Religion, no matter the geographical shade or cultural flavor, is a psychological fabrication of our ignorance; a byproduct of the place and time amidst the history of the human race.
None of the religions created throughout history - passed off as substitute truths of their time - ever factored in what would happen if we actually could reach closer to an (f)actual understanding of the laws of nature through subjecting the underpinnings of reality to our most rigorous of experiments and tests.
Essentially, religion is bolstered by ignorance and a willingness to bypass actual education for a socially accepted psychosis. However, ignorance cannot remain stagnant. The only constant is change. And to instigate change, skepticism must be practiced. Critical thinking must be taught. Curiosity must flourish. Exploration of the unknown must remain persistent.
Organized religions of power and influence today are experiencing the blowback of a society yearning for truth from sources actually proficient in the matters being passively discussed and placed away in the hands of an enigmatic deity.
Analogous to a black hole steadily unweaving the mass of a star within its reach, religion is becoming stripped of its illustrious dominance. This dance will slowly continue until our society pushes beyond the frontiers of its staple traditions, established not-so-long-ago with a directive based around uniformity and control.
The new systems of teaching, education, and communication are seemingly chaotic and experimental; however, we are amidst a well deserved overhaul. The transitions we are moving toward have become just as organic and specialized as the natural world we seek to understand.
shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
i just realized it’s breast cancer awareness month so here’s a reminder:
don’t donate to susan g komen. they’ve spent TONS of money making sure their upper management can drive pink cars with customized license plates and tried to sue planned parenthood for using the pink ribbon, which they stole from an elderly woman who was trying to draw attention to the misuse of donated funds, which is the exact shit that susan g komen is doing right now.
