(Basically, this blog now has 5 contributors to it, Controvery and Blasphemy are the deists, Sacred and Unbiased are the "Christians" *rolls eyes* and Afrikim is the neutral one. Sacred btw is/was also known as Africanqueen so yeah ttlolla I took your advice. We want truth, and we believe we can balance out the blog that way if we have differing views/perspectives. - Controversy) Now back to Miss Sacred's Post.
Hi, for the purposes of this blog, I will be known as Sacred.
For those who are familiar with this reference, I am the Jekyll of this blog. When I was asked to do this, well, I reasoned and after out-reasoning myself, I decided that there is a lot of ignorance when it comes to religions, that is held...not only by my fellow authors, but also by those who comment. Therefore, I decided that for the overall balance of the blog, my insight might be just that equilibrium.
Before you read whatever I have to write, let me give you a bit of my background, and maybe it will make understanding my blogs much easier.
I am off course female. I have my own blog that is dedicated to my specialty...politics and policy analysis. However, I have done extensive studies into world religions. Therefore, while I am a Christian, I have read and own most of the religious texts of the major world religions..... I am not going to go into deep details here.There is a blog that is coming up that will do a brief introduction into world religions.
I am a rebel. Plain and simple. I rebel against establishments, and yes, that has included religious establishments, which has led to me being a christian at my own choosing....and not because my parents or my friends are Christians.
I believe that there are Absolute Truth, but there are also grey areas in truth that exist. While truth can be circumstantial, there are un-debatable truths.
I tolerate people who do not agree with me. In fact I love to engage people who do not agree with me. However, I have low tolerance for stupidity, and hotheadedness. What is the difference? One is an intelligent discourse, and the other is plain rubbish and a pursuit of showing off.
One more important thing, I believe in Science, and I believe in Science technology and its advancement...however, I am highly and absolutely critical on the ability for science to explain everything. Anyone who believes that science is the all in all of life needs to get a reality check.
