Obsessions

We are a global society obsessed with, and possessed by, religious beliefs to the point of madness.

We are beyond the point of no return.

Our global "event horizon" will inevitably destroy every living being on this planet.

"There is no such thing as "beneficial" obsession, anger, or abuse, taken to the point of madness." quote by d.william.

Last night while watching the news we were appalled and sickened by the Muslim man who was arrested after a failed suicide bombing that would have killed hundreds of innocent people.

He is a married man with children.

His obsessive conviction to his religion is not admirable and is sheer madness.

''The single most negative influence on our global society is the obsessive lust - for wealth, power, and control over others.'' (quote by d.william)

That quest (lust) is extremely progressive in nature.

When "conservatives" try to blame social unrest on "progressives" they are correct, in that obsessive and progressively aggressive behaviors are indeed causes of social unrest.

But also we must realize that using the term ''progressive'' as a bad thing can be aimed in many directions - including backward to those accusers themselves.

Progression is a result of some overt actions taken by leaders to try to persuade people to act and behave in a particular way. When that 'aimed at' behavior infringes on equal and human rights it is a detriment to society in general.

Pushing religious agendas on masses of people who do not follow the same beliefs causes the social unrest, not the act of liberation itself.

In a liberated society, people live the lives that they are meant to live, and diversity is is lauded as individual uniqueness, not suppressed by fanatics with narrow minded visions of how the world should act.

"Progressive Madness"

Progressive by definition:

  • making use of new ideas, finding one's own path in live, or opportunities for betterment.
  • moving forward, or onward - advancing
  • increasing in extent or severity
  • one behaving in moderate political change and especially social improvement by governmental action
  • an educational theory marked by emphasis on the individual child and encouragement of self expression.

The realization that 'man is his own worst enemy' must be embraced in order to effect changes that are indeed "beneficial" to all people.

There is no single cult, or religion, that is truly beneficial to mankind by itself; and thousands of cults (religions) competing with each other is detrimental to mankind and one of the greatest threats to the stabilization of global civilization itself.

What do cults (religions) in general offer to civilization?:

  • suicide bombers
  • hate mongers
  • brainwashing techniques in children
  • ignorance leading to intolerance
  • superstitious beliefs
  • gullibility
  • grossly opposing points of view
  • wars, rebellion, uprising
  • killing, genocide, ethnic cleansing
  • fear
  • unfounded guilt
  • social unrest
  • teaching children it is OK to pass judgment on others

We find our entire world's people today fighting in the name of their individual cult/religion.

If this is not madness, kindly tell me what it is?

To epitomize that statement we can equate the following:

  • terrorists (of all varieties) = religious obsession
  • hatred and wars = religious obsessions
  • intolerance and bigotry = religious obsessions
  • social unrest = religious obsessions
  • world evil = religious obsession (synonymous)

Judging others

One does not need a bible quote to understand this concept
One does not need a bible quote to understand this concept | Source

When we judge, we lose

"When we make judgements and turn on others (including abusing animals that God has created), destroy vast forests for selfish reasons, and genetically alter what God has naturally provided to nourish and sustain us, we devalue that precious gift of life that every living thing is entitled to." (quote by d.william)

90++% of hub pages writers, and readers, write hubs and comment on others by quoting their scriptures to prove, or to make, a point.

These "points" can only be made to, and understood by, other cult members who share their own indoctrination processes, as if it is the ultimate authority on history and who choose to devote their lives to superstitions over logic.

But what they fail to realize is that their knowledge is limited to their respective cult/religion's dogma by prejudices and fear, through their own personal brainwashing as a child.

All cults and religions possess and promote these traits in some degree:

  • suicide and mass murders
  • abasement of women
  • genocide
  • ritualistic mutilation of babies (both male and female) by circumcision
  • hatred of fellow humans based on their religious beliefs.
  • force women to birth babies that are products of rape, incest, violence and those with physical deformities beyond repair
  • advocate passing laws to discriminate against fellow humans
  • brainwash children from birth as a "constitutional right" of mental abuse.
  • destroy newly formed 'cults/religions' for brainwashing adults as socially unacceptable when every single religious entity in this world is guilty of doing the same thing to their own children.
  • consistently and systematically instill in their children: fear, unfounded guilt, warped (exaggerated) sense of loyalty, hatred of anyone who does not belong to their cult....

There can be no disputing the fact that religions are the number one contributors to global social unrest by their obsessive teachings to the point of global madness.

We MUST learn how heal our world if we want to continue to survive.

