I have been a "Lurker" for about a year. I would like to thank all members for the insight you have given me. whether I agree or disagree I have
learned so much. This is a wonderful place and has opened my eyes and mind to things I have known, felt i have known and things I never knew. This
past year of reading ATS threads I have grown knowledge of what is and isn't. The only place I can get accurate news and also a little daily
amusement. So much intelligence in one place, I only wish everyone can than just "nut jobs" hehe! Open up their minds and see that conspiracy
theorists are more open minded and more intelligent than what has been perceived by the general public. You guys Rock! I am not stubborn. I like my
mind to be challenged. I am able to change it whenever I see fit. I look at everything through new eyes and make my judgments after careful
consideration of my own self....so please Keep it up. Keep me learning. My interest are "everything that interests me". I am very open minded I can
be stubborn but not unchangeable. Spelling, well if you know how to read my misspellings do not matter(but i used spell check on this.. hehe). I am
very honest and straight forward...sometime people do not agree but then again those are the same ones that insist on honesty. I do not pacify unless
my Motherly instincts tell me to.
This is me......just one of my beliefs. I am not an atheist nor am I agnostic. But I understand. I am of my own with the help of the Buddhist
teachings. I am far from Buddhism but feel enlightened by the teachings and incorporate much of it into my own personal life. I am not Christian
Jewish Muslim but I incorporate all of the goodness in each into my life. So this is my view on the religion matter.....
"Religion is a lie". And so many people have fallen into this trap. If you are Christian...lets say you where born Jewish instead or Muslim....your
family your friends your country your up bringing...uh oh now....so does that mean religion and the way of God is taught. Tiss Tiss so many lost
souls. To use "your" God as a crutch and a tool to hate others. Don't you know he made us perfect...all the tools imaginable to live a prosperous
and happy meaningful life. Tools to learn tools to love tools to know and understand that life is...just is. Just live. He does not care how many
bible verses you know by heart. Or this place you go to every Sunday wasting your time and his gifts to tell him he is this hateful awful egotistical
god that gave you rules and will be damned if you misbehave.... but he Loves you.. That is not him and it breaks his heart and hopes that all hate
will end and all will see the true light. Just live and enjoy this gift. Prayers are silly..your god is mean if you pray for a dying child and that
child dies but your neighbor prays for a way to get her car fixed and wallah vrooom vrooom. My God just sits and waits and believes in me and has
faith as I believe in him. Smiling at me because I use his gifts and leave faith unto myself. I am my crutch and I do pray but not for anything in the
physical realm. I pray to me to you to us because we are God ( pray to, not for). We are God we are Buddha we are Allah we are all one in the same and
we where all separated because of mere words differences in books written by man...not god...MAN! Evil hateful Men...why, to control for power that is
not rightfully theirs. But we call it politics now lol!. And that is their choice to be..what is your choice! This world is our home. We are all
family. Do not let this separation continue. Faith is you and as soon as you stop using God and religion to make yourself strong then and only then
can we be with God. No one is below or above anything....we just think that way. I know how hard it is to only find faith in oneself...alot harder
than looking for it somewhere else but you must. If you don't then it is false hope. But you are still with god because that last breath you take in
this life...you will know. And god will smile upon you. Time has no meaning only what you find in that time if only for one second is all that is
needed. But dont take my word for it....you haveto find it on your own and in your own time. I have faith in you and in myself...in us! And Ahhh the
wonders of the Universe..we are not alone! We maybe the only humans but we are not at the top of the list as ultimate beings.
Thank you for reading my rambling. Peace be with us all!
