Why Religion Is Mistaken

Religions make the error of telling us what god is. The great historical problem with this is that, given there is no empirical evidence for god, we draw upon what we know to describe the divine. But at any one time in our history, we have never known everything and in fact, looking back, can be said to have known next-to-nothing about nature and so all our descriptions are created in ignorance.

We can say, with emphasis, that soul and goodness never change and that creative genius is eternal but the moment we engage our gods in the world and with us, we drawn them to our limited understanding. 

The great tragedy of this is that as we learn more, what we thought we knew is challenged but we are loathe to give up what we thought we knew so we justify our ignorances in any way we can. This only ever leads to conflicts.

We should keep god metaphysical and give up on religions, codifications and all dogma. We are simple too ignorant to be able to judge.
