Are we live in truth? or Big Lies?

2 years, 5 months ago

I feel that religion has soften me, thus makes me weaker and more vulnerable to this hellish world full of wolves and hyenas.
I think religions are only good for wolves, foxes, and hyenas to transform them, not to the sheeps…
Some religious people even are child molesters, this world may actually a big joke, and we are living in big hoax, mind-controlled by those sly people.

well as an athiest, I believe what you say is true. In my opinion religion was created to some what control people in the past and clearly it has been successful if you look at how long it has been around and how it has manipulated people into believing their religion is the absolute truth (gay marriage, premarital sex, etc..). then to address your point about child molesters being religious, someone very close to me was very violently raped. His attacker kept repeating in court, God will forgive me, satan made do this blah blah blah… it is absoluting no excuse to such a disgusting action. I feel as if people look to religion as a forgivness for their “sins” Im not really sure if this at all answered your question/statement, and I actually don’t think it did at all but just replying any way haha

Everything beyond the confines of your own personal consciousness is not real, because perspective is all that is & knows reality.
The famous Decartes philosophy “Cognito ergo Sum”, Think therefore Am, seems cliche but it doesn’t get more solid and everyman.

Everything beyond thought (I venture, even the thought itself) can well be illusion, in fact it’s deemed so, a great big lie put on for us by whatnot currently unknown. But nonetheless we can forever be certain, and in thus can only be certain, that it is the nature of our own perceptiveness that we can be sure of being at all.

I’m of the understanding that it is all there is.
