In reality the majority of religious people are going to agree (with me) that any other religion is nonsense - unfortunately they are unable to see their own religion as others (the majority) see it.

Not so. Muslims, Christians, and Jews all share the same Abrahamic origin. Disagreement is not tantamount to thinking it's "nonsense". Hinduism is a very diverse religion, all on its own, and Buddhism doesn't tend to make negative judgements about other religions. So your little "majority" doesn't seem like much after all. Rolleyes

I prefer fairies.  Wink

Guess what, wegs? I went hiking there again and someone took my fairy door. It was low and well hidden. It had to be a child. An adult wouldn't have been as curious as a child. 

Oh, well. I'll build another one and hide it in a different spot for the next child that comes along. 

With or without God, we can still create magical moments.

I wonder if he/she/they knew what it was. Hmm. There's something magical indeed about fairy folklore.

Indeed. 

And perhaps, one's spiritual journey (if we want to label it that) is really what it's about. I think whether one is atheist/agnostic/spiritual/religious...it's all about self discovery.  Heart If it becomes something dreadful and cumbersome, then whatever it is you're ''following'' is likely the wrong path.
