False Confidence

False Confidence, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

The parties
Of God
In blood
Confident of
The correct
Where the only
Oath is
Seeking justification
Of the subjugation
Of others.

All the word’s religions followers and the subsects of all think they got it right, and these various clubs fight and kill and war over their clubs and this is not exclusive to the monotheisms of Abraham. Asian and Hinduism also have had their histories of internal fights and fights with external rivals.

Religions do not solve human conflict, they perpetuate it. Now that is not to say it is realistic or at all possible to rid the world of any religion, it isn’t. But it is to say if our species is to minimize conflict we need to put more emphasis on our common needs, such as health, food, shelter, safety, and non violence, and environmental protection, than which club is the correct club.
