    This topic is on religion and on my own personal beliefs.  For all the atheists or radical people who don’t believe out there.  For whatever reason you don’t believe, may it be that your life has many problems, your family forced you into a religion, or that certain belief that you didn’t connect with.  There are plenty of religions and many more forming right this second.  You can hypothetically believe in a carrot in this crazy world.  Some people need to have some sort of proof with science.  Some people show rebellion against the system, taking control of their life, or deep down might be so confused and they need a label.  Now religion likes to force a name on everything.  As I researched many things at one time or another, you cannot focus on the word “Religion” itself.  We as humans like to complicate every little thing.  It is in a humans DNA to worship something or other at one point in their life and this has been stated through science.  You simply cannot focus on the word “religion” itself, and more on your own private belief.  You are allowed to simply read the Bible, and call your belief whatever you want.  There is a good and bad force, and if you alone claim to believe in a being you will not be tempted or be taken over by bad forces of any kind.  Believing is your private relationship with a higher being.  You can worship through meditation, sitting quietly, or telling that certain being inside your problems.  If you do not reflect on yourself and have admiration for a certain being it is shown that you will always have problems, and also attract them to you.  Now if you must name it something, there is not one major thing to call it.  People who strive to worship, they look to nature, the body as a temple, or simply something that makes you feel whole.  You can even worship yourself not in a prideful way but as a vessel of giving love back to the world.  Most of all we connect better with a being similar to ourselves.  Some people look at the Divine as a woman because she is a non- judgmental being.  A woman is a sign of peace, nurture, and communication.  So yes, it is liberating to say you don’t believe in anything and people need to respect those who do.  Down the line, there is always an underlying need and yearning to worship someone or something as a human being.  People who don’t might always question every single thing on this planet and get nowhere.  Lastly, in my opinion, I do believe in a divine being.  I am also spiritual, and read the Bible but I do not classify myself in any ONE religion.  It is not that complicated, and much simpler than you think.  Now you can research the Dali Lama, Eckhart Tolle, James Redfield, or even the universe they all say similar things; you must worship and then you will receive good things in your life and true happiness within.  Many people in their own private way practice different things to find peace.  Who or what helps you rise to a better place within yourself?  big_smile

    I don't think I have an underlying need or yearning to worship anything. What makes you think it is in our DNA to want to?

    I've heard this before. "You have to believe", "bad things will happen if you don't believe"

    The truth I don't have to believe, perhaps you do, but I don't. Bad stuff happens to good people as well.
