GUEST,daylia BS: Is Religion a form of Mental Illness ??? (234* d) RE: BS: Is Religion a form of Mental Illness ??? 07 Dec 04

We do look to various philosophies and theologies to answer the unanswerable questions of life - that's a natural consequence of being human.

There's the rub. The "answers" lie beyond theology and philosophy. Applying mental gymnastics to spiritual questions just creates confusion and argument, while generating even more questions. These approaches have failed, quite demonstrably, for millennia.

When we gonna wake up?

When we see absolute truth only in our own ideology, we become dangerous.

This is a possibility, depending on the ideology. An ideology of say, love, noninterference and nonviolence, is pretty benign.
