Religion vs. Nature

The history of most early religions formulated a dualistic split between spirit and body. This split put us above the Animal Kingdom. It made us superior to other creatures in Nature. This superiority of humans led to an anthropocentric view of humans. This dualistic split lead to the natural bodily instincts of humans as being inferior. This  vilification, desecration, denigration, and contamination stance against human nature is due to a religious fear of human instincts. This fear led to the demonization and dehumanization of us as being sinners. The Big 3 religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) are dismissive towards science, learning, and women’s rights. They employ obscurantism in their opposition to any intellectual advancement that remotely interferes with their beliefs. Fearful religions create troublesome inconvenient truths that contradict scientific established facts (eg. Creationism in place of Darwinism) Invective religions antipathetic indoctrination against Nature has sadly done a lot to throw humans off balance —> often permanently (more to come).
