I know this because of the contradictions. There are far more than a thousand beliefs that all contradict one another. That means that more than 99.9 percent of people are wrong thinking they are enlightened which is very dangerous and has proven to be disastrous in the past. The more people hold to religion the more wicked they become and the more they think they are right. Most people do not know right from wrong because they blindly accept precepts that have no premises behind them or even moral foundational beliefs. There are questions that must be answered before you can have a logical morality. Questions like what are we, what are we in relation to each other, and why are we here. Then you have to prioritize your precepts and i also have premises for that. Ask if you dont understand what the answers to these questions determine.
Enlightenment is different for every person.You should do whatever your mind and spirit guides you to do whether its buddhism/taoism/others, a diety based belief, an organized religion, or a spiritual atheism. Thats what you should do. And however you believe you should stop being a d*ck amd pushing your beliefs on anyone else or trying to make them feel inferior or stupid. If there is one thing i can't stand it is elitism.
Like I SAID!!!!! The modern age should mock religion at every turn. It is nothing more than pure bunk. The epitome of "fuzzy thinking"! Science has elevated the process of thinking to the highest level as we submit nature to the most discerning analysis. Religion is now at humanities' "Childhoods End".
