RECONCILIATION FORUM
Welcome to my Reconciliation Forum

Reconciliation Forum by Menfranco Laws
INTODUCTION:

Anybody is and will be welcome to my Reconciliation Forum, as long as they come to visit this site with good intentions and have no harmful ideas in their minds, they are of good people and looking for ways to reconcile any difference they might have with the rest of the community at large; at the same time it is appreciated if any of you that visit this reconciliation site, come up with good ideas that could improve humanity at large. I hope you understand that this is one of the reasons why this reconciliation forum has been opened. 
I have to tell you that I am an old man now, how old I am not going to tell you, since age in these writings is not very important in deciding what to say and what to do. I am also going to tell you that my real name is not Menfranco Laws, but this is the name that I have assumed for the Internet. Anyhow I was saying that during my life I have learned many things and formed new ideas from what I have learned in my life, so now that I am old I would like to say a few things that may perhaps help future generations, after all there is no need to learn anything at all if one does not try to use those learning’s one has learned one day, so having learned these things during my life, which is that we always have to try to reconcile all sorts of disagreements, if we really want to achieve a better life for ourselves and the future generations; so now,  I would like to pass knowledge on to you my readers, if you do not mind and you my reader are willing to follow me and read my reconciliation forum writings.
Perhaps what I am going to say may not be of any importance to some of you, but I am sure that there will be some people that will find what I am going to say interesting enough, and so, they will follow me all the way to the end of my reconciliation writings.
Anyhow, at this very moment the most important reconciliation I am thinking about is religious reconciliations, because there are so many happenings that involve religious groups and some of those happenings are not nice at all, in fact they are harmful to the point of even killing other fellow’s man. I suppose that you all agree that killing other human beings is the cruellest act that mankind can do, especially if it turns out that the reason for killing another man is wrong, so a man should first of all try to see if there is a way for reconciliation, and even if there isn’t a way out for reconciliation killing somebody is completely wrong. Anyhow I have to point out that this is only one of the several reconciliations that mankind needs to try to achieve, because there are many more reconciliations that mankind needs to do something about them, in order that mankind can have a better life, I believe it is the duty of any good citizen to do so.
So let me try to start my dialogue about reconciliation/s somehow; at this point of time I am calling these writings Reconciliation Forum, just for the time being, because I have in mind to write something about all sorts of reconciliations if I can, I know that this is only an idealistic theory of mine, or a wishful thinking I call it sometimes; therefore in the beginning I would like to cover all sorts of reconciliations and make a list of them, so that I would be able to choose one that seems more important to me then the rest, and also I feel within my heart that I have to do something about it. Of course, it might turn out that the name of, Reconciliation Forum might not be the right name for the subject/s that I will choose, and if that is the case it may be necessary to give them another name to describe what sort of reconciliations they cover, I have already given my most important reconciliation a name, Reconciliation of the Universe, this reconciliation will be about religions and the way that they may coexist with the rest of the world.
Therefore this document is being written in order to find a way about how we can achieve some sorts of reconciliation/s in this world. So, let me explain what I mean here, although today there are so many types of reconciliations that we can talk about, as I am going to show you some of them hereunder. You see, I would like to show you this article because a while ago I have written the beginning of some reconciliations, in the hope that one day somehow I would be able to write a few of them; but that is a very big task and I had to drop most of them, so that I would be able to concentrate first of all on one of the most important reconciliation of our times. So, the first part of these writings here aim mostly to discuss about religious issues, which for a very long time have been left unchanged and seem to bring some unforseen issues to the world at large.  
However, let me show you first of all the starting point of a list of possible reconciliations that we can try to achieve for the betterment of all humanity. So, let us take a look hereunder at this list of reconciliation, which I have already started to write in my Original Reconciliation Docs:
-----------------------------------------------
My dear readers I suppose that you can blame my imagination if you find these writings below a bit outside the normal ways, I know that I seem to be jumping here there and everywhere in my writings and illustrations below, but you have to forgive me, because what I am trying to write here is a new way of seeing things, and usually this is what happens when you want to start a brand new thing, you look everywhere, you stop at looking at everything around you, you think outside the normal everyday box, you see, this is what I just did when I started to write about my theory of, Reconciliation of the universe. You see I had to go back a step or two and find an excuse about reconciliations; this is how I started my Original Reconciliation Docs, let us now see what I wrote in this article.    
Original Reconciliation Docs



AS HUMAN BEINGS IN THE INTEREST OF ALL HUMANITY WE NEED CONTINUALLY DO SOMETHING POSITIVE, IN ORDER TO KEEP IN HARMONY WITH EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE, INCLUDING MOTHER NATURE AND OUR SPIRITUAL BELIEFS; SO WE SHOULD BE IN SEARCH OF UNIVERSAL RECONCILIATIONS ALL THE TIME.

