Your central belief is based on "faith".<quoted text>
You are missing something in those messages. Jesus was the savior of everyone, rich and poor. A personal link to the Creator. His was the only message that allowed for you to follow your individual conscience instead of the herd and earthly masters. Don't go by the corruption of that message later by men seeking power.
I said earlier you got roped by a cult. You are getting egged on by others to tear down something for them, to fight their battles for them.
Secular humanism is a mythology. A Utopian ideal. The reality is the morality and what you are to think and how you will live will be determined by the men at the top, not from the bottom. I will guarantee you they will not live by the same rules they establish for you. Think long and hard about how societies work before you start dismantling it. A religion may be a myth, but you look at the rules and see if it is the best for the masses. Rule books change very quickly when men are gods.
Forget Utopia, get practical.
There is a reality you will be facing in your generation. Too damned many people for a democracy. The world population has more than doubled in my life span. It will do the same or more within yours. Your value goes diown with each new addition.
Bear in mind I find nothing wrong with this.
Do I buy into it myself? Not in the least. ;)
There isn't anything in the desert god myths that I find compelling - It may as well be Zeus and Jupiter.
Organized religion meh...
“So any adroit, unscrupulous fellow, who knows the world, has only to get among these simple souls and his fortune is quickly made; he plays with them.”
– Lucian of Samosata, "The Passing of Peregrinus." (2nd century AD).
Another thing to take a look at...
Hindus believe that Krishna was the eighth "avatar" or incarnation of the god Vishnu - one of the Hindu deities in the Hindu trinity.
Hindu scriptures state that Krishna "appeared in all the fullness of his power and glory." Krishna was born sometime between 900 and 1200 B.C. and his religious teachings can be found in the Bhagavad-Gita, one of the sacred texts in Hinduism.
The karmic similarities between Jesus and the Hindu messiah named Krishna (1200 B.C.) are many.
There over one hundred similarities between the Hindu and Christian saviors which could easily fill a volume. Some of these similarities are apocryphal which means their source comes from the extra-canonical scriptures of Hinduism.
I call this - copy paste!
