Recently I was commenting on religion as being something we hold on to because our lives are finite and the thought of it ceasing is very painful. It is something that occupies our mind, and that leads on to the effect of our minds on our bodies.
It is easy to see why mankind invented religion. A few years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. Looking up the internet resulted in me anticipating not celebrating Christmas at the end of the year. Frightening.
The problem with the Internet is that information stays on it for years and consequently can be quite wrong.
