religion is man

preaching to man

of his own perspective

in desperate hope

for  meaning

understanding

 

about the without

from within…

 

science is exactly the same

we all hate being told what to do
yet we love being in control

we all resist change
yet we all want to try change others

we all like to express ourselves to others in order to spread our own perspectives
yet we all get bored when hearing others do the same

everything in our lives is always only about ourselves

constructive, persistent, brutal, self criticism is the greatest tool to world peace

… could this be true?
could it really… ‘fade away’?

heaven forbid!

however, ‘fade away’ is a fairly good description I think.

… ‘fade away’ suggests more possibilities than a total disappearance
perhaps it may well fully ‘fade away’ … but it may never disappear…

perhaps it will just change shape…
perhaps it will simply morph into a new identity… slowly, silently, unperceivably, immeasurably

in fact, maybe it has almost achieved this…

a simple facelift
a little mystical Botox…
a little quantum ‘nip&tuck’
a cunning but deceptive ‘knows’ job

what if science itself is the new “Zionism”?

the new exciting world order
bringing definitive order to the previously unexplainable

… the new exciting world order
which at this very moment is seeking to establish its own Holy Land,
… its own “Jerusalem”

perhaps it even already has a new set of high priests… ?

…what does one make of the Richard Dawkins’ and the Neil deGrasse Tyson’s of the new world order?

the new religious world order?

…are these perhaps the new popes and televangelists of the new religion?
fading stealthily in…
after the previous regime ever so clumsily fades out…?

equally fundamentalistic
equally dualistic
equally passionate holy war lobbyists
militant pilgrims and enforcers of their own exclusive doctrine…
holy champions of the new state…
… the mystical mystery of scientific materialism

these new fervent revolutionaries?
encoding their own new holy cannon…
complete with a doctrine…
a new doctrine… like that of the previous religious leaders…
understood by the extreme few
yet enthusiastically liturgically incanted
by a vast body of mostly misinformed and ignorant followers
singing hymns filled with memes
flooding the reverberating halls of the new cathedrals…
the sacred, holy, social networking cathedral halls of the World Wide Web…

these fervent revolutionaries
in search of some hidden celestial cave in the side of some far away holy mountain
sealed for now in some hidden hubblesque probe
sent out there in the vast unknown, mystical wilderness…
faithfully awaiting some mystic goat herder-like space explorers
to hopefully stumble on the silicon scrolls of wisdom and understanding…

….and these new religious leaders too, along with their newly exalted order…
after preaching an unfathomable heaven for all devotees…
will they too,
in time…
also ‘fade away… ‘?

personally, I have never placed my ear up close to a fruit tree or bush and heard it groaning to produce fruit…
once the fruit is grown there is no need for specific marketing strategies or active selling techniques, the fruit itself has its own specific place in the greater system and that is that
no consciously prepared advertising slogan, song or dance is necessary

if you have to try too hard to make things happen, you are an illegitimate life form, out of time and out of place, a weed, an imposter, a violation to the natural balance of the surrounding ecosystem you presume to be your home

“I am not leading a rebellion!” said the mystic peacemaker…

“…in fact, blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God…”  he went on to say…

“for those who sow in peace will reap a harvest of righteousness… to them is the kingdom of heaven.”

“…so be wise and do not forget that all who draw the sword will die by the sword…”

“…however, do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth … no, instead I have come to bring a sword… I have come to turn man against man, and a man’s enemy will be the members of his own household…”

“…and I send you out as sheep among wolves, therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves…so try hard to understand that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens… a time to tear down and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak… for all things are made beautiful in their time … “

“… don’t be shocked,… this can be very difficult to understand.  … and truly, it is not in any way easy to grasp what is being done from beginning to end…”

“…when I sent you without money purse or bag or even sandals, did you lack anything?”

“nothing…” they said.

“…but now if you have purse, bag, and sandals take it… and if you have no sword, sell your cloak and buy one…”

“for these are the days for those who understand the times and know what to do…”
