“Why has to left?”


vanishing belief system

Over the recent years, religion has seen sharp drops in the United States of America. And the reason being brings up all sorts of topics. Some people have said that there is too much violence and control. While others have looked to situations like the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. But whatever the case may be, people are drastically leaving across the board. Now, the word Atheist is something that creeps people out. So a lot of people have taken on the term nonbeliever. Yet they both mean the same thing, just the pressure of the word is softened. Is there more that meets the eye to why religion is dying? Does it have anything to do with the above statement I made early on in this passage?

sci-ence

The more we evolve the smarter we become the lest convinced we become of religion. Because the idea that a man is ascending from the sky to save our species is becoming more and more preposterous as time progress. The more people listen, the more we think to ourselves about living in a modern civilization how we still see this as just. And yes, we have become quit advanced since the times of the original Christians. We know more about our bodies and the world around us. So much so that man has even extended our life span to 78 years of age when it was only half that during biblical days. But besides the science, it is harder to get the attention of a younger demographic to be into religion.

distractions that bound us and bind us

A child growing up in Jerusalem a thousand years ago had no clue a child was playing in the Sahara of Africa. A child growing up in Moscow a thousand years ago knew nothing of a child’s life in present day America. Now we are so connected into the world that it is virtually impossible to not know what is going on worldwide. And with so much information, how do you focus on something so ancient and archaic as religion. Religion is unchanging and life is constantly evolving. And with that, getting the attention of the young to be interested is difficult. Now in less developed countries where child have less, the job is easier. Less finances, less opportunity, less distractions, more time for belief systems. And the more advanced we become, the less the need for the belief system.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
