just another sleepy ranting....

sometimes i wonder what this world would be like if there is only one religion, would it be different? would it be more peaceful? it should..shouldn't it? i mean, what else is there to fight for if everyone believed in one same being where the same rules apply to everyone.

religious wars and disputes has been around for centuries ever since people acknowledged the existence of heavenly beings. irregardless of which gods our primeval ancestors believed, they were taught the belief they grew up in is better than the rest, that they are supremely better simply beause they think their gods is is the best.

even when these mythical gods cease to exist and replaced by other dominant religion, the mentality didn't change. every believers still think their religion is the best compared to the rest. there's no harm in thinking so...no, i take it back.. there are harms by having that kinda thought!

most religious wars, if not all, erupts when one religion tries to impose their beliefs on others under the context of divine salvation, that their way is the true way to eternal paradise but in the expanse of other people's lives.

i used to doubt the existence of heaven and hell (maybe i still do...), for me..heaven is when we are really at peace with ourselves, when we know we have done the things we're supposed to do..the right things, and the feeling of accomplishment would transcend even after death. it's just a concept...a state of mind or an incentive for everyone to be just and good in this world.

i do ask myself, if there is only one God..then why are there various religion around? i came to a conclusion that...religion evolves according to the needs of the different eras and in order to suit this need, the fallible humans would come up with different forms of how the supreme being would look like as no human ever saw the true face of His supreme being and what are expected of us. as eaons passed, some of these religion remains but the teachings has travelled far out to the other parts of the world and absorbed into their cultures giving birth to a new belief or religion :).

honestly... i dunnno why am i ranting about this kinda stuff, i'm not even qualified to touch on this subject! maybe..i've been thinking too much to the extent of burdening my mind with foolish irrelevant stuff hahahaaha. man...i'm just so darn sleepy!! hahaha

anyhow...the entry this time is just a reflection of my mind and is not intended to offense anyone. just live life, but live it right :)...

ciao peeps :P

ps: we don't really need religion to be a good person, we are born with the innate understanding of how every human should behave and yeah...we may lose the conciousness at some point in our life but we will eventually regain it :)...

Religion is there to keep humans in check. Unfortunately, for some religions, it makes human worse. ;-)

religion didn't do that to them dude...it's their misinterpretations which made them the way they are...then again, to err is human :)..

Maybe.
