Huh. Via utforsker. Equally offensive to mainstream Monotheists and Pagans. Yet possessed of a very discomfiting bit of truth. Thoughts, anyone?

Also, today is the 7-year anniversary of my first day working at this organization. Why does this make me queasy?

Some people get motion-sick; I get inertia-sick.

Faith (and belief) and religion aren't synonymous--and in the period city_of_dis was talking about, they weren't even in the same neighorhood.

Indeed. Emphasis on "right belief" as opposed to "right practice" is a fairly recent development. It didn't matter so much what you believed about the gods, so long as you burned the right bits of the cow and did the right chant. Even early creeds tended to be more like "O Dionysus, you make the vines abundant!" or "Yahweh, you brought us out of the two Egypts!" not "There is no God but God!" or "...And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father before all ages."

I especially like the Roman's "legal contract" style of prayer.
