Pull the wool over your own eyes

Don't pay someone else to do it for you!

I took the survey and this is what the man tells me about my, uh, religiosity:

1. Liberal Quakers (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (98%)
3. Secular Humanism (97%)
4. Neo-Pagan (93%)
5. New Age (88%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (86%)
7. Orthodox Quaker (82%)
8. Mahayana Buddhism (79%)
9. Taoism (75%)
10. Theravada Buddhism (73%)
11. Baha'i Faith (68%)
12. Reform Judaism (68%)
13. Nontheist (62%)
14. Jainism (62%)
15. Scientology (62%)
16. New Thought (58%)
17. Sikhism (58%)
18. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (52%)
19. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (48%)
20. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (44%)
21. Islam (43%)
22. Orthodox Judaism (43%)
23. Seventh Day Adventist (43%)
24. Hinduism (41%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (34%)
26. Roman Catholic (34%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (27%)

But, I don't think I'd agree with the Liberal Quakers because sometimes violence is warranted. You come into my home with the notion of doing harm to me and mine and I will drop you before that happens.

And who knows what kind of bicycles they ride?

There are no answers. Anyone who tells you they know more about this than you is trying to get you to buy something or into your pants (sorry, Catholics). Pull the wool over your own eyes, because- whatever you want to tell yourself- that is all you'll be doing. Can a drop of water contain the ocean?

"Plunge into the vast ocean of Consciousness
Let the drop of water that is you
Become a hundred mighty seas.
But do not think the drop alone becomes the ocean
The ocean too becomes the drop."

And, plus I know the real secret. Which I'll gladly tell you if you prove yourself worthy by sending me $30US.

Or, I guess you could just go ride a bike and Do Good.

I may have to take my membership to another congregation. I am Deist, and I was under the distinct impression that you were too. Seriously, I am Deist. I love the confused look I get when someone ask what religion I am. Most people don't realise that most of our Founding "In God We Trust" Fathers were not what we think of as "Christians" now.