But first of all let us imagine where we stand in the wide universe, because not only earthly things need to be reconciled, but also spiritual issues which one can only imagine that they cover the whole universe. Having said that Now I hope that you understand the reasons why I have started in this way shown below: 

 
So, we are in a corner of the universe and
we are in search for universal reconciliations.
-
                                             
This picture represents the sign of the zodiac which is the corner of the universe that we are living in.

WE LIVE IN THIS CORNER OF THE UNIVERSE, AND IF WE WANT TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH OUR ENVIRONMENT WE NEED CONSTANTLY TO FIND A WAY ON HOW TO BE RECONCILED WITH OUR FELLOW MAN; WHAT WE SHOULD DO AND WHAT WE SHOULD NOT DO IN ORDER TO LIVE ACCORDING TO MOTHER NATURE; AND WHAT WE SHOUD DO AND WHAT WE SHOULDN’T DO TO LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD THE LIFE GIVER AND MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE.
SO, WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR HOW TO RECONCILE TO THESE THREE ELEMENTS CONSTANTLY.
THEREFORE WE SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY SEACHING FOR UNIVERSAL RECONCILIATIONS.
SO THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THIS DOCUMENT IS BEING WRITTEN.











We the people of this world should be
In search of universal reconciliation!


People crowd

PEOPLE AND THEIR PROBLEMS, COULD WE FIND SOLUTIONS?

WE ARE INVITING PEOPLE TO DISCUSS ANY SORT OF RECONCILIATIONS.

And therefore we will be trying to find together future universal reconciliations

----------------------------------------


FUTURE UNIVERSAL RECONCILIATIONS

I believe we can do this together as nowadays we may have reached the age of reason.

Author assumed writing name: Menfranco Laws; email address:


Together we should be able to find, Future Universal Reconciliations.

This document is being created in the hope that we (the people of this world) would be able one day to find a way on how to achieve Future Universal Reconciliations.

In order to start these discussions and reconciliations happening I am going to try if I can publish this document on the Internet, in the hope that lots of people will read it and be willing to help, so that the people of this world would be able to work together for the future betterment of all humanity.

Therefore I intend to share this document on the internet with lots of people, and ask them if they would like to contribute their own ideas and their own beliefs on how we may be able to achieve just any sort of Universal Reconciliation to start with.

I am new to the Internet and don’t know yet how to set up a group community entity, where everybody is able to sign in and write their own reply, so, I suggest that:

Anyone wanting to contribute is welcome to do so, and may be able to do it by emailing to us just to get it going until a better way is found; the email addresses are:


You are all welcome to email your ideas.
And we will try to answer your email the best way we can.

LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO BE WRITTEN HERE.

Let me state what I would like to see written in here; I would like to see written an idealistic theory or theories that with time would grow in importance, so that one day these written theories would and could become reality.

I feel that we are at the beginning of the age of reason, and I believe that any human being who is worth to be called a human being must live his life according to certain rules, if he wants to be called a human being.
Therefore, a man must always try to do his best to stay within certain fundamental rules, whether these rules are natural unwritten human expectations, written government laws or religious commandments.

The duty of any living man is that he has to try to live his whole life honestly the best way he can according to these rules, or at least as good as his forbears have done before him, since he would have been trained from them to do so.

Then, if a human being is able during his own life to find a way on how to improve the knowledge he has received from his forbears it would be good for him to use it to his own advantage, and if he believes that what he has learned during his life could be an improvement of the knowledge he has received, then let him pass it on to the future generations: I believe that these are the duties of any living man, and any living man should really be asking himself the following question: What is the duty of humanity of this Planet? And then try to live according to these rules.

I know that what I want to start here is just a dream of mine; but dreams sometimes can become true if we try hard enough to make them happen.

Now, having explained briefly what I would like to be written here let me go back to its main requirements.
What would the requirements be?

1
I, Menfranco Laws (this is my assumed name on the internet)  as the starting author of these writings feel compelled to give a short description of what I would like to see written in them:
2
All discussion should be serious discussions as the aim of these writings is to find a serious collective solution to the many problems that exist in this world; so I hope that those good people that would like to contribute keep it in mind. (If sometimes somebody jokes just to have a laugh or two it is okay as long as it is made clear that it is a joke.)
3
It is obvious that there will be several kinds of reconciliations, since there are several kinds of issues that need to be discussed and reconciled in this world. So these writings just for a start need to be divided at least in three main groups of reconciliatory writings:

So that, one group could be dealing with people as in the layman’s world, another with the problems that we the people of this world cause, and what we cause effects Mother Nature, and another would be dealing with beliefs in the religious world: past present and in the future.

