for some time now. Although I don't really want to give up or stop believing in my religion I have had sparks of thought about why no divine power
has stepped in to stop anything that has happened in the last 100 years. My grandfather is a monk in a Russian Orthodox Monastery, so every time i
start researching this stuff i feel like I'm kind of betraying him, but i can't help but doubt religion. Maybe our souls are just pure energy, and
when we die we will "ascend" but guess we won't really know until someone can prove it, or until we die.
We all have our own beliefs and it has had a part in who we are today. as you go through life there are situations and events that can alter those
beliefs or shatter them completely, and any sentient or compassionate being should be able to take that into account when dealing with any other
individual, its only those that are obsessed that their own beliefs are right and will not bend or appreciate we are all different will become the
things we detest are therefore hate, Its like the current world we live , media tells us that Muslims are evil and what to take over the world, ALL
muslim are not evil and the vast majority are like me , normal life loving people who want to get home at the end of the day.
But our beliefs are being challanged everyday by those that want to change us to their beliefs, my thoughts are because you think , feel , love
differently from you Grandfather doesn't make you disrespectful to him at all. The fact that you believe in 'aliens' makes you a different
intellectual individual to your Grandfather whose own life choices lead him down the path he is on. If he is a Man he will appreciate you for that and
understand you and still love you. If an alien came down to Earth and your Grandfather didn't believe in aliens it's his beliefs that are shaken to
the very core, you are at least pleasently surprised that you were right, but you should also be a Man to accept your Grandfather's disbelief and
support him thorough any transition he will have to make.
As for the aliens not interferring in our history over the last 100 years, I think they tried but the Governments and churches of all faiths were
afraid and rightly so, they are still afraid but the people are awakening to the possibility of Extraterrestrial life out there, even the Catholic
church nows says "we'd welcome Aliens". how much of a change in belief is that?
I also think that maybe the aliens should have forced a change in the dark times we had, WW1 and WW2 but it made us who we are, and we as Men have the
choice to change , and we have the right to become as spiritual as we can in this short lifetime that we are given.
I hope I haven't waffled but I'm hungry not only for Lunch but for contact with an alien visitor .
