“'Change or die' seems to be the operative phrase for religion these days.”

    It seems to me that over the years, the operative phrase for religions has been “Don’t change, or you will certainly die!”

    I don’t know what Pardi is talking about – I’ve never heard a clergyman proclaim that his religion must change to keep pace.

    “’Change or die’ seems to be the operative phrase for the Republican Party these days.”

    The reality of religion, if there can be such a state, is that it is constantly changing to keep up with the times. Initially you may think this is a hopeful sign but you must also realize that religion changes to maintain itself as a fraud. It doesn’t advance as science does, it doesn’t adopt new directions, it simply comes up with a new lie to replace those that have fallen from favor.

    In this sense the rapture which isn’t meantioned in the bible, or Paul’s incredible lack of knowledge regarding Jesus, and the arrival of the gospels beginning with Mark some 40 years after the death of this supposed Christ character can be better understood.

    The objective of religion never changes, only how it is wrapped up and presented to the masses.

    I would love to see religion die. As for changing for survival, it’s something the rest of society must do, as we are clearly on a path to extinction.
