I am not much of a "religious" type person in the sense that most people mean. I mean, I dont' belong to any organized religion, nor do I oppose
But, I dont' think that "truth" lies soley in religion. Truth is more of a concept. And that concept can be one thing to one person, and a
totally different thing to another.
Take the Bible for instance. (Not such a good example, since I am not very familiar with it), but I think that basically it is full of different
'stories', for lack of a different word. I believe from listening to many others, that each one of those stories can be, and is interpreted
differently be different people. Better yet, take the Constitution for example. (I have read a bit more of it). I personally take it at face value
when I read that, "All persons have the inherent right to life, liberty, the persuit of happiness, and the enjoyment of the gains of their own
Well, having repeated an exerpt of it, I'm personally appalled at the number of people being arrested every day. This alone takes away their right
to life (sometimes), libertey (absolutely), the persuit of happiness (I would think so in most cases), and in some cases, it can also take away 'the
enjoyment of the gains of their own industry'. But then, they go throwing in all these other clauses such as "due process", and others, even when
the arrested individual has harmed no one - in the cases in which I'm referring to, at least.
So, there is no real truth in that either, unless you can make some truth that you can be comfortable with for your own self, and be content with
that. I think that basically, with anything in which we try to find truth, we are going to find discrepancies. So, perhaps in the end, the real,
true truth lies only within our own selves, and our perception of it.
