All religion is corrupted by stating that it is not myth, but rather based on truth.<quoted text>
That is because the edifice(s),that being the the political monarchy and church structure were themselves corrupt. Anything built on that could only suffer the fruits of that corruption...and you(we) are witnessing those fruits today. Only when that is realized and admitted, can any steps be taken to rectify the iniquities, and any "healing" begin to effect. It is not impossible...it is improbable, as those who hold the abominable power will not relinquish unless forced to do so. That was surely recognized by a simple man on Patmos. The very name meaning "my killing"(infertile/barren /desolate). Such is the scope of corrupted priests of religion and politics.
And it goes downhill from there.
I believe it IS impossible to expect humans that are innately selfish to be anything BUT selfish.
And until we recognize our own selfishness, we will keep hoping that others will be peaceful towards us.
What a joke.
As an example ... for Christians to refer to their selves as peaceful and to Muslims as terrorists is why there will be no peace on earth unless humans become extinct.
