I WILL EVENTUALLY OFFEND YOU
Religion is “The Hard Problem Of Social Science”. It took me longer than any other problem in social science, science proper, grammars, and logic.
But in the end, like all problems, it was a solvable problem. And it makes everyone – including the atheists, the marxist-postmodernist-feminists, the abrahamists, and the rest of the world religions unhappy.
There are very few of us who are fit to practice The Law, because there are few of us for whom the Truth is emotionally and intellectually tolerable – those of us with agency can be produced easily enough, but there are few of us who possess the facility by accident of circumstance in combination with our natures.
We all have cherished falsehoods and lies that we have invested in. The truth is undesirable or we would not require it.
It is the ultimate test of character: Can You Face The Truth?
If you cannot face the truth, but can be a moral man, then that is Fine. But you may not serve as a Judge of the Law, or Juror of its violation. If you both cannot face the truth, and you cannot be a moral man, then we those who are moral will challenge you under the law, and those of us who can face the truth shall prosecute and convict you under it.
As members of cults we are always in conflict over the legal systems under them, since those legal systems are arbitrary means of advocating different group evolutionary strategies of cooperation – all of which, under religion, despite their early utility, evolved to be more hinderance than good.
As member of the Love of Man, of our Peoples, In nation-states, producing commons suitable to our needs, we are not enemies but allies in a division of labor producing the transcendence of man.
If there is a better religion than that I do not know what it is.
But it is the one I am proposing.
A religion of the love and transcendence of man into gods, not into the subjects of priests and politicians, investors and industrialists.
