thank you for representing my idea correctly shockwave.
ahmed, there is a difference between spiritual idealism (religion) and physical pragmatism (rational behavior).
when you start to speak about god and religion, we are speaking about the realm of spiritual idealism. in that place, where we talk about the after life and eternal justice/salvation as if we are absolutely certain that they exist, then we no longer view "death" as a bad thing. we no longer view the evils and oppression committed by sinners as something to fight against with violence. we now view death as the entrance into gods kingdom and thus welcome it with open arms. we now view the behavior of sinners as sorrowful and taking into account god's own handling of the situation (obviously laizzes faire) we should imitate gods actions and let them sin and kill and oppress as they wish. and show them love as they do it
when we start to speak about the physical world, we now enter the realm of pragmatism and self preservation and viewing death as the end of life. in this real, we now see self defense and utilitarianism as righteous and necessary.
do not mix up these two ideaologies.
