    Do you believe that humankind will ever evolve beyond religion and into the Christ, God, Buddha or

    whatever kind of Higher Consciousness?   Much of humankind does not get the concept of a God consciousness.  They maintain that God is interrelated with a particular religious belief and/or philosophy.  However, God is beyond any religion and the religious construct and definition of God is based upon that particular religious authority's interpretation.

    It is happening right now. Humans are beginning to wake up to the fact that although scientists can't explain everything yet, there is still no evidence that points toward a man-like deity up in the sky that is controlling every little thing.
    The god concept is slowly becoming an esoteric way to explain what is yet to be explained. It has always been this way and the concept is called "god of the gaps" which means to say that anything we don't understand must therefore be caused by a deity of some sort.
    Eventually, our brains will evolve to the point that gaps of intelligence are no longer needed and we will realize that it is just a question of time and effort to understand the unexplainable.
    We once thought that electricity was created and controlled by the gods and came in the form of lightning bolts. Now we have evolved to the point that we can understand the process of electricity and have become dependent on our understanding of it.
    But electricity is not magic or ethereal. It is a fairly well understood process of the natural world. Eventually, everything will be explained by natural processes of the universe.
    I could only wish that it will happen in my lifetime, but most of it will not. The deity "believers" are fighting tooth and nail to hang on to their safety net.of "salvation", whatever that is.

    There are many people that believe in god , but does not mean they have the real connection , As an example Vanessa Williams many know the star ,the actor, the singer,
    But do they really know her , do they have a connection or bond, even her family will have access, but only she will know who is really close to her heart and who she will allow there.
    Our Heavenly Father is no different in these feelings ,remember man was made in his image.
    Yet we have to remember people create their own gods ,by what they hold dear from the heart,
    Their are many who hold the Heavenly Father dear because of the real connection allowed that many will not have by choice, or many have replaced with other things.
    He does not force his love on anyone yet all people still benefit from his sun,moon,stars
    The gift that the earth produce what we need to survive as humans .

    His love I is evident, what if these things just stop?

    No I don't. I believe there is something implanted in us, like a microchip (analogy) that causes us to believe in a deity. Humans, even separated by continents, have always worshiped a god/gods, some so similar that it can't be a coincidence.

    I have heard that Islam, especially terrorist groups, are growing because people want something to believe in. In a world where consumerism is the king, there are those that seek something more. We once held pride in our country, ethnicity, and culture, but with the rise of the information age comes the watering down of what we once identified with. I am not against pluralism, but not everyone wants us to go in the direction of a homogeneous society.

    With that said, I think that people become more entrenched in their beliefs the more they are told they are wrong. Atheists are not doing themselves a favor by pushing small agendas, such as eliminating prayers at school or tearing down war monuments that have religious symbols. I agree that we are becoming a more godless society, but ironically the process has been significantly slowed down by those who wish to speed it up.
