I hope so. I think trolls have all but killed the metaphysical board. Twitty says they don't let that happen, but they've ignored anything I've sent about it.

Just ignore the Trolls...I know easier said than done.


It's really too bad that people become so one-minded about their own particular belief.

A common problem with many monotheistic religions...after all you cannot accept or have any competitors...;^)

This is my primary gripe with organized religion. Personally, I think all religions teach good things about spirituality, but it's the organization of it, and the quest to control the masses, that poisons it. I think that, in and of itself, robs people of the very spirituality they are seeking through the church.

True...I would caveat your statement as follows "all religions teach some good things" since most religions also teach many bad things especially for large powerful ones the bad things of intolerance and hate.

I read a good statement a while back that said "christian religion for the most part now just teaches about jesus and no longer teaches what he wanted or believed".

To me mainstream religion, Xian, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, even to a large degree Buddhism now mostly tell you do and don't and completely forget about the why and how. Teh tell you do this and don't do that, they chant who is better and who is not.....and forget the why we must care and how we can care.
