Personally, I believe (and this is just my own opinion -- right or wrong) ALL "Religions" are Institutionalized & Ritualistic Forms of Mind Control & THE Very Basis of ALL the Governments & Monarchies on this Planet to Control & Subjugate EVERYONE & EVERYTHING. ALL by DESIGN. Mankind was originally created with an inner desire to Praise & Worship THE Creator/God & to eventually take the place of the Fallen Angels in heaven who rebelled against our true Creator/God. That Original Plan was hi-jacked by the Fallen Ones & man has been given a SUBSTITUTE GOD to worship in the form of "RELIGION" -- ANY "RELIGION". Since man was created with this inner desire to Praise & Worship SOMETHING or SOMEONE & if ALL "RELIGIONS" are stripped away from him, then he is STILL going to Praise & Worship WHATEVER is placed before him -- or he will turn inward & worship HIMSELF. Since so many humans prefer a transcendent god, one will be provided for them in the form of an "ET" or "Alien" with "lying signs & wonders."
