All over the world, observations I made about culture after culture shows the same thing. Sometime from ~1975 humanity gradually became more and more religious. Fundamentalist religion became prevalent. I do not know what has caused it. But this is a pattern for sure. And patterns mean things.
Another remarkable feature is the similarities I see between the 2 big religions: Christianity & Islam. Interesting parallels seem to emerge. Wahabbism goes with Protestantism. Shia & Sufi goes with the Catholics & the Orthodox faiths.
What governs all of this? (Im)Possibilities:
- It is cylical. A complicated memetic mechanics makes this happen over and over again.
- It is intelligent. Some kind of higher intelligence is in control. It has an agenda.
- It is caused. World War II/Baby Boomers/Sex Revolution/Excessive Liberalism/Political Istability/ led to excessive religiosity.
