My original point is that you should not blame religion for the failings of human nature. Whatever type of society or philosophy or religion or atheism, you look at you can find atrocities. People will warp whatever is convenient to suit their (evil) needs.
But then you might say the failings of human nature is the cause of all suffering. That’s why I get frustrated at people blaming God for our suffering.
In one way I can see why they say that, as if God really did make everything, then it must have made evil. And I think he/she/ it probably did, but I feel certain that he had very good reason for doing so.
Having never looked at religion properly maybe this is how the ‘separation from god’ people talk about exists? I’m ignorant in this whole area where intellect is concerned, intuition is all I have.
If so then I ‘get that part of it’.
