What If Tomorrow The One True Religion Was Revealed?

So tomorrow morning, everyone wakes up from their slumber. For some, it's been a rough night. Some are hung over. Some are up and ready to face the day very early. Others are up around noon. They all have one thing in common though. Just as they are waking up, they realize something. They all know what the one true religion is. Of the thousands of religions and sects of religions in the world, they suddenly know which one is correct (or maybe it's a mixture of existing beliefs, or brand new ones). They know which side of every issue the deity or dieties fall on.

1. Would people around the world get along better? Would there be less violence?

2. At the very most, only about ten percent of the world's population would have already "gotten it right" without this divine intervention. Do you think that some might be upset with their spiritual leaders for having not led them down the proper path? What would happen within cults?

3. Do you think that with a lot of these basic underlying issues "out of the way", that more human energy would be put to use in solving the more concrete problems facing us, or would we simply find something else to fight about and thus still cancel each other's efforts out?

Well, obviously since the one true religion, MUSIC, is a force that brings people together (except of course in the cases of rap, country, and opera) everyone would finally just get along, no matter what their previous affiliation. Heh.

If tomorrow morning all was obvious, I think that we would find the final connection between us all. Since we all share the same emotional make-up except for a few sociopaths, in my humble opinion there would finally be true brotherhood.

It would be weird if it was Heaven's Gate that actually got it right though.

I don't remember the applesauce. A trip back in time is in order for me.

And the trip is complete at my blog.

You are insane. The factual parts are funny though. They, they are somthing. Errr, were something. Guess they're all dead now.

I think that one of the cult members is still alive but not doing interivews. Weird folks, you Democrats. I have another Democrat post up, now.

Great, even cultists have difficulty being true to their beliefs.
