“Why do most people think of themselves as religious brands designated Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, etc? If there is one big example of a fundamentally flawed idea in the human race this is the one.”

  1. Kittie Says:

    Because they are comforted being part of a “group”

    The thing that I find the strangest is the “religious impulse” which so many translate as the spiritual experience. The reason the groups are so large, I believe, is both that comfort factor you mention, Kittie, but also the fact that so few of us actually feel that spiritual experience, and we seem to congregate whenever someone says they have felt it.
