We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

My God - The majority of religions talk in terms of My God. My God is ownership of God. My God invariably becomes a collective Our God, truth, and dogma. Our God dogma makes us right and you wrong. Or, us being saved and you being damned. Harris proposed, "the central tenant of every religious tradition is that all others are mere repositories of error or, at least, dangerously incomplete. Intolerance is thus intrinsic to every creed." (2004) Dogma makes our religion having an exclusive knowledge of God, and that makes us superior. Religions have views of reality documented in their dogma. Religious dogma supports a theology of separation. Separation theology divides the superior from the inferior. For Eldredge, "cultural ideas seem deeply embedded in human life that other people are inferior." (2004) Wilson said, “religious exclusion and bigotry arise from tribalism, and the belief in the innate superiority and special status of the in-group.” (1998) I argue that the belief that others are inferior is especially pronounced for religion ---> our faith makes us special with our God. And, let me point out that My/Our God has led to holocaustic behaviors of annihilation, purification, and genocide to those who have the audacity to dare-to-differ from my/our truth. Question: “How much of this My God mentality has contributed to the instability of the world we live in?”#Balanceology.net

My god.

Your god.

What the fuck is the error code to tend to speak to?

I've heard it's a 404 error, even worse something such as a Jesus worship error.

Eldredge -given the short quote as is is wrong. Not your article. Culture knows no barriers really. Opera [yuk] is global. so is jazz. now. blues. theatre. The Stones! Maybe he meant 'ideology'
