Religious Knowledge

Religious knowledge comes into being when someone has a speculation. He fancies himself so highly, he thinks this idea is so wonderful, he imagines it came direct from the creator of the universe. He does not test the idea. He sells it to others by claiming it is god’s idea, not his, and hence must be accepted without question. Everyone takes the idea on faith and declares it must never be updated, no matter what counter evidence is discovered. It may remain frozen in the minds of adherents for thousands of years. Religious knowledge is not an alternative path to truth. It is simply guesswork, barely worth the paper it is written on.
