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.

June does this ever so often.....think she has some supporting information, but in fact, it is really just a ruse to make herself look good.
I still can't understand how it took her so many decades to speak out against something she states as: "I never believed".
Remember - she's only been a "non-Christian" for only about 4 years, and IMO - appears to be limited in her "Agnostic" view, except for a couple fo books that contain quotes from others.
I was alive when many of these religions were created. From Wicca and (American) Druidism to "Reborn" and the latest incarnation of "fundamentalism and Literalism" Christian cults.

As long as you tell people what they want to hear, you can invent a religion. Been that way for thousands of years.

No difference at all.
To most Christians, the word Christ and the word Jesus are interchangeable.
Note how this author uses the word "Christ" as meaning Jesus.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>
The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.
All History ignores Him.
The fact that Christ finds no place in the history of the era in which he lived,—that not one event of his life is recorded by anybody but his own interested and prejudiced biographers,—settles the conclusion, beyond cavil or criticism, that the godlike achievements ascribed to him are naught but fable or fiction.
Of course so-called "Christians" think this, erroneously of course. I can see and understand why you would play this card.

"Jesus" - a man who lived and taught a form of philosophy
"Christ" - a divine entity that people applied to Jesus the man, who they FEEL or HAV FAITH that he rose in bodily form from the dead.

Distinct differences.

Then maybe you shouldn't be like other people, and verify their veracity before presenting them as support.

DOH!!

According to their magic book, you are correct:

"You will die like all mortal creatures." The Hebrew word for animal and soul is nephesh. A "soul" is simply a living creature. Not special to humans.

The Old Testament never prophesied that a Jew would come to earth to love only a group of people who took the title of Christian. I suggest that the Jewish theologians "made double-sure" that that didn't occur.

Of course it depends on which meanings people take to and from the words.

Many in religion don't like to believe that non-human animals HAVE souls that attach to their god or gods, as they desire to believe their worth is far above the worth of other animals and, as we know ... even above other "human" animals.

Christians at one time were so arrogant as to believe that those of the black race and the Native Indians didn't HAVE souls, as the Christians compared them to other animals that they also believed didn't have or deserve to have souls.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda argued that, during the Valladolid controversy in the middle of the 16th century, the Native Americans were natural slaves because they had no souls.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism

The idea of slavery as an "equal-opportunity employer" was denounced with the introduction of Christian theory in the West. Maintaining that Africans were "subhuman" was the only loophole in the then accepted law that "men are created equal" that would allow for the sustenance of the Triangular Trade.

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.

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.
