I have rights under the Optimus Prime act of the 1986 Intergalactic Rights, section 17.99
Which is better, To be told that your every action from birth until death has been written down and nothing you do can change it and that the person your to be may never be anything else. They if your evil you will be punished and rewarded for being good but that you have no power over which path you'll follow.
Or that you may learn and grow from actions all your own. That you control the path you take and the simplicity of being good or evil does not apply to you. That your actions are good or evil and that you are judged according to the weight of the eternal scale you place the greater number of deeds upon. That your destiny is unknown but directed towards your end goal.
That is how i see religion, Iv made a chose to follow a path that gives me the freedom to chose my destiny and forge my future my way. Mt path refuses even the will of the gods and demands my future be upon my own to shoulders.
I follow a collection of practiced from different religions as varied as Buddhism to satanism. Each adds towards the great goal of my personal practice for personal peace and power over what effects my life.
