How Religion Works
People want religion to work the way they want it to instead of the way it really does.
To begin to understand, you have to clear your minds of all of the bunk you have been taught.
These are the main things you have to understand:
1. We all have a very primitive telepathic ability.
2. The sum of all of our minds is what we presently think of as God.
3. To simplify, imagine that we develop through stages before we ever become pure enough of thought to actually talk to God.
4. Number these stages 1 thru 12, 12 being the absolute highest, 12 being God.
5. We start life at stage 1.
a. By natural development we experience an insight into a higher stage about every 7 years.
b. 1 thru 7 is stage one.
c. 8 thru 14 is stage two. The majority of people don't fully evolve beyond this level.
d. 14 thru 21 is stage three. People that constantly strive for knowledge dwell in this level.
e. Stage three is usually the highest anyone ever masters simply because their minds are so full of silliness that they can't tell what is real and what they have been told by other undeveloped people.
f. If you follow the progression of years you will see that, even though people aren't fully developing each stage, they still partially move through the stages.
g. At around 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70 etc. people noticeably grow up a bit.
6. People actually develop in overlapping stages, like a fairly solid 3 to a lesser 4 or 5. Typically a person is a 3-5, or a 4-6 or 4-7. A 5-7 is about as high as anyone ever gets because at level 4 they are hit with all of the religious dogma and its traps that inhibit their growth.
a. Those that are developing will try to reach back and pull their loved ones up with them.
b. Those that resist development will try to pull them back down to their level.
7. Religious belief is the biggest trap. Religious people think that they have all of the answers, when in reality, they are the most ignorant people in all of society.
a. They are convinced that God does all of their thinking for them. They are easy to spot; they resist learning and hate to study.
b. They are lazy, favoring prayer rather than actually doing anything to help themselves or others.
c. They would rather "spread the word" than actually doing anything useful.
d. They think that stealing from those with more and giving it to those with less is a good thing.
e. They think that stealing from their employer is something to brag about.
f. They vote for things that will put money in their pocket rather than for what is best for all concerned.
g. They try to force others to live the way that they want them to. They use laws and the threat of imprisonment to accomplish this.
h. They think of themselves before all others.
i. They believe in revenge and call it justice.
j. They are obsessed with dead bodies.
k. They would rather believe in an after-life rather than learning the truth.
8. God works through people, not through things.
9. God did not create any physical thing and cannot.
a. If you have to believe that God created the universe, you will never understand how God works.
b. God can inspire and guide and teach, but you have to learn how to listen, learn, and distinguish the good from the bad, the truth from the lie, and appreciate the power of giving verse the handicap of taking.
The Bible was written by people that were wise for the time period, but would be absolute morons by today's standards.
1. They didn't even know that the Earth is round.
2. They didn't know that the Earth revolves around the sun.
3. They didn't know that there are other continents on this planet.
4. They thought that owning slaves was a sign of prosperity and a badge of honor.
5. They thought that it was all right to stone people to death if they didn't believe them.
6. They killed people for being witches.
7. They killed people for blasphemy.
8. They still believed in sacrificing animals for their beliefs. Many still believed in sacrificing humans.
9. Women were considered to be chattel rather than people.
10. The people of the time lacked the knowledge and education to distinguish fact from fiction, the truth from a lie, fantasy from reality.
