    Variety Of Beliefs

    When people hear that I have "my own ideas" about religion/spirituality/etc., the response is generally negative, even in just a subtle way, such as body language or a change of atmosphere. As I live in Tennessee, this response mostly comes from my Christian friends or...

    The Rose Religion...

    Is it possible to believe in God but not believe in Heaven and Hell? I believe in some of the stuff the bible says but a lot of it just sounds like bull crap to me. I believe Jesus was a real man and I believe he did die on the cross for our sins, but I do not believe that...

    Unique In Similarity

    I tend to agree that there are limitations to the current christian experience which derive from the church - the political institution which has defined a perception of what Jesus taught and thrown out other interpretations and perceptions.  While I take the bible as a...

    Although I am not a fan of religion,

    I do have faith. A much broader faith than most others have. The Imagination is where everything originates, so it only seems fitting that it would be the first. But I don't pray, or put my life and its troubles in its hands. What would I be, sending someone else to solve my...

    I don't believe in God

    for so many reasons and they aren't all personal reasons. I believe in many other things, such as devils, angels, demons, heaven and hell, but I can't bring myself to believe in "an almighty being". I'm sure if he were there he would have answered my prayers. I'm sure he would...

    The Singularity Cometh

    In a nutshell, I believe that the coming "Singularity" (google it) will amply satisfy all the various prophecies of the Return of the Christ, the Mahdi, Maitreya, Quetzalcoatl, et al, and will bring personal immortality to those who wish it via "virtual bodies...

    An Introduction To My Personal Journey

    Although it is a much more boring writing convention than in medias res, starting from the beginning for this is probably the best. I'll divide it into five parts. Part one: Foundations. I started out being raised in a basically Christian family in the south. Yes, -basically...

    Although, I hesitate to call it a religion.

    Its more like my beliefs born of personal experience. They aren't ideas I read in a book or taught to me by other people. So what do I believe? Everything is imbued with spirit- rocks, dirt, you, me, lightning- everything. There is no god that is separate from us. So its absurd...

    I Believe…

    That we are all our own "god" and we all have our own perspective of reality. We form opinions from our own experiences, in which everyone has their own points of view. Only YOU are responsible for your own beliefs, no one else can tell you otherwise. You can learn from mistakes...

    Does God Have A Say In This?

      It really amazes me that Humans feel they can ‘Make up” their worship to the creator…as if he will just accept any form we come up with. Don’t we have a way we want our children to act? Do we not have rules to go by? Here is a basic fact IF... we profess to be...

    My Lifes Journey Thus Far

    I would've called this my religious journey but I prefer to call my religious beliefs my morals simply because a lot of people use  a fear of god as a reason not to do something.  I don't do what I see is wrong not because I'm afraid God will smite me or I'll go to hell...
