical/clear thinkers. They are for those who do wrong, seldom do right, and feel unsafe in a world governed by cause, effect, and the temptation to rationalize one’s actions after the fact.

Life is like a bag of almonds: we’re in this together and we’re all fucking nuts. Some of us can’t hold it together.

Amen,
