One true religion

"If one person is delusional, we call it insanity. If millions are, it's a religion." Dawkins
Misguided religion has led to fanaticism and superstition. Predetermination takes the place of honest inquiry and truth is suppressed. All the fallacies of human reason must be exhausted or rejected, before the light of higher truth could meet with ready response.

"Let him say what is good for another, even though it may offend." The Last Reformer

"A free society must have the scope to debate, criticize, proselytize, insult and even to ridicule belief and religious practices in order to ensure that there is full scope - short of violence or inciting violence or other criminal offences - to tackle these issues." The Daily Telegraph.

“Your question is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I am not an Atheist. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable?

The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects.

That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelLously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly.

Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations. I am fascinated by Spinoza's Pantheism. I admire even more his contributions to modern thought. Spinoza is the greatest of modern philosophers, because he is the first philosopher who deals with the soul and the body as one, not as two separate things.

The natural laws of science have not only been worked out theoretically but have been proven also in practice. I cannot then believe in this concept of an anthropomorphic God who has the powers of interfering with these laws." Albert Einstein

"Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change." Confucius

"Argument is meant to reveal the truth, not to create it." Edward de Bono

"Tell a lie often enough, loud enough, and long enough and people will believe you."Joseph Gobbels - Third Reich

THE POWER OF PERFECT REASONING IS ESSENTIAL TO KNOW!

Here, free speech is a daily experience!

Readers discretion is advised: the truth offends!
"After religious teachers accomplish the refining process indicated they will surely recognize with joy that true religion has been ennobled and made more profound by scientific knowledge." Albert Einstein

"Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind." Albert Eintien
It is very clear by the above quote that when the debates are among evolutionists (lame) and the creationists (blind) nothing sensible can come out of these groups.
The result is "if there should be a conference among the most imaginative minds they will agree that almost all institution of learning are only nurseries of prejudice, corruption, barbarism and pedantry."

"We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made." Albert Einstien. It simply means, that he knew this much, that there is one religion that is harmony with reason and science.

Muslims claim Islam to be true religion and have since set out to annihilate all non-Muslims (infidels) the uncivilized way, by the sword. I also lay claim to true religion but my weapon of destroying all false dogmas is the civilized way, the pen. Indeed, the pen is "mightier than the sword".

I must remind all rational-minded readers that we are in the ruder stage of civilization where the company of the wise are very few and as we approach the end it will be fewer and fewer. Why? Natural Law dictates that progression is always downwards, so whatever grows rapidly in the form of religion is nothing short of blatant ignorance.

"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt." Bertrand Russell
