Religious Architecture

Architecture can communicate the purpose a building served, and indirectly the type of people who took shelter there.

Religious understandings and truths, meaning the buildings we construct across the edge of the map, serve many purposes; a common one being coping with suffering. This has been historically beneficial to many religions, and you can see this in the way they have been constructed. Religions, as modernly conceived, are essentially slave philosophies; they serve the needs of the oppressed and suffering everywhere.

We should study the buildings we live in and make sure they still provide the shelter we need.