Then these three groups would by necessity divide in several other groups and each one of them will be dealing with its own specialty.

4
Since the issues of reconciliation is a very large field, it needs to be addressed by a large number of people, so anybody that wants to participate is welcome to do so, and if one day any of these helpful people feel that this group could not serve their own purposes any longer and wants to enlarge in their own ways they are free to split and form their own group/s.

As for myself, I would like to write mainly just one of the reconciliations, which would be based of course on my own life experiences observations; I would of course also start some of the other reconciliations just to get them going.

5
There are still some issues to be dealt with, here I am thinking about if my ways of setting up this document is going to be compatible with the ways the Internet works. If it isn’t compatible and it doesn’t work then I have to think about what I have to change in order to make it work.
I suppose I am going to know this only after I have posted this document on the internet I try it out.

Anyhow I have to keep going and find my resolutions in a way or the other.
--------------------------------
Resolutions:
Let us decide how to subdivide these three groups

                                              
Group No: 1 People.

This group could be divided in three smaller groups that overlap each other by a number of years:
Group 1, a; for the under 25 plus;

Group 1, b; 25 to 70 years old group;

Group 1, c; for people who are 70 plus years old
-

Group No: 2 Mother Nature.

This group could also be divided in three smaller groups:

Group 2, a; let’s talk about the ways of Mother Nature:

Group 2, b; what do we do that upsets Mother Nature.

Group 2, c; what we should do to set things right again with Mother Nature.
-

Group No: 3 about God and religious beliefs.
This group could also be divided in three smaller groups:

Group 3, a; old religions and the inborn need to have them;

Group 3, b; nowadays religions and how they serve humanity;

Group 3, c; should there be a super religion to help humanity in the future?
------------------------------------------------------


Now let us look at those groups:

Group 1, a; People, the under 25 plus:

-
When you were young, how many times have you been asked? 

What do you want to be when you grow up?

This is one of the questions that grown up ask often young people.

In this forum that I am trying to open here, young people belonging to the under 25 plus group including relatives and friends that are concerned about this group are invited to talk to each other’s and have their say.

Let us hope that there is an easy way on the Internet for you to have your say and be able to write and discuss your things with each other, so that, you tell us about your happy happenings and to tell us about your problems which you would be able to discuss here in order to find your own solutions; so that you would be able to reconcile yourself with everything around you.

Do you think that this is a good way for you to express yourselves and have your say?

Do you think that it is going to work? If you have a better idea let us know by email?

What about telling us the first day at school?

What about telling us the end of your school days?

When you feel saying Good bye to school forever, and feel happy to say hello to the wide world. Watch out world here I come!

Come on! Write a comment?

Anyone wanting to contribute is welcome to do so, and may be able to do it by email to us just to get it going until a better way is found; the email addresses are:

You are all welcome to email your ideas.

And we will try to answer your email the best way we can.

Group 1, b; People 25 to 70 years old:
The Young at heart!
This large group would be better if it is dealt with in smaller groups starting with the over 25 years. These are young people who long to establish themselves in the world of business and make a name for themselves; but at the same time they think mostly like this: Know that we are young and strong we like to go out into the world and enjoy ourselves; and this is exactly what they will be doing for a while, but at the same time in realty in their minds they are thinking about the opposite sex, as they long to find a love partner for themselves, so that they would be able to have their own family, just as Mother Nature instinct wants them to behave.

Well I should say that I do not see anything wrong with that, because that is the way mankind will reproduce their offspring indefinitely and life can go on forever unless the world comes to an end.

There will be some people that might not agree with me on this subject and I suppose they will be a minority, I suppose we might say that we understand them and let them go on the way they want; but what I am talking about here is the main group of people and how they feel within their hearts when they fall in love with the opposite sex.

It has been like that for a very long time and hereunder is some of the gods and goddesses of the ancient love world.

-

(Eros)         (Apollo)        (Artemis)     (Adonis & Venus)

-
Since Mother Nature in order for the species to survive has installed this love bug within us, lucky are those who fall in love at first sight, for they have a chance to love their chosen partner all their life long and never will have any trouble; therefore they could be lucky because they don’t have to look for another love partner all their life and feel blessed for what they have already got; but to be lucky in love is very rare.  

For those who are not so lucky in love may God help them, because they will be struggling to find their love partner all their life long and when they think that they have found the right one something goes wrong again and they end up with a broken heart.

We all have our own views about love and sex; even between straight people of the same gender and a great deal more between the two sexes and even more if one is gay or lesbian.

