- A faith, the belief in some kind of superior protector power?
- a book?
- a social control institution...
Yes. Because many people talk religion' associating this word to those things quoted above. Even here, oh, many times here, in this forum.
Always somebody begins to talk about religion, soon, the discussion inflames. And then, we see or read the persons, quickly, deviating from the central theme - the WHAT - to talk in Bibles and even to quote (think, write) excerpts of these books.
Others, they concentrate the thinking in social aspects of the Religion in a conventional link among Religion and Churchs. This association isn't needed. In fact, with the current advance of the religious thinking, one thing can and even must exist without the other.
And, about faith like a fundament of all religions, here, the question is what is faith e faith in what?
And also, why religion is associated to ritual, (sometimes, very weird rituals)?
OK, Let's meditate.
