jamm3r's survey asking this question. Only he and I have filled it out, though! So why not get on over there and register your opinion?I like |
You were my inspiration for the survey after the whole Buddhist / vegetarian thing! :-D
You know, I had an inclination years ago to study religion, but it wore off or something. I respect anyone who dedicates any part of their lives to learning about religious history and understanding -- it's a slippery discipline well worth studying.
I still hold the belief that we are all One. Like it or not, it's so blindingly obvious to me.

Why do people with my birthday have so much in common?
Incidentally, counting you, I've got four good friends born on April 15th. (Jeff, Clay, and Brett: Yes, you are the other ones. Hi!!) And of the five of us, three have dedicated significant time to studying world religions. (Brett, in fact, studied Buddhism here in Japan, and has just been awarded a gov't grant to continue doing so in April. Go Brett!!) So yeah, I can't say I don't believe in astrology. ;-)
I like your belief about "we are all one." I do certainly agree with it. You might want to check out the Universal Oneness United website at www.uou.to. Their motto is, "Love Is All There Is & We Are All ONE!" In the past I've thought about enrolling in their interfaith seminary program, and I think I still might some day. There are very few interfaith seminary programs in the US, and they have a big plus in that they offer their program totally through online / distance learning! I've always wanted to help people out on a spiritual level, but since I'm not exactly Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, etc. etc. etc. an interfaith program is probably the only route I can imagine myself taking. Right now I'm actually enrolled in an online Wiccan clergy program and it's very interesting, but alas I am not exactly Wiccan either. It's nice to have such a syncretic belief system! :-D
i prefer my meat hats to be well done.
There did seem to be a 'raw' theme to that whole thing....
