why not indeed?

 

I mean if it's such a gamble... what's there to loose?

I've slowly making my way though the Quar'an and

just like all the other 'holy books', there's some good

lessons on How to Live. It was the practice of Islam that

kept that part of the world from descending into the dark

ages while Christiandom did. They set down rules about

what was safe to eat (to prevent disease) how often and

how you should wash (to prevent disease) and even how

to deal with the dead (also to keep your ass healthy).

The whole time the 'West' was inflicted wit hthe plague and

all types of hideous 'punishments', the Arab world was self

sustaining and looking out for the people.

 

Even if this practice of 'religion' is nothing more than a way

to set out some simple guidelines for living you life, well it's

accomplished a lot. Keep in mind that I'm not a church goer

or in defence of the things that happen in 'God's Name',

but there are good things being done.

 

would charity exist without religion?

I think not.

au contraire mon frere,

My job is increbile. I love this job.

Sometimes I have to pull marathons but it sure

beats working in retail or some factory. I mean really,

this is the kind of job some people spend years in school

to get but they still end up being clerks at blockbuster.

And the pay is pretty good too!

well without sounding all smug,

I really think that it's possible to find a new relationship

with a higher power that isn't follwing the traditional BS

that the Roman Catholic church wants you to deal with.

It really becomes a personal thing you have to discover.

 

I think that every needs to find their own faith.

Doing exactly what the church or your parents suggest

wont actually make you a believer. I think going out into

the forrest and standing next to a giant redwood while holding

a seed in your hand is proof enough that there's so much more

than our 'puny little minds' will ever really be able to understand.

Damn you for having a job you can actually like.

But alas you're Canadian so I get the last laugh.

Haha cheers mate.

unless the job is something you like,

marathon shifts will kill you. Personally I think the only

good marathons are the ones in bed.

 

and glik0... when you dodge the next draft, I'll buy you a moosehead*

This is my view i believe in god and jesus i do believe that jesus has come to earth to fix it up when it got hektic and jesus will return soon to fix it up again because you have to agree it is getting worse,

 

anyways god has set these rules to go by to keep humanity in check so we have a conciense whenever we commit sins, but as you all know humans are fuck ups we can be good and we can also be evil its human nature (when we ate the apple it gave us knowledge of good and bad so giving us bad thoughts). (later on in the bible it says that god was upset for what we were thinking but then realised that it is what we chose and got over it).

 

we are curious like when god said dont eat that apple we had to go and eat it. It's just plain curiosity we like to learn about things (science)

 

we are still shit breeds when we get to evolve use a bit more brain capacity i think we will evolve into a god-like creature (god made us in his reflection/form/of himself whatever) meaning he made us exactly like him

 

 

probalby no where near as powerful but pretty close when we can control ourselves

 

religion can be hard to understand because you havent seen it for yourself but trust me its there true

 

ever tried praying and when your finished you are swept with calmness or when you enter church you feel at peace?

 

anyways thats it for now.

the idea of being alone. and alone is a perpetual fear for the majority of people so they seek some sort of refuge and God just happens to be the best choice..

 

when i think of religion i think of people who devour themselves in dependence on something that is so erroneous its unheard of.. its all social pressures, the same fucking process..kids are raised by christian parents and forced into a world of christianity..they are raised as a christian and as they get older it becomes so permanent to them that they know nothing else or will accept anything else...when i was in 6th grade i felt my self saying "i need to be a christian because everybody else is".. christianity is a social pressure

 

what is good? what is bad? why cant you form your own principles? why must you follow a pre set life of pre planned standards? of course that can be seen in modern day society with.. eat.work.sleep. birth.school.college.family.death.

 

its more like this whole fuckin society has turned into robots who somehow obtained an emotional chip.

 

nobody questions anymore..

 

i can get more into this but later

Enjoy reading the Bible

 

It is an amazing book. One of my favorite passages, which is often quoted by ultra-fundamentalists, is Mark 16:15. It's what Jesus said to the eleven faithful disciples when he rose again from the dead--he was rebuking them for their lack of faith:

 

 

 

"Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whosoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. AND THESE SIGNS WILL ACCOMPANY THOSE WHO BELIEVE: In my name, they will drive out demons, they will speak in new tongues, they will PICK UP SNAKES WITH THEIR HANDS, and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all, they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well."

 

 

 

 

Well, this makes for some VERY interesting church services, let me tell you! Ain't nothing like a box of rattlesnakes and a quart jar of strychnine to spice up your typical Methodist 11:00 Sunday service, by golly. You go up there to the mountains of North Carolina, and buddy, they take their faith SERIOUSLY, LOL. Speaking in tongues, snake handling, drinking diluted strychnine, faith healing by the laying on of hands and pleadin' the Blood. Hell, yeah. And first-class fiddle and banjo music accompanying the hymns, too.

 

And in addition to that (as if that wasn't enough) I have some acquaintences who are polygamists, as well. One guy and his wives lives right here in Houston.
