We might all have different beliefs but we're all stuck in the same place so when times are tough we should set all differences aside, rally up, join together and get through it.
Do I sound too Utopian? Hey, at least I'm honest.
Well most religions believe in the exact same thing. So it should be how you say, and will slowly keep moving in that direction.
The difference comes not from the religions themselves, but the people who decide to seperate themselves from other religions. "No, there is no Zeus, only God.(Replace Zeus with Dana, and God with Zuul, or any other diety)"
Christianity, Catholicism, Wiccan, Buddhism, Shamanism, Ancient Greek, Nordic, Shinto, Satanic(not devil worship) etc.
We all believe in generally the same thing, we believe in the same principles.
Just some names have been changed, and some things have been added in by bureaucrats to "con" people into joining their religion.
We "all" believe in a divine. We "all" believe in an afterlife. We "all" believe in being a good person.
That is, for the most part, the fundamentals of religion, fundamentals that I can safely say most everyone on these boards believe in(I think.)
