Religion Is A Joke (Part 12/100)

The term ‘religious war’ describes wars with religion as the primary motive. Wars in which religion is a secondary motivation are not classified with ‘religious war’ but still have religion involved.

War, the unending question against faith, is a negative aspect of our collective-reality. It provokes us all to believe in something more than humanity and its idiosyncrasies.

Aside from poverty, the fear of finite death, the quest for non-parenthood purpose and the requirement for optimism, the horror of war is one of the main things that make us want to believe in a benevolent master-being outside of our control that, unable to have logic applied to it, sometimes promises immortality, sometimes cares and doesn't ever control us. Of course, all of our numerous iterations of this concept of faith systems are completely incompatible.

Ironically, war makes us have faith in a ‘higher power’ but provides a reason to question its level of power, care or benevolence.

Please be careful to not say that a solution is a cause; that the cause of an issue can be its solution.

Sadly, war is a result of religious beliefs, more often than not. Most wars, if not all, have religious foundations to some degree because any perceived right to possess by a group is, in reality, supported by a faith. Even civil wars are fuelled by faith-based optimism. It can even be supposed that every fighting side in every large-scale conflict holds the belief that their God wants them to fight. War, albeit resultant of non-religious friction, is inherently fuelled by faith.

Let’s define religion as any shared ideology that allows for detracting action in the belief of correctness by the standards of a man-made personified entity. Religions are belief systems that exist as proudly suboptimal, the fear-led respect of them disallows an all-serving, all-pleasing, all-good and all-logical ideology. Breaking to fix, fixing by calling broken un-fixable.

Take the civil wars in Asia, Europe and Africa – Without religions and their reassurances, another system of mental governing would have to be found to stop the bloodshed and anti-progression. History would be a list of warnings, not scripts.

Take the Nazi movement that was born on anti-Jew economics/politics - Without religion, genocide would be a secondary solution.

Take WW1 – Without religion, the fight for empirical supremacy may have been managed through diplomatic negotiation.

In these suppositions, I hope to infer that religion - and the subsequently-forced absence of a functional system - acts as an excuse / reason for a lot of negativity and fighting.

Take the idea of a one world government, something you might see value in if true-aliens were to attack ‘us’ – Without religion, the idea becomes plausible.

Take the idea of ‘multiculturalism’ – Without religion, the term would actually mean what it describes and there would be less forces of division.

Take the historical expansion of Islam; religious colonialism with a death toll of around a billion over 4 centuries – Without religion, whole continents wouldn't have spent centuries at war.

Take the idea of Israel and Palestine- without religion, the stomach-churning situation wouldn't even exist.

It may seem that a world without religion looks bleak, from a distance. Good Saying: ”Things always look better in the rear-view”. 

Could it be that: Without God and his religions, with our powerful humanity left under another system that would be more unifying, we would have less reason to believe in such a concept?

That is true irony - If we denied the idea of God, we wouldn't need it.

What faith is in humanity to say that, without religion, we would all be fighting for greed, until extinction? Is that less or more stupid than believing religious teachings as gospel? 
Is that to say that humanity needs God?

Could it be that: Humanity’s idiosyncrasies dictate the need for religious ideologies and that those resulting ideologies, due to humanity’s idiosyncrasies, must incite division, conflict, be incompatible with each other and ultimately result in war? Then, humanity’s idiosyncrasies prevent the recognition and remedy of the problem, which is the result of humanity’s idiosyncrasies.

We've been set up…

Confused… do nothing. The quaking in your boots causes you to not want to believe in a good world without the idea of a god.
