Since They Wanna Know...

My post about death has resulted in queries about my views on heaven and hell. I'll go ahead and write this post, publish it and then hope for the best. Please remember that these are my views. I am not trying to "convert" you and I really don't want you to try and "set me straight." If this post offends you, surf away.

I believe that human beings create their own experiences through their beliefs. What happens after death works the same way. If you expect a heaven, you get it. I do believe in God. I do believe that Jesus was the son of God, but I also believe that every person on this earth is a son or daughter of God. I believe that modern Christian biblical texts have been edited at length, leaving the masses disempowered on some level. I believe that every faith is "right," because those who believe make it so.

My beliefs are such as a result of extensive study, both spiritual and scientific. My beliefs give me hope and comfort. I believe that's what beliefs should do.

Excellent. Really. I couldn't have said that in such a compact, not offensive way if I tried.

I love your beliefs. Best reason I've heard so far to believe in SOMETHING.
