What a great way to end the first month of 2002. This past Friday
night I was out chillin' at the Miami Bayside with my friends
Liza, Brian and Sarah. We danced, drank daquiries and enjoyed
the beautiful night air. This night around, Sarah and I had ourselves
is looking to be more and more interesting. My ex girlfriend is
flying down from London to spend some time with me and see Miami
for the first time. After she leaves, then my dance partners from
Toronto will be flying down to see Miami and get loose for their
break from classes. I'll definately have some more pics once they
for CK's Weekly Thought:
I have recently been discussing with my peers the subject of religion.
(ooooh! Very controversial subject) I was brought up as a Christian
in a Christian home with Christian parents. But also being from
a West Indian background, I have been to Hindu functions and Islamic
functions. So you can say I've been to the majority of the major
religions out there.
myself a spiritual person. I pray almost everynight and I believe
that I have had a number of "religious" experiences.
One of my questions is: "Why is it that Christianity is divided
into so many different parts?" From one book, you have Christianity,
Catholicism, Pentecostal, Baptist, Presbyterian, Anglican, Jehovah's
Witnesses and so on and so on.
That is like
reading the original book of "Star Wars" and seeing
100 different versions of the movie by 100 different directors.
Or reading Shakespeare and seeing Romeo and Juliet today. Is it
much different than the original script? Have scenes or important
details been taken away or have other things been put in?
So who do
we really believe? I know that the Bible was written by MAN. Yes,
we know that. But was MAN not influenced by GOD. (or some higher
being?) Can we really be that ignorant to think that we all came
from one single cell? How did that cell get here? We have not
found any other life outside our galaxy as of yet, but who else
is out there to tell us? NASA scientists think that they have
found ice on Mars. (there are only 2 planets in our solar system
that can have life exist on them -- that being Mars and Earth)
If there IS ice on Mars, (ice being water - water being the start
of creation of life) then could there be an answer there that
would help us know more about how we got here and if there is
a Higher Being looking out for us?
believe there is "someone" up there. But I don't believe
its the marketable image that we are shown all the time. Every
culture has their own "higher being(s)" and they should
be left to worship thier own. Other cultures shouldn't be pushing
their religions on others. If every culture believes that they
have their own way of reaching an enlightened state, then let
them do it their way. Other cultures are NOT supposed to snub
the other cultures that do not respect one's religious beliefs.
I guess most of you reading this may think I'm kinda drunk or
high or something, but I assure you, I was just thinking.
All the best,
