    In our quest for perfection, we had an insatiable lust to validate the righteousness within. To become perfect, we must purge ourselves of the flaw that is vanity. And this is a difficult position, because we can't be not human. So, consequently, a large number of divine beings permeating a vast collection of cultures over the years have been vain. And then, we worship one or more of them, instead.

    I refer to Jehovah. The qualities associated with Jehovah are truth, justice, mercy, wisdom, love, knowledge, power, life, holiness and righteousness, among others.

    No, I wouldn't.... Hence the reason that I don't subscribe to any religion/deity.

    Among others? Answering the question in part does not answer the question.

    Besides, IHVH/YHWH/GD/Allah (Actual names of your "God") encompasses all forms of existence including the ones that are socially unacceptable practices.

    You obviously do not wish to spend the time to communicate the deity that you wish to commit your existence to.

    In chaos, one must search for harmony.
    In death one may become one with The Force.

    On what basis do you associate other qualities with Jehovah? (btw, Allah is not YHWH, and muslims will tell you that too. If you're going to call me ignorant, you should probably know what you're saying)

    On the basis that most Abrahamic Monotheistic religions affirm that the One True God is everything all at the same time.

    Lol, Allah is YHWH/IHVH/GD All of them originated out of an Abrahamic Monotheistic understanding.
    Therefore, they are the same thing!
    And just because Muslims affirm that their god is different than the other understandings of the One True God, does not mean that are not ignorant to the understanding that the One True God they speak of is the same origin and the same god.

    Voted "no" but to expand on that, I won't worship anyone or anything since it requires some form of blind obedience. It's for the identical reason why "group-think" is so distasteful for me. I NEED to be able to freely think and act which includes the evaluation of past, present and future.

    Faith is so not for me since the only reliable constant in my life is me.

    Unless you believe this god actually exists, and that this god is knowable, claiming that others are ignorant doesn't make much sense.


    And I really fail to see how having the same historic basis means that they all worship the same god.
    You lose.

    It's a cost-benefit issue. Worship takes time and energy, but being tortured for eternity doesn't sound that great. So in short, in some circumstances, I would be willing to worship something that was pure evil; in others, no I wouldn't worship even a vain creator.
