In the name of various of their common prophets religious people have slaughtered each other in "holy wars", invaded each other's territories to "save the land" for each other, and engaged in genocide to purify the planet of defective people who honor the same prophets. How are we to understand such tragic behavior? 1. There are many gods in heaven who are at war with each other; and the gods are served by conflicting worshipers who serve different ones of the warring gods. 2. There is one God in heaven who so far has not had the power, knowledge, presence or will to get human creatures to honor Her (Him?) in a coherent way with integrity. 3. One God who is in heaven will reward human creatures according to rules which have been made obscure; to be revealed clearly only on the judgment day to please God and fulfill God's Will. 4. Humans are imperfect creatures who are still evolving through the survival of the fittest. Many humans do not survive well because they become dis-eased, ill- tempered, contentions, conflicted and violent --- through many addictions, codependent supports and collusive games of mutual self deception. 5. Salvation will eventually come through improvements in education, science, technologies, political systems, and economic systems. There is much work to be done! 6. There may be many others and perhaps better ways to understand why religious people fight others who share with them a common heritage in prophecy. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
