By Peter Ujj,Matt Henderson Ellis,Balazs Kantas,Daniel Danyi

surely, some of the most fascinating questions of humanity is whether or not there's better, final which means in the back of life, and if there's one, what it really is. to reply to this query, we now have been restlessly inventing and growing 1000s of gods simply to exploit them for it slow, then abandon them, and change them with more moderen and extra convincing motives of life. this is often how and why our gods are born, develop fit, powerful, and wonderful, till, sooner or later, they get ill and die. Western civilization has witnessed this birth-evolution-death cycle of gods for a very long time: Greek gods perished to offer lifestyles to Roman deities, Roman and barbarian idols died to provide upward thrust to the Judeo-Christian Yahweh. at the present time, in spite of the fact that, seeing the divisions inside of Christianity, the hopeless fight of Christian church buildings for Sunday worshipers, and glossy man’s obdurate resistance to the church buildings’ terrible spiritual-intellectual provide, we can’t support yet admit that even this robust and proud Judeo-Christian God-ideal that has so vigorously and drastically reigned over our tradition for 2 millennia is coming to its finish. the following we're back, witnessing a divine burial, and we can’t steer clear of posing the query: What’s next?

Are we going to show to another God now, might be fabric wealth, know-how, or technological know-how? and the way do we comprehend that those new gods won’t fail us again?

And what’s mistaken with our gods within the first position? With our ideals and religions? Why aren’t our gods certainly immortal as we so expectantly yearn them to be? Why do omnipotent religions, eventually, disgracefully prove on humanity’s dissecting desk? might be simply because what we’ve lengthy imagined as divinity is admittedly no more than a misinterpretation of the real nature of transcendence? maybe simply because all of our ancient gods weren’t gods, yet pathetic surrogates? probably it's time for guy to alter his method of the transcendental, formulating new questions that, rather than indulging our infantile notions of God, exhibit the genuine nature of the divine.

My duology Messages from Eden intends to discover the reason for the unquestionable finish of conventional religions. via a sequence of philosophical-religious, introspective articles, I invite the reader right into a meditative brooding about of questions similar to evolution and production, beginning and dying, morality and sin, altruism and selfishness, faith and cause, self and ego, fact and phantasm, society and the person, guy and God, lifestyles and lifestyles. even if my writing does sometimes take an summary philosophical nature, i attempted to maintain my meditations as reasonable as attainable, continuously in the framework of daily human life.

I humbly belief that our considering jointly may help the reader re-discover their innermost self and human essence from a special perspective.
