    I'm pretty sure that there have been several atheist or agnostic presidents. It just wasn't to their advantage to let it be known. Most intelligent people question the validity of the bible and the "God" concept.

    Pretty sure we've also had several incarnations of Satan, as well.

    I'd also like to point out that we are all facets of God experiencing itself subjectively.

    I just can't see Satan, if he were real, driving the short bus. My religion consists of two parts: 1. Nobody really knows if there is a God. 2. Everyone should try to be kind to each other. Number 1 doesn't matter as long as we accomplish number 2.

    I'm an Advaitin. Probably one of the few white Advaita Hindu people you'll "meet." I also practice Shamanism, which are not at all mutually exclusive.

    "Already the Devil knows, because who do you think the Devil is?"

    God and the Devil are, as well, you, and the same entity.

    kind of ironic that most religions claim this yet humans have waged religious wars for thousands of years.

    I think anyone who is "uncomfortable" with the Christian concept of God should read the Bhagavad Gita and/or the Upanishads and explore Advaita or Vishishtadvaita. I believe that to be the most accurate concept of what all this is.

    "Advaita Vedanta (IAST, Advaita Vedānta; Sanskrit: अद्वैत वेदान्त, literally, not-two) is a school of Hindu philosophy and religious practice, and one of the classic Indian paths to spiritual realization.[1] The term Advaitarefers to its idea that the soul (true Self, Atman) is the same as the highest metaphysical Reality (Brahman). The followers of this school are known as Advaita Vedantins, or just Advaitins,[2]and they seek spiritual liberationthrough acquiring vidyā (knowledge)[3]of one's true identity as Atman, and the identity of Atman and Brahman.[4][5][6]"

    Brahman is the metaphysical fabric of the Universe and all dimensions, or "God." Your soul is God. Your mind is composed of your Soul, your Ego (which you must relinquish to identify with your Soul), and your Biology.

    Exactly. I, personally, use Ayahuasca and am growing mushrooms. I use these as Sacraments.

    "Saṃsāra is a Sanskrit word that means "wandering" or "world", with the connotation of cyclic, circuitous change.[1][2] It also refers to the theory of rebirth and "cyclicality of all life, matter, existence", a fundamental assumption of all Indian religions.[2][3]Saṃsāra is sometimes referred to with terms or phrases such as transmigration, karmic cycle, reincarnation, and "cycle of aimless drifting, wandering or mundane existence".[2][4]"

    "
    mo·ksha
    ˈmōkSHə/
    noun
    1. (in Hinduism and Jainism) release from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma.
      • the transcendent state attained as a result of being released from the cycle of rebirth."

    Nirvana and Moksha are interchangeable, though Buddhists--who are more practical, and tend to ignore the idea of the soul and focus on ascension in terms of growth and knowledge pf the Self in this life and are not concerned with literal reincarnation so much as the constant changing of the "Now"--tend to be more associated with Nirvana, whereas Hinduism is associated with Moksha more often.

    Lebanon bologna is the King of Cold Cuts. Fuck salami, fuck prosciutto, fuck pastrami. No one can NOT like Lebanon bologna. The only thing on par with Lebanon bologna is homemade deer bologna.
