Has Nietsche, Plato, Heraclitus, Parmenides, Marx, Hegal, Jefferson, Marcuse, Sartre, Kickenguard(sorry too lazy to look up the correct spelling), Derrida, Rand, Jung or made you look at things different?

I hate repeating this - - - but like I've said previously - - - I've had "experiences" since birth - - used to astral travel when I was about 5 or 6.

In one experience - - a very tall man in a long white robe appeared. He told me it was confusing me living in 2 worlds - - the spirit world - - and the physical earth world.

He grounded me - - told me not to "fly" anymore - - that I needed to stay in the Earth world until my cycle was done.

So obviously I am affected in my belief by that encounter.

Coming from a typical white Christian middle class area - - - I made the rounds of different Christian churches - - - but always felt like they weren't getting the whole picture. Even as young as 5 - I kept thinking how much they were missing.

My grandma - - - a firecracker 5' Irish Catholic - - drug me to church with her and did her best to make me Catholic. At 5 years old - - I remember cringing at all the ornateness and pomp and circumstance. I kept thinking - - - "what does this have to do with God?" The people were very uptight and rude to little kids - - - I kept thinking "this is not what God is all about".

BUT - - growing up - like any other kid - I tried to fit in (never did). I tried to be Christian and go to local churches etc etc etc. I tried to be like everyone else - - I wasn't.

It was like - "there is more to this story" - "you just aren't getting it"

So today - - - I only refer to myself as "child of the Creator" - - - - and believe what I feel.

I believe that the universe is a product of intellegent design, I feel that living beings are souls and possess some esence of the creator , I do not however believe that said creator wears the mask of any of the organized religions. They seem to me to be an attemp to scale the infinite down to some managable size and shape so as to seem more understandable. People who live close to the land and who have a deep understanding of how the cycles and patterns of the living world play out, are the perhaps the ones who come closest to knowing GOD.

Circledancer, you said it much better than I ever could!
Given the size of the Universe and all we've come to know in the last few hundred years, it seems so limited to visualize the Divine as just like us only with superpowers.

We are all one consciousness with different points of view. God? Define your terms. Then question them.

I think we've done far more to recreate God in our own image than God ever did to create man in His image.

There is no proof of a god.

Sure there is - He is on the money, but since he doesn't have a picture on the money, he's probably a lesser god to Lincoln, Jefferson, Hamilton, Benjamin and those other guys.

I believe a bit in all religions. I like to call myself a Buddhist or sometimes a Christobuddhist. I think Jesus was much closer to a Buddhist than the sort of Christianity that the fundies run around preaching. In reality, I don't practice any sort of religion and consider all organized religions to be attempts to control individuals and the masses.

A few thousand years ago, we would be gods.

Until the batteries powering all our "magical" devices went dead. Then the peasants would be after us with torches and pitchforks. :shock:
