Are we Evolving?
Only 500 years ago it was a popular opinion that the earth was flat and was at the center of the universe or that everything revolved around it, people like Copernicus and Galileo paid for their opinions by the hierarchy of the religious sects ridiculing them and worse,
Religion was big back then and it is big right now except that the Dogmas and superstitions have changed to encompass different parts of scriptures, it is not so important to mention any particular religion or scripture as it is quite evident that they all have their faults,
and the main fault that they all have is that they are written by man, and man has a dual personality, there are no exceptions to this, there are only degrees of control of this duality, our realization of this fact and our initiative to wisely use our free will for more spiritual and divine purposes rather than succumbing to our emotions and wallowing in our material based senses is what is going to save us all,
the big question is when? Just take a step back and look at our world and what concerns humanity, see how our world leaders present themselves to humanity and it is embarrassing, yet we are evolving,
science has taken a poke at religion and religion recites the same dogmas, the answers are all there, we just need to pay attention, even though our scriptures were written by man, that doesn't mean that there wasn't any divine inspiration,
if we just use a little discrimination along with our intuition, some wisdom may peek through. Be it God or the Tao or even only a belief in Humanity, there is a logical progression to all of this,
essentially there does not have to be a belief in anything that cannot be proven, only an understanding that we all have free will and that we are not required to have wars and to suppress others beliefs,
just a reasonable amount of tolerance along with some unconditional love would be enough to allow us to live on a peaceful planet that we can all be proud of.
