Yes, they lie. They prey on your fear of non-existence.<quoted text>
Your gonna die, Aura. And you don't know when.
There are more than the religious preaching gloom and doom, but at least they preach a possible escape.
No, knolwedge is not some form of escape. There is no escape. You and I will die. A hundred years from now, we will not exist. Deal with it.Your group preaches "knowledge" is some sort of escape.
Knowledge is simply a good way to spend the time we have improving things for those who exist after us.
When I do not exist, knowledge will do me no good. But the knowledge I spread to others (by teaching, for example), may help those who exist in the future.It is to divert your from the reality of your physical existence WILL come to an end, and along with it, all of your thoughts and "living".
That "knowledge" won't do you a damn bit of good.
Look inside yourself for "knowledge".
Face your fears.
Looks to me like you have to face your own fears of non-existence.
