I would never want to be so hypnotized by something simply because it is allegedly the "best we have." You may as well turn your imagination, intuition, and creativite abilities to the ‘off’ position. I feel bad for you.
BS, I've gone to church every sunday as a child and even throughout most of my teenage years. Even when I was 7 years old in sunday school being asked by 'an adult' if "I've accepted the lord jesus christ as lord and my personal saviour..." < I thought this was weird and creepy then but only obliged because they were an adult and my mother and father taught me to obey my elders. Also, my mother was always the religous, and responded very emotionally to things that weren't rational or logically balanced.
My dad on the other hand was quite the opposite, extremely logical, very well read, and a college graduate. I always admired him because he would ask me as a young boy what I learning in school. I could tell him anything form math to science to history and he would be able to discuss this information with and answer questions with surprising accuracy even being out of school for as long as he has. I've always admired that about him and always wanted to be like him.
My mother on the other hand could never help me with homework, she wasn't very well educated but a very good, caring and loving mother who taught me right from wrong regardless of wanting me to go church. She was devastated when I told her in my early 20's that I didn't believe in the things that she did whatsoever. She thought she failed as a mother, she thought she let the rest of the family down. She thought that my path in the future was destroyed....It drove a wedge within my relationship with her for while for being honest with her. Well, it was not, not by a long shot.
Needless to say, I'm an adult now, am very well read, and a college graduate as well. I've followed math, science, technology and engineering with great enthusiasm throughout my working career as a design engineer and now in a field that absolutely enjoy because it promotes learning and understanding of engineering. The fact that we have science, physics and mathematical engineering principals that describe behavior of motion to the behavior of materials on a grand scale or to the very micro scale. I enjoy 'knowing' why there was an effect on something and interrogating the cause and vice versa. This is done every day in science and engineering to understand our world and most importantly ourselves. It's why we drive automobiles instead of horse and buggy, it's why we can fly a 300 person passenger plane 35,000 ft in air at 350 mph and travel around the globe in mere hours. It's how we put a man on the moon and it's how we have instant communication via the internet as we do today that you yourself even use.
Give someone religion and a bible with nothing else with no more information.... that is just describing 3rd world countries and the most violent parts of today's cultures on this planet today. And here you sit, mocking the very information that gets people out of that ignorant culture. Knowing about our world lets us transcend away from thinking we will fulfill a superstitious afterlife for whatever ridiculous reason.
So BS, I think I've done a very good job of why you should feel more sorry for yourself....
I don't expect much of a response from, after all, you want people to go back to the past and pretend that we don't know anything and let superstition be are celestial guide.
