spacelizard667 Posted May 22, 2015 #476 Share Posted May 22, 2015 I will agree that ego is an important part of the self, and it also defines intent. What good is anybody's philosophy, theory, folk belief, or their religion if it does not empower that individual ? If it doesn't then it is time to move on and look further for the answers. For example: people have been taught they need to seek salvation per se because of original sin. I am not a huge fan of this very dehumanizing religious belief that there is first of all an original sin that we're born with that taints and targets women (and of course men too, by birth). We can all live without this unless you want to acknowledge that this has always served the purpose for which it was contrived, to keep women under the heel of the male ego via religious authority. I don't think that men are any holier than women are and whether they are Christian, Muslim, Jews, Buddhists, or any other religion on earth.
