Religion is an allegory created to interpret the external world and its relationship with the internal consciousness. Philosophical and existential conundrums of ancient Man were answered by religion and religion has sufficed ever since as a convenient tool of control and instilling fear. Yet perception has broadened significantly since the age when religion was a sufficient answer to the ever burning question; what is the meaning of life? Creationists fear the questions that arise in the absence of religion and are willing to negate the teachings of science in favour of their lunatic theories about 'Intelligent Design' and that God created the universe and all matter.
Don't tell the creationists, there would be no point because they would only blindly dismiss it; but recently, scientific studies have uncovered signs that human life on Earth is likely to have started from other worldly substances. Meteorites travelling from across the universe are believed to have contained the genetic material necessary to begin human life, seeding ancient Earth and paving the way for our existence.
So, for the meaning of life we must turn to a powerful entity, a Prophet of humanistic logic, an intellectual saviour; no, not God, but Richard Dawkins. In his new documentary series, he provides us with the answers that religion and creationists deny us of. Disturbingly, it is believed that the world is filled with closet atheists who conceal themselves in fear of archaic heretical stigma harvested by the religious arena.
If you question your faith and are unsure about your spiritual identity, read The God Delusion; it is an invaluable piece of literature for those that wish to free themselves of religious constraints, begin life as a true human being and become the controller of their existence.
Dominant religious ideologies must be challenged; Atheists, stand up and unite!
