To me, and maybe only me, I can see all "faiths" as valid as long as they give peace and well-being to those whose eyes are still firmly stuck in the theory of human superiority. To me, ther is a "GOD", but it is a GOD of the physical sciences and of the UNIVERSE, the "GIGANTIC OMNIPRESENT DILATION", or G.smallest and shortest O.D. Older and less observant people still call it "THE BIG BANG", save that the "BANG" is still going on and the "dilation" is still accelerating. Everything is part of that GOD, and a part of GOD is inside me, you, the rocks, trees, dirt, worms, eagles, smallest and shortest-lived particle-waves to the largest galaxies, galactic clusters, and the voids between. No matter the faith, it is there. Some people have turned away from that thought, and see their "God" (note capitalization) as exclusive. They tend toward their fundament-alist religious thought. (Note definitions of "fundament"!)
I know from all those faiths what is good, and not-so-good. I know that it is not my right to tell another who to love, or why the color of a coffee cup means nothing when there are homeless, hungry, lonely, and in need of counseling. I know that I have my social, financial, and ethical limits. So what is it about people proclaiming their faith, yet living it not? I don't have to worry about that because I know what is truly right, and wrong. Yet, it is a truly lonely existence, and I hope to find other who can understand my view of the Infinite. I know that they are out there, and one day, we might meet.
