I'm not going to lie - that kind of went over my head.
All I am saying is that one religion says every other one is wrong. I can't stand that thinking. That's all.
If it's wrong FOR ME to think that, then I don't want to be right!

It wouldn't be a proper way of thinking to have a strict set of principles and yet say, "But we are probably wrong." Sure, we will find out we are
wrong if we ARE wrong, but why operate on the premise that we are wrong? We should operate on the premise that we are RIGHT until we are proven
wrong. In this way will we learn more easily what is right and what is wrong.
I was not making a point to say that the Vatican is right about anything. I am making the point that if you can't cope with the idea of someone
believing they are right, then how do you even make an argument? How can you even say that religion is wrong? How can you say that religion is wrong
about believing they are right and everything else is wrong? Don't you think you could be wrong about that?
I'm not sure how to put it into simpler terms. My apologies.
How is it hard to understand this : You should always operate honestly based on your conscience. You should always operate to the best of your
ability as if you are right. You should not operate dishonestly. You should not operate against what you know to be right. It makes no sense.
Is it possible to think that you are right by operating against what you think is right? Yes. But that is because your conscience has bested your
logic and realized that -something- is not right. If you ever run into this situation, it is because SOMEONE is trying to tell you something...
I can't make it any simpler or more complex, I don't think.
Besides... what is the big deal what the Vatican thinks? Don't we know that the Vatican is a culmination of evil spirits doing good deeds in order
to keep order? Don't we know that the purpose of the Vatican is to suck in the good people by means of good works and good words and also to condemn
those bad people by means of bad works and bad words in an attempt to retain their own evil sovereignty?
Don't we know that the entire world that worships the Vatican and its Seat is a world that does the exact opposite of what the Vatican finds to be
good AT THE MERCY OF THE VATICAN ITSELF?
The purpose of the Vatican is to create laws in order to create sin. The more "sin" of which we become aware, the more we condemn ourselves and
thus we are judged. It is not necessarily that playing rock music with a little distortion is a sin (depending on your intent and reason) so much as
that anyone who stumbles upon that little rule finds within themselves sin and believes it and YET continues their course! In this way they have
judged themselves and will be condemned accord to their own beliefs.
The purpose of the Vatican is to Lead People Away From The Lord. The Lord has NO EQUAL and NO REPRESENTATION on this planet in the form of rule!
JESUS DENIED THIS RULE DURING HIS TIME IN THE WILDERNESS AGAINST SATAN!
However, let it be known... that when the Vatican or its representatives speak truth of a certain subject, it is wholly to lead people away from the
truth. People do not trust the vatican and therefore LEAD THEMSELVES AWAY FROM WHAT THE VATICAN SAYS. It is a trick.
It is true -- the movie Avatar is designed to generate the responses and mentalities that are following. People are intelligent enough to realize the
effects of this movie. Anyone who denies it is a hypocrite by means of our own secular science of psychology. People know and yet people deny their
own knowledge. It's pathetic at best.
It is true -- the movie Avatar is not that great. The entire populace must not have much interaction with many RPGs and the sort. R.A. Salvatore
certainly has done a much better job in presenting more interesting fantastical worlds. Square Enix (formerly Squaresoft), as well, has created much
more enticing worlds.
But it has James Cameron's name on it. Now the world has been exposed to something that a lot of us former-geeks already knew about.
I'm thinking much drama is part of the plan for this movie. So, this ends my ever referring to it significantly again.
God's fantastical reality is much more intriguing anyhow.
