Baffled...

Guess it is that time year...Anyone watching the news? Sad state when so many people are losing their lives over something, that in the grand view of the world, is as silly as going to war because one group of people who believe in the toothfairy thinks that money should be left under the pillow and another group of people think that the toothfairy should leave the money on the night stand......missing the point that there is no toothfairy....

Hopefully one day, people will again realize that the "Gods" they worship today are NO different than the Gods ancient folk worshipped.

Zeus, Oedipus, Apollo etc... are forgotten Gods that millions of people believed in at one point in time.

I hope at some point that people learn to deal with the fact that as far as we know, we are alonr in the universe. There is no "daddy" that will take care of us in the end. Let's search for the REAL answer of why the universe exists.

But in the end, the masses of sheep will stick with the nice and convenient answer they have been force fed.

I totally understand! Growing up to be taught to be Catholic instead of getting the choice to be Catholic is shitty. By growing up and relizing that you and only you are in charge of your destiny is really hard for some people to fathom, because then they have no one else to blame, but themselves for their mistakes.
