Dispelling Myth and Speaking Truth

myth and reality word cloud

Since coming out about organized religion, which is man made. I’ve realized while looking at it from the other side. Man was I obnoxious! Yet in my time of reflection I now see things differently. I’m also free, free from holding on to dogma. I find myself studying more than I ever did before. While driving I was thinking what we accept, which is the bases of this writing. If people know the first five books of the bible as well as the rest of the Old Testament to be rubbish and the New Testament to be an fanciful idea; what exactly  are people basing their faith upon! That was the very thing I had to accept personally. When we can become honest with ourselves, we can become honest with the subject of religion. What was I holding onto; fire insurance. If we take a closer look at religion and culture, everyone pretty much believes the same thing, simply explained in a different way. What makes Christianity uniquely different is the myth of Jesus. He’s somewhat of an anomaly, he has no history, that is, no historical history. How is it that a man who’s come to be known all over has no history. He’s probably the most famous person ever. I’m not here at this moment trying to dispel the Jesus Cult. Christianity says “you can’t get to the father but by the son”. Paul did a great job by going to great lengths to create this myth. Simply read the books that are ascribed to him. My only point is, we have to be careful in what we believe. Look at the little imps,   I mean elders with their cropped hair and white short sleeved shirts and black pants with the name tag elder. I’m speaking of the Mormons. They give you their well rehearsed spill and afterwards ask you to pray; think about that for a minute! You get the idea! Any religion can say/do the same thing.  We must become more critical, but most of all; HONEST! Let me leave you with a quote:

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are
presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new
evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is
extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it
is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,
ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.
