    Religion, what an interesting concept. There are many of them on this tiny planet of ours. All religions honesty believe they are following the path. Some say, believe as we do or we’ll chop off your head. Others say, believe as we do or you’re doomed to burn in hell. Religions of all flavors were begun eons ago by men who lived in clay huts, who knew nothing about the universe they lived in. You see, they knew they were correct because god spoke to them. For the most part we have the religion we have due to the randomness of birth. A bible thumping preacher born it th US Midwest, could have been a Hindu if born in India for example. We now exist in the 21st century and know much more about things than the originators of most religions. Honestly, I know some people who say there is no god, I know others who claim there is a god, no doubt about it. I wonder how anybody could claim for certain one way or the other. Some believe the concept of god was created by the ancients to give hope and make sense of the unknowable. I for one believe we do not know what’s possible, therefore anything is possible. I just which there wasn’t so much killing in the name of religion…