Let me say this: I hope that the majority of you who take part in these love discussions are straight people as Mother Nature intended them to be; but if they are not, then let them find a way on how to discuss their problems without trying to overrun the normal people.

Whatever you are and whatever you think about love and sex, this forum is open for everybody to discuss their views; so, I hope that you will use it wisely, discuss your happenings, thoughts and ideas and be able to reach a good conclusion and be reconciled with yourself and the world.

And now, apart from your personal discussions there are other things that could be written here, so, just to start the ball rolling and give you an idea of other things that could be written here, I am going to borough some love writing that friends of mine have forwarded to me, when they heard about that I was going to start writing my own views on the Internet. But there is a string attached to these writings which is that I have to clearly state that I am quoting from their writings.
These writings below are short parts of some love poems and other writings, which the
Author: F. M. will let me use with their permission.

Persons that search for love will feel the full force of this Mother Nature mystery.

So, when you feel that love feeling toward your opposite sex within your heart, just don’t stop at saying, I love you, for this may not be enough, say it with all your heart, say it with presents, say it with flowers, say it by writing a love poem to your sweetheart, and perhaps a poem to love itself?
-
THE MYSTERY OF LOVE AND LIFE

I feel that life is love and love is life itself,

And one could not exist without the other.

Therefore if life cannot exist without love,

Then I better love, or I may as well be dead.

Author, F. M.

People that are deeply in love continually torture themselves on how to say sweet things to their sweethearts; they are always thinking what to say and what to do, so they could and would even try to write some love poems like this below (and if these are not poems then call them phraseology of love if you like), in the hope of finding approval from their sweetheart:
-
TO ME YOU ARE MY LOVE:
I love you; to me you are my love
To me you are a wonderful person
To me you are the delight of my eyes
To me you are like a beautiful flower
To me you are my greatest love.

Author, F. M.

These poems (or phraseology of love) which I have written above are much longer: but I am not going to write them in full, I want them to be only an example of what could be written here, in the hope that you the public would add more love phrases to say to your own sweethearts.

So, come on! Get the ball rolling write a poem to your sweetheart now that is close to Valentine day; or just say what you thing about her and your sweet thoughts, or just write a note and send it to her with flowers?

I wish you all that one day you would find sweet love and happiness, so that you would feel within you your heart jump for joy, and so, appreciate Mother Nature and God for giving you life. Good luck to you all.

-

Group 1, c; people 70 years old and over


These group of people are now becoming old, for them to do physical work at this age is becoming hard, so they have to retire; but some of these people have still got a good mind and because of their experiences they are able to spot things and solve problems as good as when they were younger. So, let us hear the old men’s wisdom.
-
Greek god of wisdom Leonardo da Vinci Goddess of wisdom
-
Now that I am 70 years old, one can say that I am an old man, so, I have to say good bye to any dreams which I have not been able to achieve during my life. I feel that I have so much life experience and I believe that I am wiser now; therefore, the only thing that is left for me to do is try to use my earned wisdom in such a way that it would help all humanity.

So, in my acquired wisdom I would like to see written here an idealistic theory or theories that with time would grow in importance, so that one day these written theories would and could become reality and be able to help humanity.

I feel that we are at the beginning of the age of reason, and I believe that any human being who is worth to be called a human being must live his life according to certain rules, if he wants to be called a human being, whether these rules are natural unwritten human expectations, written government laws or religious commandments.

Now that I am an old man, I can say that I have lived my life mostly according to those rules which I have mentioned and I believe that I have become wiser, therefore my duty now is that I have to pass my knowledge to future generations, because, if a human being is able during his own life to find a way on how to improve the knowledge he has received from his forbears it would be good for him to pass it on to the future generations: I believe that these are the duties of any living man, and any living man should really be asking himself the following question: What is the duty of humanity of this Planet? And then try to live according to these rules.

So, you wise men here is the chance to have your say and help humanity!

Come on start the ball rolling!

Group No: 2 Mother Nature.
-
This group could also be divided in three smaller groups:

Group 2, a; let’s talk about the ways of Mother Nature:

Group 2, b; what do we do that upsets Mother Nature.

Group 2, c; what we should do to set things right again with Mother Nature.
-
Group 2, a: The ways of Mother Nature
-
In the beginning, the life force of God in unity with Mother Nature started simple life on this planet earth; this simple life then evolved and became more complex, since then life has changed many times in many ways, sometimes this was good and sometimes bad for the existing life on earth. Today we seem to have reached a point where things are very unpleasant for Mother Nature, so we have reached a danger point and this is when Mother Nature may react and claim back its own ways, so we may even disappear from the face of this earth.
-
This photo shows how Mother Nature wanted things to be.
Please, have your say about this article?

