To me it's all the same

    Different words, same meaning. You call your religion whatever you want and it'll always be just another aspect of one's own personal idea. Some of us see groups of people and we say "now those are the right people". The individual self does not like this way of thinking. They say "Look at those people over there, with their silly beliefs". But when they make themselve's public, they both sound like fools, arguing about why salt is better than pepper and so on. The arguments we have over such ideas are no different from the arguments 2 and 3,000 years ago. The secularists say bad things about individual thinkers and likewise, the individuals say bad things about them.

       We all want to be cool with the next person, we just haven't figured out how to talk to everybody. The truth is, we  as a species love to hear our mouths because it's hard to hear our brains. We are animals of speech and as animals, we tend to get a little loud. If we were not animals, what would we be then? Anyway, we are evolving, we are getting better at this spoken and written language thing. The more we evolve into it, the more information we are able share with one another. I think it's good to be an individual, but one should hang out with everyone. Hang ot with a gang member or a priest. Hang out with football player or a violinist. The point is, we should find something of ourselve's in everyone else. This how we should communicate with others, no matter how different they are.

       I like to speak to others, because it makes me feel good. This is much the same for everyone. Something we do makes us feel good. This is yet another way to communicate. Talk about whatever and because it is all the same, enjoy the conversation. It is easier to be negative about other people, especially when we don't know them. This is how one should approach another, just remember that we are all the same in some aspect or another and talk about it. People go nuts if they are in their own minds and we certainly don't like being trapped in a body either. It is because misery loves company, that we treat eachother in such a way. Happiness is hard to hold onto, but we can all be comfortable with eachother, in the same respect.

       Am I alone in this way of thinking? I'm sure other people somewhere agree?

      We take ourselve's way too seriously and we should see that the beliefs we have are similar to that of others, they may be exactly the same, but to take an idea or a personal philosophy to levels of violence, is absurd and a waist of time. And for anyone joining a religion, pay attention to how the person talking sounds. You may just be joining a cult. And for the already religious, pay attention to the nonreligious, they know stuff too.

      Can you explain to me where cult stops and accepted religion begins?  They look exactly the same to me.

      But yes, violence for ANY reason should be the absolute last choice and it unfortunately seldom is.

        All religions are cults PC. (if we use the dictionary to define the word cult). Some are just more obvious in their practice of "religious" brainwashing than others. smile

          A little brainwashing goes a long way. Just as long as one is able to see it before they are totally emerged in the practice. As I always say "It is better to move on than to remain the same forever".
