religion and beliefs

It was a cold morning, the cloud was ready to shower, and the sun went hiding. In a mundane sense, perhaps, certain questions began to linger in my mind. What determines the state or outcome of each day? Especially the aspects that are obviously beyond our control – like the weather, for instance.

Apparently, there could be a central processor that processes the events of each day. Such would determine the state of each day. Wouldn’t that ‘thing’ be worth knowing?

However, Science has provided answers through the use of satellites to study and predict the weather. Indeed, we can access information about the weather conditions for days to come, even months.

It is a mere natural occurrence. As opposed to the dark age beliefs that assumed a divine being controls the weather conditions.

As a matter of fact, the weather can now be controlled. We can make thunderstorms, clouds, rain and redirect the rain using technology. In this case, we no longer examine these through the eyes of religion.

The birth of religion

Most beliefs or religions were borne out of ignorance. Unfortunately, people still live that way even now. Perhaps, what people refer to as a ‘god’ might just be one of those natural (or even artificial) phenomena they are yet to explore and comprehend.

In ages past, when people could not comprehend or explain a phenomenon, they tend to attribute it to be the work of an unseen being or a god. And, when there is a new invention that invalidates their beliefs and traditions, they condemn it by all means.

As it stands, people create the image of what they seek when they can’t find it. Also, they build some kind of feelings tied to it, form a tradition, and indoctrinate others. This continues through generations.

During the dark age (still found in some cultures today) people make up idols to represent the idea of their god. They offer prayers, present sacrifices, offerings, and worship images made by their own hands.

“…if you can not find a god, create one…”


Why we seek for something beyond us

It appears almost everyone is always in search of something. Interestingly, most of us believe (or tends to accommodate) the idea that there could be other beings higher than us. Even though we have not seen any.

In like manner, many people are seeking supernatural experiences. The reason for this may be a result of a lack of material fulfillment. Couple with, the stories of people having unusual encounters with the supernatural or experiencing miracles.

For example, people having an encounter with angelic beings and aliens abduction. Also, reports of people miraculously healed of chronic diseases and near-death-experiences. Such stories stimulate curiosity and spark unending interest or hope for the supernatural.

In addition, the world is constantly experiencing chaos, sicknesses, conflicts, injustice, poverty, deaths, disasters, and several precarious situations. We need help. Such help seems far beyond what anyone can offer. It’s however, essential that humanity finds liberation from these situations.

Religion as a solution

Religion is an idea to help us overcome the challenges of the world. It subjects humans to a form of control tied to a deity or god.

As a matter of fact, it is essential that humans are not given absolute freedom to do what they like. Else, there would be so much chaos than we experience, currently.

Religion is one of many ideas invented to control human behavior. Apparently, religion has helped to reshape the fate of humanity. It introduced laws and order, informed policies, and promotes morality (or ethics). And more importantly, keeps the human race going.

Religion is part of mind control system

Notably, there are several religions peculiar to certain parts of the world, possibly influenced by their cultures. Most religions are quite similar, sharing the same core beliefs though in different ways.

India has the largest Hindu population in the world; China, the largest population of Buddhists; Indonesia, the largest population of Muslims; and the United States has the largest Christian population.

Each religion has its own history and pioneer. Probably, to express the identity of the people and the origin of their ancestors.

However, religion captivates people’s minds. It turns out that any human idea can become corrupted. In different parts of the world, especially in Africa, religion is a tool for deception, indoctrination, and enslavement.

For instance, Christianity was initiated in Africa by their colonial masters to infiltrate the African culture, command submission, and take advantage of their wealth. It is a means to orchestrate mind control agenda; to alter people’s abilities to make a sound judgment.

The greatest unresolved puzzle

Presently, what stands to be one of the greatest human puzzles to crack is – death. Why do we die? Is there a way to cheat death? What happens when we die? Can we conquer death? Is there a way to slow or even stop aging?

Throughout history, men have taken extreme measures to attempt immortality or slow aging. From drinking the blood of infants and maidens, sexual intercourse with children, blood transfusion, eating monkey brains, and raw food diet to cryogenics (cell freezing). All attempts have failed.

Religion is a resolve to guide humanity to the possibilities of achieving immortality as every known attempt had failed.

In conclusion

Humans can not solve their own problems. The advent of religion as an idea to proffer a solution has help to manage and control humans’ barbaric behaviors to a degree. It’s equally a means to imprison the human minds and the destiny of a nation.
