Over the last few months [after years of working with the ancient's symbolic codes], I've come to the view that the ancient's idea of 'god' was the energy source that makes the waves vibrate within the basic particles of matter. [string theory]
As a result of my conclusions, I've taken time to reflect on the enormity of what that might mean - should it be true - and compare that enormity with the 'rules' encoded in religions.
Without wishing to get into a debate as to whether the ancient's were correct, [I refer to a current thread on the outer space board titled the 'Scientific evidence for God' for those who might want to enter into such a debate], I wonder if any others have thought along the same lines.
An example of a 'rule' has found its way into Australian law this week with the passing of the legislation banning gay marriages. There can be no doubt in my mind that the idea of gays being unable to marry, originates from religious dogma. In fact the concept of marriage originates in religion.
Let's consider the enormity of what god might be? If god makes the waves vibrate in the basic particles of matter, then god exists within everything [not just on this planet] but on everything in known existence, including within a piece of dust floating in space billions of light years away.
It seems to me that such a god is unlikely to concern himself [herself or itself] with the issue of whether gays in Australia should be able to marry or not.
Having gone through the above thought process -- when I now read letters to the editor in the local newspaper, and note comments like 'gays are an offront to god', I can't help but wonder what god is being talked about.
It seems to me that -over time- man has created his own version of god to suit his own particular prejudices and hidden agendas.
