  1. Yeah ok, so I spent some time reading up on this - one extreme group blame another extreme group for something we don't know who started and a company got caught being duped over a fake tweet and nobody really knows wtf is going on but Surfshark are being blamed for being deceived I don't think its worth cancelling my subscription. Politics has got crazy with Political correctness and falling for some fake info does not make them a bad company. This is getting ridiculous.
  2. I got them too, they support Linux, multiple devices and I got a great introductory deal last year. No probs with them so far, and they seem to update their software regulary.
  3. Yes, I was wondering who his invisible friend was, unless he didn't have one. Thats a strong possibility.
  4. Just a thought about Religious Worship. When I go to church I go to acknowledge my spiritual side, to acknowledge there is a God, to show my appreciation and give thanks but not to worship. Why would a perfect being require worship? I'm a parent, I gave my children life, I provide for them and their growth. Do I as an imperfect being expect my children to worship me for my role? No, not really, I hope their grateful, I hope they enjoy the life given to them, but I do not require worship, just a thanks. And I am not a perfect, omniscient, eternal, supernatural being, why would such a being create life just so that it can be worshiped? This is illogical and not borne out by nature or the natural way of things. I was reading about Kangaroo gestation and the baby after leaving the womb as near fetus, instinctively knows to climb up the mother and into the pouch and attach itself to the milk gland. It instinctively knows! its built in to the baby's nature, if God required worship it would be built into our hearts, it would be inscribed on our hearts, we would know, but it is not. Therefore it is not required, it is your choice and you don't need a church if you choose to give thanks, pray in secret like the Bible tells us. God does not require worship.
  5. You say 'Risings' I'd say 'Emanations' (as you do) on an etheral level, but expansion or emergence can work too. I like how you describe it as 'risings' as well. It all flows from the source.
  6. Interesting, hadn't come across that before. Its very fitting, the name Jesus means 'Sun God' so if Christ also represents rising/risen its certainly fitting.
  7. Well I say similar, the universe did it itself. Call it nature if you like but the universe created life and thr universe sustains life. It my opinion the universe is alive at some level. I see the universe as having a soul and that energy is my God.
  8. I don't think the God of the OT is the true God. Again, Genesis is taken from earlier Pagan myths by the Jews while in Babylon. Taking the OT literally can lead to all sorts of errors. I don't believe in Jesus as God or the Saints either, the Roman Catholics have created many deities to pray to and worship - they are Polytheists, which of course they deny. Jesus was a powerful spiritual being who set an example for us all to copy as best we can. He is no God. When I go to church its not to 'worship' its to acknowledge and spend some time thinking or contemplating spiritual matters. I believe we have a soul, there is a God, there is a heaven and it matters how you behave down here. As for knowing God, we can't really. Occasionally we perceive it, coincidences or the appearence of the universe orchestrating events in your favour. I accept some people can feel God but apart from that God is beyond our understanding and doesn't demand worship like the Pagan OT god.
  9. I agree with you, especially about worshipping Jesus and his mother, I'm not a polytheist, there is one God. Jesus was a prophet, perhaps a highly advanced man but he was a man. But we still can't be sure what Constantine and others may have put in.
  10. Well it seems you have me confused and think I'm a Christian, I oppose most organized Christian theology - Hell, Satan, Lucifer, Original Sin are all Christian lies to me. The exclusivety of the Roman church and its derivatives to claim Jesus as their own is abhorrent to me. And the crimes committed in religions name, not just by Christian but any religion disgusts me to my core. I oppose organized religion. How you thonk I'm indoctrinated is beyond me, I note you edited your text and removed another reference suggesting I'm christian. I have been attending a Unitarian church but thats mostly out of interest and searching for spiritual direction. Regarding Jesus beating slaves, the Bible has been subjected to much alteration and editing, how do you know Jesus actually advocated that and it wasn't inserted by Constantine or the early church writers?
  11. Thats Old Testament and doesn't apply much, Jesus came and established a new Covenant and washed away the Old Testament. Also the Old Testament is based on Pagan myths and should not be taken to seriously. You are also quoting from Revelation, well there was much debate about whether to include it in the Bible and obviously eventually they did but again it is a Kabbalistic vision based on earlier Pagan myth and probably or possibly has absolutely no bearing whatsoever. The fact that we see certain people following the plan is another discussion. Neither Revelations or Deuteronomy have much bearing on Roman Christianity or reality. They do declare in Deuteronomy that God is one so they get something right.
  12. I don't worship Jesus, I don't worship God much, an entity like God is above the desire to be worshipped. Also, I only use the word God for convenience to convey a concept or idea.
  13. Yes others have speculated that Jesus did not die on the cross, that deserves its own thread. Even the Muslims believe they put a likeness up. Some think it was staged - he was taken down after a few hours yet it took days to die from crucifixion. The Muslims have it that Jesus went to Kashmir afterwards. The Buddhists do have a record of a great healer called 'Isa' or 'Esa' who went and studied with them but that was before the crucifixion. They know this 'Esa' as Jesus. Its possible he went back there but others, spiritualists say he died of old age, can't remember where.
