    Spiritual fascism

    I guess you're right. It just made me feel uncomfortable because in his mind I needed help in certain respects, and in my mind I didn't.

    Vampires

    Not comfort so much, but a way to justify how they are feeling instead of face up to things. I quite like the hug a vampire day idea. Although I can't imagine having much of a take-up...

    Where the West is wrong

    I'm confused about this too. What does "western" mean? It seems that for a lot of people it means that you have a mcadonalds in your nearest city and know who Britney Spears is. Is it more the idea of materialism and capitalism? I agree that there is a dominant culture spreading around the...

    Vampires

    Hmm. It seems to me after reading your linked article that vampires are just people with psychological problems manifesting themselves in phsyical symptoms (similar to manic depression) and social problems. I can see how believing yourself to be a vampire in this case would be comforting because...

    Desiderata

    This is a poem written in the 50s and I've always found it inspirational and comforting. As far as I'm aware it isn't linked to a particular religion. -------- DESIDERATA Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without...

    Underlying order

    I've been thinking about science for a few years now since many of my friends are physicists (and some of them devout Christians, funnlily enough!). I've learnt a small amount about nanophysics and particles. As far as I can understand it, the smallest level of understanding that humans have...

    Muslim Religion

    I think many people in this kind of discussion get bogged down in historical discussions about who did what to whom. There isn't one religion that hasn't had some kind of atrocity committed in its name. The fact being that every individual has a different interpretation of their religion and...

    Without faith but curious

    I don't consider myself to have any kind of faith. So why am I here, you ask? Well, I obviously live with people who have faith and I do find it fascinating. I've always been questioning from a young age (my parents used to tease me about asking questions like "why are we here?"). I do feel a...

    music and spirituality

    My boyfriend says that I analyse music too much and that it spoils it. What I try to explain to him is that when I listen to music, each time I hear the same song, I pick out different patterns and sounds depending on the mood that I'm in. Music is also a link to how I was feeling in the past. I...
