    Religion is a man made effort, written by man, created by man and man wrote that it was an invisable God to told him to write it.. and you better believe it or you will go to burn in hell. But if you follow what i tell you to do you can go to a land of bliss and happyness..

    This was made by man. Man who wanted to control people. Man who wanted people to do what they are told and more over, not do certain things.

    God never made up the 10 commandments. God never said anything to anyone alive here. However it is for sure that man wrote them down and no body here knows that man, they just trust in him because they are scared that 'God' told him so.. And if you dont trust God.. who do you trust? The devil! With all his fire and tormenting he will torture you for ever if you do not trust in this man and his commandments.

    Im sorry, but the more i think about religion the more i despise it and the more i see it destroying the essence of the truth of God. Simple as that.

    On this, I could not agree with you more.

    the more i see it destroying the essence of the truth of God. Simple as that.
    If I may ask of you - what do you perceive as this essence? What is this 'truth of God'?

    Our creator, earth, the stars, the sun, the vast sky, a human being..

    God can be found within these things.. It is the ineffable.. It is within this reality. No faith is needed, it is the connection to us and everything around us, although we experience the world subjectivley we are absolutley connected to everything, those who know this are on the path to selflessness, true unity with nature and the true godhead.

    Ok, still working at understanding you here, so if I may ask; You seem to be saying that 'everything' is 'god'. Am I on the right track, and if so, what is your understanding of this 'true godhead'?

    I have a couple of questions myself...

    Does this belief make you feel superiour or more important than people who don't believe as you do?

    Do you think this belief makes you righteous and infallible?

    Are you capable of admitting there's some possibility of you being wrong in your beliefs?

    The word godhead is progressively realized first as the impersonal all pervasive oneness of reality. God will be known when one experiences it. It is within all things. Maybe you have experienced.

    Obviously - ''Does this belief make you feel superiour or more important than people who don't believe as you do?''

    It is a truth that we are connected to everything around us, we are part of earth and the earth is one with the sun, the sun being one with all existence in space, no thing is seperate despite what our limited senses tell us.
    The way i feel about these matters is irrelevant.

    Obviously - ''Do you think this belief makes you righteous and infallible?''

    The more one looks upon the world in oneness the more one feels free of selfish pursuits. If this is righteousness in the sense of upliftment in spirtual and wordly aspects then yes, i do feel up lifted the more i understand how i am part of nature.
    Infallible, no, i am constantly finding errors in my thoughts.

    Obviously - ''Are you capable of admitting there's some possibility of you being wrong in your beliefs?''

    If someone shows me a higher form of truth i will change to that truth, as truth is my pursuit.

    You haven't demonstrated why your beliefs are true.

    How do you define God?

    This is my point to you.

    It is not my job to define God for you and more over i cannot directly define God.

    Ineffable - Indefinable through words which intend attemptment to define it or describe it.

    It is your pursuit to define God for yourself, to obtain godhead.

    Without a definition it is nothing. Which would imply that God does not exist or is an unknown.

    Perhaps you would be interested in a topic I created some time ago?

    Trying to define something nonexistant is hard, indeed.

    It is not so much what God's defination is now, rather the times in life that it is explained and understood through interactions with other people and nature.
