It always amazes me to read and see comments made by people whom obviously can read and write, intelligent enough to operate a personal computer, navigating their way through the Internet to read, learn and inform themselves about different subjects, come to the defense of religion, any religion.

Twenty First Century, we, the humankind have never had it so well, to know so much and be where we are scientifically, intellectually and spiritually, but yet we still hung up on the manmade mythical patriarchal Abrahamic Adam and Eve based religions.

I like to share with you, what I have come to learn about the defenders of religion. There are mainly two groups of people who vigorously fight to protect religion:

The first group; the ignorant group, are those who have been and still are too lazy to read the three manmade mythical patriarchal Abrahamic religious manuals: the Old Testament and its two derivatives; New Testament and the Koran. - Any member of this ignorant group will get highly emotional at the sight of any criticisms, exposing the truth about their mythical belief; they thereby quickly begin defending it, in an unorganized and emotional manner.

The second group; the evil master-minds, are those who knowingly and energetically defend the three Barbaric Abrahamic Adam and Eve based religions, only to protect their own social and economic status and power. - Members of this group are more articulate and for obvious reasons they pick and choose what to write and say about any one of these religions to make them sound believable and look good.

Lastly there are those who will not comment on the subject because they just have begun their exploration journey into finding the truth. - If you fall into that category, trust no one. You must read and reason for yourself in order to arrive to a healthy, reasonable and common sense solution.

Life is an educational journey. - The constantly evolving and changing universe and the life forms it contains therein, should be seen as what they are, a wonderful and exciting place to love, live and learn. - We, the humankind are in this together, we need each other, we need to believe that the object of our life is to evolve and learn.

First thing we need to learn is how to improve our social, political and economic relations with one another. - To this end we need the full development of every individual both the womankind and the mankind, equally, to be nurtured and developed through a highly effective educational system, association, freedom and love, in a supportive and caring community, - which means we, the people of the world, need to develop an all-inclusive social motherhood, there is no time to be wasted, we must begin now.
