Our world is, literally, in flames, as radical religious people of all creeds fight against one another (and sometimes among themselves) over who is right or wrong.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world is subjected to their insanity and are trapped in the middle.
At the same time, there are many that are NOT radical, but live with severe hypocrisy. This can be just as bad, if not worse, than those who radically fight for their causes.
In this episode, we explore some of the issues going on, as well as some solutions that could make a difference.
This episode is probably going to make you mad.

The following are the show notes used in the recording of this show. They are here for your reference and convenience.
What are some of the problems we have due to religion?
Islamic extremism and all of the problems associated with it
Destruction, chaos, murders and beheadings, mistreatment of anyone not like them, etc.
Judgmental and hypocritical Christians and all of the hatred that goes with it, especially against anyone that wants to follow someone different or BE different from what is considered normal.
It even breeds racism, since a lot of the religious affiliations are associated with a certain race or another primarily (mostly due to the areas the religion was formed in).
Most of all, between them all, the people who just want to remain out of the whole mess are still caught in the middle. It is nearly impossible, unless you do something radical in your lifestyle, like living on a mountain somewhere and never dealing with people, to stay away from any of it.
Even laws are based on religious beliefs, some to the point that if you don’t follow a certain belief system, you can be punished. Sometimes severely.
And that’s just TODAY, let alone throughout history!
Historically, religious beliefs have contributed to keeping societies as a whole down and, often, are the focal points for wars and killings.
Why is this happening?
Did you know that the three primary religions responsible for the most chaos going on right now all stem from the same place?
Abraham is the spiritual father of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
All tat you see going on in the Middle East right now is literally a blood feud between brothers. And the rest of us are paying the price for it.
Yet, this fact is rarely acknowledged by the mainstream, or the religions, themselves.
Here’s How I See It…
We are all just trying to find the center of things.
