Any god
worthy of worship
~ would not require it ~
or even encourage such things.

I believe that for every drop of rain that falls,
an equivalent amount of moisture is reallocated.

I believe that knowledge is good
n the more ye know the better off ye are.

I believe that worship of a deity
is a sign of a dangerously primitive culture.

I believe that religion is a primitive concept; that any search for any god, or any higher power, can be theoretically accomplished by exploring what is known and/or knowable; and that it is wrong to deny the search for, or admission into evidence of, a true proven fact - and especially perverse when the clandestine reasons behind doing so are merely to preserve the status quo, the most obvious example of this being the perpetuation of mass ignorance, on a global scale, for the benefit of a relative few - and the continued oppression of all the rest.

 - politics -
I believe that discrimination based on religion, race, gender, or sexual preference; makes about as much sense as discrimination based on hair-style, toe-nail thickness, nostril size, or condiment preference.
I believe that when a person reaches physical sexual maturity, they should be allowed to explore that area of their humanity ~ and even encouraged. Further, it is cruel to deny them the right to explore that part of what we are, and instead being conditioned to suppress it, which can easily lead to misdirection of that most instinctive and fundamental physical and psychological energy.
In a perfect world, each of us would have been fully prepared by that age, emotionally as well as physically (frankly, by sane, safe adult and young adult teachers; our first physical experiences preferably by someone only slightly older), in an ongoing, incremental course until we are fully matured adults; unclouded by years of adolescent insecurity, torture, shame and the exponentially devastating consequences arising from mass ignorance, stewing in years of being alone.
Additionally, I believe that monogamy perpetuates jealousy - which is incongruent to a happy, healthy, wholesome, loving relationship. The presence of jealousy is congruent to psychological slavery, emotional servitude - thus altogether unhealthy, and a big part of our problem.

I believe that politics exists to serve and protect those currently in power. I believe that the 2000 election was stolen and there will be no indictments in our lifetime, or the lifetimes of those guilty parties involved. I believe that society will grow more placid, yet less immune, to these diabolical behind the scenes meanderings - and that eventually, our decendants will read the Bill of Rights in historical context, with bland curiosity.

I believe that the technology exists to manifest and maintain a society beyond our wildest scifi utopian dreams - but that there is yet no technology to protect society from those among us who would use these ideas to destroy it all. A power source is available, about the size of a deck of cards, that would provide all of a single person's electrical wattage needs for an entire extended lifetime - but there is nothing yet to prevent a terrorist from strapping that on a laser scalpel and slicing crowds in half. We could disintegrate and recycle our refuse with something like a cross between a microwave oven and a trash compactor - but it would therefore be all that much easier to permanently and untraceably dispose of a dead body. Therefore, it is immensely important to keep the world at large as technologically primitive as possible - at least until we figure out how to round up all the homicidal maniacs, especially before they attain any power and/or large number of followers.
Additionally, I believe that if we were all individually allowed to do for a living what we are most suited for, everything we are most talented at, all that we most enjoy, there would be no need for money - and there would soon be no such thing as crime; and therefore very little need for an all encompassing, all powerful government body.
 - magic pill -

I believe that people from other planets, beings from other worlds, entities from other realms, brothers from other mothers, exist and have visited this planet. I believe that UFOs, crop circles, pyramids, Atlantis, the Face on Mars and other unexplained phenomenon are entirely explainable - but we'll prolly hafta broaden our minds justa lil bit foist.

 - words of wisdom -
I believe that the universe, galaxy, solar system, planet and ecosystem upon which we hang our hats, and currently reside, is entirely alive; and we are but parasites - but this is not such a bad thing after all, as all of our parasites likely have parasites themselves, and that this is likely a natural and infinite state of existence.
Additionally, I believe that the clouds, rocks, water, land, plants and anything else you can imagine are equally alive and possess comparable consciousness - and also that there is a Doggie Heaven and Kitty Heaven, both of which are entirely accessible to our Heaven, but not necessarily to each other ;o)

I believe that when you die, your mind and/or soul vibrates at a certain frequency depending on what kind of person you are, how ye think n feel etc - and that determines what plane of existence you will occupy, and also what you will eventually be reincarnated into next - bad vibes weigh you down, good vibes lighten yer load - so if yer a real fuckhead, yer gonna tune in with all the other savage assholes who aren't currently inna body ~ that, u could call hell - n if they wanna hang out at or near this planet's molten core where it's all about fire n perpetual torture, there's prolly little stoppin em - same way with heaven - groovy people are prolly on a happy hippie wavelength, flyin around in the clouds, helpin people when they can - so, try to think of life as a test as to how good a person you can be ;o)
Additionally, I believe that we are constantly surrounded by our ancestors - and that they are an invaluable source of guidance, even if we are not entirely open to the idea.

I believe that, while most people are essentially good, the civilization on this planet is predominantly that of a warlike culture - and that basically, what it all boils down to is a chronic lack of guidance.
The history of the world, what we learn in school, and what is emphasized predominantly therein, can be perhaps most easily described as a series of events (a domino effect, if you will) based on the premise that people don't want other people tellin em what to do, but people tell em what to do anyways, and they're often fairly insistant about it.
 - humanity -

I believe that when you throw a frisbee in to the air,
it will come back to you if the wind is right.
If, on the other hand,
you toss a pie tin wildly into the ether
and for no apparent reason it comes back to you
you may be safe to say that you are fairly blessed
or at least have experienced some high randomness.
In any case, some wiggy chaos theory is likely involved.

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.

Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.  - t h h g t t g -

Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.

And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, one girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.

Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terribly stupid catastrophe occurred, and the idea was lost forever.

You shall love 
the Lord your God 
with all your heart, 
and with all your soul, 
and with all your mind. 
This is the great and 
first commandment. 
And a second is like it, 
you shall love 
your neighbor 
as yourself.

~ Jesus Christ
