I believe the religions all of them, to include new age spirutality all have aspects of reality in them BUT are 99% distorted. However, that's not to say people who do good things for others in belief of even the distortion are not doing their best to evolve. Atheism is included. It's a belief of what people don't believe to be real. I am not an "ist" or an "ism" - ite. However, my experience can talk to all and includes what is beyond human and beyond space alien.
Why are you here?
To listen to others and share my experiences, that to be honest are hard to take as they came from Ti and Do, the two people called the UFO TWO and the TWO Witnesses and the founders of the people known as the Heaven's Gate group of whom I was a part for 19 years. No group exists now and I don't want one. That's part of the problem, when we organize what was meant to be to remain unorganized.
Why you left your religion.
I have never been a religionist nor spiritualist (modern day new religonists) and never will be. Don't need others to believe in what I believe in, however that doesn't mean I think there is nothing to outside the box thinking. Atheism is very inside the box as are all religions because I have been outside the box in my mind and perhaps in other ways.
