Is Internet creating a new religion ?


There was a time when communication was limited and a few people could travel to the different corners of the earth and that too with spending a lot of time. Spreading and exchanging thoughts in the matters of religion was limited to a narrow circle. But now with the advent of fast information technology, people are freely communicating and exchanging so diverse ideas that so many windows are opening up and a real churning of different thoughts is taking place so rapidly and it is affecting the whole mankind in a very remarkable way. I think, this will give rise to a new religion,am I right?

    You are right,M T Dremer. Information along with trolls are going to leave a greater impact upon the psyche of the international community and religious beliefs are also to be affected to a great extent and something new will surely emerge out.

    Barbara, when I say new religion, just don't take it literally. What I mean is that people's psyche in matters of religions is going to be affected. It may be that a new word emerged in place of religion to reinterpret religions afresh.

    Yes, when we witness every kind of religious stuff in one place so conveniently, it is definitely going to make an effect on our own religious thinking and way of worshipping God though not apparently but surely in a subtle way perhaps.

    Lone77star, you made an excellent observations. A lot of tools, such as the Internet have been used as ways of promoting pseudo religious ideas. However, the internet does not teach religion or teach morality.

    Religions don't teach morals. Morals are part of a groups survival instincts. A group doesn't survive long if it didn't maintain the simple rules like don't kill each other.

    Thank you, Darrell. Do you agree that when in a market , a lot of varieties are found in one place, we flock to the best. Same is going to happen in a near future.

    Finding truths on the Internet can be challenging. Finding opinions, which may support your opinions and which may be able to quote some ancient document may help. but the "filers" are there. Whenever, you ask a person his opinion, there is a filter.

    ReneeDC1979, thanks for response. When we are free to allow different kind of religious stuff into our mind, it remains as seeds there, if neglected, it withers away, if watered, it grows into a full blossomed tree but it depends on us how we take it

    You are right,lesliebyars. What I want to convey is that a real awakening with regard to all religions will take place in view of so fast a communication taking place in Internet. Thank you very much for your response.

    Larry I thought about this. And it struck me that the internet may not be a religion but it sure as heck can be a church.
