This forum houses a lot of members of different faiths and different philosophies. I know I've engaged in discussion with some of you but I've unfortunately never went into detail in getting to know you and how your faith affects you.
In this thread if you would be so kind in explaining the following:
1) What is your faith (e.g. Religion)/If not religious what secular principles do you live by?
2) What aspects of your faith/philosophies enrich your life?
3) (Edit) What particular aspect...
Although most great religions claim their religion is the only path to salvation, I think all religions are trying to achieve the same goal. As far as I can tell, people just want to raise their children in piece and provide a better life for their children they they or their parents had. I think this is pretty much Universal all over the planet. We need to see our ourselves more as people of Earth and not so much the degrading labels we give each other to scapegoat our personal and...
. . . This brings up an issue I dealt with earlier today in a message in the Tree of Souls thread. If Israel isn't a different species, a non-sexual species, then the commandment that Jews not procreate with anyone but other Jews is racist. It suggests a form of racial superiority that could be damaged by interracial marriage.

Why or why not?
Bonus question: if you think that students would be better served by using this time to teach them about religion: why?
At present we give the self properties, length, width and weight because we identify with what we see as our body. It as been proven at "X" magnification that the lines that allow for these properties begin to blur, to the point of non-existence. An illusion does not mean that it doesn't exist but that it isn't what it appears to be. We are spirit/space/whatever and matter at the same time. If you were born and the first visual awareness of yourself was at a magnification that didn't allow...
I am at the point where I think Judaism is what is right for me, ( I would follow reform ).
But the nearest jewish reform community to me is roughly 1.5 - 2 Hours away.
Would I be a able to convert, given this circumstance. ( I would be committed and fully concentrated ).
On my way home from church a few days ago I found a book outside about summoning dragons. It was all wet from the snow, but I think I found the book for a reason
Have you ever summoned a dragon? Dragons are in the Book of Revelation therefore that's proof that they are real
Warning: You MUST cast at least one form of protective magic before you do this spell. It is extremely dangerous as it opens a beast gate (A gate to a dimension full of all the beasts you can imagine and more)...
