Most people stop thinking when it comes to god or religion.
Some more so than others, even the most intellectual among them. Adherents of some religions more so than others.
We just blindly believe what we have been told or taught.
Most of us don't even read the religious book upon which our beliefs are said to be based.
It is as if whatever we have been told or taught is the truth, the whole complete truth of the faith we hold to.
It is as if, even if we do read, we must not question what we have been told or taught.
However, most religious books do warn adherents to question and test what they are are told or taught, to test its veracity and truth.
Then, why is it particularly hard for people to entertain the possibility that what we have been told or taught as the religious truth may be a corruption or even a lie?
We would rather swallow everything that is told or taught us than to read and think for ourselves to check against the good book whether indeed what we have been told or taught by the priests, pastors or ulamas is really what the good book says.
If we are hoping to gain the favour of the god of our faith, don't we think that it is mighty important and crucial that we are really following what the true message is and not indeed departing from it?
And indeed, when we do find that we have been lied to or misled all along by the priests, pastors and ulamas and yet we persist in the infamy, do we think god is mocked?
Or are we the fools?
