What is the proof that the world was begun by religion?
I believe religion was created so humankind can explain the mysteries of life (and even then there are some mysteries without sufficient explanation). We are told that we were created in the image of God, and yet if you look at the Old Testament, I could make the argument that in an attempt to give God a mental form, he (Old Testament is assuredly he) was pictured as a sometimes benevolent and sometimes angry father figure that somehow was able to keep track of all human behavior and had time left over to judge that behavior and relegate individuals to a particular eternal resting place based on that behavior.
Religious Science teaches that there is a primordial creative force from which all creation emanates, not a God in the Old Testament sense. The Big Bang theory is as good an explanation as any I’ve heard, and actually better than most.
The Rev. Joe Niemiec Jr. began his spiritual quest in 1986 when he walked out of a Houston jail and was struck by the realization that his life was in shambles.
He began his quest for ‘getting back on track’ with 12 step programs, followed by learning and practicing meditation with a local Redding, California, teacher.
