It is the "sense of belonging" that drives all animals toward survival. Natural crossbreeding and diversity in all animals is controlled by this emotion. Religion isolates and polarizes the animal psyche against acceptance of conflicting social constructs irregardless of any superior natural benefits. Religion is a Man-made mental illness that needs to be irradicated from the mind to allow the psyche to evolve in concert with the evolution of the species. Humanity needs to evolve in order to survive and the sooner mythology runs its mindless course the better it will be for humanity. Stand fast in your sense of belonging to nature and survival of the species. It is the only immortality afforded to humanity.
