The Danger of Monotheism

monotheism-consequencesMonotheism is one of the most dangerous ideology humanity has ever faced.

Monotheism is even more dangerous than fascism, nazism, and apartheid because it looks benign in the surface and most people even don’t realize how it deeply affects the way they think and the way they behave in their daily life.

First, monotheist societies are the most violent, and they are the ones that have committed the most crimes and genocides during the last 2000 years in the name of God.

The biggest danger in the monotheist conception of the world is that there is a unique God, and one single Truth that is universal and exclusive of any other forms of beliefs.

Today’s monotheists are in majority descendants of defeated ancestors. Most have become so under the threat of weapons, and killings. Only few people converted willingly to monotheist religions.

The basic thinking behind monotheism is “You are with us or you are against us”, and “you join us or you perish!”

Regardless of the fact that most people are not anymore religious, for example in the West, the monotheist thinking paradigm still affects holistically their societies and continue to drive their daily way of thinking and behaving.

If you are not similar, you are a threat.
If you don’t think and act like, you are ostracized.
People are tolerant only between themselves, and rude and aggressive to people who are not similar to them.
People like you if you adopt their way of life and way of thinking, otherwise they hate you.
They ask you to go away if you won’t conform to their lifestyle or ideology.
Tolerance and compassion apply only to people who are similar to them.

Most people can’t even perceive the affect of monotheism fundamentalism on their laic, and even mundane life style.

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” ~Seneca

We have the obligation to fight monotheism as vigorously as we fight nazism, fascism and apartheid, because they all belong to the same family of evil ideologies that separates and divide humanity.

If after reading this message, you hate me, you are probably from a monotheist society.