-
Group 2, b: What do we do to upset Mother Nature?
-
Today mankind is overtaxing the ways of Mother Nature; we seem not to care about those ways.

We clear forests and burn all trees down so that we can use the land for grazing or for growing crops. Then we build out towns everywhere and there where were trees and grass now there are towers and towers of gray cement. Where will this all end up?

Do you think that Mother Nature will just let us go on forever?

What do you think about all this?
-
-
Group 2, c: What we ought to do to set things right again?
-
Mankind should be very careful about what they are doing to Mother Nature because Mother Nature doesn’t like to change her ways easily, she may let us do what we want for a while; but in the end she will return to her own ways, and whatever doesn’t agree with her ways will somehow disappear in nothingness. Therefore we may soon have a shock for all the bad things we have done to Mother Nature, I believe that it has already started, as we all know the temperature on earth are increasing and the ice poles are melting, so we better start thinking what we should do to reverse the process.
This is how Mother Nature will turn things back if we are not careful.
Comment about: what could we do to prevent that?
You could also comment about the ways of Mother Nature and if you think it is all right the ways we have been treated from her.

Group No: 3 about God and religious beliefs.


This group could also be divided in three smaller groups:

Group 3, a; old religions and the inborn need to have them;

Group 3, b; nowadays religions and how they serve humanity;

Group 3, c; should there be a super religion to help humanity in the future?
-
Here I would like to stop my introduction writings, because what I have to write next is about religious beliefs, which will be the first chapter of my theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, so I may as well start my theory with this chapter that was going to follow hereunder. After my religious reconciliation, I may try to write about Mother Nature, but this is later on. See you soon, when I publish my Religious Reconciliation Forum.  
------------------------------------------------

HUB 2

RELIGIOUS RECONCILIATION FORUM


About God and religious beliefs.

This third group could also be divided in three smaller groups:

Group 3, a; old religions and the inborn need to have them;

Group 3, b; nowadays religions and how they serve humanity;

Group 3, c; should there be a super religion to help humanity in the future?

These are going to be the main themes of these religious writings:

So, let us see what can be said about them? 

WE ARE IN THE UNIVERSE UN SEARCH OF OURSELVES

WE LIVE IN THIS CORNER OF THE UNIVERSE, AND IF WE WANT TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH OUR ENVIRONMENT WE NEED CONSTANTLY TO FIND A WAY ON HOW TO BE RECONCILED WITH OUR FELLOW MAN; WHAT WE SHOULD DO AND WHAT WE SHOULD NOT DO IN ORDER TO LIVE ACCORDING TO MOTHER NATURE; AND WHAT WE SHOUD DO AND WHAT WE SHOULDN’T DO TO LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD THE LIFE GIVER AND MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE.
SO, WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR HOW TO RECONCILE TO THESE THREE ELEMENTS CONSTANTLY.
SINCE HERE AND NOW, WE ARE WRITING ABOUT GOD AND RELIGIONS THIS IS OUR PRESENT THEME.

---------------------------------
In this religious review we have published already another hub called, RECONCILIATION FORUM, and this is the kink: Other links will be added to this site when we publish them.  


RELIGIOUS RECONCILIATION FORUM

About God and religious beliefs

Chapter one:

-
If we start thinking about it, there are times when we believe that God is up there looking at every move that we make, but there are also times when we think that God does not exist, this has been humanity dilemma from the very beginning of times, when we started thinking and it this shown in of our known life records.
So this issue of the existence of God is forever open to doubts, and it may have to come down to whether God does really exist and our need to believe in the existence of God. What do you think? Does God really exist?




These are some images of gods that mankind has worshipped.
Here I have to add that nobody has really seen God, as God is supposed to be an unseen life force which humans are unable to see.

So, this question arises, how did this belief in God start?

How it all started is hard to say; but let me have my personal say about these religious beliefs and why I believe that Man needs God.
I need to say that apart from the atheists who do not believe in anything, so for them there is no God; but I have to say and believe that there is a God even if I cannot prove it and if there is no God mankind still needs God.
This God need has perhaps happened because man has invented God to help themselves for many reasons; one of the reasons is that it was started out from our inner fear of the unknown.
What I have just said may hurt some people feelings, but we are a fearful lot. We are looking for security all the time, so we live in communities to feel safe; it is human nature to feel this fear of the unknown and it is good because it helps us survive.
The origin of religion therefore may well be an extended reaction to our inner fear, which we try to control by simple reasoning of our mental capacity. So when we were or are facing unexplainable things, we have found a way out in religion, which is good at explaining the unexplainable, and so, religion helps us and makes us feel more secure.

