the last 2 millenia have been the hell we were sentenced to?
Considering the fundemental basis in organized religion,the acceptance in to the US group, and not left out with the 'Them" groups. Only by
following the Holy Hierarchy will you find salvation.
mankind lost it's way as soon as we decided to agree and set standards for beliefs in regards to the most personal of expereinces. the words
"Through me" is the phrase that tips their hands.
If He made you He can certainly interact with you when ever and where ever He chooses. "Gods'' don't need secretaries.
The ambitions of Men have lead the spiritual astray, through cold calculations down the line.
The only phrase that rings true to me is
'God is everything and everything is God'- even an atheist like me can rationalize what that means. WE are the only species on this Earth that can

every day in the craziest ways. We are in Eden, we just are too busy gambling on the Lottery to noticed riches we've been handed. And in return I
try to share a little heaven with the rest of the inhabitants I encounter, everyday.
If you ever get a chance to ask Atheists about their philosophy I think you'll find they are as diverse and intricate as any religions. It just gets

address the problems we are currently facing without such distraction,
bias and futility.
