Random Thoughts on Religion
I am fascinated by the history of religions. The way they shape and are shaped by the societies they evolve and grow in. The way religions influence each other. The way they grow and splinter, even the most tightly hierarchical ones. The way a sufficiently imaginative and charismatic person can create one out of thin air. The ways they are reshaped to suite the needs of the power elite of the countries they grow in. The ways so many of the founders of religions are perfect examples of Nietzsche’s Will to Power.
