When I think of religion, sometimes all I can feel is anger and betrayal. I think of all the years that were wasted as a child and all the questions that I asked that were answered by lies. I was taught that religion is supposed to be this wonderful truth that will unite the worthy beyond this life, but it's far more corrupt than I could ever believe. Religion has sought to contaminate and destroy the history of our world, the only world we have ever known and replace it with a dark and twisted creation of a mad god. When I strayed from the flocks of faith and took the time to learn the real history of the world, it was as if I had been set free from a life of slavery. Now I find it so hard to believe that people actually follow any dogma and all I have is frustration for those that preach it. How can they not see the beauty that is evolution? Not just the evolution of our species on Earth, but the evolution of existence? All I can feel is awe when thinking about how everything that we can see (and that which we can't) all came from the same exact place. My body was once part of a star. A STAR! How beautiful is that. Imagine every atom in your body burning so bright that it can be seen light years away. We are billions of years old! If you want immortality, then you have it. It exists. We all live on, one way or another, after we die. Our bodies will give life to something else, and that life will pass on as well until our home is no more....until what is left of our solar system gives way to something else.
The truth is this...the natural order and evolution of existence is far more beautiful than anything we can possibly think of. We are the universe becoming aware of itself.
