Do a little research on ancient religions before you open your mouth about who is having a faith crisis and wondering about their education
doing research on ancient religions, RIGHT NOW, and have been off and on for decades, "sir." (which you would know
actually paid attention to what frequenters of this forum post
, rather than your own warped version!)
On my shelf sit encyclopedias of Gods, or World Mythology, of Greek and Roman pantheons, of studies of ancient religions like Celtic Shamanism,
Tibetan Buddhism, Native American shamanism, the Abrahamic religions, the Gnostic texts, Egyptian stories, and books from every class of
mythology/worship that we know of. At the moment, I am about 1.5 chapters into reading a fun tome called The Evolution of God
which starts in
the earliest prehistoric times. Author is Robert Wright.
Did you know who the Chuckchee were? And how they dealt with unruly winds? No?
You have been corrected numerous times by Catholics on what Catholics think and do, and you still persist in your misleading assertions.
It was I who started the hated Christmas HOAX thread, remember that one?! That's why I suspect your faith isn't on straight. You condemn some
sects of your own general faith (Christianity) by pointing out their pagan-linked traditions, yet you also don't listen to what they themselves are
telling you. And you are bashing people who are very much aware of many ancient styles of worship and in the process of learning more
them, saying that they shouldn't "open their mouths."
Do you know who the Essenes were, dude
? I don't have a strong enough faith for it to be in crisis. I am a learner, an inquisitive student, and
I don't just "take anyone's word for" what I can find out for myself. And if I can't
find out for myself, (not being fluent in hieroglyphics,
Aramaic, Hebrew, or Assyrian), I will seek information from those who do
have the ability to "translate" with some credibility.
I'll open my mouth whenever I like, thanks. Pushy much?
What is it you come here for, lonewolf? To proselytize? To convert? To condemn? To rant? To convince yourself?
No need to answer, that's none of my business, but you might think about how you'd answer if God
Your avatar alone gives some indication of your inner strife.

Oh, and EDIT TO ADD: I am a baptized and confirmed member of the original Church of England (protestant), but no longer practicing. So I was brought
up with it....some call it "Catholic lite".
They also worship the "Trinity", and while the trinity itself as a sort of polytheism is certainly
a carry-over from the ancient religions (I
never disputed that!), it does not
include "Mary" as part of that Trinity. So there.
