Pilot's Mess [chit-chat zone]

This is the forum to get to know your fellow pilots and the ONLY place to talk about everything else not really relevant to sci-fi movies, including your personal loves and interests. A true pilot doesn't discuss these issues while on duty.

Caution! Religion!

In a play called "The Plough and the Stars", one character tells another "I think we ought to have as great a regard to religion, so as to keep it out of as many things as possible". Now, this is a pretty fair statement. Religion tends to cause rows, flames, fights and wars. but I'm curious. What religion would you consider yourself? More importantly, what are your personal beliefs on sin, retribution, deities, death, the paranormal etc.

Re: Caution! Religion!

Not religious so sin,retribution and dieties have as little as possible impact on my daily life.
Death,yes it will happen;but until then its not something a healthy individual should let bother them unduely.
Tried it,and its a dead end.
As for paranormal,well if you used the word 'Unexplained',i most certainly believe in that....
Never seen a ghost so can't believe in them.

I believe there is one God, but I do not believe in any of the rules that man made and called religion.

Spiritual but not religious. And of the school that "There are more things in Heaven and Earth (Horatio), than are dreamt of in your philsophy."

Pet Peeve: Those who think they have a corner on the truth.

Weigh it all (from Inner Voice to Buddha to Shiva), find what works for you, chuck what doesn't and build your own philosophy/faith. We are all unique; let's act like it. And since we're all unique, and well within our rights to act like it, let's cut out the "rows, flames, fights and wars" over our differences of opinion.

Death=Unity with the Creator. No obstructions; all questions answered. Simple as that. No pearly gates, streets of gold, fire, brimstone or any other human point of reference. Those are great analogies when used to make a point, but we should probably recognize them as such. If I had my druthers, we'd become one with the Cosmos; never-ending -- part and parcel of the Spirit from which we came. Don't know if that's actually the case, of course.

Sin. (Eeesh.) Morality vs. The Ways of the World. Another never-ending struggle. Think I'll answer that one in the next life. More time.

Retribution. Man, I hope there is such a thing. I don't see much in the way of Justice in THIS world. (I talk to the Great Spirit about that a lot actually. And, incidentally, there's nothing wrong with the term, "Great Spirit". It fits as well as any other. Actually better, IMHO.)

Paranormal: Everything is paranormal. But, seriously... I think we all have a little psychic twinkle and guess where I think its origins are? Yep. We're already connected; there's just an awful lot of crap in the way. Regarding "paranormal" (of the commercial variety): No comment. And rightfully so, I think.

So, who wants to take a shot at me? Bring It On.

BTW, how brave of you to tackle THE subject. I like you already.


=======================
"What is Man without the beasts?
If the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit,
for whatever happens to the beasts happens to Man.
All things are connected."
