    In all religions on every continent there are stories and myths that do not hold up to common sense, may have an inner deeper meaning or not.

    Are we spiritualy mature enough to reject all dogmas, myths, fables, legends in religions regardless of origin and embrace the inner spiritual, and social teachings?

    Simply put: NO.
    You wanna see people **** near take your head off
    bring up religion smh...
    Im into spirtuality and reject ALL religious dogma, being duped by it in the past.

    And I always have one question for Religious people?
    What religion did God himself say he created in any of the Holy books?
    For all I see here on earth is MANMADE dogmas,
    that many times have nothing to do w/ what God says,
    but ideologies of what MAN SAYS.

    Thank you brother, and this post was made in regards to how Malcolm X saw the dogmas in the religions as divisive, and not ethical and moral values and a understanding of the Creator,
    which is natural to all Black folks

    Hmmm...

    I think its a matter of putting things in proper perspective.

    People of antiquity knew that there was no man literally running around anatomically with the head of a hawk.
    Just as they knew that their was nobody walking on water or floating around possessing two of every animal on
    the planet. But something went wrong....Later on, folks actually believed these fantastic events externally, which will happen,
    whenever those who circumscribes the circumference of ones thoughts determines the diameter of ones thinking.

    However, the image(s) are allegorical.

    If one makes teaching entertaining, folks would more likely stay in tune. By capturing the imagination of the people,
    it makes easier to get ones point across. This was/is the intent of the fables, legends and myths that unfortunately,
    mutated into dogma.


    I think folks have the capacity to do it, as evinced by the remarks of many members of this discussion board regarding the issue.

    Yes the teachings are allegorical, but we take so much literaly and without researching that we will be making a religious holiday out of Misgiving Day and not want to know the real history of thankagiving, in the next 300 years
