And I suggest that from all I have studied, all myths were written by theologians ... and that the Jesus-myth is simply a re-run of other almost identical myths taught in other religions by previous theologians.
Of course. They all have roots that run deep.

I believe that to this day ... the words "soul" and "spirit" are thought of as channeling a Creator ... period ... and that it applies only to those humans in their own religious group.

For instance ... Christians don't believe that their link to the "god" is allowed for Muslims ... and vice versa.

The term is "channeling."

"'I' have a channel to the high realm of eternal bliss ... and because you are putrid and dumb ... YOU DON'T!!!"

That's religion in a nutshell.

That has nothing whatsoever to do with supposed "spirituality." It is simply common sense that if I treat others in a kind way, they will remember that kindness and in some other way when they hear of my suffering will think back to when I helped them and want to in turn help me.
And it works the other way. When people crap on others, such as Fred Phelps with his mocking dead soldiers as god-offenders ... how many family members of dead soldiers do you think would want to help Fred Phelps if he was in NEED??? I suggest that ifFred was crying in pain ... most of those family members would walk on by without so much as a nod.
That was the point sis. You simply express it differently.

“Meher Baba” means “Compassionate Father.” It is the name given to their spiritual Master by a group of disciples in the early 1920s when signs of his spiritual status first became apparent. Today, many thousands of people from every religious tradition regard Meher Baba as the one long-awaited — the Prophet, the Buddha, the Christ, the Messiah of this age.

Especially when I wish for peace for "everyone" if in turn there just should happen to be an afterlife.
It takes away that "SPECIAL" self-centered dogma from religion. And without people believing that the gods find them irresistible and perceive others as putrid ... what profit is their in staying IN such a group-setting of religion?
No emotional profit whatsoever.
Christians wish for peace on Earth and goodwill toward men, too.

And Islam is a religion of peace -- maybe that's why Iran is pursuing its nuclear programs solely for "peaceful purposes".

I take your claims just as seriously.

Maybe so ... but you believe that Jesus was a promoter of Gnostic beliefs and I believe the myths were all fairy tales created by personalized theologians that were masters at using words for their own agendas.

Jesus just happens to be the latest mental creation of a supposed savior ... but that doesn't make the myth any more or less special ... except to those who trust that the myth is actual truth RATHER than myth.

If I wasn't "hurt" by "something that happened" I would be wise enough to believe in YOUR religion ... RIGHT???

Silly people!

When you become a Muslim, then I will know you haven't been "hurt" by something.

That's the preaching ... but the behavior is at odds with the preaching.

Your missionaries are in Muslim countries ... breaking up families by stealing their Muslim members in conversion to your own Christian cults.

The pope kissed the Qur'an in a show of respect to Muslims, while at the same time he had his missionaries teaching the Muslims that unless they became Catholic they would end up in hell.

Religion AIMS to create trouble ... period!

Religion always was a war of who had the most military power.
I suggest you keep in mind that in Constantine's era twenty emperors were assassinated in one century.
That is WHY he gave control to the Catholics in the hopes of religion becoming ONE system of belief.
As you can see ... his plan didn't work. The crazies are still at it today ... fighting over who the gods love and who the gods will reject.
That is because the edifice(s),that being the the political monarchy and church structure were themselves corrupt.

Only when that is realized and admitted, can any steps be taken to rectify the iniquities, and any "healing" begin to effect. It is not impossible...it is improbable, as those who hold the abominable power will not relinquish unless forced to do so. That was surely recognized by a simple man on Patmos.

The dalai lama supported India's aim to arm by nuclear power.

The United States is armed by nuclear power.

Why do you believe that Muslims should NOT have the same rights???

The Muslims must feel comparable to "sitting ducks" in the midst of men with shot-guns.

I think it's only fair that they also have nuclear power in their countries.

Let the bombs fly in all directions, and that is fair and just treatment for ALL ... not just SOME.

"I believe that WE should have guns, but the native indians that have no souls, should only fight with bows and arrows, and THAT is fair."

Humans are the most aggressive and insane of all animals.

"Hundreds of atheists and atheist-curious packed into a Hollywood auditorium for a boisterous service filled with live music, moments of reflection, an "inspirational talk" about forgotten — but important — some stand-up comedy.

During the service, attendees stomped their feet, clapped their hands and cheered as Jones and Evans led the group through rousing renditions of "Lean on Me," ''Here Comes the Sun" and other hits that took the place of gospel songs. Congregants dissolved into laughter at a get-to-know-you game that involved clapping and slapping the hands of the person next to them and applauded as members of the audience spoke about community service projects they had started in LA.

At the end, volunteers passed cardboard boxes for donations as attendees mingled over coffee and pastries and children played on the floor."

A revival ? Send in your donation June. lol stomped their feet, clapped their Hands and sang. Sounds like the Pentecostals to me. A new church, 42k plus 1.

All religion is corrupted by stating that it is not myth, but rather based on truth.

And it goes downhill from there.

I believe it IS impossible to expect humans that are innately selfish to be anything BUT selfish.

And until we recognize our own selfishness, we will keep hoping that others will be peaceful towards us.

What a joke.

As an example ... for Christians to refer to their selves as peaceful and to Muslims as terrorists is why there will be no peace on earth unless humans become extinct.

Well then may I suggest that if you believe it is possible ... you try to impress upon the religious factions that they must create peace rather than war.

Guns and bombs are exploding as you speak, so good luck with your efforts.

The Canadian forces liked to believe they were peace-makers in battles started by others. They ended up either having to kill, or be killed.

Let's be real for a change. Humans are simply NOT nice.
