Why shouldn't religion be created by each of us,
for himself or herself? Instead, we are asked to
believe in this or that god, fabricated by a stranger,
for his or her own amusement and salvation,
and there is nothing of our own in it. Make your
own god, and, having done so, bring him or her
to life. Your god isn't a golden calf, but a living
part of you, he or she is a god made of your feelings,
morals, and metaphysical yearnings. Your
god has chosen you, just you and nobody else.
Any god who chooses to rule more than one man
or woman is a potential tyrant. Let your god contend
in peace with everyone else's and neither
he nor she or you will be able to oppress and be
oppressed. To create god and religion is the ultimate
freedom offered by Zeno's method.
