I'm not going to argue point for point with some you. Skyfloating I'm glad you were able to travel and speak with the "other side". However I
don't believe that you have given them a fair chance and I don't think you were ever opened to do so in the first place. If we're not willing to
see the other view or if it goes against our own personal or religious beliefs, no matter how it shown it to us, we will simply choose to not accept
it and continue on with blinders on.
I have wondered why clerics on both side of the fanatic aisle fight so desperately in these current times to sway opinions and I believe that I have
found the answer...
If these religious clerics again on both sides or all sides I should say didn't fight to cling on to these old archaic beliefs, we might actually see
peace among humanity. Muslims, Jews, Hindus especially those who live in the western world have managed to find a balance between their culture and
religion and the modern benefits of life. This is the fear of those in control, people actually getting along and leaving behind the worthless parts
of their religion. This new generation if allowed to exist prevents those who want to self fulfill a variety of prophecies from instigating the fear
and war mongering needed to keep us "under control". Fulfilling the End of Times prophecy, the giant family feud that has being going on for
centuries (yes you're all descendants from the same guy and worship the same god, you're just blind to the fact) is the method used to keep those in
power in power and by willingly choosing sides you are condemning not only yourself but your brothers and sisters to the misery that real teachings
from the One God tells us to avoid.
You may all continue to paint your pictures with your singular brush, but remember everything is going to come out only in shades of gray... unclear,
depressing, and miserable. While some of you prefer this style of broad painting of others, I'll keep trying to wash my brush and hope that real
colors that we eventually see isn't just shades of red which will be the blood shed by all, if we don't stop labeling, generalizing and killing each
other over things like borders, religion and race.
