GrisGris

GrisGris objects can have a healing or a repellent effect. People believe in these powerful objects. They believe so strongly that it works. What is this belief?

Can we do this too? Believe in something through which we become calm? And do we need it? In what should we believe in? Believe in some specific vegetable that will bring us health? Or that the chair, belonged to an old man, will bring us nostalgia and cosiness? Why do we believe in these things? For comfort, desire or explanation? Why don’t we believe in GrisGris?

Can we learn from believing in GrisGris and search for a new religion? A religion created by humans for humans. Creating a new religion from existing religions. Can we create a new God? And do we need it?

What is religion?
Do we need religion?
Can we, humans, create a religion?
