What I do not believe in, in my heart of hearts, is religion. I mean no disrespect to those who do. But with all of the hyprocracies of the bible, the constantly morphing stories from absolute truth to metaphores, and the damnation, or the convenient minimization of it, for the modern culture makes it all a very uncomfortable swallow for the ulitimate self-serving salvation of it. All of this in one easy, ask no questions, simply toss aside logic and believe package.

Religion is a moral guide, not a way of life. This I believe.