For religion to exist and be helpful to us needs a god as figure head, so this is how god and religion is seen from most people.
What I have just said would make people think that we have invented God ourselves, but I am not sure about that; because it is still possible that things are partly as the Bible says which is that God created us.
The fact still remains that man needs God.

As I have said above; man needs God, and God needs man.
So let us try to discuss and learn the reason why in this article.



Since the beginning of times when humanity became able to think, and so, they became homo sapient able to think about their own ways and make their own decisions they have felt unsafe, so they have been worrying about their safety ever since, because they have always feared about the unknown, the unexplainable and anything that was stronger than themselves; for this reasons they have constantly been searching for protection from these fears and this behaviour easily lead them to make up religions, in the hope that a god, gods or any other powerful entity would protect them from whatever they were afraid of.

At the beginning there were no proper religions, so people would come up with their own fears from something and they thought if this something could be appeased somehow, then they would feel safe from it, as they would not be threatened from it any longer, so, they started to do things that would be able to appease these things whatever they were; this is how the first cults or religions were born, in fact there were some religions that made human sacrifice to their gods, so that they would appease them.

Therefore I believe that religions are an inborn need for humanity to overcome their fears, whatever these fears may be and wherever they come from.

Ancient history is full of gods, goddesses, demigods and heroes and sometimes even strong and powerful animals were worshipped as gods.

Just to set an example of these animal gods; one of these animal gods is even mentioned in the Bible, in Daniel’s, Bel and the dragon, where Daniel slays the dragon that was revered from Babylonians as a god by feeding him a mixture of tar and other ingredients which made the dragon bust and die. I am sure that there are other animals also that man worshipped, but to find that is not easy as one has got to read very ancient literature.

There are so many Greek gods and Roman gods in the history books of those times, which is hard nowadays to know what their role was in those times, so it would be good if somebody that knows writes a few old stories down to illustrate what they did.

Anyone that knows about old myths and legends or old history about gods and religions can have a say here. It would be appreciated if they write their own article here, as it would be a good thing if we are able to compare old religions with modern religions of today.

Religions and how they serve humanity.



When we talk about religions and here I mean today religions, the first thing that may come to our minds is that they are not doing a good job in guiding humanity safely together, as they are supposed to do, there are too many religions in this world, in the past they have been bitterly fighting each other, some of them are still fighting today and they have made many mistakes, so nowadays they still cannot trust each other very much, even though some major religions are trying to improve the situation, by trying to get the other religions interested in talks of reconciliation.

What I mean here is that some religious leaders openly meet leaders of other religions. As we all know this has not happened in the past, so there is a hope that things may improve in the future with time. Nowadays we hear in the news that the pope (head of the Roman Catholic Church) is going to visit a synagogue or to meet leaders of other religions, which may be partly different in their beliefs, this new attitude may help in the long run; but it also may require changes in the ways religions are run and perhaps in the future in my opinion it may require a new way of collective religious beliefs.

So, what religious changes may be required?

To be able to answer that question properly one needs to study the whole situation carefully, so it is going to take a very long time for anyone to be able to answer that positively.

One needs to start by looking at what religions do these days, and then, ask themselves these questions.

Are these religions helping humanity the way they should be helping?

Do these religions make sense to you if you use common sense by only?

Are there any doubts in your mind whether these religions may not be true?

If you have any doubts about religions what do you think we should be doing?

Do you think that if someone can explain religions in a way that makes sense to you it would be easier to accept religions and believe in them?

Do you think that religions need to be reviewed and explained in a modern way?

Where should one start to review religions?

How can anyone explain old beliefs that nowadays don’t make sense anymore?

Churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, minarets and other names of religious buildings are all revered by people, as they have a powerful affect on the human spirit as all of them have their powerful attachment to religion. Religious books have even more power than religious buildings on the human mind and spirit: But today educated people find that there may be a problem with religious books, because there are things that one could not believe to be true, for example if you try to study religions and read religious books one after another these books don’t seem to agree in so many ways with each other, so, educated people don’t really trust religious books any more, not only because they don’t agree with each others; but also because there are lots of things which could not be true, or at least they don’t seem to be true when we apply our mental logic reasoning.

So, what can anyone do to solve this problem?

Should all religious leaders forget their differences and meet together to solve these problems, perhaps by writing a new religious book that covers all religions together?

Should educated people call a conference on this religious subject with the intention of providing religious people with a possible solution on this subject?

If a group of people dedicate their time to learn about religions and in the end find that religions need to be modified in order to agree with each others; so that in the future religions can stand side by side and agree with each others. Would it be then possible for them to write down a theory on how this could be achieved?

