WHAT HE SAYS
This talk by Douglas Adams is as close to my view of religion as anything I've heard. My only addendum would be that the advantage we gained by our creative tool making began to turn against us when the god-in-our-image-therefore-we in-god's-image idea convinced mankind that the energy being however manipulated through the tool need not be that of the employer (mini-god) himself, ie. slavery, monarchy, fire arms, remote control, fuel consumption. Any tool that further removed us from the nature of our actions for the pleasure of effortless convenience has accelerated the evaporation of the puddle as surely as the artificially fed overpopulation's belief in it's exceptionality to the ways of nature.
