Fairy Tales / Long-lived Creed of
Superbeing Religions

(Top Posts - Distance From Belief

Certainly, the ability to call fairy tales "Truth (tm)",
followed with you can't prove that "Truth (tm)"
wrong, is one of the most egregious crimes of
superbeing religions, for it tempts humans to place
any "make believe" fantasies they wish into a so-
called irrefutable "Truth (tm)", asserting absolute
authority over the affairs of humankind.

Lies-deceit-delusion? Matters not to such philos-
ophies when it comes to the "unknown", as the
fundamental approach of superbeing religions
is that there is no proof required for supernatural
claims, thereby turning upside down the notion
that doubt is justified when insufficient evidence
is provided regarding a claim.

They use fantastical claims to seduce and con
people into believing their versions of fairy tales
are "Truth (tm)" and that they'll become immortal
if they _________ (insert requirements here),
and they threaten people with _________ (insert
threats here) if they don't believe in their so-called
"Truth (tm)".

Evidence? Consideration of alternatives? Natur-
alism? Doubt? Open-minded pursuit of verity?

Always, with all religions with a vested interest in
the following long-lived creed, some other-beings,
some supernatural fantasies are given credit for
everything (especially if it's something humans like)
as the de facto explanation for existence, but if it's
something humans don't like, the blame for that is
placed on

o bad humans, and/or

o bad superbeings (you know, the devil
   fantasies), and/or

o superbeings justified in doing bad (you
   know, punishing bad humans), in which
   case it's thought of as "righteous" or
   "good", and

naturalism is treated as something beholden
to those uber-entities.

Doubt and open-minded search for verity are
derided as weaknesses when applied to reli-
gious claims, but doubt towards naturalism
-and- devout devotion to a mind open to reli-
gious myths is treated as good and admirable
(with kudos for religious faith and belief in the
supernatural).