Is it possible for anybody to come up with a theory which may somehow provide a possible solution?

In my opinion I believe that this may be possible since this is what I intend to submit to the public in my religious writings of Reconciliation of the Universe. So let me just imagine that there is a super God that all religions believe to be true, this super God is above all today known existing gods and is able to link all existing gods and therefore existing religions together.



_____________________________



Is there a super God or do we need a super God?



First and foremost could there be really a super God? And: Should there be a super religion to help humanity in the future?

The answer to these two questions is a definite yes for the time being; otherwise how could we be able to live and feel safe enough in our own homes?

I believe that humanity still needs a god or at least to believe that there is a superior force above, which would help us in case of needs. Although nowadays a few of us have reached the age of reason, and these few of us called atheists say that we don’t need religions any longer to guide us, I can see their point of view of their reasoning, but I could not agree with that at all, so, I would like to point out to you that it is only a small percentage of people that have reached this higher stage of knowledge and not all humanity has reached it, so, we still need to reach that stage where we could say that we are self sufficient because we have now reached the age of reason; and when we reach that stage then we have to decide whether we don’t need religions to guide us any longer, it will be our choice then and not before?  

After reading those articles above one may ask: What can we do to improve this situation?

There are lots of things that can be done and lots of ways to improve those things which need improvement; but which one is the best way is hard to say.

To start with (and this is my personal opinion) I would like to see more collaboration between religious leaders; but above all I would like to see all religions to put their cards on the table (so to speak), by publishing all their religious books on the Internet free for all to read.

The Internet should give away a free site easy for everybody to find, this site may be called just, Religious Books, and anyone interested in knowing religions can just visit this site and find all the knowledge he needs, so that it would be easy from there on to learn about all sorts of religions. After learning all sorts of religions, one may form his own theory about religions and be able one day to write their own theory about religions.

Today I have to say that although I have not been able to learn as much as I would have liked about religions, I have learned enough to say that deep within my mind and my heart I have formed my own theory about religions.

I have already written a fair bit about my religious theory in bits and pieces, so, now I need to try to write them in a better order, therefore, I would like to write my theory down properly before I become too old to do that; I believe that my religious theory may very well be a lot closer to the real truth of how religious things really are, and if it is not, then anyone who wants to change it in the future is welcome to do so.

At this point of time some of my religious writings could be called, Prayers of Reconciliation, just because I see myself saying lots of prayers while I am writing them, I feel that it is necessary to say these prayers during my writing, so that, I would feel surer of myself after prying God to help me. The name of my religious writings perhaps needs to be changed in the end and it might be called Reconciliation of the Universe; I need to do this because any changes to the existing religions needs to be reconciled, and I have to write many prayers during my writings since this is the only way that God would allow me to make some changes from the existing today religions, I have also to admit that if I pray God while I am writing I would not feel threatened if I say something wrong just in case. Now that I have said this let us go back and start all over again from another point of view, in our reconciliation forum?

Religions and why we have them.



In this reconciliation forum, the intention of these religious writings is that we would like to find a way that can improve our present religious situation and if possible bring all religions together.

So, what can be done one may ask?

I would have to say that this religious issue is not a single issue and raises more questions and more issues, which are usually hard to answer. You see if it was easy this sort of religious problem would have been solved a long time ago. So we may as well start thinking seriously what can be done.

To start talking about religious issues the very first question that comes to our minds is this: Is there really a god as a lot of religious people believe? Then, we may start asking more questions again, if there is a god what this god would be like? Is this god just the way it is believed to be in the Bible? And we may be asking these sorts of questions for a very long time, without being able to come to a complete understanding of the whole situation. So let us try to talk about what some people believe and let us see if we are able to find a way about how to solve these existing religious problems.

Now that we have stated again what we are looking for, let us see what people generally believe and say about these religious issues. In order to do that we need to separate people in different groups because that is the only way that will give us a clear picture of what is going on in the religious world of today. Now, if we do that what do we find at the opposite end of these groups? We find the believer and the unbelievers, which have argued for centuries about these very issues. Of course there are many other groups as well and many different religions that oppose each others; but here just to make things easier we want to start talking about these two different groups that stand worlds apart. The only thing that these two groups have in common is that they believe that they are right in believing what they believe; therefore the other groups are wrong. Here I am talking about the theists and the atheists that stand in opposition to each other on religious matters.

Let us see if there might be a way to minimize their differences, of course theists and atheists are not the only groups that do not agree with each others, as there are other groups and other issues that clash in with one another everywhere; therefore, we need to look for a way that might help just about any religious group, but that is easier said than done.

