It certainly "feels" like we are out of balance. THe Earth is being stressed as this times "Men in Charge" are taking more from the Earth than they are giving back. I read recently where the Indian Nations in the America's would take better care of the planet for instance, when the indians would harvest a root for medicinal purposes, they would only take a portion of the root so the plant would continue to grow. That concept has not been used by Modern Man and it shows. The Earth does need cleaning or a "re-set". How this happens has been prophesied by all the major religions and it's really only one's guest, but, that said, it sure does feel like we're in for some sort of big change. The evil men in charge right now will never be displaced unless the system as a whole is brought completely down and then rebuilt. Changing leadership at this point will not be enough.
I can say this. Personally, I'm not religious and do not follow any specific dogma but if I had to pick one, it would be Catholicism (without the corrupt guidance of the current Church). I do believe that the teachings of that particular religion fit's mankind make up the closest. For instance, the religion doesn't condemn individual's for not following Catholicism to the letter but finds people who "do good" and follow the God concept are doing the right thing.
For some strange reason though, I have been feeling a strong pull towards praying to the Holy Mother. I never thought this way before but these days I'm praying like everyday. God help us.

the Bible and its unfailing predictions
Please show me one (1) unfailing prediction in the bible.
Not a vague, generalized prediction, a specific unfailing prediction in the bible that has come true and you can prove.

It's been taking place since your little book of lies was written. Is it ever gonna start? Or is it allways gonna be " "It's coming"? A book of words, not very well put together, some stories of divine doings. And some folks want to live their lives by it's word? How absurd is that?
The bible whether the christian version or muslim version or what ever version you choose to read and belive reads like bad stereo instructions from china. It contradicts itself page after page, but we have preachers to interpret that for you don't you. How do you know their interpreting it correct? You don't, hence why we have so many preachers. And so many interpratations of that particular read.
I have asked every church person I have ever meet the same question. I allways said the same thing. If you can give me an answer with out suspending reality as I know it in order for me to understand the answer, I'll give you all the time in the world to convert me over.
Here's the question . Adam & Eve first man first woman, there was supposedly no other people but those two. They had two sons. Cain & Able. The bible clearly states Cain & Able "begot wives". Where pray tell did those wives come from? Was a son or two bumbing ugly with momma? Or was there other people allready there?
When something contradicts itself over & over time after time why would we take it as real? I don't. When one can answer the questions I have about how the bible contradicts itself and you have to suspend our reality to make it all work out..... I want to laugh out loud. And I do...... Any body want I'll compile you a list of contradictions within the bible and let your answers wash away my sins. Because if the bible is real, Santa's gonna bring me a new bike for christmas. Because Santa is real & I hope he brings the Easter Bunny along just for shat's & giggles.
Keep living life on a fairey tale, and you might find out the fairey tale is just a lie. Of biblical proportions. All of the above words are my own opinion. And like arseholes, we all have one. I have a question? Why so many religions but only one God? It seems to me that if it is real, one religion is the correct one and the others are just lies.edit on 10-7-2012 by openyourmind1262 because: (no reason given)

And my favourite part which i think the vast bulk of religeos people forget, they get their instruction from a man, who ''interprets'' the word of ''god'', they just make half of it up as they go along, who gives them the authority to make such statements? oh thats right, ''God'' does, dont make me laugh my sides are hurting already from watching the rediculous reality of humanity and its idiocy
