Once the JW deception became clear . . . I couldn't simply modify Christianity into a new and acceptable religion . . . and believe me I tried.
After a couple of years of riding that merry-go-round, I simply swept my mind clean of all belief based on faith, or traditional writings and concepts . . . a kind of Atheism I suppose.
I was still very much interested in truth however . . . on any matter. I began with the simple building blocks of the physical world as to what they might reveal . . . and so ventured deep into the world of nuclear physics.
To condense . . . current knowledge does not take us beyond the understanding that the physical world is merely energy presenting itself to the five human senses as matter (physical). The physical universe exists simply on acount of two parameters . . . energy, and the spatial environment in which it is expressed.
The implications are very much in the growth stages . . . as I'm now a very cautious adopter. But the interconnective nature of the physical world along with it's simplicity have me leaning toward a kind of pantheistic view . . . that I benefit by a positive contribution to the "whole". The approach finds commonality with the basic teachings of Christ . . . but a lot more evidence and testing of the validity is required before I adopt any belief. I'm very much a work in progress.
