    Hi Blizzardry,

    Sounds groovy. OK you don't like long words, but you forced me to check solipsism and now I need to ask you if you mean it metaphysically or epistemologically?:confused: :eek: :)

    I'm still searching for a religion and perhaps I'll never find one.

    Blizzardry,

    Your Lucidicist Wizardry sounds interesting. Where can I learn more about it? Keep in mind though I'm not up for a dialogue. I just want something to read.

    Snoopy, I think it's the metaphysical one. The epis... other one doesn't leave much encouragement for taking leaps of faith or gambling with life.

    Beckythatch, I have nothing written down. The trouble I'm having with words is that if you haven't seen it for yourself, all the words are just ideas. If you have seen it for yourself, then you'll understand all the words, but you kind of don't need them anymore, but I'll try.

    You are dreaming. There is no self, no other people, no god, no nothing, just this dream you're having. You will meet people, spirits, gods, animals, plants but they are all just part of the dream. If you're asleep in bed, and suddenly find yourself aware you're dreaming, it's called a Lucid Dream. So if you know that the entirety of reality is just a dream, you are Lucid. If you are able to live your wisdom and not just know it to talk about, you're a Wizard. But these are just words ;)

    For the purposes of the Comparative Religion forum I am a follower of Matrixism (the path of the One).

    For other real world purposes I am sometimes a Christian, sometimes a Buddhist, in frequently a Baha'i and often a Hindu. I haven't had much need to be a Muslim yet but who knows what the future might hold.

    Blizzardry, I have a hunch that you are not for real. That is I am not convinced that you are an authentic human being. Perhaps your just the computer simulated mouth piece of some sort of cabal. Or maybe you're a lawyer? Or a Hollywood script writer? Whatever it's all the same to me.

    Yeah, that's right Dynomight. I'm a Hollywood script writer working on your latest flash-in-the-pan religion. ;)

    I follow the religion of Universal Protectionism and I believe that;

    As a member of the elite
    Universe Protection Unit of the
    Space Ranger Corps, I protect the
    galaxy from the threat of invasion
    from the Evil Emperor Zurg, sworn
    enemy of the Galactic Alliance.

    Further I believe that:

    Right now, poised at the edge of
    the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been
    secretly building a weapon with the
    destructive capacity to annihilate
    an entire planet.

    Finally I believe that:

    I alone have information that
    reveals this weapon's only weakness.

    With so many Space Rangers following Universal Protectionism though it can get a little confusing because we all believe that we "alone have information".

    To infinity and beyond!

    Buzzly,

    It looks like you might have actually started something with this Universal Protectionism business.

    Were you the one who made this website for Universal Protectionism?

    I've got to admit this Toy Story religion is pretty cool. It's almost cool enough to get me to give up my chosen religion which is of course Dudeism. Like I said almost.

    Abide like The Dude,

    I am one of Jehovahs witnesses who are christians .
    but Jehovahs witnesses are no part of christendom ,
    because we like to stick to what the bible really teaches, so we have cast many manmade doctrines away from us . we like to get it right inline with the bible ,and the bible is our aurthority

    Awesome. Sweet avatar, too, the Dude. **** it, let's go bowling.

    ...anyway, I fall under the Pagan and Buddhist categories, I think.

    Greetings,

    I think most of the problems with religions worldwide stems from the etimology of the word itself:
    [12th century. Via French< Latin religion- "obligation, reverence"]

    I will contrast this with Thomas,

    His disciples questioned him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe?"
    Jesus said, "Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered."

    Therefore, I think we should consider change the word "religion" with "belief".
