The Religious Pyramid

Introducing the hierarchy of religious beliefs, as basically defined by Crispian Jago. It’s fairly easy to read, with the most harmless at the bottom and the most harmful at the top. The hierarchy argues that an individual or institution cannot make their way up the pyramid without hitting all the levels below. It can be described, simply, as a ladder. Everyone, as individuals, or every collection of institutions, as a society, starts at the very bottom and will accordingly adjust towards the environment surrounding them and the emotions within them.

How Has History Treated Insanity?

Insanity is a spectrum of behaviors, characterized by abnormal mental states or behavioral patterns. Insanity manifests itself in that of the loners, those who violate the average person’s viewpoints in society. Insanity is dangerous, leading people to become dangers to themselves or to others. But, not all acts are considered insanity, just like all acts showing indifference or disagreement towards societal concepts are not considered insanity.

Religion’s God Complex

A person with the undiagnosable disorder of god complex refuses to admit the possibility of any error or failure, even in the face of irrefutable evidence. Highly dogmatic in their views, the one suffering with god complex will speak of their personal opinions, regardless of proof or foundation, as if they were universal law. In short, the person could never possibly be wrong in their own eyes. They show no regard for the basic demands of society in any way, requesting special consideration and considering themselves a part of some illegitimate privilege. They, in some way, believe that they are, in short, divine in their intellectual standpoints.
