39 24 Michael Perry and the religious cosmology And this, of course, is just the beginning. In a little more than a thousand years – from Constantine’s conversion to the outbreak of full-scale religious warfare between Catholics and Protestants in Europe – pious Christians would burn, drown, and torture hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of people with beliefs that differed from their own. 40 And this, of course, leaves out the centuries of destruction visited upon native populations around the world in the name of Christianity, as well as the violence meted out in full measure to the Muslims and Jews during the Crusades.

Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps Michael Perry and the religious cosmology 25 to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses, but will receive praise and honors. 42 The trouble, Solzhenitsyn argues, is not necessarily with seeking to justify our actions; instead, it lies in doing so with ideological reasons.

One might wonder, for example, whether Buddhism, a prominent world religion practiced by more than 350 million people, qualifies under Perry’s definition of a religious worldview. 57 Although Buddhism, then, is quite different from the Christian vision of the universe that Perry sketches, the central teaching “that enlightenment was humanity’s proper destiny”58 clearly points to the idea of an ultimately meaningful universe and our place in it. As Armstrong argues: Just as enlightenment and Buddhahood did not involve invasion by a supernatural reality but were an enhancement of powers that were natural to humanity, so too the deified Christ showed us the state that we could acquire by means of God’s grace.
