A lot of judaism and christianity is borrowed from the Persians' Zoroastrian religion, but I don't wish to go into that... What I'm interested to know is who gives a sh** about whatever value that divides us instead of uniting us? All of our collective religions mean NOTHING, when they divide us in our humanity and don't mean sh** when they fail to unite us as the simple species we are, on the face of the planet, for the very short amount of time we are here..... Who cares what system one is born to or what rituals one gets at burial when the whole point is that you didn't get the point of life? That you were here at a certain point in time, among your fellow humans wherever that happened to be, and instead of watching the sunrises and sunsets, you pre-occupied yourself with silly little rituals that separated you from the rest of your pack.....missing the beauties of your differences..... Pretty sad, don't you think?
