So I just read "We Are The Other People". This has not only cleared up a few things, but made a few things a bit more unclear. (To fully understand what all I'll be talking about you may want to read it first. XD)
Anyway, I'll give you quick insight on my religious beliefs.
Simply put, I do believe in a God. But I am not a full on bible-thumper. I do not live by the "Bible". Mainly because I believe (that if there is truly a God) He/She wouldn't be a dictator that basically says "Do what I say if you want to be sin free". Also, doesn't it seem that religious classes and church and such are a bit demanding? (My opinion.)
But I accept all people for their own religions. I think all people can believe what they want (even though I do make bible-thumpers (die-hard Christians, Lutherans... etc) very often)
But I also believe in (as I so put it) the "gray" area of this world. (Try telling some people this world isn't black and white..) That gray area being the pagan ways (everything of this website). I believe in reincarnation, and also that there's a reason that we have been put onto this earth. I fully believe in karma/the rule of 3 (I think they're similar), spellcasting, you name it, if it's here, I have yet to find a flaw with it. (Unlike the bible, which is rather flawed in my eyes)
I also believe in the phrase "We're only human" meaning everyone makes mistakes. And you should not have to go to a confessional for everything.
Okay, that's probably a good amount of my religious beliefs, now, the main topic...
Now, I feel I could be one of the "Other People" But how could it truly be known if you are from the "Other People" or of descent of Adam and Eve? Now, I feel there would be many, many more of the "Other People" seeing that Adam and Eve were only 2 of hundreds or more. (Basically I'm saying, how would I know if I'm really of the "Others"?)
That being said, if Adam and Eve were only 2/???? why is it that (it seems) most people choose to live by the Bible? Which is definitely not all of our stories. The only reason I could think, is that most people are just pressured into religion by their parents until they finally open their eyes to the world they live in. Simply put, this world isn't perfect. Neither are we as people/a society.
So if anyone has anything to say/add/answer, feel free. I'm needing others opinions right now.
By the way, I'm sorry if this seems choppy, but it's rather hard to type when your mother is trying to talk to you about wrestling.... And most of this can probably be easily answered, but remember, I'm 15... and I tend to overthink some things.
Well, I thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to your replies.
