Why are we all often enemies seeking to eliminate any and all other belief systems? I'll start with myself. I seek perfection, I choose to have faith in the belief of a Creator, a benevolent God who is perfect. He created the universe and all within it in an act of love. He then gave us a fairly simple set of requirements to join Him in perfection. Love Me and all of My creation. I see nothing in any other belief system that negates my belief. Works for me and that is all that is necessary. Science; I seek perfection. I believe the only way to achieve that is to learn all things, know and understand all things; I put my faith in that, works for me, that is all that is necessary. Humanism; I seek perfection. I put my faith an the innate goodness of man, the community of all of mankind. Works for me, that is all that is necessary. Atheist; I seek perfection. I will put my faith only in myself. Works for me, that is all that is necessary. There are other belief systems but they all seek the sane goal, the same destination. We all cry free will, the right to choose, freedom. The irony is that every individual has free will, the right to choose (and the responsibility to accept the consequences). Can all of us be right? Yes. Can all of us be wrong? Yes. All roads lead to and meet at infinity. Can any of us demand the right to put up roadblocks, seek to destroy or eliminate any road being used by another? No. Are any of our faiths immutable, locked, not subject to change? No. The problems arise because mankind has a universal, incurable disease. I call it "I" strain. everything we see, think, or do is filtered by the I (ego). Every act we perform is directed and influenced by our ego. Most of our actions to interfere with other peoples faith is based on our belief that our way is right(works for me!) therefore our way is the only way and the others must be ignored or eliminated. Are there any hard barriers between these belief systems? Some seem to think so, I and many others don't. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in the community of all mankind, and I believe in myself. I and many others also believe in facets of other systems as well. We all in some way or fashion seek perfection, Does anyone really care how we achieve that goal. The how is irrelevant, the destination is most certainly not. I wish all of you, all of mankind well, I hope(have faith) that we will succeed. Peace, Love, and Faith. Pappadave.
