    do you think it is possible that all religions and beliefs stem from one idea?humans being what they are i believe yes it all started with one idea that spawned them all they all tell the same story but in their own way so do you think that all religions and i mean everyone from the start of time right up to modren day ones all began with "one simple idea let run wild"??????

      That is the premise of the book I mentioned the other day. That all religions are derived from one belief that was corrupted.

      Very interesting and thoroughly wide ranging exgesis of most of the ancient Mythologies, Theologies, Histories and legends.

    I'm not so sure. I think each geographical group made up their own. smile

    Yes all religions and all religious beliefs stem from one location.

    It's called "shock and awe", based on consciousness. Many are in "awe" of how things work and cannot fathom the understanding themselves, so they believe that others are incapable of doing it either.

    It's called, pure irrational thinking. lol

    Of course all Religions stem from one idea, the idea of using fear and superstition to control the mind of the weak and gullible.

    Given the humble origins of humanity, everything around them was strange and frightening, especially violent things like volcanoes, earthquakes, thunder and lightning storms especially if such things were close enough to cause death and injury within the community.  At the time it must have seemed as if an unknown being or power was stretching out and punishing them for some unknown transgression.

    These fears were given names and became the early Gods of our ancestors,  rituals grew up to help appease these invisible beings, sometimes it seemed to work while at other times it didn’t calling for stronger and stronger rituals with the ultimate ritual being human sacrifice.   Of course, then as now it was not the spiritual leaders being sacrificed only some poor slob or hapless virgin.

    Religion is a power thing, control by the few over the minds of the many, Fear is there tool, Fear of an unknown hereafter where you are rewarded if you are good (Conform to the will of the religious leaders while you are here on Earth) a punishment beyond imagination if you don’t.   Neither of which has ever been proved or substantiated by any organised religion anywhere in the world since the dawn of time yet the gullible still believe, or should that be conform ?

    No wonder most depictions of religious icons are as Shepherds and their lambs.... How much less convincing if the picture was of sheep with human faces, which is far closer to the truth.

    the theory is that some 10 and a half thousand years ago or there abouts a civilizations stemed with more knowledge then they should have had at that time and before aliens  come into the picture no it is believed that an evoltionary jump occurred like in eygpt 5000 years ago and the understanding they had was so strong and so good that they decided to travel the world to help others it was these incounters that started the religious beliefs and that is why they are all the same today just twisted by humans who wanted to control the population which worked sadly if they have better understand of the knowledge they were given the world would be much much different weather better or worse i can not say but there wouldnt be so much crap and misintrepation as there is now each to his or her own not what was mean to happen.
    for prove i have none except the oldest south americian civilizations craved statues of strange men with beards and pale skin they named them vircochas and said they came from across the sea in a time of darkness to restore civiliztion after a great upheaval of the earth.these strangers with different names crop up all around the planet in what was suppose to be prehistroic times

    unification of the human race all human being are connected by the one single truth and the theroy is this early civilization who spread out had it and shared it but because of human beings being what they are it got messed up and distored til it has become nothing more than a question "why are we here?"........................but the human race has the answer it is just looking in the wrong place........................

    They all have similarities and they sould all be the same idea. Most of them have the idea of paradise and hell. It is possible that it all started with one idea and each different religion is just someone elses take on that idea. Its hard to know as there is no evidence (that i know of please correct me if im wrong) to support that theory but it is a very interesting one all the same.

      nexis 19 read a book called "fingerprints of the gods" by graham hancock it is an eye opener and recommend1 this is not about rapture or aliens the fact is that any alien life forms out there have not made contact with us for the same reason we havent none of us are that advanced yet as for the foil hats i will take a dozen andrewwilliams63 thank you for your reply and you should have a read of the same book it is very interesting they are not different religions when you look closer at them they all content very like ideas which is too much of a coincidence ie all religions talk of a great flood all religions have a saviour or prohet that walk among people.
      TMMason i am sorry i did not relize you had talked about this type of subject earlier and thank for the link i will read the two babylons as it seems very interesting and something which would increase my own knowledge.
      dave mathews the one idea is understanding..........understanding life death the world around you other people yourself it is the understanding of ones own ablities and how far you can take them to better understand why we are here and to better all your fellow man and woman and all things it really is hard to put in words it is something you feel or sence it is lodged in the human mind and has been there since the beginning of everthing

        The reason that no alien life forms have made contact with us is that if there are any out there ( and I am sure there must be) the distances between us are an insurmountable obstacle.  The light from stars obviously travels at the speed of light and what you see is millions of years old already by the time the light gets here.   Radio waves are slower than light. 

        This simple obstacle is why humanity is desperately trying to find ways to bend time and light so that we can find a short cut that would allow travel to the stars.  The lack of alien visitors would indicate that no other intelligence has found a way over this obstacle, or there are none, or they have no desire to meet a murderous bunch of psycopaths that send all their time trying kill each other.

          Radio waves travel at the speed of light in a vacuum, just like light.

    I personally think there is a lot of truth to this idea, i have heard a lot about different religions borrowing ideas from each other.
