Right. But see, I disagree with even the basic Christians. Their beliefs dictate that all power comes from without, from an external source, and all
true power actually comes from WITHIN. Every single Christian practice is actually a form of witchcraft, pagan worship. They're just ignorant of the
fact, and they refuse to believe it because the Bible tells them otherwise.
My spirituality dictates that there is no god. There's a divine principle, a design that has invented itself and continues to reinvent itself in such
a way that everything is automated with a perfection that man would be dumbfounded to recognize. It is so subtle that our clumsy methods of scientific
study trip over it and fail to recognize the significance. The stigma of religion has created an idealization of it that cloaks the true nature in
whimsical fancy. And yet both are right in some ways - they are simply too brash to grasp the bubble without crushing it. The bubble, the design, is
perfection incarnate. It is the joy of creation, the thrill of immortality through eternal reimagining and continual experience. Math has shown me
this, geometry has shown me this, the dance of music and vibrations and physics and the planets and colors and weather has shown me this. Judging by
how easily stuff breaks in the world of today, how easily entropy has its way and breaks civilizations into memories and cities into rubble, people
into casualties and philosophies into mere curiosities of mind long dead, it can't be coincidence that everything we in the universe today happened
despite the destructive properties of time as we have come to know it. If chaos is truly so random, we should have started from square one a dozen
times over by now, and yet we continue to grow in spite of the devastation that we believe created this universe. Math itself the most pure and
impartial language we know, tells us that this world, as we see it today, is nothing short of a miracle.
Christians call it by a different name, and regard it differently than I do, and this makes all the difference. I'm not saying my view is superior, by
any means...however, it does tend to lend a more realistic understanding of the universe, a more healthy perspective of how our existence relates to
the divinity of this plane we have found ourselves in.
All in all, my disappointment stems from the realization that the basic belief system of Christianity prevents us from seizing our full potential and
saving this species from the death spiral that could potentially destroy everything we have worked so hard to make for ourselves. Should we master
compassion and empathy, we are capable of utilizing the divinity within us to make a future far brighter than has ever been imagined - but at this
point in time, we are too afraid for that which is palpable and personal to see anything beyond that which concerns our immediate scope of reality. I
hope that makes sense.
