Religion is the greatest invention ever conceived by humans. Bar none. Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein, take a number please.
Would you buy a stock you have never seen traded but whose price is based on your own fears and hopes?
Would you buy a share you can only cash out after your death but no one can substantiate its value or if payment was ever made to past shareholders?
In the real world, we call this a ‘Pie in the Sky‘. Pun intended.
Like we said, the greatest invention ever with an unbelievable story many actually believe.
All we know is that there is a CEO out there that none of our five or six or seven senses can detect. The inventors, now the CEO’s agents, told us he is up there, somewhere. Not a human, but a spirit. What the hell is a spirit?
They told us he is mighty and powerful, everything we are not, but wished we could be. Bow to the mighty you weaklings.
Through the agents, we learned he is a judgmental CEO, and whose judgments come through his agents. Agents who lynched the black people, beheaded the infidels, killed the gays, and sodomized our children.
A CEO whose vision for his shareholders is to turn the other cheek, but keeps your cheek beater wolf always on top of you.
No one has ever witnessed him in action, just orders passing through mortal messengers to mortal naive believers in a constant state of hope and fear.
A CEO capable of extending your life through promises no one can validate. This CEO can make you happy (hope for heaven) or make you suffer for eternity (fear of hell), yet cannot show himself. Santa Claus fable on steroids.
The CEO has messengers and agents for you to keep you believing and who, on the side, some also rape your children, or kill violently in his name. Hello Islam.
RELIGION IS THE GREATEST INVENTION
If religion has been a singular effort under a singular message from its CEO, it may have worked.
The problem is that we have too many messages confusing which message our alleged CEO wants the sheep to believe. And each messenger claims to be the true representative of the CEO.
Competition in the business world creates opportunities to save money.
Competition in the world of religion creates opportunities to turn violent.
As violent as the predators that we are, but who are asked to turn our cheeks to larger predators.
What began as an idea to turn the masses into obedient sheep for the wolves to roam free (Women under Islam, colonialism) has, also, turned the same sheep into violent protectors of their wolves, the creators of religion.
Let this thought sink thoroughly.
RELIGION PROMOTES VIOLENCE
Because of religion, not for it, man is willing to kill, rape, pilfer, and torture others to his heart’s content. Religion and violence are as Siamese as fish is to water. It is impossible to detach one from the other. It all starts by seeking total submission of the masses. In perpetuity. Just like Heaven.
In brief, we intended for religion to tamper our violent tendencies (10 commandments, five pillars). Instead, because of competition among the messengers, our CEO refuses to clarify who his real messenger is, which exposed the real purpose of religion: For the wolves to manage the sheep.
If our CEO really wished us no harm, he or she would show up and tell us which message and messenger to follow. Just like on Twitter.
In our humble opinion, religion is the arena where wolves feast on their own sheep in times of peace and feast on smaller wolves and their sheep in times of war.
All the while, the CEO is doing his job. Just watching us all in his own mysterious ways.
The genius of man. The stupidity of man. To actually believe in the CEO.
Religion is but the barometer showing the vast gaps in human intelligence and stupidity, strengths and weaknesses. Wolves and sheep. Power and money. Poverty and helplessness.
That’s our world, and religion secured it and continues to legitimize it.
Religion is the greatest invention ever. The whisperer of death simultaneously to hope and fear. Humans usually invent to save lives, except for religion. We invented it to take lives. Feasting wolves on feeble sheep.
WHAT IS LIFE?
Life is a coincidence. The right ingredients formed in outer space shaped under the right conditions on earth for life to exist. In all forms. Period. Just a coincidence folks. Just as when you roll a dice and coincidentally get a number.
There is no Heaven, and there is no Hell. We live until our cells die. When we die, we cease to exist. It’s that simple. Sciences are close to extending how long our cells live the lives. Maybe eternally one day.
What is the purpose then? Where does the universe come from?
Until we are smart enough to figure these questions, religion serves its purpose of feasting wolves on helpless sheep.
Why the most impoverished nations also the most religious? Wolves and sheep.
Is Khamenei not a wolf? Or the Pope in the Vatican? Or the King of Saudi Arabia?
All sitting on immeasurable wealth provided by the sheep following obediently an image of a cross or a black cube or some other meaningless symbol.
Meanwhile, the CEO has yet to appear.
It matter not where.
On the moon. Bouncing in a hammock around some Galaxy. Or even coming out of a Black Hole. The Vatican, the Ka’aba. All are good places. Just show up to fix the horror show.
Just appear to make us all equally accountable. The good, the bad, and the ugly. All working to follow your orders through your messengers.
Wonder why the CEO won’t. Because he is just an idea. Because he is matterless. Made of words and imaginative minds.
