The Cave man

Take your Children for shopping, buy them some toys, your son picks up a gun, and your daughter invariably picks up a doll. I know your son wants to shoot down all the bad guys over there and the computer games offer him more violence.

Booza Tooza two cave men three million years ago.
Booza hunts and gathers food for his woman and children.
BOINK! Cave man Tooza clubs Booza and takes away his food.
Booza is pissed because this happens every day.
Booza Complains to the chief.
Tooza says I hungry I eat.
Chief says Booza food
Tooza says I hungry I eat.
This stealing Bad
What Bad ?
Stealing wrong bad, not good
what wrong what bad what good ? I hungry I eat.

Now you have to make Tooza understand what is right and what is wrong. He has a point, he was hungry and he ate. Poor guy does not know what is good what is bad or what is right and what is wrong.

Best way to make him understand is by cooking up a story, Tell him a story how somebody took food which was not his and he was struck by a lightning. Use the best of your imagination, add masala.

All our holy books are nothing but stories and stories.
Why not just give a book of rules ?
No it will not work. You have to make them understand, so give them stories along with the user manual.

After 4 million years we have crossed the usefulness of such holy books but unfortunately we still cling on to them. We don't mind insulting our intelligence and we are not ashamed to accept that we are still Booza and Tooza and we cannot behave without these holy books. We grow up reading them. Stories full of violence, chopping of heads, blood everywhere. Yes only the heads of bad guys were chopped because there were no lethal injections back then.

Please don't call me and say my religion does not advocate violence, mine is a religion of peace. Spare me please.
Which religion advoctes violence ?
They all talk of peace, all of them, with stories of war murder spilling of blood chopping of heads.

And please don't be surprised if your son picks up a gun in a toy shop.
Salute the toy makers, violence sells.

After 4 million years human mind may have evolved
but human nature remains the same.
Hi Mary Jo
Hi Booza
Hi Tooza

"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death "
-Albert Einstein

When men stop believing in God, it isn't that they then believe in nothing: they believe in everything. - Umberto Eco
