Therefore, in conjunction with your very own line of reasoning, the question is, do you not see an even greater need for cooperation in today’s world? And if so, why wouldn’t the same process of mystical revelations be as possible today as they were in the past?
I think it's accurate when I claim that the mystical branches of all religions are open, progressive, and free of political control. To be more precise mystics are open and progressive because
by nature of mystical experience mystics are free of political control.
Other people's mystical experiences and any wisdom they get from those experiences should not be the only foundation for faith in goodness. Faith in goodness , truth, and justice should also be founded upon reason as reason is available to all and requires no special talent. Mysticism and reason are not mutually exclusive.
Mysticism is potentially troublesome when charlatans claim to be true mystics and seduce people into following them. Reason guards people against charlatanism.
I gather that you, Seeds, are a Biblical literalist. Biblical literalism e.g. accepting the story of the Sacrifice of Isaac as told and without applying knowledge of the socio -history behind the story including those ideas that are peculiar to the time and the place.
in order to create a “rallying point” (a new religion) wherein cooperation can then be achieved.
If true, then that would be a mystical and supernatural feature of the universe in and of itself, wouldn’t you agree?
I don't agree that a supernatural being who knew what he was doing and fully intended to do it exists.You are arguing from a position which is yet to be substantiated. It is probable that God did not intervene to provide any focus for any religion to develop. The universe is not mystical; mystical experiences can be viewed as physical events of physical brains; the universe has no nervous system to have mystical experiences with. You have a category error there!