Now, since the atheists stand against all sorts of religions, because they believe that there is no God, and therefore they stand in opposition to all other religions, which believe or might believe that there is God, or at least believe that there are spiritual forces that somehow guides humanity. If we take in consideration all these facts, then it would be fair to say that first of all we need to work out how to deal with the atheists, since this is the biggest issue as it involves all other religions.

Now I have to say that the atheists do not see that they are doing any harm to religions, since the only thing that they state is that they do not believe that there is a god. But at the same time the atheists try to preach their own theory or beliefs to the believers, by telling them that God is more harm than anything else, so it would be better if they forget about their God. This attitude that they have is just as bad as those extremist religious believers that go around preaching their own beliefs to such an extremity that could even kill if you do not agree with them, so, how do we decide who is better and who is worse, who is right and who is wrong: I think that we need to start analysing these groups and let us start with the atheists.

Who are the Atheists?  

The Atheists are those people that do not believe in God and above all God’s creation; they believe that there is no God and that God is all an invention that our forbears created, because they did not know any better at those times. We have to admit that there is a small chance that they might be right, so let us just imagine their theory of how things evolved about religions.

In the beginning somehow, somewhere, somebody started talking about the existence of God. I suppose they started believing in God because they wanted to believe about God just because it was a higher power that could help them when they were in trouble, anyhow the existence of God started somehow.

The atheists’ theory is very much like this: It might have happened that once these beliefs of the existence of God became known, the community leader of those times found that by using these beliefs in God or gods they could control better the rest of the community, so, they started to add things themselves and so they used these religious beliefs to their own advantage. And from then onward there has always been something added to these religious beliefs whenever there was a need to do so.

Now if we really consider this atheistic theory about religions, we have to admit that there is a small chance that they might be right, because today there is no really evidence of the existence of God. But then again one starts to see all those people that have believed in God in the past, all those places of worship that they have built, all these religious services that are still going on these days and at once we believe that God really might exist. Now, let us look to these atheists groups in a different way, let us see really who these atheists are and how they fit in the community, and above all what the rest of the community might think about them.

The Atheists

Most religious people nowadays think that atheists are nasty people and that, they do not know much about God and religions. This assumption is based on the facts that they do not believe in God and religions and they are not aware of what is written in the Bible. But I believe that this is not the case at all, so, let me tell you how I see these atheists groups, since I have had some correspondence with several of them, so I have formed a clear idea of what they are like and what they believe.

The atheists for me can mainly be divided in two groups, the first group is formed by very learned people (today this is the larger group by far), these learned people do not believe in God not because they have not read the Bible; but because what is written in the Bible does not add up the way that is supposed to add up, in other words the Bible for them is just a book of stories written for the purpose of controlling the people.

The second group (this is only a small minority), it is formed by people who are of very bad character, so for them God does not exist, just because it is convenient to them when they do nasty deeds, this is the reason why many people think that atheism is a nasty group of people.  There might be a few more other sorts of atheists, but generally this is what I believe atheists are like.

Having said what these atheists are like, it is obvious that we need to find a way that somehow will neutralize them, we have to make sure that the way we choose will also agree with other religious issues, so, now let us see what other religious issues exist today.

Other religious problems

As we have already stated before there are many religious issues to be solved, the biggest religious problem is caused by the religions themselves, because lots of religions are somehow different to one another, and also, any believer in one religion believes that their own religion is the true religion, therefore, the other religions are wrong and the believers of the other religious are wrong to believe what they believe, this has always been so since ancient recorded times. Here again this problem arises because there is not a unifying point that unifies all religions. This is the reason why I sometimes think that we need a super religion, or a super God able to show the entire world that we are all the same in the eyes of God, that is if there is a real god somehow the way that is written in the Bible. What about if there is no real god and the real god is very much different to the existing god that we believe in today, so now let me see if I can find a way of stating that God really exists, so next chapter we will be talking about god again, But this God is going to be somehow different from the God described in the Bible and this god could be even accepted by the atheists. We really need to accept God as it is because man needs God, as we have already said in these religious writings. So, let me try to show you God as I see Him/it, because as I said, Man needs God. I really hope that the atheists accept a sort of God, or perhaps a life-force-energy that is capable to make life possible on earth. I hope also that all existing religions try to find a way how to believe in the same God and therefore do not argue with each others.
Here I have to say that sometimes I consider myself to be an agnostic person just because sometimes I don’t believe in God the way I have been thought when I was young, but at the same time I pray to God, even if the God I pray to is different from the God I was thought to pray, what I have just said may not make sense just now, but if one day I finish to write my religious writings it will make sense then.
Anyhow, I think that I have said enough in this chapter, so see you next time in my next chapter called, Man needs God and religious views and conversations.
