Zizek is one of the foremost philosophers in the world today. If this is hard to comprehend due to his accent, or his philosophical language, Zizek claims that as TV shows created the audible laughter to create an environment to laugh, or to have the TV laugh for us, so Religion does the same. He seems to be claiming that we don’t believe in God, we believe in religion. And, we believe in religion, because religion believes in God for us. People who are religious don’t believe in God, they believe in the belief of God.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
