DeputyDog- When I look at nature I see a balance, how would you know what "good" is if you never new it's oppersite??? I respect the natural order- I was born from this earth and one day I will die and return to it. Fear is a method of control and it is one that many religious leaders have used to there own advantage. Healthy fear can keep you safe from physical harm in nature baut the fear of man (religious leaders) will only keep you safe from learning that they are full of crap and want to control you to feed their own greed!
Faith may be gift but blind faith can be distructive- some of us need a REASON to believe and will question the others motives/facts before placing their trust or faith in them!
