oneness as a child seemed alot more healthy than a seemingly forced upon experience on my last shroom trip, a somewhat impure experience or mybe iv just been blinded for so long by society as to be driven into spiritual shock. seemed on the trip that there was a designed process in this remembering by coming to earth. attempting to reverse the effects of seperatism has been somewhat close dended so far. the people i talk to just smile and nod, they listen but do not hear.

I agree that religion is sometimes the middle man between you and God (sometimes far worse) and that it is good to talk directly with God and have no one between you.

Although some religions, such as the Mormons, say that you should question their beliefs openly and that you should establish an individual relationship with God...I think what I don't like is they think that after you do that you will agree with them entirely.

The term 'religion' may have lost it's original meaning. We see it as people who follow beliefs. The Christian Bible, however, conveniently defines what our religion is:

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

This can be build upon, to look after anyone in need, and to keep our minds clean and positive. Our mindset changes how we behave, and how we feel. A benefit to 'religion' is to have a purpose and meaning, a solid one, that never needs to change foundations. Not changing at a whim. To know how we came to exist, not how we think we got here. Our personal belief doesn't change the past. There's very little evidence of evolution. Where are all the intermediate monkey-human hybrid bones? There are only 'neanderthals'. The Bible says people used to live for 900 years. The evidence for this is found in neanderthals: part of the human skull never stops growing. The brow ridge. This explains an oddly shaped skull, after ~900 years of growth

Or maybe we are incapable of assuming the patience of the Sphinx for which a thousand years is like one day, and require adaptive associations.

The trope of the schoolkid putting a book in the back of his pants to mitigate the paddling - thAt is very much the case with most religious people, jamming a holybook inbetween God and them to avoid direct contact with the living God, instead preferring the necrophilia of defining God by what was said to others 2000 years ago, and if someone testifies everybody says Amen which means Shut Up more than anything in many cases.

Lies are the first of our adaptive strategems; providing a basis for the novelties we crave.

Unassigned supportive elements can be viewed as a menace to ideas of civil code; which itself can be based on lies.

Evolution is entirely observable through Lenskis ecoli experiment.

You must be trolling to say something this lacking of context and information.

There are dozens of different stages of ape to human evolution that have already been discovered and catalogued.

This is a flagrant display of not understanding what a common ancestor is.

I hope for your own good this bolded statement is a joke.

chimpanzee's genes are 99% the same as humans, they are basically our siblings. however, i still believe that humans didn't develop by chance but their existence was already inherent in the moment of the big bang, just like the potential existence of a plant, including every stage of its development, is already contained in a seed. it's not the stem that leads to the leaves. it's the seed.

fortunately I put van0014 on ignore forever.
we need the ability to filter out junk in our lives.
that may be where the idea of god originally arose, some respectable filter
to help reduce the constant threat of noise while living close together.

i.e. god is in the ignoring of details

What do you mean? You may have put me on your ignore list, but I have nobody on mine. To be unbiased, this is important to me
