Just My Thoughts

Just as a warning to whomever comes across this, I am going to talk about religion. No.2 on social debate topics, after football and before politics.
Just saying, turn back if you want. You've got the chance now.
That's what warnings are for.

Now onward to the topic at hand. Religion. I don't particularly believe in it. I am not saying that I am an atheist, because I do believe that there is a higher power guiding me on the path of life. I just feel that there is no one superior way to worship. It shouldn't matter if you call that higher power God, Yahweh, Allah, Zeus, Jupiter, Ogun, or Odin or what you do whether it be going to church on Sundays, praying toward Mecca five times a day, or simply singing and dancing. In the end...


We all believe in an almighty entity that controls the world around us and wants the best for us and yet though we all want the same thing, we still manage to tear ourselves apart. Religions worldwide are not completely separate. They are woven together by people and their different ideas winding together to form beautiful patterns and cultures. However, while this is happening, there are also people fighting and pulling away from each other, distorting and destroying something beautiful, if not perfect.

Individualism is what built humanity up and what might ultimately destroy it.

For those who took the time to read my ramblings, thank you. I apologize for any offence I may have created, but I don't really like to constrict myself to fit into other peoples' criteria.
