Generation after generation, humans are adapting new habits, knowledge, and myths. It is funny what makes knowledge on the same line with mythologies. Many nations concentrate on discoveries and economies, however, keep a red line when it comes to belief. Why are many religious habits unquestionable if their scholars claim they are true? Besides, people hear about worshiping many idols, cows, gods, sons of god, bhagwans, ...etc. The claim of the dying and resurrection of the son of god also had similar stories throughout: Egyptian son of god, Horus; Persian sons of god, Mithra and Tammuz; Greek son of god, Dionysus; Indian sons of god, Yeshua and Krishna. Isn’t there supposed to be one true son and many fake, or are they all just the same human-made mythology? They all talk about historical miracles, but was any of them ever proven? These doubts still fill many minds. Many humans seem to be relaxed and calm, refusing to even think about their own faith. Do they really agree that they should listen like a baby, believing in whatever is told to them? So let us look at some figures to critically think for ourselves, which is a religion and which is a mythology.
Yet, political and cultural influence are still corrupting the original religious principles, till this moment. For example, Judaism got rid of the historical son of god myths; but many Jews are still influenced by the Zionist politics, clamming to have the right of the holy land of Jerusalem, by force. Also stating that the land is for the descendants of Abraham, but denying that the Arabs are descendants of Abraham, too. Jerusalem has been a multi-faith land for thousands of years, holding historical architecture of many faiths. I really don't believe it should stay occupied by a single faith state like Israel: killing and kicking out Arab Jews, Christians and Muslims from their homes. Some Zionist Jews still claim that Palestine is a new name given by Arabs, even though their holy book mentions the name of the land, stating, “And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time” (Genesis KJV 21:34). Another example, is the influence that is still dividing Christians, having different opinions in many core beliefs of Christianity. Jesus, the Messiah--savior, always taught to worship God and pray to God, not himself. Nevertheless, Muslims are recently claimed to be terrorists, even though their holy book never allowed so, stating: “O you who believe, do not consume each others' properties illicitly - only mutually acceptable transactions are permitted. You shall not kill yourselves. GOD is Merciful towards you” (Quran 4:29). Furthermore, those regime radicals, whom call themselves Muslims, don’t even represent 1% of the 1.6 billion population. Likewise, an estimate of 5% still disbelieve that HIV is the cause of Aids. Should we believe that, too? History explains that the Holy Roman Empire also ruled and forced Christianity in many nations, murdering in the name of Christ. In addition, Phillip Jenkins, a professor of Humanities in the Pennsylvania State University, discussed his studies about more bloody scriptures in the Bible than the Quran on Aljazeera TV. However, that still doesn’t mean all Christians are terrorists, as those versus are actually against murdering innocents and only allowed self defense. Nevertheless, to logically conclude which is a religion and which is a mythology: we need to separate political and cultural influence from the religion, to understand what is it really about.
