I believe the Catholic church now believes in evolution...which now makes me wonder why we even have Pope in modern times. Any theist can apply their deity to any scientific concept that doesn't outright discredit them. All you have to say you is, "God/Allah/Buddha/etc. made it happen."
Well I am feeling better than I have in a long while. I think I am getting close to finding my mojo again.
That's good. I know little about you but you seem like someone who deserves to feel good.
When I think of special, I think of everyday interactions with my daughter, my sister and my two nieces.
Well I guess that is special when it makes you so happy. They must be great people.
Besides that, I made what I think to be some pretty good progress on my Free Press Bible project
The project sounds like a nice project from what I understand. You seemed to have put a lot of work into it and it seems to have come off really nicely. How long have you been working on this project?
How have you been?
I'm curious as to why you ask, since I haven't seen you ask anyone else on this topic anything. I'm thinking it may be because I'm the only one on this topic that you don't know but I may be wrong. Well, I've been doing okay. Been having a few problems this year but I guess not every period in life can be nice. I mean, that's what makes life interesting right? The mix of the bad, good and neutral.
Do you have any dreams you are still trying to realize?
Well, I'm trying to prepare for college. I'll be trying to get a bachelor's in musical theatre or performing arts. Money is tight but I do believe I'll get in soon. A Buddhistic law is comforting me right now. Do nothing. I believe it says that anything that will happen has already happened, therefore its best not to worry about anything. If its meant to happen, it will and has. After that, just the usual get a job, get married, have children, grow old, retire. I mean, except there'll be a lot of things between them and I'm probably not going to marry until I'm in my early to mid 30's, since I want to live and learn as much as I can before I settle down.
Did you have a divorce or were you never married? What did you want to do when you were younger that you haven't accomplished? Any advice you'd like to give to me, a person much younger than yourself?
Do you think it's impossible that some Christians believe Jesus was more of less biblically misrepresented?
But then how could you think Jesus was any different from what he was in the bible if the bible is the only place his works were recorded in. I'm assuming its the only place you can find Jesus' life story. If one does think he was different, one would need some kind of other reference book to base one's theories on.
Maybe each and every persons religion is somewhat unique
You've got somewhat of a point, but for two peoples' religions to be the same there has to be some connection. That's where we get all the sects in Christianity. If it strays too much from the original idea, its a different religion. All of the sects in Christianity deem the bible to generally be true, just different interpretations.
I suppose they could be shown by example and it wouldn't require parroting verses from any bible
Shown? One would not be a part of a religion just because their role model has good values that may have came from that religion and I'm certainly sure they wouldn't join because they saw strange rituals pertaining to their role model's religion that they know nothing about, that is, unless they're truly mindless sheeple. Having good values and being a good role model has nothing to do with a religion.
