After years of hostility toward God and religion, it’s time to look up again. We can peer into the immortal cosmology, past all the foibles and meanderings of the human existence.
The hostility gets old as thinkers roll up their sleeves and demand a higher and better concept of God. Human beings also demand religious accountability, not so easy in the coming, but coming nonetheless. We need to keep up with the progress.
Though we’d sometimes like to throw God and religion in the trash basket, it’s not going to happen. God and religion are as deep-rooted in our psyche as the fact human beings have noses and ears. Even people who say they don’t believe in God, believe in something—and they have noses and ears so we aren’t going to through their ideas in the trash either.
Not that God or religion has all the answers to the mysteries of the universe, but updated knowledge about God and religion can convey why it is we do believe and imagine.
It’s our nature to increase the level of exposure for God and religion. The passion to communicate spreads the messages received by consciousnesses around the world.
We get tired of defining ourselves by our skin color, gender, or ethnicity. We want to define ourselves as an aspiring consciousness, artist, parent, physicist, etc. with opportunities.
A God and religion, not tied to human traits and history, allows for these ambitions and opportunities.
From Science and Health, “Happiness is won as the good has ascendency over the evil and the spiritual over the animal. The attainment of this spiritual condition improves our progeny, diminishes crime, and gives higher aims to ambition. Every valley of materialism must be exalted and every mountain of selfishness must be brought low, that the highway of our God may be prepared in Science.”
