Where does religion come from? We all yearn to believe in love, undeniable, unqualified love...for each other for our own existence, and for a creator who loves us without condition or pretext.
Peace out my brothers and sisters.
Wow, the rain has stopped and a giant rainbow is over the top of my mountain! Do you believe in Karma?
Something of the sort of Karma, yes.
It is EXACTLY where religion comes from, but not where it went. The religion I grew up in would take that inner reality, and then translate it for you, as a method of mind control. Example: "You feel your heart pounding in your chest right now!?! That's God! He's telling you this is your last chance to take to that alter and beg for his forgiveness! Tomorrow may never come for you, child. You better listen to Him..."
Um, my heart was pounding because there was a grown man singling me out in a congregation of people and screaming in my face that I was going to die and burn in hell. And that urge to do something, that was my urge to leave. Sadly, I didn't, though, not until my 20s.

Isn't that the very same "emotional trigger" hat PETA use when they show an abandoned kitty cat and ten use the violin music while asking people to donate? The heart is not truly an emotional process center yet is seems to be where that heavy feeling originates. Humanity longs for belonging, love and understanding, religions are like GPS units that lead us along that journey we call life.

Thank you for the distraction, I'll go back to political crap now.
Post Script: as my nom de plume would suggest I enjoy all things philosophical. Two Thumbs up for you and my pal Tofy!

President Bush and his Congressional Republican majorities at the time cut taxes for everyone in the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. Indeed, they cut more for lower and middle income taxpayers than they did for “the rich,” as Obama calls the nation’s job creators, investors, and successful small businesses. The top tax rate was cut by only 13%, while the lowest rate was cut by one-third, 33%.
According to official IRS data, the top 1% of income earners paid $84 billion more in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000 before the Bush tax cuts were passed, 23% more. The share of total federal income taxes paid by the top 1% rose from 37% in 2000, before the Bush tax cuts, to 40% in 2007, after the tax cuts.
In contrast, the bottom half of income earners paid $6 billion less in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000, a decline of 16%. The share of federal income taxes paid by the bottom 50% declined from 3.9% in 2000 to 2.9% in 2007.
The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.
Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%. Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years.
Obama’s ploy of blaming all of this on the Republicans will not work this time. The public knows the Bush tax cuts were adopted into law by the Republicans, with complete Republican control of Congress and the White House at the time. It will be too obvious that it took President Obama and his new neo-Marxist Democrat Party to let them expire.
Enjoy the new Obama recession. You and your neighbors voted for it.

Let me help you with all this math stuff. The Rich pay 80% of all taxes collected by the IRS. They pay 80% of ALL taxes because of ALL the income each year they receive 80% of it. The 400 richest people in the US have more wealth than the first 150 million Americans combined. Let that sink in a moment. The first 400 have more income wealth than the first 150 million of us combined.

Since Reagan's Piss Down On Everyone Economics, the top have gained a 287% average income increase. The rest of middle America has gained 18%. The ONLY reason the US cannot pay the debt off is there isn't enough tax money coming in because of the Bush tax cuts and his over spending.
.
Speaking of over spending. Reagan holds the record for that. He increased the US debt while in office 186%. A record never beat so far.

...going by your above post, I don't think there's any such thing as collective consciousness, in that, if it isn't universal, it isn't collective, and if it's instinctual, it isn't consciousness.

In a dream it would seem
I went to those who close the open door
Turning the key, I sat and spoke to those inside of me
They answered my questions with questions
And pointed me into the night
Where the moon was a star-painted dancer
And the world was just a spectrum of light
They reached to my center of reason
And pulled on the touchstone that's there
The shock of that light had me reeling
And I fell into the depths of despair
They answered my questions with questions
And set me to stand on the brink
Where the sun and the moon were as brothers
And all that was left was to think
They answered my questions with questions
And pointed me into the night
The power that bore me had left me alone
To figure out which way was right
"collective awareness"? seriously? do we all need to smoke the exact same kind of weed at the exact same time? Hey, if that's the answer, I'm down and all in.
But I ain't down with Mr McKenna, tantric mantra talkin' don't move me.

You can't. That was my source of my confusion. Believe me, I've tried. You can't pretend something into nonexistence. You can deflect it, but it always circles back around. You insinuated that refusing it somehow kept it from being so. I'm willing to admit that I haven't studied it enough to determine what kind of filters may exist, if any, but I feel fairly confident that one person doesn't have the ability to do it.
(Your Mike Myers/Chopra/Tofy thing, sorry I have no idea what that meant...more evidence for your theory, I guess.)

Religion came from a combination of early man trying to make sense of natural phenomena, thunder, lightning, earthquakes, eclipses, etc...and the telling and re-telling of stories about shapes in the night sky.

Eric Snowden has played the Obama administration easily thus far, the forced landing of the President of Bolivia has set in motion a chain of events meant to erode support from foreign governments already outraged by the revelation of U.S. intrusion/spying on "secure" communications.
Julian Assange has learned from his own experience.
Edward Snowden likely used the Bolivian as a decoy...think he is still in Moscow?

I'm batting 300 so far, If I'm right on this...next up will be more revelations of Obama's abuse of power and Wiki Leaks will open a whole new can of worms!
Like a cannon ball off a high dive board,
Obama's popularity is on a steep decline!

I made three consecutive predictions on this subject (that I started) and all three were correct. My fourth is sailing skyward now! Snowden has left Moscow!
