Belief is a psychological andimposed condition. Mutual fear and The Nobel Lie is sustaining both Islam andChristianity by governments. They are using religion and the religious aspatsies.
The Lie is necessary, Platoargues, in order to keep a stable social structure. In Platoís mind, The NobleLie is a religious lie thatís fed to the masses to keep them under control andhappy with their situation in life.
Plato did not believe mostpeople were smart enough to look after their own and societyís best interest.The few smart people of the world needed to lead the rest of the flock, Platosaid. And The Noble Lie had to continue.
I have been puzzled for sometime now as to why the West embraces a pathological and genocidal God who showsalmost all works and deeds of hate instead of love.
If I understand why the Westchose the Christian God of war correctly, that choice was made and is sustainedby the pressures of war brought against it by Islam. The Islamic dogma of killthe infidels show other religions that that God is just as pathological andintolerant as the Christian God with his, believe in me or end in hell policy.The West fought fire with fire. A holy pissing contest based on the Noble Lieon both sides.
Rome, now the West, wouldhave had to have a different God than what their Eastern counterparts had. Romewas created as a defensive response to invasions from the Khans and tribes ofthe Fertile Crescent, Islam. As the Asian tribes relented in their expansion,the main enemy of the West became and is now Islam.
Constantine choseChristianity. First, as a ploy to win in battle and maintained it later, evenas he was not a Christian at heart, for his own self-aggrandizement as hisplan, according to archeology, was to usurp Jesus as the new King/God.
From there, Rome pushednorthward and promoted the Christian God of war on his ability to win battles.The West of today was born.
Unfortunately, morality wasnever the draw for this Christian God. Only his barbarism that was used againstall other Gods and most notably Islamís.
The fear of Islam then iswhat is still the driving force that explains the West embracing thepathological and genocidal God of Christianity. It was all just theone-upmanship of killing power.
Vatican II tried forrapprochement with Islam and today, progressive Christianity is trying to offeran olive branch to Islam.
Are the right wings ofChristianity and Islam ready to bury the hatchet of war and competition andhave their Gods kiss and make up or will the demographics of Muslim peoplesforce the remainder of this century to be one of conflict?
W ill both religions have whatit takes to return to the older thinking that there is only one nameless Godfor all, or will we continue to fight for what is basically a name for God thatall books of wisdom say we should not name?
Should both Christianity andIslam revert and follow their religious root, Judaism, and recognize that theirman created versions of their Gods are evil and reject them as unfit to ruleany peaceful loving egalitarian nation?
