In reading the previous posts is seems that everyone has latched onto the roles of Religion and Morality in the text. I completely agree that this can be read almost as a religious guide on how to live one’s life. Crusoe is continually announcing his many faults and claiming God as the only one who can truly save him. However, I see his transformation into dependence on religion as a last resort as it is really the only hope he has. In truly dire circumstances humans turn to the one thing they believe can save them (something all powerful with the ability to change any situation with the snap of a finger). He clung to this hope or savior simply because there was nothing else to cling to. Does anyone thing Crusoe would have gone through this transformation if he had not disobeyed his father and landed himself in this predicament. His religious consciousness is a false one (as personally I believe most are). He likens himself to Adam and Even as well as Job because it gives him a false comfort in a time when his reality is to harsh to bare. He starts to waiver from reality and believe that it is not the island he needs to be rescued from, but it is his own wrongdoings that have landed him there. This idea is probably represented best on page 83, “Now I began to construe the Words mentioned above, Call on me, and I will deliver you, in a different Sense from what I had ever done before; for then I had no Notion of any thing being call’d Deliverance, but my being deliver’d from the Captivity I was in; for tho’ I was indeed at large in the Place, yet the Island was certainly a Prison to me, and that in the worst Sense in the World; but now I learn’d to take it in another Sense: Now I look’d back upon my past Life with such Horrour, and my Sins appear’d so dreadful, that my Soul sought nothing of God, but Deliverance from he Load of Guilt that bore down all my Comfort: As for my solitary Life it was nothing; I did not so much as pray to be deliver’d from it, or think of it; It was all of no Consideration in Comparison to this: And I add this Part here, to hint to whoever shall read it, that whenever they come to a true Sense of things, they will find Deliverance from Sin a much greater Blessing, than Deliverance from Affliction.” Crusoe was driven to this believe through his circumstances and it is understandable that he came to this religious conclusion as it helped him make it through his time as a castaway, however, that does not make it real. But even if it is a false consciousness found in religion does Crusoe become a better person as a result of it? I am not a religious person whatsoever and I find Crusoe conversion to be a result of his circumstances, but I can’t decide if it is still false or wrong if it makes Crusoe a more deliberate person in the second half of the book which I kind of think it does.
