    One day my belly was full and I wasn't being chased by a large predator and feeling relaxed for a moment I lay out on this flat outcrop of rock and began to give some thought to how I came to exist.  Nobody else had given this any thought yet, so I was ploughing some fertile ground.  I thought some great omnipotent deity must have created everything, so I called this g.o.d. for short.

      I had some extra food at that time and it would have gone off before too long so I decided to honor my g.o.d. and layed it out on my rocky outcrop, it was another layered topologicolly even rock so I called it a.l.t.e.r. for short.  I was convinced in following days, that I was able to feed myself with less effort and I put this down to offering a sacrifice to my g.o.d. on his a.l.t.e.r.

      When I told my friends and family about my success, they wanted to hear more and soon I did not have time to go out and hunt any more.  Of course they would bring me presents of food and I did not have to, so this worked out fine.  In the course of time, I wrote my story down, making it a bit more interesting as I retold it over time.

    I do not like to put God, our Almighty Creator in the catagory of Religion. Religion is a way of practice based on man's decision. Religion is also a habitual routine that people use to express their practical way of getting through life. God is a Being, and His Way is all powerful and all knowing and all being. I will always know that I choose God in my life because it is the true reason I exist, knowing that all the factors that get us here and in life itself is because He is the great I AM. As for Philosophy, to me it is the way I express how I personalize my relationship with God, my Creator, and gives reason why I live the way I do. I may not ever be perfect. I admit I make mistakes, but I stand true to my beliefs. If I have ever changed my mind it was due to maturity in knowing or maybe I was truly being distracted by my own ignorance.

    Pretty detailed. My family is highly religious yet I do not agree with some of their beliefs. But philosophy and psychology are my passions.

    My philosophy is basically: 'Onward and, maybe - hopefully - upward'. I keep going in the hope something good turns up. Sometimes I find going to bed harder than getting up, the writing just gets hold of me. Then I make a deliberate halt and play Solitaire for a little while before climbing the wooden hill to Bedfordshire. Tomorrow is another day.
    As far as religion goes, I can't say I'd let my beliefs get in the way of opportunity. Not that I'd do something stupid for gain... Or anti-social.

    In my case, very. My core spiritual practice, Zen, is wordless, but very precise. My physical practices: dance, martial arts, qi gong, and yoga are also philosophical and religious, and very precise. And, in the realm of words, I study many religions and philosophies and integrate them through the philosophical framework called General Systems Theory.

    I need to go to the beach and just swim more often!
