Yoda: On Religion – Link List

Got Crowd? BE the Force!

Overheard at dinner in Afghanistan:

Religion is the space between the dots, science the dots, and philosophy the mind-set that blends the two. Education, intelligence (decision-support) and research are the sources and methods for achieving integral consciousness — godliness in spirt, integrity in fact, and heaven on earth in community.

Religions can be evaluated in relation to their emphasis on dogma over behavior, compliance over innovation, and exclusiveness over inclusiveness.

Religion, along with money, is one of the greatest counter-intelligence threats to the integrity of the US Government.

Community with clarity, dignity, and integrity is displacing organized religion as a foundation for using transparency to find truth and truth to create trust.

The left in America bears as much responsibility for the loss of faith and religion as does the right for its peversion. Religion became corrupt, divorced from any focus on the public interest, and instead a tool for mobilizing political power in support of the few instead of on behalf of the many.
