I made the mistake? Lets take a poll while we are at it.
What are you more afraid of? The possibility that today's Christian church is gonna rise up and go on a holy crusade and start slaying people by the sword in the name of the almighty, or people more and more each day starting to feel like they are God, and that they have the right to fulfill every whim and desire they might have because they have to answer to no one?
You can't sit there and tell me a Godless society would be easier to control than a morally convicted population which begs to answer this one question...
I mean c'mon dude, your whole argument is based on how you think religion is a big lie used to control people, but you can't see why they thought they needed to do it in the first place?
According to you, they obviously had a problem/agenda they needed to solve, so according to you, they came up with this big lie to get it fixed, but you want to go back to before they lied.
If you are going to maintain your delusion, you have to come up with a believable story as to why someone decided to lie to the world, while completely discrediting the idea that nobody ever has tried to use religion to keep people under control, which you and I both know you already think is true.
