This is a particularly sensitive topic I know. However it is also a great source of debate. Any attempt to argue it as fact is simply proof of this fact. In this particular instance I simply point out my particular views and offer them to you as something to think about. Do not take it personally or as an assault on your beliefs. First and foremost I believe in something greater than myself. The particular scope of this is unclear, it may be my connection to the world or the universe it may be a deity but if that is the case it's unlikely to be any established religion. I view organized religion as a particularly dangerous idea given it's bloody history and record of falsehoods. If there was a "truth" to religion it would be a higher power of some kind, and if any such religion had direct contact with such a power there would be no debate as to which religion is "the right one". The way I see it is that if there is a deity, then it's mind is so superior to own own we can not fathom its thought process of what it would want us to do and it would be unrealistic for us to spend our lives fighting our inner nature. The flaws in a creation directly reflect the flaws of the creator and a flawed deity can not be all powerful, all knowing, perfect everything. If ever there was a deity it has likely left us, does not care, has died, or is otherwise not worthy of worship on the basis of how much suffering it would supposedly inflict upon us through "mother nature" or other earthly instances of extreme natural destruction. Additionally any deity that would condemn you to an eternity of suffering for a century or two of sin or not obeying it as otherwise instructed via organized religion is certainly not worthy of praise or worship, if anything it should be reviled as an evil deity.
If there is indeed more than one such deity, why then has not one become the most powerful? Why is there no direct and definitive proof of such an all powerful being? Do not say to simply look around and everything is proof. I am talking about an all powerful making itself a known quantity in such a way there could be absolutely no concept of denial of its existence.
The idea that various deities are actually aliens is an entirely different subject that I'll probably never discuss because this will probably be all the religion I put in this blog.
