the convenience of religion

carusmm Feb 3, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Religion is a convenience for the slave and master. Slaves are born slaves, and masters are taught to rule. Religion helps to foster an alien glory. The achievements of humanity are born of free will and destiny. Religion leads us all to the Absurd. Creativity leads us all to sanctuary. Am I or am I not making sense? Am I or am I not reasonable?

Mass control is a side effect of religion, but religion was intended first as a means of understanding the unknown and following what it seemed right based on it.

Or so I believe.
Definitely agree. Without science holy crap the world would not make sense! It would be pretty scary not knowing why everything happens the way it does, and even though common sense isn't necessarily good sense, it's very understandable for people to come together and believe in one thing to explain it all. It just sucks that they get so attached and unwilling to be proven wrong :P

What if I told you, not all religions are hierarchal?

I agree with what you said when it applies to organized religion
Private worship I dont have a problem with
In the end, it's all political

religion is but one means of fostering slave/master power structures.

You are explaining one opinion. There are many others. Whether it's sensible or reasonable is a matter of opinion.

Recognizing our flaws and taking measures to correct them is convenient?

religion is completely unnecessary when it comes to recognizing our flaws and correcting them.

Sure, but I still wouldn't call it an convenience if that is its purpose.
