People say scriptures cannot be changed. Okay, but then why do you need to follow them?
Scriptures were written by men, in a male-dominated society, when war, killing and fighting was a daily occurrence, when people were tortured, women were beaten and slaves were being held. You cannot call that holy.
In both, Hinduism and Islam, one can find proof that men are allowed and even advised to beat their wives – if they don’t obey or if they don’t want to have sex.
Religions explain that women should be obedient, submissive and not displaying or enhancing their beauty, that people of another belief are to be killed, how non-believers would be tortured and how they would suffer before their death and in the afterlife or next life.
If you follow outdated scriptures, you would have to kill a ridiculous amount of people in our daily lives, most of the population would have a ‘painful doom’ and women would behave and be treated very wrong. It just does not fit anymore.
