Why religion is literally false and metaphorically true | Bret Weinstein


We have minds that are programmed by culture
that can be completely at odds with our genomes. And it leads to misunderstandings of evolution,
like the idea that religious belief is a mind virus, that effectively these beliefs structures
are parasitizing human beings and they are wasting the time and effort that those human
beings are spending on that endeavor rather than the more reasonable interpretation, which
is that these belief systems have flourished because they have facilitated the interests
of the creatures involved. Our belief systems are built around evolutionary
success and they certainly contain human benevolence, which is appropriate to phases of history
when there is abundance and people can afford to be good to each other. The problem is if you have grown up in a period
in which abundance has been the standard state you don’t anticipate the way people change
in the face of austerity. And so what we are currently seeing is messages
that we have all agreed are unacceptable reemerging because the signals that we have reached the
end of the boom times, those signals are everywhere, and so people are triggered to move into a
phase that they don’t even know that they have. Despite the fact that human beings think that
they have escaped the evolutionary paradigm they’ve done nothing of the kind, and so
we should expect the belief systems that people hold to mirror the evolutionary interests
that people have rather than to match our best instincts—when we are capable of being
good to each other because there’s abundance, we have those instincts and so it’s not
incorrect to say that human beings are capable of being marvelous creatures and being quite
ethical. Now I would argue there’s a simple way of
reconciling the correct understanding that religious belief often describes truths that,
in many cases, fly in the face of what we can understand scientifically, with the idea
that these beliefs are adaptive. I call it the state of being literally false
and metaphorically true. A belief is literally false and metaphorically
true if it is not factual but if behaving as if it were factual results in an enhancement
of one’s fitness. To take an example, if one behaves in let’s
say the Christian tradition in such a way as to gain access to heaven one will not actually
find themselves at the pearly gates being welcomed in, but one does tend to place their
descendants in a good position with respect to the community that those descendants continue
to live in. So if we were to think evolutionarily, the
person who is behaving so as to get into heaven has genetic interests. Those genetic interests are represented in
the narrow sense by their immediate descendants and close relatives, in the larger sense they
may be represented by the entire population of people from whom that individual came,
and by acting so as to get into heaven, the fitness of that person, the number of copies
of those genes that continue to flourish in the aftermath of that person’s death will
go up. So the belief in heaven is literally false—there
is no such place—but it is metaphorically true in the sense that it results in an increase
in fitness.

  1. So basically if you find ethical and benevolent ways to live your life you can believe anything you want. That’s ridiculous because it downplays the fact that people are taking in religion at face value. Ignorance as bliss is not the answer

  2. 1 Corinthians 1:18-19 (KJV)
    18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

    The above verses have since turned a favorite of mine in the threads of documentation of the bloodline of Christ Jesus, which has since been compiled into the book we now cast as the Bible.

    I used to be atheist myself. But I had a sincere and objective experience with God. And it came with the breaking up of a lot of propaganda and my own personal rebellion. You can continue deflecting and continue in your sin, but you’ll nonetheless face your Creator on Judgment Day. This is fact.

    My Testimony to Jesus Christ:

    I wish well you do not disregard what you are about to read as mere jargon from some disenfranchised ex-atheist or some tool of mindless proportions whose defense for his set faith is based solely upon a Southern-based upbringing. I hope you’ll listen.

    I rejected the notion of God some years back. Chucked it up to total fable and a feel-good falsehood for those who feared death and the uncertainty which that entails from the unknown, unseen. I’ve since read from the mouth of the Four Horsemen of Atheism – Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, the late Christopher Hitchens – and indulged in the extensive debates, lectures and emotionally-fueled rambling of others (Lawrence Krauss, Dan Barker) to justify my rejection of theism; especially that of the Christian God. And yes, much was fueled by emotion rather than logic.

    The first seed of doubt came in the form of a video. The Zeitgeist documentary to put specifics here. I watched as my own Lord was compared to the likes of Mithra, Horus and others. A solid gut-punch to the mind yet exposed, or challenged, and doubt had taken root within, which later blossomed into full-fledged atheism.

