    Why do we select warrior gods who can only grow their religions by violence, --- inst

    Why do we select warrior gods who can only grow their religions by violence, --- instead of persuasion to a better way of life?

    Is our love of God and War connected due to being the epitomes of our love of drama?

    People tend to do what is rewarding to them. We are a pleasure seeking species. War, as the epitome of drama, is a condition that humankind is forced to suffer because our instincts force us to seek the fittest. To us, that is either a god or a king; or whatever word or name you give to your epitome of whatever type.

    Men controlled, by their two main passions, love and war and love of God as an ideal, have used war to seek a male God from the moment men set matriarchy aside 5,000 year ago.

    We naturally seek the fittest and to us, that means we are driven to war.

    We men are responsible for 5,000 years of advancing God with war.

    Granted, we have used war with some skill and advanced society and its wealth, but we have yet to reach the ideals that matriarchy and Goddess rule reached. Not by a long shot. Wealth, when produced by war, is basically gained forcing the citizens to suffer. We lose both income and positive lifestyle, as well as; the more important, human lives.

    Men get a fail mark in finding God and cannot do better from what women did before them. I think all real men of honor and duty would confess this reality.

    A Gnostic Christian first recognized and coined the saying,” that for men to continue to do the same thing, while expecting a different result, is a sign of insanity”.

    Matriarchy? Probably why men decided to go to war.

    True. That time was when women lost their equality and became our chattel and slaves.

    It was also the time when men forgot and lost their duty to wife and child and the honor of doing that duty.

    Trying to re-find their lost honor with Gods of war is the root of the anger that gifted us with 5,000 years of war.

    True. But this O.P. is about what motivates the phenomenon of what makes men --- "makes and grows "religion" and "god"

    You laughed, which indicates you did not know what the O.P. was about.
