IS MATERIALISM THE NEW RELIGION?
The interesting thing about religion is the fact, that we call it FAITH in the supernatural entity i.e. God... but those who practice it somehow believe it's KNOWLEDGE of God... but any educated person knows there's a distinct difference between FAITH and KNOWLEDGE... yet, many get annoyed if challenged... what's disturbing is that claims of KNOWLEDGE are springing up everywhere these days in materialism... to the point where materialism has evolved into religions... for example, if you fund an unhealthy product that earns you millions you are put on the cover of top magazines and called KNOWLEDGE-ABLE... same goes for academics, politicians, and various leaders... they no longer need to prove themselves through action and/or results, they simply need a diploma or enough backers, and they are deemed as KNOWLEDGE-ABLE... I recently had an interesting experience... I spoke to investors of ONE COIN, a scheme that claims to mine cryptocurrency... when I pointed out that owners offer NO PROOF OF MINING, other than their word, I was angrily told that they KNOW the currency was being mined because they saw the computer algorithm rolling out on the computer screen, and that I should STOP spreading bad energy... so, I ask myself... have we exchanged our desire (greed) for an eternal life with a desire for financial wealth? In other words, I may or may not go to heaven, but I'm going with a Rolls Royce :-)
