The scriptures explain the importance of karma. In ancient time if you did not perform your karma, you would go straight to hell. Nowadays if you don't perform your karma, you will need premium membership of naukri.com.
The scriptures talk about the creation the universe. They say that the universe was created due to some underlying principle. After watching countless mythological serials, I am sure this is not true. All mythological serials say that the universe was created because God decided to do so. No explanation is ever offered why He decided to create a universe not a video game.
It is not that I am questioning the wisdom of the Creator. I believe God is a great artist. He created the beautiful scenery, the animals, the birds, the reptiles and humans. It's just that when I look around myself, I feel that God is an underachiever. Anyways, there is no point in discussing about the creation of the universe because it is too late to do anything about it.
Along with scriptures I try to follow the instruction provided by those who claim to have read the scriptures. At first glance they seem to be individuals who got in touch with the Supreme Being because they were unable to find a decent job. These enlighten men tell preach me that the underlying principle of all religions is the same.
The principle asks me to establish the supremacy of my religion by destroying all other religions. Though I have a different opinion but still this principle is aptly able explain the reason behind the Christians launching holy war against the Muslims, the Muslims committing jehad against the Hindus and the Hindus burning the churches. Though I don't have courage to follow their teachings, I have noticed something important. The easiest way to get rich is to start your own religion.
To sum up
My religion teaches me that
Kill one person and you are a murderer;
Kill thousands of people and you are a paragon;
Kill everyone and you are God.
