What's Essential?

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Sep 10, 2007

...say to each other "I love you?" How about a hug from a stranger to relieve your tension? Oh, I forgot that times are different and if you feel uneasy hugging a stranger, hug your pet! (I don't know what to tell you if you own fish.) It makes no sense if you have an argument over race and religion. That type of R and R is subject to war, and it's a never ending battle because everybody has a point of view. There's no answer! Simple! If you put little babies of different nationalities in one room what do you think will happen? "They play together." By now, I bet you feel like Frank... (more)

I Sing in the Shower. I could Probably Do It.

By Gary Schwind, published on Sep 6, 2007

...time. I was also a big fan of Nepal and the Himalayas. Very simple people, very religious people. It was interesting to compare the people that live four days walk from any sort of fucking paved road, people that have never seen a car in their life, people that are really just into their religion. They’re praying multiple times every day, dressing a certain way and doing certain things to fully observe their religion. Coming from a place like this where Christianity is just such a convenient religion. You show up on Sunday morning and put your ten bucks in the basket and you can ... (more)

It's Easy If You Try

By Dany Bachir, published on Sep 3, 2007

...imagine how it would be like to have few more years to live. John Lennon once said: "Imagine there's no Heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace You may say that I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all... (more)

Inside the Gates of Reggae Rising 2007

By DrSinValley, published on Aug 27, 2007

...as large as dimes gaze into the lights, lost from everything outside of Reggae boundaries. Bodies, seduced by the melodies, uncontrollably follow the movements of the music. Again, the show peaks and everyone is unified through their positive enthusiasm. Ziggy Marley closes with 'Love is My Religion' , a slightly banal composition, but good for uniting a crowd. The exodus begins from the concert bowl to the camp. Parties rage through the night and into dawn. Deejays quiet before the sun rises. Everything is still from 6am until 10am or so. Mid-morning, the river is clear and inviting. It... (more)

Small Favors And Big Lies Makes For Human Tragedies

By Credo, published on Aug 7, 2007

...well at night as a nation who professes God, liberty or civil suitability, while others of the human species tolerate pandemonium and utter chaos. While history has long ago broached the barriers of technological advancements we still employ ancient remedies to solve an ancient problem. Yet religion has shown us the wisdom of the ages through a man named Jesus, who explained to us that we cannot truly save a person by giving them a fish, because it will last for just one meal, yet may we truly help and save a soul if we show them how to get their own, feeding them for the rest of their... (more)

Terrorism, the Endless War

By Credo, published on Aug 3, 2007

...We are equally obligated to do what we can for the Palestinian prisoners of war in Israel and the Muslim prisoners of war in Russia, America, and other places throughout the world.” http://www.uscrusade.com/ Even though we have automatically and systematically charged Islam the entire religion for the crimes of a few supposed terrorist and even thought we have not found the real criminals of 9/11 we hold Christianity and America innocent of the millions of innocent people killed at their hands in this unjust war. Islam is said to be the fastest growing religion in the world today... (more)

Beards, Glorious Beards

By dsnyder, published on Jul 2, 2007

...a relatively new face in the sports world, but what a wonderfully bearded face it is. Let’s put it this way, if you have a problem with Kimbo being number three why don’t you take it up with Kimbo. 2) Ricky Williams- Dear god what a beautiful beard. I am not sure which eastern religion he was trying to accept when he grew his facial hair long, but I am sure that that particular god approved. Imagine how that thing smelled, like pot, patchouli, and sweat. What a wonderfully, smelly man beard. 1) Captain Lou Albano- Perhaps the most grotesque beard in sports history, and... (more)

Things That I Just Don't Understand

By Geddy, published on Jul 2, 2007

...for sustenance, and I don’t see the lion trying to manipulate the prey into being eaten. The control that I am concerned about is when one person seeks to have another follow his direction, and then take advantage of them, to further his cause. I am now about to make a lot of enemies. Religions, to me, are a prime example of this. I grew up practicing the Catholic religion. I knew nothing else. I was led to believe, with good intent, that this way of life would be of great benefit to me. It wasn’t until much later, after I heard intelligent people with opposing views that... (more)

Ch. 6 Radical Priest :-

By Radical Priest, published on Jun 24, 2007

...a messenger brought a different message. It has been touted to this day as THE word of God, spoken by God and turned into ten stone etched phrases of spiritual law; though who actually carved them, or dictated them the first time could be considered open to conjecture, since none of the early religions touting these ten phrases can even agree as to what they said, meant or by whom they were given.

Either way, that premise alone has been the core of humanities war against its self ever since. Given that it is said that Moses supposedly re-carved them after smashing them in a rage,... (more)

The Fire Worshippers

By Crowbar, published on Jun 3, 2007

...and protection from the elements, as it kept away the animals in the night and gathered people together so that one day we could destroy ourselves. With the current debates over global warming and creationism versus evolution, it is important that no matter what we believe, no matter what religion we follow, that underneath it all we have never given up the worship and dominance of fire in our lives. However long we have been on this planet, we have failed to do one thing that every other animal is capable of doing and that is to adapt to our environment. We hail the concepts of... (more)
