was reading an interesting article on evolution of god , from gods to monotheist god..now religion along with humans have evolved..from believing in deceased or natural forces to demi gods to singular god..religion has too come a long way..do u agree that as human's exposure is increasing specially towards universe and larger perceptive would religion as we know would become obsolete in future?
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.
I agree. It was my lack of education that got me involved. I corrected that though when I grew up.
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.
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.
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.
Mankind will always have a need for some kind of religion. Always has, always will.
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:

This is a question I have often wondered about. I was raised with a lot of exposure to different religions (mostly Jewish and different variations of Christianity). I would sometimes get the impression from religious teachings that we would be punished by God for not engaging in their worship...

Why God created nations and religions and why he made them to fight with each other? Does God enjoys wars?

I feel that believing in one religion is not practical. Likewise, there is no way of knowing if there is one God, or any God for that matter. I'm not saying there's not either, though I do trust science it only goes so far... Some things will always be left unexplained. The bottom line is that with...

What is the difference between a religious person and spiritual person?Where that question leads to is can a spiritual person be a Christian? In other words, does a Christian have to be religious?
