I don't see any significant difference between one religion and another. They are all largely made up of people trying to convince other people to share their beliefs. Why do they do this? I'm not going to answer that - but I do have my opinion!
Organised religion causes more evil in the world than anything else. Even people of what is essentially the same religion fight over whose variation is best.
I have my own personal beliefs. They are not related to any religion, and I don't believe they would be of use to anyone else.
One thing I am prepared to share: I firmly believe that the God(s) help those that help themselves.
A lot of stuff in the bible makes sense to me. Most of it is written with the best intentions. It's the people that peddle it I don't trust. Another book worth reading, and one I much prefer to the bible is "The Prophet" by Kahil Gibran.
Dragan - I strongly suggest you reserve judgement on anything that you do not have direct first hand experience of. I have experience of religion. It caused me a lot of problems. You don't have experience of using hallucinogens to treat CH so please sit out of this debate.