    More on that here: https://youtu.be/muM7Uk40iRE Producer usually refers to several written works to further one’s knowledge in this area of Pagan myth.

    And several years later from the date of that video footage, I began to shed the skins of belief. From Christian, to agnostic, to professed atheist. I had reached a fine-tuned level of rationality. And, yes, I did boast internally of my garnered wisdom. For all those around me were, in my own words: delusional, stupid, weak-minded, brainwashed. And I was all the wiser for my separation from unproven religious dogma.

    Romans 1:22-24 (KJV)
    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. . .

    It wasn’t until one day I came into contact with a gentleman who was of the LHP (Left-Hand Path). At first, I was genuinely terrified. The underlining reasoning is now clear to me: I did not fully disbelieve in the spiritual realm. But that was not due to my human intellect but something different. The separation of human wisdom (naturally weak) and the spirit (the core of every man) confounded me. My consciousness was startled by this engagement. And so it was that we began a fairly regular dialogue, working alongside one another, until I decided to further my studies in this direction. That led me to purchase The Satanic Bible. Later, The Satanic Scriptures. This sparks many to further themselves into spirituality again – theistic Satanism, Luciferianism, witchcraft, voodoo, etc. I was no exception. My hesitation laid heavily upon me for fear of the unknown. But I persisted into the dark because the idea of another man conveying to me his line of truth did not sit well with my natural contrarian mentality. And so I indulged my desires.

    It’s interesting that within the same house I rejected God did other severe struggles emerge. Alcoholism is the primary culprit. Topped on with another variety of ill-gotten gifts: depression, suicidal tendencies, self-harm and a deep sense of dissatisfaction for simply being alive. It is easy for the non-believer to disregard even a testimony and attribute it to mental illness or any other means of convenience. Convenient because it allows one to disregard every case, every story, every person to simply being a blinded fool hell-bent on delusion. For some, perhaps. You can choose from this point onward where you rest on such manners.

    It’s heading into the third month since I have given my life over to Christ. I said the prayer of salvation (or the sinner’s prayer), repented of my sins and accepted Christ as my personal Lord and savior. This may have many reading this smirking or scoffing or constructing thoughts at the absurdity of such things, no? It certainly would’ve as my former self. It’s easier that way for one thing than to ever consider the possibility that my mortal decisions on this planet earn me consequences in the Hereafter.

    The Occult is a means to seek hidden wisdom. I now find this amusing because, in part, it can be true. But claiming the hidden as wisdom is not necessarily so. It is a facade, a trap, a means to suck in the gullible and those who reject the herd-like mindset of modern-day man. True wisdom, however, is hidden to the carnal man. The carnal existence cannot grasp things which are hidden in the other realm.

    1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
    14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

    Let me divulge here what happened to me the following month after accepting Christ as Lord over my life. The heavy depression ceased. My overbearing lust decreased, my frequent outburst of anger diminished, my suicidal thoughts and tendencies were subdued, self-harm was subdued and that inner loneliness ceased for I was content with just being alive. Another very intriguing thing happened. I felt a very familiar presence come back into me that I hadn’t felt since my youth when I was in Christ Jesus. All these things occurred not by my own accord. There was no medication nor meditation. It was not some change in brain chemistry or my own willpower which led to this radical change. I attempted no such thing. Also, about seven months earlier I overcame alcohol abuse. I still recall the impact memory of driving up a hill toward work, early morning, crying out to Christ if He be real. Yes, I groveled for help into the unseen arena. This is perceived as weakness to those of the LHP. I personally consider ignorance topped on with arrogance to be amongst the greatest of weakness in this world today.

    Given the intel just provided, I am well accustomed to the excuses and ‘rational’ explanations of such things. They are of foolish thought and weak intellect. Man is continuously insistent he is wise. He is not. His inability to recognize that alone is at his own peril while he scoffs and mocks like a million souls before him. It’s nothing new, nothing close to birthing originality. As it is written:

    Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJV)
    9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

    To speak now directly to your intellect, I wish well you consider this material for purchase: https://m.booksamillion.com/p/Dont-Enough-Faith-Be-Atheist/Norman-L-Geisler/9781581345612 If you’re looking for a logical approach to the existence of God, then this may be a place worth investigating. Truth fears no investigation, yes?

