Sociology, Theology, Anti-Religion and Exploration: Forcing Humanity Forwards

Id, Wales.

I believe in God. I know I don't understand anything about 'him/her/it/them', even though I've read lots of stuff about different beliefs of what 'it' is. If you go to Google Earth and look down on how sparkly the world is, you have to admit, we've got something going on in comparison to the dull lumps of rock around us. Arguing about it all just defeats any good feelings you get from having faith, and makes for a miserable conversation. It doesn't take a lot to know, in your heart, what is right and what is wrong. I believe that we all believe the same things, and those things are simple manifestations or reflections of our own humanity. Some people think they know more than others. I think that the truth is that we actually know shit. Either we are flourishing, or we are surviving. It depends on how you feel each day. But the truth about what we all are, as humans, is very easy to see. You barely have to think to know the truth. I suppose you need ears and eyes though. Psychologists believe that we all have the same needs, but different wants, depending on how we have chosen to identify ourselves. We can't even meet all our own needs yet. Why would 'God' give us anything else to play with? I'm not saying we shouldn't talk about anything, but we perhaps we should start every conversation with 'Hi, I'm Id, I don't know shit but...'. Then we wouldn't be able to say 'Hi, I'm Id I don't know shit, but I think you're going to go to hell'. It would just sound stupid. Coz that's what we are, even though we might be a bit sparkly.
