We were brought into a religious reality because we were/are young, may be even dumb.......looking for something better ......... maybe magical. Something that pretends to be a cure...something that offer's a hope.
We didn't realize that it was make believe. That it takes a lot of effort to believe in a reality that simply doesn't exist.
Just about everyone on this forum has been fooled by this religion. Just about every one in this world has been fooled by false hopes....... be it a religion, or a mass movement of someone else's political reality.
We can only understand how we were fooled......... if ever.....by looking back. That rear view mirror shows us clearly where we have been.......but not where we are going.
Your past is over. You were foolish ........ so were we.
Going forward you have two choices....step up or step down.
And here's a final point.....you didn't seek out this forum to step down. Non of us are stepping down. We are each on a journey....... separate but determined not to be played the fool again. Someone else will have to be the village idiot.....we resigned.
