Each different religion is a different game, each game with a different outcome, but each game with the same source. Our perceptions, leading to questions…
How did things get to be as they are?
Which leads to… why?
Which leads to… how should things be?
Science is methodical, rational, step-by-step, takes pains to not stray from pure perception. While science is like myriad strings of knowledge, arising from from Truth, religion is bold, quickly expanding then refining balloons – more likely to float away or burst, but if treated carefully, its metaphors and symbology gently deflated to the source, it can serve equally validly as a journey to truth.
Chinese Whispers may transmute God to Sin, but if you travel back from Sin with your eyes wide open, you will inevitably get back to God.
