    I am not a particularly religious person, but the religion that appeals most to me is Buddhism. It's such a peaceful way of life that doesn't depend on material possessions, it's very balanced and 'pure'.

    Yes, it is a very peaceful belief system, and one that incorporates respect for all living beings. That's one of the things I find most attractive about it.

    As I said though, I don't know much about it at all.

    er...

    If you become a Buddhist can I have you Ipod nano then :D


    In RE last year following a lesson on Genesis and the garden on Eden they asked the children to draw a picture of the creation of the Earth.

    Thomas did the most spectacular picture of the Big Bang , to be fair the teacher ticked it and gave him an A+

    As an Atheist I would never dream of passing my beliefs onto my children they have to find their own way, Thomas is becoming more Atheist as time goes on as that seems to be the way his mind works, Matthew belives in God and if he asks us what we believe then we try and tell him that different people believe different things and its the one choice in life that is very personal to the individual, we will not be drawn by his insistant askings of what we believe as I don't want it to influence him.

    I love Thomas' thinking and yes, you can have my iPod nano... I don't have an iPod nano but that's besides the point

    That's the point isn't it? Allowing children to find their way, with your safe guidance. If children are taught to be kind, respectful of themselves as well as others, thoughtful of another's feelings, productive... then the job of the parent is well done.

    That is very cool Dawn. I think everyone should be able to do things like that.

    As I've stated sooo many times, I think all of the religions fit together to make one....just haven't figured out quite how yet.....

    And it is a peaceful religion. The media portraying them all as lunatics and suicide bombers is like having Jerry Falwell and Oral Roberts be THE only face of Christianity

    Johnie, our "thoughts" bump into one another. I believe (and will say this imperfectly and incompletely) that our current "religions" and fractured belief systems are a result of our segregating bits of the universe into small boxes. Once we tore asunder the natural order of things in an attempt to explain (and what we cannot explain we dismiss or relegate to magical belief or religion) we did lasting (hopefully not permanent) damage to the universe and its people.

    Won't go on here, from that point of view, but it feels like we are in the same thinking patterns if only in a general sense.

    I believe Steven is destined for Paganism.

    Which would have my blessing as it would be his choice.
