What many religious followers don't want to accept is that there are many religions, each claiming to be the only one and the only path to an afterlife of bliss for eternity.
So which is the right one?
Just because one subscribes to a particular religion (usually because of one's geographical placement), It doesn't make it the correct religion, Does it?
Well, May we all barrack for our national football team, but, surely religion is something different and the choice of a religion based solely on one's location or culture is fraught with danger.
Shouldn't we look at the first religion as being the one and only authentic religion and subsequent copies as fake?
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia, Christianity, For example, Comes well down the timeline of when religions started.
Preceding all these religions, and, by a considerable margin of time is the Australian Aboriginal "Dreamtime".
We are looking at 40,000 years BCE and the religion is still followed by Aboriginals today.
So, Shouldn't we give these people the benefit of the doubt that what they say about their spiritual attachment to the land through Dreamtime is the one true and only valid religion?
In which case, Abrahamic religious followers should take note that their afterlife may not be one of their spirit returning to the Dreamtime but, because of their errant choice, will more likely end up existing in an eternal nightmare in the middle of the Simpson desert with not a drop of water to touch their tongues, enduring constant searing heat and constantly fending off satanic, deadly taipans.
Perhaps it may be time to throw those Bibles, Qurans, And Torahs in the fire, get out the souvenir boomerang and start a corroboree.
