This I Believe: I continue to make adjustments and revisions as I view the world from new perspectives. More is learned from mistakes than correct responses when determining an unknown. The rational arguments against religion provide the grounds for my Agnostic attitude; however, the farther I stray from the established faiths, the more my own belief comes into focus. I strongly agree that "WE ARE ONE", and I actively seek an understanding of that truth in it's entirety. Ordainment through the ULC was a symbolic declaration. I have long felt that my inability to "find religion" was a deficit in my life. Yet my doubt of God's existence makes God a reality. Now my search is my religion.
Favorite Quote: "It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!" ~Friedrich Nietzsche "Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d'honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion. Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo. Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain and pluck the living flower. The criticism of religion disillusions man, so that he will think, act, and fashion his reality like a man who has discarded his illusions and regained his senses, so that he will move around himself as his own true Sun. . ." ~Karl Marx
