RELIGION EXPOSED TO EDUCATION REDUCES GOD TO ABSTRACTION

God’s in the detail, the everything, the atoms that today is a table tomorrow is an elephant one day an unborn person. We are all part of God, within God.

This is facile.

The God is everything is pegging a feeling of transcendence when imagining this universe and citing it as revelation.

This is drug addict speak: it feels good therefore it is the solution, it has meaning beyond the self indulgence.

There may be nothing wrong with a life of indulgence but let’s not call it something it isn’t.

Moreover not everyone has a default feel good brain chemistry excited to euphoria by imagination or words that inspire it.

Small wonder many of the most religious, in a mystical sense, are manic depressive or bipolar. Heaven is what’s seen on the upside, hell is a never ending downside depression.
