  •  The totality of everything is inexplicable. (1+ / 0-)

    Consciousness itself is inexplicable. We are all involved together in a process we call life, that we do not fully understand, in a place we call the universe, about which we know very little. One day soon we are all going to die. No one, not even the sharpest scientist on the block, knows what any of it means. Is it any wonder that we invent religions?

    True, they are powerful and have always been so. If they were far less powerful than they are, we would all be far better off. But the fundamental human need for religion (however it might be defined) is as old as humanity itself. It's not going away anytime soon.
