The Conclusion of "The Beliefs of Nations"



Welcome to "The Conclusion of The Beliefs of Nations." As you've read (at least in the introduction, and hopefully throughout the "Nations" articles) this group of articles is trying to draw a conclusion as to what belief system throughout history is the most logical to put our confidence in and why. First, as we pointed out in the introduction we need some sort of absolute rule that will allow us to see a clear and logical choice when forced to choose one belief system or the other.  When our rule is applied a decision must be made based solely on logic. In other words, when a person applies this rule he or she is force by logic to understand one belief systems breaks down in the face of logic while the other continues on as the one that you can put your confidence in. As we mentioned in the introduction this is done by applying a simple comparison between the religions.

The Atheist Vs. The Hindu Comparison.
Which is More Logical?
For instance, Let's say we were to compare two religions to find the most logical conclusion as to what to believe. Once we make our comparison we evaluate the results and pick the most logical of the two.

As we look at the belief systems listed below in
CHART A. Among these listed belief systems we see a number of atheistic belief systems. They are namely the ancient Mesopotamian gods, the ancient Egyptian gods (Hey! Wait a minute! I know what you're thinking! These first two belief systems have a whole bunch of gods, they're not atheistic. You are right! But, while they have gods, they provide no after life for the believers except, as in Egypt, a pharaoh, or as in Mesopotamia, a king. Otherwise there is no after life.)  Jainism, , Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Science all provide the same outcome as an atheistic belief system. Because the outcome of these belief systems are identical we can bundle them into one category. The category is an atheistic belief system (there is no god or gods or the gods don't allow afterlife). This belief system allows only one possible outcome. If they are correct, there is no God, they die and there is no life after death, there is no eternal death, there is no re-incarnation, there are no penalties to pay. They just die and there is nothing.

Chart A

Now that we have defined the atheistic beliefs lets compare them to the Hindu beliefs. Keep in mind we are discussing the ancient Hinduism based on its origins and not anything more modernized.

The Hindu's believe in the
re-incarnation of life. If the Hindu lives a life of good works and pleases the gods of their beliefs they move up in caste (caste means the believer will be reincarnated and in their next life they will have a better life within their society.) If the Hindu lives poorly before their gods and their works are poor then they go down in caste.

Now, consider the following comparison. If the atheist is
correct, the atheist performs their works for themselves while the Hindu performs work toward their gods. Eventually the atheist and the Hindu both die and there is nothing after death. However, if the Hindu is correct then there are the consequences of the gods to deal with. If there are gods there is intellect. The gods of Hindu will be pleased with the Hindu. So, when the believer dies the believer  goes up in caste. On the other hand the atheist displeased the god's of Hindu for: doing works for themselves and living solely for the day without any consideration of others or the gods. Nor has the atheist  performed any works of the gods of  Hindu. 

The logical conclusion is (given the choice between the two) the Hindu belief systems is a more logical choice. Why? Because the Hindu belief provides the security of knowing if you do your duty to the gods of Hinduism you would go up in caste when you are reincarnated.

The atheist on the other hand is an illogical choice! Why? Because the atheist is relying on luck to determine their outcome. Furthermore, the atheist believer has left themselves open to an insecure and potentially dangerous  outcome for themselves to go down in caste, and that too, is illogical.

All Belief Systems Fall In Line With This Formula
All belief systems fall in line with this formula, By evaluating all belief systems in this manner we can truly determine the most logical outcome concerning what religion you should put your confidence in. We now see that the beliefs of the ancient Mesopotamians, Egyptians, and the three teachings can be disqualified from the race of logic because as you will see later when we evaluate them against the greater more logical beliefs of the Hebrews and Christianity; Taoism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and  Jainism are all illogical choices. Not to mention the beliefs of the Sciences. As sophisticated as science has become we still know very little even though in our outward appearance we seem very intelligent. While science seems to provide great logic in the "here and now" it doesn't consider the "here and after." Also consider, the sciences are making discoveries at a rapid pace. So rapid in fact that we couldn't employ enough people to keep up if we wanted to follow every thread of thought. Nor would there be enough money to perform such a great task. That is truly the greatest proof of just how little we know about ourselves, our world, our universe and the knowledge yet to come.

The Hindu Vs. Judaic Christianity Comparison.
Which is More Logical?

Let's look again at the chart and see the logic as it breaks out when we compare these two belief systems. As we discussed earlier the Hindu belief system does allow for a form of after life the world knows as reincarnation. The Judaic Christian belief as a very different form of after life known as the "Eternal" after life.

The eternal life scenario brings a different logic with it. That belief system states that there is an eternal Life and an eternal death based upon the acceptance of the Savior The Lord Jesus Christ. In other words our life on earth is a one time process. And how we live in the "here and now" (whether godly or ungodly) is judged by an everlasting God. Therefore, we can say that the Judaic Christian belief claims this life to be filtering process that separates the godly from the ungodly. 

As in our last equation of the practicing Atheist and the practicing Hindu; the Hindu is the more logical choice, because, by following it, the believer goes up in social standing when reincarnated and the Atheist goes down in social standing or worse ends up as a lower life form such as an animal etc. What proves to be interesting with the Atheist, when put against the Hindu is: the Atheist is spared life regardless of what he believes. Even though the Atheist goes down in cast this believer is still going to be reincarnated. In other word even though this believer doesn't believe in an after life he gets one anyway.  That is truly an interesting twist. There is always an escape hatch to get a second chance or with Hinduism an endless number of chances.

Let's see how our Atheist and Hindu believers fair against the Judaic Christian belief system. Let's say the
Hindu is correct. The Hindu and the Judaic Christian believer will both come to the end of their life and pass on. The Hindu goes up in class because he believed in the faith and pleased the gods of Hindu. What about our Judaic Christian believer what happens to him. Well as we said earlier if there are gods there is intellect. Clearly, we cannot be sure if the Judaic Christian believer will go up in social class, that's true. However his chances are much better than the Atheist because the Judaic Christian believer is trying to do what is right and is not living for himself or the day, but rather to live for a God. In fact, clearly much of his beliefs center around much of the same works as our Hindu friend. Therefore, there is some possibility that our Judaic Christian believer will go up in class. Moreover, the Judaic Christian believer in his worst case scenario goes down in class but still gets spared to some degree because he is still going to get reincarnated and gets the chance to believe another day in reincarnation.

Here is where it gets interesting. Let's reverse the tables. Let's say the
Judaic Christian believer is correct and the Hindu believer is wrong what then? Well, the Judaic Christian believer accepted the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ and lived according to his rules. Therefore,  the Judaic Christian believer will live in eternity with his God. However, our Hindu friend is not so fortunate. Because he did not fulfill the simple requirement of accepting the Lord Jesus Christ and living according to his rules our Hindu friend will perish in Hell where there is the burning and the gnashing of teeth forever. In other words he can be spared and given any second chances. This same logic can be asserted to the Atheist as well. Therefore, we have established through the use of our logic and our intellect that the Judaic Christian belief system truly is the most logical of all choices.

Are There Any Belief Systems That Can Endure This Logic.
This eternal after life belief systems truly brings with it not only a complete logic with it, but it also reduces all other belief systems to nothing. Even the Muslim belief system falters in the face of this logic has no determinable plan.
