Ok, so first off, what is religion, and why has is come about so often in man's existence? Religion is man's interpretation and worship of some spiritual realm, or something deeper than life itself. Man since the dawn of time has wondered in awe how we got to be here, and different cultures have found their own ways of trying to define and worship God. There is nothing wrong with this, but this is how I see organised religion; If religion has originated from all around the world by uncountable cultures and from all different types of environments, then how could one religion say that theirs is the correct form of worship? Christianity and Muslim culture predominately seem to find themselves in the right, because they have Jesus and Muhammad on their side to back it up. Organised religion is a man-made dogma that tries to define something outside of understanding, religion tries to grasp the idea of God in their arms and say " Here's God!! this is what he looks like!!! This is how he's to be worshiped!!" Just as individuals are all different, so are cultures, so naturally beliefs and religion will vary from each culture because that society is structured a different way, and that culture sees life in a completely different way. This is about as close-minded as a friend telling another friend not to smoke marijuana because it'll rot his brain cells. The human experience is unique to each individual, and each individual sees God in a completely different way as the next person. Even an atheist needs faith to back their beliefs of not believing anything. Now what I personally think is better than religion is spirituality. Spirituality is a free form of feeling and intuition of a higher consciousness. Spirituality is not bound by rules and structure, it is all relative to the individual.
