Religion as well has been used to exploit whole races and nations of people around the world. Its negative effect has been so drug-like, that it’s being widely considered by many as the “Opium” of the masses.
One aspect is quite interesting and that is, regardless of the religion, it seems that the gods in them all favors white or light colored people, especially if you use the progress of nations as the measuring stick. They seem to bestow more progress and tend to extend more “blessings.” They tend to shed greater levels of power and advancements of civilization than what aboriginal Gods bestow, so it seems.
Whether it’s the Buddhists and their yellow looking gods, the Hindus and their light-colored brown looking gods, the white Arabs or the white Christians and their blonde-haired, blue-eyed “Jesus,” if one were to quickly take a world panoramic view, where is a “successful” black nation under any of the above “gods?” One must ask, how far out of the loop are we? Must we serve as step-children in any circumstance we find ourselves? Why is not there a God that looks like us?
Of the above, the aboriginals of the earth, globally, have suffered tremendously under white Christians, than any of the above that remain. But the question about religion still remains: Who needs it?
More importantly, from observing aboriginal peoples, one comes to see that many of the things relied upon by adherers of these religions, aboriginals seem to do naturally; for example, it’s uncommon to have to teach aboriginals to be loving, merciful, charitable, humble, peaceful or heterosexual, for that matter.
History confirms for us that the majority of European ancestry had to be taught these things ever since they came out of the caves. It is this that makes one beg the question: Religion, Who needs It?
Does the animals of the field have a “religion” that instructs them on how to interact in their day to day existence? If we consider the religious or moral implications among humans, who are animals to a certain degree, is it religious or morals for a male dog, for instance, to fiercely fight another male if it attempts to sexually interact with it? On the other hand, since reason, etc… is what separates man from the level of animals with the faculty of thought, why do homosexuality, promiscuity and bestiality exist among mankind?
The animals seem to have a “natural code” of conduct that’s built in from birth. Did the Creator leave that out of all humans? Could it be that a religion is needed when the properties therein are not hardwired by natural means. Consequently, how to be moral, good and right, or harmonious with nature, has to be nurtured and externally taught, because it’s missing by nature or perhaps filtered or grafted out?
Although this is a small book, keep this in mind: You don’t need all the storm clouds to make it thunder.
