Shall we believe what others tell us? Did a direct cranial hit from a not-so-random lightning bolt provide someone with stunning insight? Are you impressively advanced in a lifelong spiritual study? If so, aren't you simply believing what others tell you? I have to believe myself, even though it's a decidedly scary enterprise. I've considered the basis/origin of the most populated religions. None of it makes any sense. We are animals. Most of us try to be "good". That's a product of socialization, an essential, learned element of survival seen in baboons, etc. I'm not complaining. We're all in this together. I see no reason not to help other people, enjoy them and try to navigate life with happiness and minimal pain. I'm glad for religion. How dangerous would our lives be without that buffer against violence and mayhem? I harbor no ill feelings toward any devotee of any religion. If they've found an anchor or a comfort, that's a great thing!
