    I was hoping to read something you had written, with references and all that.

    I wrote a lot of things some time back but it was all lost, I moved around a lot. The knowledge on mary mag has been so distorted. She represents the human female as a human goddess in the image of the female counterpart of god. Maybe I will sit down and write again when I have more time. I wanted to show you though that there is soooo much information out there on the female divine. It just seems that the male half dominates the conversations so much.

    I have to be honest though, I just looked them over but I don't consider those sites to be reliable sources. But I prefer leaving their evaluation to other people here who I respect in their knowledge surrounding religions.

    I think you should always refer to the sources whenever you claim something, it's so much easier to have a dialogue when everyone have the same material.

    I have to ask, don't you think that what you claim is very different from the mainstream beliefs? I just think most people will have a hard time just trusting your word on it.

    My concept of god is twofold; to me what most people refer to as god is the objective universe/natural universe. Almost all Right Hand Path belief systems are atoning with this objective universe. What I consider god is my Higher Self/Dæmon.

    I don't believe in a supernatural being known as God.

    There is a whole KINGDOM and this kingdom really does exist and every being has wings to include god and the female counterpart. The whole universe was created in this image, however human beings dont have wings never have never will. Heavenly beings are much bigger and made up of more light , energy tightly packed. Belief or not doesnt change these facts.

    You see, you were a good as gold until you stated this as fact . . . where can you back up any of these so called 'facts'? You can't, because they don't really exist, not in the objective universe anyway.

    Miracles that have happened documented throughout history have proven these facts. There is so much evidence of this. Do you deny that?

    Of course I deny that, miracles can be explained, since they aren't really miracles.

    And how do you explain them? Can you give me an example, say for the holy spirit ?

    You know I noticed your pic. Did you know that bats are really birds that have been living in dark caves and if they were to live in the light they would get their feathers back?

    look, i have read raphael patai. i dare say i understood it rather better than you did. i have also read baring and cashford and am quite familiar with goddess worship in its various forms, you might be quite surprised to know. however, i think your understanding of it is quite immature. you seem to have swallowed merlin stone and starhawk's frankly made-up version of history without even the ghost of critical thought. here's an idea - lay off the cheap neo-pagan pseudo-history and learn a little about how things actually work in these systems that you so evidently know very little about.

    Merlin was a divine being who incarnated into the human body. And denial of the female half is the immaturity. Boys who are not men yet regardless of their age. I may be young regardless of my age in some ways but I know the religious facts.

    That would be a miracle :D Bats are not related to birds, and do not have any closely related orders.

    They really are. They have distorted due to living in caves in the dark for so long afraid of living in the light. You know those vampire movies are a bunch of bullogna. The light doesnt harm bats like the pic you have it tranforms them back into birds....:)
