The essence of religion.

Religion is just a big sham to cover up something that’s too aweful to behold.

A sham is something foisted on the many by a few. It was easy back when, when there was little knowledge, and that was locked up in the halls of the powerful. Now, of course, we still have the shamsters, but knowledge and the ability to reason are more readily available, exposing the sham to those who look past the faith-beyond-reason they’ve been made heir to. The blame has now shifted to the many who let themselves be duped through apathy or emotional manipulation–about which there is now plenty of external warning.

and the funny thing is, the thing that is awful to behold, is not that bad to undergo.
