Modern Religion

Belief is dangerous
in its modern connotation.

Oh, wait,
this is a poem, so I'll kinda make it something that sorta
resembles one.

Anyway, the thing is if you don't believe what I do
or I don't believe what you do
(pretty much the same thing, eh?)

then we consider each other evil
and there is no room for acceptance
because if we accept evil, we're gonna burn or freeze
or get shunned
or bombed
or miss out on our seventy virgins
or come back in our next life as somekindapieceashit...

Understanding, on the other hand,
EVEN if disbelief (aka disagreement)  is involved
is a cool thing to strive for.

    "or come back in our next life as somekindapieceashit..." Bwahahaha! Yeah, understanding within disagreement can work out quite well for everyone involved.

    Agreed Nancy...! "the biggest sticking point is" As i see it ego,, next Media pressure,, cost control,, ( or the slave system ) then on the list human fallibility: which is subject to all the others.) the only way out is education,, then understanding of the power of self-sacrifice; and how to stop that being abused and misenterpreted...sooo its a hard one..) only a God could measure up here...! anyway hope you are well,, and now i am exuasted; take care,,, Joe..)
