***just a little more to add.
I can no longer grasp the physical belief of religion. The idea of one being watching over all of us all the time is unbelievable. The rewards,
punishment, and stories told by such books are stories you tell to children. I can not take a full grown adult serious who is talking to a imaginary
god, a figment of folklore, books, and stories passed on.
I hate to say it but if eel like religion is a sign of weekness. Sounds bad, but I truly feel that way (personally). My real life that I
really live is really ticking away and I have real problems, now let me stop and ask for a miracle from the sky. C'mon! Bologna! One needs to look
inward, find that inner strength, that inner knowledge, and not quit or surrender EVER. The human spirit is a strong thing and if on has the will to
survive he can, in times of hardship he finds the problem, finds a solution, fixes it and carries on till the next problem.
Tis a very similar concept to old people. Ha . Wisdom comes with age, as a givin I believe I could re-word that to wisdom comes from experience,
and have the same meaning. The more problems you run into, the more opportunities that are thrust your way for self improvement. Knowledge is one of
the strongest thing in the world. I suppose it's time for a peak into why I think it's weakness. Ok. I feel like a well maintained human being,
has the muscle and ability to make what he needs. The brains to survive, adapt, and stay sane. But fear, fear makes us wonder, makes us question.
Fear makes us look to other for answers, for help. That dependence on others I see as weakness, that's just me and that's because of my own personal
history and experiences.
so don't get me wrong I know religion empoweres and in some ways strengthens its followers. That's why religion is so fascinating. Its an
amazing site when you see a real religious group working with each other and in harmony helping each other along the same path to righteousness. When
the people are genuine, the intentions are genuine, and the atmosphere is genuine, people are bound to be happy.
Humans want to feel like we are apart of something bigger. Why, because isn't everything apart of a bigger picture? Even though on many
accounts were apart of many pictures, basically walking art museums. In religious groups the people gather, sing, dance, drink?, pray, study, and
obey. Obey who? Or obey what. Obey the book. Obey what some people thousands of years ago wrote down and just said it true. In 2000 years what if some
type of future person or new species or aliens explore the planet and discover a book, let's say 'the five people you meet in heaven' and they
believe that as a historical fact. Or a situation resembling the movie "Galaxy Quest" main plot point.I merely see weakness as relying on others
for your own survival. I understand sometimes people have no choice, but those who have the ability to better themselves and blatantly remain blind.
Or perhaps they remain blind and oblivious because of the fear. Fear of the unknown. Afraid of what trouble await them in life, around the
corner, down that dark ally, or what happens once you lose everyone and everything you know, all of it taken in what is to be called your death...GOD
will not decide when you die, hopefully you will. By being safe, smart, fit, and self sufficient!
€THE BIG 1. What if the POPE doesn't believe. What if the powers that have much more power than you and I have somehow gotten proof
that he does or does not exist. What if all the higher ups know, What IF they just spread the same stuff around over and over just to keep the sheep
flocking and do what needs be done when its said to be done. By the sheperd ofcourse. And what if (literally thought this up 3 seconds ago) what if
these questions are to what the masons(some free)
hold the answer too???
Ok I know this has gone on for a long time, because from start to finish (the thread) I swear it's been like 2 hours and I just keep ranting I feel
with no end. I'm in fear.i fear the end of this post. Concluding what i am sure you wanted over 5000 word ago. I hope the warnings were sufficient.
I just don't want to have to deal with any trouble regarding warnings, banning, or just hurting your feelings (remember, really guilty). I try not
to post my stupid beliefs on to much, as haven't even visited in months
I would like a little feed back on execution of. Long ass thread, I
feel I typed a small story...
I hope you all at some point in time at least like part of the thread.
Just added the €The BIg 1, hope this thread makes you think at least a little bit
