Why do we believe?

We believe because we are scared.

We are scared because we fear the end of life.

We fear this because we are taught to fear hell.

Hell is a insignificant few lines in our favorite book, the bible.

Those who would be leaders have always known that fear is the ultimate motivator.

Instead, they are like magicians who get us to look at the wrong hand, the empty one.

But in truth they are both empty,  but We put faith and hope is in the disclosed hand.

When we open our eyes, and therefore the closed hand of ignorance,

we will see that it is the hand of man that we must take faith in, believe in.
