Answer to below: I'm losing interest in conflict resolution. I made a possibly unwise attempt at broad religious inclusion.
You're obviously right, though.
I find my own religiousy opinions to be scattered at best, but now that i've gone so far off the beaten path i get the strong and unavoidable sense that i'm surrounded by sheep who use belief as an ideological shield.
I almost managed to reject that very depressing theory... When i spoke to some people, casually on such subjects, but then i realized that it was because they were shielding the religion instead of themselves... Which sounds perfectly fine, but is basically just white knighting.
Essentially, i suspect that i'm better deconstuction than most, which is probably because most people dont bother with it (and they shouldn't).
It's to the point where Christians self implode within a minute of talking to me.
Some guy pulled the "Have you heard about Jesus Christ?" on me.
I was stunned, because obviously yes, considering where i live, so i was literally at a loss for words.
So i asked: "Have you heard of Horus?"
Dude immediately calls him Satan. I had to prevent myself from beating him, not because i'm defending anything, but because that's a clearly toxic reaction.
Imagine if i had of said "have you heard of Mohammed?"
I have a sense of what a religious framework is since i built a shoddy, unique one.
At this point i find myself asking the question: Has most inter-religious conversation up until now been nothing but people tossing their religion's ancient parables and catch phrases at each other?
I think Christianity is allergic to independant thought. With all of islam's divisions, im not sensing the same issue there, because, bluntly, most muslims are probably hyper-aware of the possibly of their beliefa becoming ISIS-radicalized, so they discriminate the scripture, now, when they didnt, previously.
Christianity, meanwhile, assumes they dont have anything to do with the west's war apparatus, and they think a few dirt poor illiterate angsty war torn young men going on rampages somehow validates Christianity as the correct religion.
Frig, i probably sound like antifa. Ugh. An agnostic point of view is probably best.
I could rant like this for an hour. I'm getting the very strong impression that most people who are like me simply abandoned the discussion, and say stuff like "Oh, im on the fence." etc
It leaves what i sense to be a void in belief based matters.
