It's your job to disagree, or your job to be God in disguise?

both, but i was refering to a comment made by the author of the site who said that it is the job of religion to point out that we are gods in disguise.
religion does precisely the opposite. it (religion.) represses the consciousness and installs guilt, anxiety and a desperate will for us to gain approval from others by performing morally good acts.
this conditioning is precisely why our society operates this way and why we are spiritually bankrupt.

Well, I agree with you, but then I know nothing, because how can we have a fully-functioning society, with symbiotic relationship between its various participants, and then say it is bankrupt?

See my latest post, Real-life theology.

ok, some distinctions need to be made. it functions for those who are mechanical and materialistic (objective and rational and, um, reasonable......) but those of us who wish to be fascinated by bees and frost on the moors and green space as a part of a functional community and musicianship and a keen eye for colour, well, we are surplus to the needs of a society that is designed to churn out a product to buy a product to replace a product........etc.
