On Being Right
The characteristic of a one particular kind of religion is that it is bigoted.
Those who follow such a religion will not accept themselves being placed in a common lot with other religions, as opposed to vague groups called Altruists and Anarchists. They follow their religion because they believe it to be 'right' as against all others.
It stands in opposition to all other philosophical follies.
But the reality is that if they could demonstrate how their religion is 'right' and therefore the religion they should follow, they would be in the 'Altruist' camp.
They believe because they believe as their fathers believed, and not because of any demonstrable benefits for humanity.
Nevertheless, supposing they are right, and their particular brand of 'god' exists. Such a truth is of no value to human kind, if it remains hidden beyond comprehension.
In any case, the fact of existence does not make anything virtuous, but only a practical reality that forces itself on to us .
This god may even be a sadist amusing himself with the suffering of Man.
Perhaps the Altruist is a man who can stand up to 'god'.

It's appalling isn't
Entire countries
You'd think a courageous leader might suggest, "Think for yourself"

Well maybe so but don't discourage speculation. Besides, what would we discuss instead

@RW Standing,
And how have you demonstrated benefits for humanity?

Aren't you a bigot yourself for sweeping all religions under the rug of useless and being ant-ireligous, wouldn't you say?

if you subscribes to a “superior” belief system, then what becomes of your belief system, at the point when one demonstrates the same faults as the system that you believes to be inferior?

respect, love, food, water, heat, work, place to live, and the non-equivalnece of these things is what creates a bias slide in any society, regardless of what religion you profess, or what you believe in, or what you think is actually true.

the problem is not about who is right, the problem is to do right or to b right in real

that is why honest people dont fight bc of different references or conceptions of what exist or how and why, bc they know that any superior system loved mean that u would act positively around u or that u r present high

so the problem is what everyone and everything too seem to mean relative excuse to stay still living of objective positive life fact