    The gap between the DNA of ape and man is far greater than the secular saints shall ever confess. So, how did life originate and who is responsible? The Bible is historically accurate in the rulers it names and specific tribes. This alone proves nothing. But it’s a start toward something for those who seek real, valuable knowledge. If you seek after wisdom and Truth, then there isn’t any reason to deny yourself this journey.

    Consider this article as well: https://alwaysbeready.com/bible-evidence?id=99

    If you need a history lesson on how parts of the Bible were formed, along with soothing any doubts about their authenticity, then perhaps start here: https://youtu.be/5hItK8IY-Us

    I believed this all to be mere fiction. Even still it rings of foolishness to the natural mind. People do not rise from the dead. It just doesn’t happen. But if it did – even just once – I’d spend a lot more time investigating that than scoffing and attacking it because of whatever moral (or perceived intellectual) objection I had to it.

    Consider for a moment you were blind to something which actually existed. Why would that be?

    2 Corinthians 4:4 – In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    I know how it feels to be literally unable to see the Truth or experience God. The wonderful thing is that you can experience His love and mercy and grace. You reject it at your own peril. Eternal love and goodness is complete by eternal justice. No person in all the Earth is good. That’s why the cross is there for those who seek forgiveness and repent. Below are two testimonies I personally found to be rather moving. What’d you think happened to those people, and what happened to me?

    Testimony from an Ex-Atheist: https://youtu.be/L1C_1fgM2ck

    Testimony to Jesus Christ: https://youtu.be/ClZKJI8RvI4

    Reflect.

  3. Lets talk about Jesus and Moses, what were they talking about it, were they insane, or were they liars, do you think that Mary was raped by someone and created the story of religion etc so she won't get killed?
    I am not religious and I slowly leaving my religion, I may not leave it 100% but I'm the least religious person youll meet.
    But whats the truth of what happened to Juses and Moses and Muhammed, were they liars or were they insane?

  4. to the people who don’t believe in God or are questioning God— The how can super small particles create the Big Bang and then create the earth and have everything systematically perfect to substatin life for over millions of years, there has to be a mind behind the earth everything is to perfect to be made from a chain of energy explosion

  5. God is a myth, just like the Gods of the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. Everyone says they were myths and legends but try to say a God no-one has ever seen is real. I don't want to burst your bubble but when you die there is no heaven. You get buried or burnt that's it no after life.

  6. And they might even be backwards …if you read the three monotheistic faiths and critical think it becomes a different reality or story ..as if our consciousness is making a God ..we are doing the events but it's hard to tell because we are in the matrix so to speak ..start with Islam and end at Judaism and see what happens ….

  7. I don't mean to insult anyone or make them question their religion, but everything about God, Holy Bible or just anything supernatural that cannot be proved, is something I'll never believe in and will never support, since if I have the chance, I always go with the more logical way. I think that religion in general was created in order to get money from people… Tho I said all this, I think it's nice and important to have faith in something.

  8. To all those logical and scientific people who have commented. I want all of u to to come to the east and study the true eastern culture. it might be relevant to call the western perception on religion as a belief system but not for sanatan dharma AKA hinduism and Buddhism. Because once u know its true nature u will find it the most scientific and logical tradition because here in the east we never believed in the so called belief system but we always were seeker just like the scientist who are seeking to solve the mystery of the universe.

  9. For someone who needs evidence, you certainly are quick to dismiss heaven. Tell me, where is your scientific data showing that heaven isn't real

  10. One truth: Epicurus

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing?
    Then why call him God

  11. What boom times is he referring to when he says "the end of the boom times"? I am assuming he is referring to the boom times of religion coming to an end. It appears to me that the people who are benefiting the most off of religion are the ones stirring the pot. They realize that the belief in the supernatural is slowly dying so they must rally the troops, so to speak, to save their livelihood. Which is basically to say they try to bring back the worst in religion which is a return to fundamentalism. We see it in our politics as well as the religious community. The rejection of intellectuals, higher education, science,… anything that threatens their way of life. I would not be surprised if we started to see literal book burnings in the streets.

