When one buys into a belief structure which claims manifestation is ruled by a deity, the nature of reality becomes colored in with the imaginary.
One diminishes the vast experiential potential of the human mind by clinging to a faith that this imaginary deity has a plan for them.
When one colors in the intellectual blank spots with the will of an imaginary god, the ever emerging freshness of the thinking mind is smeared and clouded by an ancient dogma originated in fear and based on nonsense.
And that’s a damn shame.
Some of that sounds like the ‘god-of-gaps’ position, where any unexplained area, phenomena or force etc. is attributed to a god. Religion has had to give up so much ground though, that the gaps are smaller than ever, and they’re being swallowed up at faster and faster rates.
But that’s all pretty obvious to those who are used to acknowledging things that don’t necessarily cheer you up, bring comfort for comfort’s sake, and so on.
