The following is an Opinion Article Written by Cade Resnick

The world that exists today, in 2012 is filled with a lot of fear, terror and negative trepidation. Although this seems to be the rhetoric from the people I spend time with, I personally disagree with them.

In the field of psychology, research continues to understand how the power of forgiveness can be utilized to alter previous generation’s negative viewpoints.

In the field of studying conflict, and human culture he meaning of educated extends to the ability to question and research all systemic possibilities.  The most important aspect of being educated in the field of culture is to begin your research trying to remove all aspects of your bias. It is after all, bias that is the downfall of the validity within research.

Salespeople are considered to be the snakes of our society. Many people who are sales people share in them tenacity and inner strength for rejection, seclusion and from time to time, reward. The importance of thinking about salespeople as I begin this analysis is that religion is one of the biggest sales gimmicks society has. If I were to walk up to a person and offer to them a promise that if they follow all the rules I am about to set out for them, and that they are to pay me a percentage of their earned money, then upon their death, they will receive a kind hand in heaven.  Most people would laugh at me, and say, not a chance. Religion has learned to be a powerful sales person. This paper will explain the ritualistic notions of religion, and how the more ritualistic and exact (fundamental) a religion is, the better chance it has to succeed.
