Well, upon request , I have initiated an infant
thread derived from the very last question posed
in the extensive * STORM, SLAYER [CROW] * series.
Are you there, Storm? Well, let's get started, shall we?

I was asked why I believe. I'm sure I would be
able to humor you , and our red-caboose, DICK ,but
I have an English paper to type this evening. It's
a quarter to ten [cen], so give me till a quarter
to eleven [cen]. This was just to kick off things.


In a nutshell, not cockle-shell, I have firm
beliefs in christianity because it is a) tradition
in my long line of family heritage ( as Scot-Irish ) ...b) It allows me to indulge and humble
myself totally before something in order to
focuse myself and the good I am capable of.
c) And finally, I practice the " faith " because
I feel it collaborates with contemporary life ,
including the institution and repition of morals,
character, inter-dependance and cooperation of other people in a society where its imperative that at least a small group of people become close.


To make a long story short, for now ;-) ... .
Worshiping God ( moderately ) all boils back
down to a ancient , instinctual urge to search
within myself; search for a higher state of being.
I use religion to its fullest. Discarding the
hypocritcal facets as I see fit. That's what humans do , don't they storm? Compromise till it
fits the picture they are most attracted to?
-Sincerely, your Uncle Crowslayer ( anyone read C.S. Lewis? )
