There seem to be assumptions being made about people's beliefs. So I decided to put the record straight on what I believe.
I'm technically a Roman Catholic but I don't believe the Church truly follows the simple messages given by Christ which was love God and love other people.
So what am I?
Well I believe that Christ was a good man who had suggested a way to live a good life but I have no idea whether or not the was the Son of God. It would be nice to think that there is a God who watches over us and cares about us but that's not in my life experience so if God does exist he's not the nice guy that I was taught he was.
God or the gods are much more fickle than that simplistic 'all loving' view. I'm more inclined to the ancient beliefs that God/the gods too have faults and sometimes play games with human lives for their own amusement or maybe that is the coincidences caused all the interactions that take place everyday between humans and the natural world.
I do believe there is more to existance than we can see. I believe in natural spirits (fairies and sprites if you want to give them a name). I believe that spirits can inhabit special places. I believe that after physical death the human spirit continues to exist in some form but I have no idea what that form is so maybe it's just wishful thinking.
I believe in ghosts either as a sort of spiritual recording (that a place can somehow absorb strong emotions and replay the images when somehow triggered) or as a trapped spirit that needs help to move on to wherever a spirit goes.
These are my basic beliefs. Feel free to discuss and debate them. I will not take offence if you don't agree with me or think I'm delusional. I will try to justify them but sometimes a belief can't be proved as no facts exist to provide concrete evidence.
