Are you mentally prepared? If so, good. You may continue. If not, scroll back up, try to prepare yourself.. and if all else fails, click the little box in the upper right hand corner with the x in the middle of it.

So this is a post about my religious beliefs, and what I believe happens when I die. Or at least, what I hope what will happen when I die. To begin, I’ll start by saying that I was born a Christian, and that when I was a mere infant, some ass dripped or dipped my head in some kind of holy water. I believe its called baptizing. I don’t care if that’s not exactly what they do, but you get the jist of it. Anyways, for many years I believed in god, and in Christianity as a whole. I believed in a heaven and a hell. Something happened along those lines that made me realize that, to me, there was a good chance that the religions we have in today’s society are.. well.. not believable/true/whatever. Gasp! Blasphemer! Alright, Jesus Christ.. lol shut up and let me continue with my outrageous theory.

The religion Christianity [and all of it’s little cracker spawn cousins], Islam, Buddhism, ect.. were created thousands of years ago. As we all know, things created a long time ago tend to change throughout time. Words get misinterpreted through translations, scribes may replace certain words… you catch my drift. Right, anyways, this makes religion lose a little bit of it’s credability. What else is there? Right. Facts change over time. You know how stories get exaggerated over time from word of mouth? A man today can catch a fish and hold out his arms to measure the size of the fish, and by the time it gets to the 15th person, the tiny fish that was barely edible is now the biggest fish in the lake. Apparently Jesus performed some kind of miracle that consisted making an endless amount of food to feed an endless amount of people. Jesus probably did feed a village, but as word spread of his generosity, he, in some eyes, fed nations. The point I’m trying to make is, the people of that time made these ordinary people religious messengers from god. They were idolized so much, that they went from being a normal person, to a hero.

I think I’m going somewhere with this.. hang tight. So, the thousands of years generally changes and warps a lot of information in these religious books, which make them very unbelievable to begin with. People idolize each other, and those who are idolized become greater than what they originally were. There’s a reason why religions became so popular among so many cultures in society. Thousands of years ago, there wasn’t much to govern people with. A fear of religion helped form civilizations, giving them a much stronger foundation on which to govern. Religions gave people their basic moral values. Religion also gave the right people power. This is my belief.

I’m not an Atheist. I’d like to think of myself as Agnostic. Agnostic? What the fuck is that? Well here’s a official definition [thanks to dictionary.com]: “a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience.” . That’s the nice way to put it. I just like to say that I don’t know what the hell to believe in. I’d like to look up and think that something is out there.. controlling this big fucking mess.. but.. eh.. who knows, really? Not me, that’s for sure. I do know, however, that I do not believe in the current religions that is found throughout today’s society. If you look back in time, you can see that even Christianity was kinda like the Scientology of the ancient world. It was outlawed, and people were killed for their beliefs in it. But guess what? It soon grew in popularity. It’s popularity was so vast, that leaders of nations had to convert themselves to Christianity to win people over, and basically to save their own hides. You may mock me now, but I believe that there is a very good chance that in hundreds of years, Scientology could be the new Christianity [in popularity terms, of course]. No, I don’t believe in Scientology, but a few others do. It even has its own neato book. I’m just saying, in hundreds of years, it could be forgotten by society that the religion started off as a joke, and it could pick up pace, and become a respectable religion in… hundreds of years. Why? Because people forget.

If I’m Agnostic[ish]… what do I believe happens when we die? That’s a very good question. Since I can believe in whatever the hell I want to, and since nobody knows what the fuck happens when we die, I’d like to think that when I die, I will become some kind of super being. I can create and destroy worlds and cultures with my mind. I can write destinies for anything or anyone. Can live the life of whatever my imagination lets me. People who died before me interact with each other through psychic means. Wow, I must be smoking something to spurt out that bullshit. Whatever. That’s my “heaven.” Deal with it. I like to think it’s going to happen, but there’s a good chance that it won’t. You know what it is? It’s peace of mind.

It’s trying to know what the unknown is.

And as you know, the unknown really fucks with mankind’s head.
