Response to Richard D (Original post)

5. Organized religion has done their part in instilling the fear of death to control people for

the corporations that own our world. Theocratic corporate rule is the goal. Keep the people afraid and tell them a fable that will save them then propagandize the lie that we are told by God to consume the earth and you can keep the environmentalist at bay. Most Christian religions condemn environmentalism as "earth worship" and consider the people who do that as associating with witches and sorcerers. This has been perpetrated for so long on this earth that even intelligent people are deceived.

I am not an atheist. I think that spiritual aspects of life have become a tool of subjugation use by the powerful. The awe that I experience every day when I take a breath, see a beautiful sunset or hug my children tells me there is something more to life. We only know and feel within ourselves what we believe and religion to me is personal. When I die no one will come to me and say,"Hey, can I die with you?"
