VonNoble Posted January 16 Report Share Posted January 16 The negative connotation is that religion placates the less learned into submission. The skeptical view indicates religion is nothing more than a wolf in sheep's clothing doing the same old greed and real estate grabs and power plays that turn human kind to the dark side. The more traditional versions promote judgments and a black and white world of rights and wrongs and good vs. evil. It fosters a mindset of like me or inferior to me. The hunch for some, is there is no longer a need for religion. Faith and hope maybe still of use but the value of religion long ago died but the remnants of the faithful are fighting even though even the find explaining it borders on credibility. If organized religion gets shelved, what replaces it? von Quote Link to comment
