If we considered the hypothesis that as human beings we are all innocent, we would be more inclined to prove our innocence, rather than our guilt.
The problem is that this hypothesis is not practicable because almost all existing beliefs and religions are based on our guilt.
Since the assumption is that a god, a group of gods or other alleged creators of the world, are good and perfect, if something does not work, well the fault must inevitably be given to human beings, or to something they have done and continue to do.
For this reason we have continued to fight, abuse, offend and blame each other for ages.
We continue to do so because our guilt, as human beings, is essential to guarantee the innocence of the creators of this world.
As long as we worship God, the gods and other creators of this world, we will continue to be guilty.
If we started from the hypothesis that as human beings we are all innocent, we would be more inclined to prove our innocence, rather than our guilt.
Try using this hypothesis, just as an experiment.
What happens to you when you consider your basic innocence and that of every human being?
