“All natural institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”

    Tom!

    Glad you made it to the discussion!

    You really had it down way back in the 18th century. I’m sorry to say that, yes indeed, things have not changed much.

    Although, there are quite a lot of us naturalist atheistic types out here trying to live happy complete and loving lives without the terrifying and enslaving dogma of the religious oligarchy.

    Hang around for a couple of hundred more years and your vision of a suitable world for humanity may just exist.

    All the best,

    Critic
