Hi all ...

Hi all ...
I decided after a couple of weeks to sign up here and discuss this screwed up subject. I'm coming in from a totally different direction, and we can get into that later. Regarding "beliefs" ...


1) Do I believe in the existence of a "GOD?"
Data shows this to be a really screwed up picture, but really no more screwed up than the polytheistic beliefs that preceded it. Details will follow when I post the main thread.

2) Regarding Christianity (which was my approach to all this since I was a kid - and that goes back a bunch of decades - I'm 73) what's up with that religion? Again, data shows major flaws in the picture that people (as usual) refuse to see. The work I've done on this was verified by the work of biblical scholar and linguist Dr Bart Ehrman, whose approach was to rip the entire subject apart, while my approach was to deal only with the key. Christianity also was a rewrite of another religious approach, and we can get into that too.

3) Do I believe this "spiritual world" exists?
Bottom line - there IS SOMETHING going on. I call it another dimensional world, and based on what I've looked into, it's seemingly there ... it's the "explanations" that are all screwed up.

At any rate, we can get into all this. Let's see if people have anything to say here.

Hi ... yeah, I was gonna start a separate thread, but gotta run to the store suddenly ... I'll be back.

We’ll see what people have to say about it elsewhere. We don’t use the Introductions thread for discussion or debate.

Welcome aboard.

Yep, and I'm already getting bad vibes from you.
