Is it something that can only emerge from the primordial ooze of ignorant ego? Or do some people (not me) skip that phase entirely? Is it an evolution on a timeline, or a static state?

Religion: Is Humanity Ready For Its Next Evolution?

Perhaps we need to ditch the religious crutch we’ve been clinging to for so long and just accept our next evolution.