  12. LORD JESUS is not religion , LORD JESUS IS GOD ❤️ ADONAI JAHVE ❤️ ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN !!! GOD is Spirit , JESUS was GOD in Flesh on Earth 🌍 LORD JESUS WIN ON CROSS FOR US !!! Please Repent IN JESUS NAME ❤️ ADONAI❤️ No more time

  13. the apostles were real people …..(Paul was a devoted Jew and used to kill Christians and then he saw Jesus Christ after his resurrection and then changed to Christianity)…… Something that probably would not happen back then unless you had good reason….(and then Paul went on to baptize the emperor of Rome this is a recorded fact )…… Why would you go from being praised by the Jewish people to becoming an outcast?… Basically why would you go from being rich to poor?… And turn your back on your God?…… He would have been Outcast by the other Jewish people…….so why?….. how did he preach the message of Jesus Christ so wellif he never knew Jesus or God?

  14. Another something comes from nothing video. Einstein believed in GOD and compare his brain to yours, your pitiful.

  15. This man tries to scare people off with these big fancy words but really he’s not making much logical sense at all.

  16. These the same race of people who said blacks were not human beings…now they get to say who is decent and who is not????civil war is not an excuse for whites not to be punished for what they did…the only punishment left is for all whites to leave amerca for all the blood they shed here since they got here…slavery or no slavery…the human thing to do is LEAVE BECAUSE your people did wrong…so to nt benifit from those wrongs….the human thing to do is to LEAVE and go start a fresh unslaved place elsewhere

  17. What he's saying is pretty obvious to any thinking person. It's not like he's reinventing the wheel here, folks. If you don't understand, it might be time for you to read more books.

  18. Acts 17:27

    that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

    He is not visible, but he is very, very tangible.
    After faith follows evidence — just like science!

  19. I love this guy Although I understand why he says that . Although he thinks he used toyou didn’t go he thinks it’s true If religion is not true please ask God God will answer you Call him out You know I reply

  20. Another tiresome intellectual dark web member, Big Think? What's the matter? Afraid you'll be called a bunch of cucks who despise Western civilization?

  21. Dear friends,

    I hold a bachelors in philosophy and I am a licensed attorney, so I feel academically fit to tell you that after reading the Bible, I can tell you that God is real and Jesus Christ is real.

    Please read throughly and praise our God, Yeshua (Jesus).

    The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of satan & Salvation through The Messiah, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The Holy One of God.

    The Kingdom of Heaven-

    There are two kingdoms at hand, on one hand The Kingdom of God, that through Jesus Christ brings salvation to many. The Kingdom of God is ruled by The Almighty God, The Great I am, The Alpha and The Omega. In God there is no darkness for he is The Perfect Father. “This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.“ 1 John 1:5.
    “I am your PERFECT FATHER, the one you always wanted to have …” Matthew 5:48.

    Because of the mercy and grace that God had for us, He sent his only begotten Son to teach us how we should live our lives and to bring salvation for our souls by giving up his life for the ransom of many. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” (Ephesians 1:7).

    the kingdom of this world

    The kingdom of this world is ruled by an evil entity spirit whose name is Satan. The Bible refers to him as “the serpent” (revelation 12:9), this evil entity literally poisons the minds and hearts of humanity, by tempting them to sin and depart from the truth, which is in Christ Jesus. “…He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” Jesus Christ, The Living God. (John 8:44.)

    As a serpent is sneaky in its ways, it attacks the heart of humankind when we get close to reading The Word of God. “In whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:4.

    Accordingly, when Christ came to this world he explicitly and specifically warned us about the two kingdoms at hand. “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.” Jesus Christ, The Living God, (John 18:36).

    Christ spoke to us in parables so that the humble in heart may understand The Truth.
    Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Jesus Christ, The Living God; (Luke 10:21.)

    If you want to come close to God, you must repent from your sin, make peace to the people that you have sinned against, read the Word and believe that Jesus Christ was crucified for your sins and has risen from the dead for the sake of humanity. Let’s pray wholeheartedly the following prayer:

    “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” Mathew 6:13, Jesus Christ, The Living God.

