Happier than ever before

It is quite the anomaly, I am happier now than I ever was being involved with a religion.  The majority of those I meet, who have foregone mainstream religions are some of the truly happiest people I have ever met.  Religions are preached to be about peace and harmony, but they lack one key point… consistency.  The widely held holy books are  very violent peaces of mythology.  Written in a time when disputes were solved savage brutality.  To carry these customs over, with the false premise of ‘doing god’s work” is a slight on the intelligence and the capabilities of the human race.  For too long have we let fear control our lives.  In the very infancy of our race, it was justifiable, we were learning.  To still hold to such fears of the unknown is a very childish thing to do.  Curiosity is the natural state of the human condition.. Infants get into everything, to learn, to explore…to mold their highly impressionable minds with indoctrinated dogma may please you for the moment, may ease your own fears of mortality  but it is raping the human race of free thinking individuals.  They will find out, later in life how much of a lie it all was and how silly/childish the myths really are. 

Not to say spirituality is bad, but it is a personal thing, don’t cheapen a child’s curiosity by instilling strict and unwavering dogmas that haven’t changed for thousands of years.  That is Dante’s seventh circle of hell, I believe… to do the same thing over and over and over.  End the insanity and grow.  That is the beauty of science, it is ever growing, ever changing.  Don’t be afraid that you don’t know the answer, be curious.  We are on the verge of traveling to our neighbor planet and starting a colony there, we need to get a handle on this mythological nonsense before people want to start spreading it through the solar system, that would be a very primitive and sad state to be in.

Until then, adieu…
