      Sure, look at any of the statistics, as people become more educated, they no longer tend to accept the myths of the bronze age. Religions will continue to exist if people refuse to educate themselves. smile

        I agree. It was my lack of education that got me involved. I corrected that though when I grew up. smile

        Beelzedad, being educated sounds good except for the fact of power hungry men and uncertainties in this temporary life. No one has all bases covered. Religion shall always be a natural part of humans. believe it or not! Religion go from counselling, rules, guidance, and consolatory to a spirit, a life, which is solid for all life situations.

          Men who aren't interested in education or knowledge will often drift to wanting power. Those are usually men who are unable to produce anything and must turn to ruling others.



          What bases? Is that a metaphor for something?



          I don't believe it. Gods have been found in nature, unless you can show me one?



          I have no idea what that means. Sorry. smile

      It depends on the word "religion" what use or form or context you are using the word itself.

      As in religious text and the belief in a god/creator, then yes it will become obsolete in the future. The lower level consciousness presently plaguing society/humanity will not last forever.

      A higher awareness will be required in the future. Should it not come, then the survival of the human species will be at stake.

      Religion will always evolve toward Jesus regardless of the faith.

        Don't you mean regardless of the truth?

        i disagree with you wilmiers...jesus appeared much later in the human scene...2000 years is just 1% of total span of human race..religion precedes jesus or kirshna or ram or any ....

    nothing stays the same....... Religion has such a broad meaning, many are not truly understanding what even the word religion means anymore, i have to include myself in that by the way.

    If we believe in god, we must believe if he wants things a certain way, then it will happen in his time not ours.

      i got what u say..but i was not talking about god..i am talking about religious god...my paradigm is based on human evolution and how religion evolved along with it..it has nothing to do with god..

    Mankind will always have a need for some kind of religion. Always has, always will.

      agreed...but that is my question...do you think like as we started and where we are know , for future current religions would either evolve and changes concepts or would become obsolete and new religions would come into being...

      if we consider human history..it looks like religion was created and evolved along with civilization..there were different deities , then few and then one..so religion evolved..if we say there is god..i dont think god would evolve...the early civilizations are worth appreciating because of them we could continue as species..and i dont doubt their sincerity in worshiping..so they worshiped what they thought as true...same like us..but we dont know may be 5k years down the line..there would be totally different ideas of god and totally different religions...which religion of present time existed 10k years ago..now oldest temple in 12k years old..so surely something was worshiped there ..there was some religion going on at that time...isn't it?

    Buddhism is a rather futuristic religion. The idea of no god, but about karma, good vibes, reincarnation, etc. It's been around for thousands of years, and I think in various forms before that. I think religion will always be around, but I think that's because most people are followers, not thinkers and evaluators. Religions categorize people into societies of like-minded followers, which is supposed to be a safety thing. But in reality, the forward thinking sages like Buddha didn't see organizations as a vehicle to spread their word. Their take was always that it's okay if the word is not spread and it's okay if it is. It's a personal awareness thing, and that awareness comes exactly as it needs to. So we should honor each person's path toward it.

    Followers and "worker bees" seem to have the need to be told what to do and how to live. Those outside these parameters are not usually followers of very much.

    Humans are a curious lot and also a fearful one.  Religion will always have a place until we know everything, which I don't see happening any time soon.

    Even if we knew EVERYTHING about the universe, every last detail explained by science, there would still be the, "Yeah, but who/what started the initial event?"  Which, given an answer, can be followed up with, "Who/what created the who/what that started the initial event" on forever.

    However, religion will be reduced to simply that strand of "reasoning" if the growth of knowledge is projected on a timeline:
