just thought i'd ask if there are any religious folk out there? Am a christian myself and wondered if there were any others about on the forum?
deep stuffi just have been in places where it all seemed right. but most of the time it all seems wrong. i see how mental health issues and crime and stuff are so prevelent...i just think we as a species, aren't taking care of oursevles. all the war and poverty... i mean real poverty...famine...it all could go away if we took half as much care of ourselves as we do our animals. but there are times when it all seems right. that's a big reason i like to share some of my experiences here. backpacking, camping....seeing nature is good for the soul. all this stuff we nowadays think is important, suddenlt isn't out there in the boonies...you may go in depressed, but you never stay that way. you start just thinking about the here and now...
erm...jerusalem has been a jewish place of worship since 9 or 10 bce if i rememeber correctly.definately anti religion. I can't accept that all this is based on a book as there is no physical evidence of anything to back it up. The idea that Christianity came from a Jewish bloke living in what we'd presume to be a Muslim area just doesn't add up.
Also when you look at other religions and their teachings it seems all too possible that they're based on the same book which has resulted in different meanings during translation.
As for The Bible, Darwins theory seems far more plausable with logical evidence that can back it up.
At the end of the day, the only faith i need is faith in myself. If i need to base my faith on a book and it's teachings then i've failed myself.
maybe you should read more abuot YOUR religion...it was a test as you said you were a true catholic or something silly.ok, i dont know what your talking about
hence 'presume' with it being in the Middle East. No facts stated in that bit that it was a Muslim area. Although it is the third holiest city in Islam but seeing as none of us were there at the time it's anybody's guess what the main religion was back then.erm...jerusalem has been a jewish place of worship since 9 or 10 bce if i rememeber correctly.
i am an agnostic myself but it would be nice to get the facts straight,mate
i dont really consider it a muslim area personally...at least when i think about it. i guess its the remnants of being a former catholic lolhence 'presume' with it being in the Middle East.