    Father I ask you to forgive my sins, and to make me humble in heart so that I may get to know your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who was raised from the dead, Glory to Christ, my Lord and my savior. Amen.

  22. I'm so up in the air about this yall but here me out. We are in the age of Aquarius the so called 11th house which is in short summary the relation between the inner & outer universe, basically God is speaking to us, but what exactly is he telling us. Probably to meditate & learn the truth. Thats how you find peace right … so if you look at bible quotes speaking of #11. It says Confusion of language(slang, music lyrics), chaos, lawbreaking(spiritually, or physically). Some may say lawbreaking has happened in every past time, true life. But not at this rate, not to this extent, never this ignorant. Simply just think about how much the population has increased overtime … so thats probably more than triple the crime rate(estimation). But IRONICALLY, #11 represents the opposite. So now, think about the many people who are really suffering deep inside but televised promotion shows happiness. Everything is so happy … not that happiness isn't good but is it actually authentic ? There's the deception of 11.

    Also the Aquarius is an Air sign who loves freedom.

    Freedom is what leads to the mass universal uprise. (which is naturally is a spinoff of the 12th house)
    12th house you say?
    Well yea we just left the Age of Pisces which is the so called 12th house … Solely based on birth of Religion & can be seen in many ways as an imprisonmental(not a word)era … which makes me think of slaves & civil rights & unlawful indictment & the great depression. Also it can described as an Age of self sacrifice. Think about community & cultural leaders who were shot down cold blood. Whether it be for good or bad causes … Think about the Robin Hood imagery where it be from Mob movies or V for Vendetta … And even tho it was labeled as the (2)0th century, the 1(9)00s, 1800s, all the way back to 1 AD. Were dominated by individualist. The power of the #1. The 9, I point out because thats the number of the humanitarian. Which soothes my Robin hood point. WHILE I do understand that from a naked eye point of view, every single digit isn't played out in reality … but what if it secretly is and just not payed any attention to by the masses. NEXT

    The (2)1st century … which is the 2000's, are dominated obviously by #2. 2 's are Female energy (read upon). It crazy because in numerology the 11 posses powers of not only the 2 but also the 1. And if you wanna spice it up and revolve it around sports. KYRIE IRVING WEARS #11. We all know last year in Boston the perception was that he wasnt a good leader. We dont know for sure we just know that 2's are naturally passive & 1's are naturally aggressive. So maybe there was a conflict in balance and unhappiness.

    So As we enter 2020 I believe everyone will secretly enter their own stage of spiritual enlightenment mainly cause we'll need it. Technology is naively overwhelming. No one really knows the real answer right now because no ones currently eats healthy enough & is discipline enough to reach this higher state of knowledge. Our instincts are supposed to be as high as animals. Yea you see the monkey … But really simply put for me … any righteous Religion is a universal guide. Wrong doing leads to guilt & guilt leads to Karma. Either way it'll eventually force you to the higher source whether by force or choice. I see God as the (U)ni(verse). But the only way to know for sure is through spiritual practice. Maybe then we'll be able to understand seemingly confusing scripture readings from God's view or breath.

  23. I burned a bible before and nothing bad has ever happened to me and everyone says im fucked up for doing it but idc it's just words on paper

  24. I don't think any of us knows whether or not there is anything resembling heaven. We don't know how we got here or whether there was some kind of planned creation. I think scientists and theologians etc., should continue to explore and investigate. As of now, no one knows anything for sure.

  25. “They eat every third baby bc they think it makes fruit grow bigger” – Morty Smith from the Rick and Morty show

  26. You all might think the Devil is Evil but really you got it all wrong. truth is God and the Devil are Backwards. Read all Satanisgod Org and come back and debate me. and guess what You'll be saving your soul in the process, fighting Communism, and saving your future Liberties. You cannot be conned if you have knowledge, don't be afraid of knowledge. Seriously Eyes open No Fear, Question Everything, I implore you to check out that site. Save the World and Change your life for the better

  27. Just the titling is marked by idiocy. These will flee from Darwin too, as if they never knew him as SCIENCE annihilates him.

  28. What rubbish, who created language smelling, hearing, knowledge , how did our soul enter into this body, there is definitely a god, who created this world,

  29. I’m starting my own religion it has no name no god no heaven no hell no bible no praying no sins it’s just living my life the way I like and letting others live there lives the way they like

  30. What? That's backward thinking, which is complex and specific, rather than simple and broad. All the religions of the world in history fit together as part of a bigger story, and they fit perfectly like puzzle pieces, but this only happens if you take them literally. Metaphorical interpretations are you literally saying, "The __[insert scripture]__ doesn't mean what it says; it means what I say it says."

    🤷🏻‍♂️

  31. ✋🏻☺Hi everyone . Everyone who reads my comment. God bless you. I am pleased to give you some information about my religion .

    ⭕️ #The_Meaning_of_Islam’

    ⚡️The Arabic word ‘Islam’ means to submit, a total surrender, a total resignation to God. Therefore, a ‘Muslim’ is ‘one who submits to God.’ Islam means to submit to Allah alone, to worship and serve Allah alone, and to believe and follow the prophet sent to them. To many non-Muslims, ‘Islam’ is a religion that began in the seventh century in the Middle East, but to Muslims, Islam has always been the only religion of Allah since the time of Adam, the first man. Thus, Islam was the religion of all prophets who came after him. In the time of Moses, Islam was to worship Allah alone and believe and follow the teachings Moses had brought, and Islam in the time of Jesus was to worship Allah alone and believe and follow the teachings Jesus had brought, as they were both prophets sent by God to teach his religion.
    ⤵️

    After the coming of Prophet Muhammad, Islam is to worship Allah alone and believe and follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad. Although the teachings of all the prophets about God, the Afterlife, and all other realities of belief were the same, there were slight differences in the methods of practice, worship and service, for each prophet was sent to a specific nation and specific period of time. Even though previous religions come under the general heading of Islam, the religion of Muhammad has specifically been given the name ‘Islam’ by God, as it is the final religion prescribed for humanity until the Day of Judgment.

  32. I'm an athiest and we athiests do not have to prove shit to theists that God isn't real..
    The burden of proof is on thiests to prove that god is real..

    I'll explain the reason behind it this way,
    I'd I say that I have fairies in my mother's backyard and some more intelligent individual does not want to believe it, is the burden of proof oh him to prove that there are no fairies or is it on me to prove that there are fairies?
    Thought so

    Religion is complete horseshit and was completely used by powerful people to manipulate people into doing things for their selfish benefits..

  33. Most All of The Major Religions just like Christianity really is, Truly are The Cancerous 
    and Evilly and The Most Destructive of a Horrible Evil Ridden Brainwashed Disease of a 
    Sickening VIRUS was ever made onto Victims.YES BELIEFS IN GOD AND SATAN ARE 
    BRAINWASHED MIND VIRUES. 
    …~⭐Stephen Fry on God | The Meaning Of Life⭐~… 
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-suvkwNYSQo
    P.S. I hate all of The Major Dogmatic EGOISH religions just like Christianity really is 
    and that Inflict Pain and Suffering onto its brainwashed Victims and they meaning 
    can't even punch there way out of a paper bag to free themselves from it because 
    they are too far gone to free themselves…. …End Of Story…

  34. How change in nature leads to further more satisfactory result we have a biological theory about entropy if disturb in nature occurs that will lead more intelligent more sophisticated more good looking
    That doesn't even make sense how apes could turn into human there should be some kinda evidence that shows this is the middle stages of evolution so we could judge how evolution occurred what was the circumstances why do they were forced to convert into humans otherwise this is non sense

  35. To say it in another way, at least in order eras, acting outside religion, society was the sum of different people, while religion somehow formed a powerful group of people.
    The reason why there is so much efford against the religions and the faith of people, is exactly because someone else want to gain our control. It is not matter of truth. It is matter of manipulation and control.

  36. If you keep driving for yours at a constant speed you are at a high risk of falling asleep. Turns out the same goes for hearing someone speak at a constant tone. This man may know what he's talking about, but we'll never know if that's true, as we keep disconnecting to the drowsing sound of his voice.
