There’s no need for religion
That sets man against man
And creates false, faith derived
Divides between us.
Understand that we know enough now
About the nature of the material
To know that we constitute something different.
All of us.
Forego your religion and open your mind.
Christ and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest
Were wise men who understood
And couched their insight in the language of the times.
Now you wake up and see
That religious dogmatism will lead
To the demise, through war and strife,
Of us and all that we know to be fundamentally wise.
For if God were to commit suicide
Then the matter of the universe would
Cease to be required.
