get god on your side

October 28, 2005 at 11:30 pm | Posted in religion & politics | 1 Comment

One of the reasons superstitions like religion remain in our golden age of science is that they can be used to increase personal power. If I can convince people that it is not just my will, rather, it is God’s will, then I have given myself ultimate authority. That is the kind of authority you need to launch wars, execute criminals and invade non-aggressive states. It can be used positively too – but is it really a positive thing for an action to motivated out of a desire to avoid the wrath of God?
