Many thoughts about religion have been written over history. My thoughts are not about special sects, including the non-believers. My thoughts are about how each person, within their own mind, can develop (or not develop) the differences between “good” and “bad”. We have many examples of individuals who develop into good thinking minds. We also no of many examples of individuals who develop into bad thinking minds. My thoughts are not about the “bad” thinking people who probably will never try to make our world better. My thoughts are about the “good” thinking people who will try to make our world better. Most of the religious sects (including the non-believers) understand that “good” works better than “bad”. It is within each person during it’s life. So, there is a “choice” for each person, perhaps over and over again!
Over history, we have thought about these things over and over again. We should know by now that the “future” is not what we are into. The “present” is what we have to be thinking about. Most of our World is now much smaller. Many of us know about this. We know about our world history over the past. We know about the difficulties that humans in different groups around the World have tried to solve by themselves through war have not worked.
Religion, the “Sects”, and “non-believers” maybe could make the difference in our World. Instead of trying to overcome each other, they could try to make “good” work so much better than “bad” that almost everyone would be known as a “HAPPY” person! Religious sects and non-believers still believe in the “GOOD”. It is time to focus on “GOOD” instead of trying to overcome each other.
