I think this is a great thread!
I am somewhat agnostic, which is the belief that science can and does explain how the world came to be (through evolution and not creationism). I guess I just got tired of all the hypocrisy in modern day Christianity, which was the faith I was born into. I also have a set of weird beliefs that don't really belong to one religion.
I do believe that there is an all powerful being, the Almighty, who sees all and knows all, and who governs the world, and all the life forms that came to be within. The Almighty is a kind, pure, and benevolent entity who loves all who walk the earth, irregardless of what they do, and asks only to be recognized and praised from time to time. The Almighty has a polar opposite entity called the Destroyer or Chaos, who seeks to destroy and corrupt all that is good. These two entities are locked in an eternal battle of good and evil, over the fate of humanity.
There is also a Great Beyond, where our souls depart to when our bodies die. Those that have done good, go onto complete bliss within it, while others, who have cold blackened hearts in life, will burn in eternal torment when they die.
I also believe all life is sacred, whether it be that of an ant, or a human. It hurts me to see people treat the creatures, and furthermore, the natural beauty of this earth, so inhumanely and with such disregard. Nature is a truly powerful thing that should be respected. The Earth is alive, after all, and full of life energy. We humans are destroying that life energy and as such, causing the earth a slow and painful death. We are supposed to be the shepherds of Mother Earth, but instead, we are destroying it.
There are some who truly do try to respect the earth and all its life, but I feel its too little too late now.
That is what I believe.
“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.”
