The Good and Bad of Religion

Wikipedia has an excellent article about this, listing Religion as part of Spirituality.

This will not satisfy the religious themselves, however – who will continue to insist that they are right, and everyone else is wrong!

The question I want to answer this morning is not new, and has been answered before – what advantage did religion have for the human race? The answer has been – it made civilization (large societies, or empires) possible! Because it made everyone in a society feel they were united, in a common religion.

It became important to have the right kind of religion – because almost anything can become a religion. In our time, Business has become a religion – and a very powerful one. It made our Economy possible – the most important thing imaginable!

To deal with this problem, we have to first realize that Business is a religion – and deal with it that way.

But this is impossible.
