"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

The Riddle of the Inexplicable Lunacy of Religious Warfare

Now, were we (in the royal sense of "we," you understand)  to abjure as insane the practitioner of some assorted and senseless mayhem upon humanity,  then we were to be applauded as quite reasonable. Howsoever, if we were to opine that a hoary, long standing, time honored and venerable religion were guilty of the same then we were quite out of season.

How comes this, you ask?

Unfortunately, that question is out of order. It is simply tradition and may not be questioned. To do so is indicative of a rather nasty bit of bad manners in the questioner, don't you know. It were tantamount to the pulling of one's pants down and defecating in public, for instance. (Sorry for the frank language. But it needs must be said.)

So, thus, we glibly ignore the hecatombs of human immiseration and death continuously piling up ever and anon at the altars of religious fervor. And what is the object of worship of  this immemorial legacy of such inhumane insanity?

Must you ask? It is, of course, the love and worship of Money! The which, is merely a charade, a chimerical invention-- like the zero. Yet, we are enslaved and in mental fetters, as it were, and still, to this day, ready to kill or be killed at the drop of a hat, if anyone, in authority,  were to pronounce that money no longer had any value.

Alas, this is the sorry and sad state of affairs in which humanity, even at this late stage of its existence, continues to find itself. Will we ever outgrow this delusion?



That is the question.
