    No.

    Those people you mentioned were working for a higher good to make the world a better place. God may have been working through them, but they and God are of inescapably different natures.

    God is beyond our understanding.

    And as such, it's pointless to argue his existence with others.

    So you concede the possibility that Jesus is not divine in the sense in which god is divine and, thus, not Jesus. Neat.

    Now all we need to do to heal you is to get you a book on source criticism on the Bible.

    Basically I think there's one right and true way to be... In a spiritual sense like our spirits are all the same at the core. Meaning deep down we're all aware of the natural laws....ego is false. Destruction in any way is bad. Creation is good.

    So any behavior that Aids in destroying anything... Someone's spirit, someone's confidence, an animal a bug that's isn't hurting you, a person etc

    Creation is good... Creating happiness, fulfillment, serenity, beauty, hope, love etc

    Ego is false... The only truth is that were all worthy of the above rights. No one deserves them more than anyone else.

    That purity of spirit resides in all of us and those that have been hurt so much that it's no longer visible still deserve love and compassion and someone willing to aid in connecting them with that spirit within.

    Ha that might sound weird but yeah.

    But your rationality is limping. I see it whenever your religion or your country is being criticized.

    For someone whos morality does not extend beyond his own self, you sure do seem to have an issue with other people having theirs. Just saying.

    It's feels pretty sound on my end.

    I go to inappropriate extremes defending my opinions on those two topics occasionally, but I'm comfortable with the reasoning behind my deepest beliefs with regards to those 2 topics.

    I get angry when I feel like others are tying to make me look stupid for the things I believe.

    I believe that everyone else is entitled to not being made fun of for their convictions.

    If you check again, you will see that what I am doing is perfectly in line with the content of my morality, which it would be even if what I am doing were what you think it is.

    Where is the difference between convictions and fixed opinions?

    I'm not sure if that reasoning makes it any better. I mean here I thought your morality takes root in the creation of your own happiness. How is berating other peoples moral codes adding to your happiness?
