    Well I happen to think that to be successful in life you must either (or do both)
    1) procreate (sp?)
    2) Do something great with your life. The definition of great is of course up to your interpretation)
    Of course I am biased by saying the "god" must be female (making it a goddess) because of the simple reason that most religions seem to make man superior to woman which in our modern socety know that is not true. So the fact that the godess is a woman would lead to the fact that most "bad people" (murders, abusers, etc) are male and therefore their souls are destroyed and "new" ones come about.
    I have to agree with rubra in you must know why you beleve what you do and feel the need to add that it should not be what your parents believed because they believed it. Go out experience hte world make choices about it on your own. What you beleve is not really that important because in the end we could all be wrong. What ever happens after death happens we living creatures can only make guesses at what we may not even be able to comprehend. Whether I am right or wrong does not concern me since the world will continue after I am dead just as it did before I was born. As long as I accomplish one of the two goals I am happy. Of course the journey toward the goals is really the happy part. Just live happily as you are don't worry about being happy-er

    yay! Rubra knows what i'm talking about!

    i read all about it in Astral Dynamics by Robert Bruce
    it's not a cultish thing, it really applies to everyone and anyone.


    if anyone is interested, theres a retreat in the mountains. no obligations, and it's free. We'll have cake and punch there. there will be a short seminar about how your not really happy and why you wake up to the sound of your own screems and cry yourself to sleep inside.

    your not really happy.

    your not REALLY happy.

    are you really HAPPY?

    I am happy as I may ever be. So I don't worry about it. I never cry myself to sleep nor do I wake up to my screams. Since in my dreams I may already be dead whats the point of screaming. Oh yeah if I am about to die and I wake up well there was no point to screaming since that will not help. I try to keep things rational

    like we said in the evo. thread, just because you evolved doesn't mean you can't have a religion or that "god" somehow made you evolve.

    it is NOT random. there are natural laws which things follow, and natural SELECTION. (since you obviously have evolution in mind). the word itself says it is not random.

    there could be many reasons... we don't like the smell of ALL flowers nor the sky ALL the time. We like "nice" clear, sunny days with the blue sky because we see clearly and we associate it with being outside and having fun, etc. we like the smell of flowers because of the same reasons... hey, I don't claim to know all the answers but just because we like something doesn't mean there's a god or that the god you have chosen is right. The rich may not be happy because of many things... you can't just generalize things like that.

    I get number two but why number one? and without number two, number one is useless because unless you procreate and make something great for those kids, well... there's no point.

    PS. wait wait wait... treaqum- what's your religion?
    I'm also a big believer on knowing what and why you believe... but just because I want to know everything it doesn't mean I will believe what I WANT to believe. Religion is what you WANT to believe.
    like my signature says: I dont want to believe. I want to KNOW

    I meant to keep your genes in the gene pool (the goal of every living thing). 2) was like find a new plant, take over a country, etc. Where you are not doing anything for the kids you are doing it for your own prestige. What ever you interprete "great" to mean. To quote Pres. Clinton "It depends on your definition of that word,".

    Temple of the Vampire.
    No seriously there is no name for my "religion". like I said I was raised in an "open house" well until 5th grade. Whcih then I rebelled against b/c my grandparents were christian and they forced me to go to "church" when my mother and I went to live with them. I beleve in things I witnessed and so I "know" rather then beleve then I connect events with logical explainations. That fit. Hence the past lives. This fits events in my and other peoples lives. I haven;t quite figured out Deja vu but I beleve it may have to do with "rips in time". I could not consider my self having a religion per say b/c I belive what makes sense to me. The events in my life shaped my "religion" . But to name it I could not do. Other people probibly beleve similar things as me but who does I could not say.
