Are you talking Megalith religion or something more recent?


It’s hard to talk about religion without running into strawmen. That’s the problem. How do you define religion without creating a strawman, or quoting someone who amounts to a strawman?

I would say that there aren’t answers, because the act of breaking strawmen cancels out something very close to 100% of religion’s answers. So what’s left? We’re left looking at the original texts and quite a bit of work, sharing square one with philosophers and physicists.

That’s the difference - philosophers and physicists don’t need the revelatory texts at all. The world is the “text”.