Social Healing

The overwhelming superstitious stupidity is beyond belief and its irrationality certainly boggles the mind.

We must realize that, at the present time, the good does not outweigh the bad in this world - this is truly a human failure and a disgrace.

We expect government leaders to do what is best for all people; why do we not expect the same of our religious leaders, and of our selves, as individuals, toward other people?

We must stand up to tyranny in government, by corporate America, AND our religious leaders as well.

Greed and the lust for power and control can never be eliminated solely through education (or rather the lack of it), or 'prayer'.

Peace, harmony and accord (balanced interrelationships) can only be attained through education and public assertion by our individual and collective declaration and affirmation of positive changes.

We must force religious leaders to stop preaching hell fire and brimstone, fear and guilt, hatred and intolerance; and start emphasizing love and compassion, tolerance and acceptance, to begin the social healing process.

We may never be able to total rid the world of the negative religious influences, but we can certainly demand changes in what they are teaching to our children.

Instead of forcing the teaching of Christianity (and other religions) into the minds of the innocent children, and the 'magical' origins of man, our educational systems should be teaching religious diversity to at least understand the mentality that drives each cult in this world. And, yes, Christianity is certainly a cult.

Love, inner peace, tranquility, forgiveness, understanding, compassion, et al, are not some wondrous elusive gifts bestowed on humanity by some unseen forces in the Cosmos.

They all emanate from "within" each of us. No external forces can quell or quiet our fears, unfounded guilt's, or hatred; they must begin within each of our individual essences and accept, and expect, nothing less from those around us.

There are no exception to any of these peaceful qualities - we either possess and share them with others around us - or they are not 'real' or 'present' within ourselves.

"PLEASE" do not misunderstand this message of peace.

We must never dismiss, ignore, disregard, or debase, the forces responsible for our existence.

Those forces are not inherent in any type of cult, or religion on this planet, for not a single one of them is capable of understanding our origins.

We must always remember that "God is NOT a Religion".

Material life, and time itself, are beauteous and wondrous gifts to humanity and meant to be enjoyed by all living creatures.

How much better our world would be if we all believed in one God/creator, and loved one another. There would be no wars, no hate.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Oddly, the only thing that all cults have in common IS their teaching that there is only One creator. But that is where the similarity stops and the madness begins. Everything else they teach causes the disenfranchisement of their respective cults from the rest of society.

They say ignorance is bliss - apparently that statement is true after all.

The religious look down on those who believe themselves to be spiritual, calling them 'Godless', hippies etc.

Religion requires people to take on unquestioningly the beliefs and rules of another as their own.

Spirituality encourages the individual to use their own intellect and feelings to explore and come up with or choose their own concept and belief. In most religions this is considered a sin.

It is interesting to be on the outside looking in on a nation of people who on one hand fiercely defend their rights to individuality while at the same time often debasing the beliefs of anyone who doesn't share their 'correct' viewpoint.

I realise this is a generalisation, but as I am not American, I can only go by what I observe.

A brave article. Good job.

Thank you for reading and commenting.

And thank you so much for adding your insight into the real world to my article. You are perfectly correct about how religion forces their own peculiar and particular ideas into the minds of their followers. This is the definition of brainwashing, and to do this to children without hesitation is quite appalling to me. But i am a minority in this belief that religions cause more harm to people than they do good. They have built in fear and guilt mechanisms to retain those brainwashed indoctrinations through the entire lives of their "flocks" and from generation to generation. And when people like me dare to defy them they try to ostracize us as disciples of Satan. This is an all too common ploy of ALL religions.

The U.S. is moving toward the cult of Christianity at an alarming rate and its influence is beginning to re-shape government in a negative fashion. With that re-shaping comes prejudices, intolerance, bigotry and hatred. When these things are done in the name of our creator there is much injustice to humanity and ultimately to the creator itself.

Your comment is as allusive as you name. Both are too ambiguous.

I am increasingly concerned by what i see when 'rambling' about the countryside in my spare tyme. Many pathways that are infrequently used are still in a pristine condition where as the roads more widely travelled are littered with junk discarded by dumpers. The problem lies in the fact that some of this stuff doesn't decompose and i also see much that can be used over and over. Our resouces must run out some day.

Thanks for taking the time to read this rant of mine and leaving a comment on it

Physical "clutter" of junk in our environment is as disheartening as the psychological "clutter" littering our psyches by those who teach their children that science is junk, and religion has all the correct answers.

Both of those views are backward in the real world.
