It's been forever and a day since I've posted here. Initially I came to this site due to a class assignment for a philosophy of religion class I had taken in my undergrad. I knew at the time I was very interested in studying religion, but perhaps I didn't understand at that time just how engrossed my life would become with religion.
As many know, I'm am atheist. A screaming, bitter atheist at times, but despite this, I find my passion within religion, in particular that of western…Read More

Notice the logic in this statement "and". The juxtaposition creates controversy. Replace the "and" with an "or" the logic creates empathy. Therefore, do ceremonial and ritual acts "written or non-written" preclude our understanding of what we believe? If you believe something.. is it based only on personal experience ? What are your beliefs ?

By the time he reached the steps his hand was covered in a film of dust. He mounted the steps into the deeper darkness of the stage, wiping his hand on the leg of his jeans as he went.
Now the nostalgia hit. There was a time when he wanted nothing more than to be on stage. He thought performance…Read More

Dumuzi and Geshtinanna seem to be the origional expression of the gnostic concept of soul body duality as male and female. I've been pushing closer and closer to the theory that Dionysus and Ariadne are another rendition of this same theme.
In the myth of Inanna she is released from the underworld on the condition that another soul goes back to take her place. It is origionally her loyal servant that the deamons try to take back with them, but Inanna objects and protects her…Read More
