Religion in the year 2200
If a freedom based society prevails, much of the religious dogma will be downsized and much of the individualist based spirituality that the early churches feared should prevail. A sense of gnosis will be appreciated and many of the Eastern practices thereof will become more common, with a sense of some Western values instilled throughout this growing trend of spirituality.
The first scenerio would need meditation, but it wouldn't be encouraged. The second scenerio would thrive with meditation.
I believe all religions are based upon the Kundalini experience. What has come with this experience, is a baffling array of misinterpretations and messiahs.
I don’t believe I’m capable of jumping nearly 200 years in my imagination ( if I could I would not be here) Therefore, I believe that the next religion to be born from the human mind will be completely Kundalini based. Whether it is born from a book or technology depends on the persuasiveness of the creator, and the willingness of others to abandon their reality in favour of his/hers.
My Kundalini experiences have been profound. Have taken years to understandish and, can easily be misinterpreted. If I were part of any religion I could easily interpret the experience to fit that religion. If I was a post humanist, it could easily be described as a super fast download. Honestly I’m not joking here, it (kundalini) can adapt to any new theory and is adapted by many humans too create new truths. Solely based on the reality crashing/unreality experience it delivers. Once Kundalini has been experienced whatever delivery system you used, will be considered truth.
So, I believe whoever brings along the fastest route to that part of the mind will be followed and give birth to a newer religion.
1-No organized religion.
2-A spiritual global population practicing in privacy.
3-Without no.1 & with no.2 I could see people more interested in all life & the planet.
I know, dream on, dreamer.
The World society are promoting equal opportunities in terms of gender. Equal gender opportunites can advance our economics, technologies, as woman can play a very important roles in science, engineering, technologies, finance and economics, and promote humanity. Higher status for woman can also protect their rights, and respect them.
However, equal gender opportunites discourage birth rate. Because woman can get jobs and no times to look after their babies.
In Muslim, however, the mainstream ideas is male for work and woman for home. Muslims have significant high birth rate. As long for many generations, muslims will share higher percentage, even higher than 50%.
So in the future, is Muslims.
In year 2200, muslims may surpassed christianity and become world largest religion.
For atheism and agnosticism, because most people are fear for death. So unless the life extension technologies has significant growth that human being can enjoy >200 years old on average, or we have time-machine to travel back to disprove religion, it is not easy for atheism have sustainable high growth rate.
