Some Quote from some Religions above;
In The Efficient Lotus of the heart Dwells Brahmas The Light Of Lights
- Mundaka Upanishad
The Lord Is My Light Whom; Shall I Fear?
Following The Light The Sage Takes Care of All
- Lao Tsu
The Radiance of Buddha Shines Ceaselessly
Give, And It Shall Be Given To You. For Whatever Measure You Deal Out To Cthers, It Will Be Dealt To You In Return.
- The Bible
God is the light of the heavens and the earth. The smile of God's light is like a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp in a globe of glass, the globe of glass as if it were a shining star, lit from a blessed olive tree neither of the East nor of the West, its light nearly luminous even if fire did not touch it. Light upon light!
God guides to this light whomever God will: and God gives people examples;
and God knows all things.
qur'an - 24:35 - al 'nuur - the light
A Boy's Will Is The Will of The Wind.
- Norse Proverb

I'm glad you like it And I am truly happy to meet someone who epitomises what Christianity is supposed to be and not what it has become in most places. And in general just what religion as a whole should be. Too often is it used as a tool to damn the rest of the world, when it is meant to be a tool to help and give strength to those who need it most.
Thank you for you comment.
I've always wanted to learn more about taoism, it always appealed to me from what I know of it.
Yeah, I am very damn saddened to see the bullshit that is often made by the fundamentalist Christians. It pains me even more when I get lumped with them. For living up to the "love one another" part (which incorporates a belief that God judges on character, not belief and another belief that atheists, gays and others of the commonly damned type will not go to Hell), I have often gotten terrible labels such as "traitor to the Christian faith" and "misleading deceiver". It can be saddening but yeah, I still go forward.
You are welcome.
Taoism is interesting and I am learning more of it. One of major reasons I also became a Taoist was because of my own perspective similar to the Yin-Yang and dualist truth of the Tao. Like so, as painful and saddening it is, fundamentalist activity like the damning and condemnation has to happen (good and bad coexisting and all). But I'd like to at least try to lessen the bad and raise the good a bit.
It was the symbol of Buddhism before the Nazi's took it for their symbol, also please notice how its not on its corner. It was once good before it was twisted into something bad.
yes they are equal
But there are some totally startling marvels.
The norse ones I used are either the celtic knots, which cover both the norse and the celtic pantheons and belief's, but the main one is the Hammer of Thor with the twin ravens of Odin above it.
Off topic: Polytheistic religions never cause any problems? I strongly disagree with that statement. >.>; Are you telling me the Roman empire never committed any oppressive acts? Or that China and India have no history of violence?
Well thing is, which religion does the Pentagram belong too? cause I see it as a symbol of fertility and of the elements of fire, earth, water, air, and Metal, though it sometimes has others in place of the 5th one depending on the diagram. And the elements do encompass all things, as does love and fertility because without the continuation of them life would slow to a halt.
Well what I said was the don't cause as many problems as Monotheistic, cause the Roman empire did spend alot of its time as a Monotheistic system, though it was also polytheistic at first. I won't deny that polytheistic religions cause just as many if not more problems at times, but it is the Monotheistic ones which are causing the problems at this current moment in history, and to be honest the level of problems caused now does rank a lot higher than many of the ones done so in the past.
I was referring to this: "Aye I wish they would see this kinda stuff, mind when ya think about it Polytheist religions NEVER really cause problems, but Monotheist religions are the reason why the worlds going to hell. lol."
Care to back up that statement? I don't think it's fair, either, to say that anything a person does wrong is because of their religion. There are cultural and personal factors as well. It wouldn't be right for me to blame China's poor human rights record on Buddhism, even though that's a very common religion in China.
In the past, polytheists were a majority. Now they aren't. Couldn't it just be that monotheists appear to cause more problems because there are more of them?
As for the statement that our problems now are worse than in the past... I don't know what to say other than I don't agree. What critera are you using to "rank" problems? There are issues we face today that we didn't five hundred years ago because the global population was a lot smaller, communication was slower, and there was less contact between cultures. That doesn't make people in the past morally superior to us.
this statement completely contradicts what you said before about the Roman Empire, China and India, in which you implicitly claimed that their respective polytheistic systems of belief were the cause of human suffering and oppression.
"In the past, polytheists were a majority. Now they aren't. Couldn't it just be that monotheists appear to cause more problems because there are more of them?"
Please do not lump together all followers of Abrahamic religions, a very diverse crowd with many different beliefs, and brand us as fanatic suicide bombers. That statement is as hateful and ignorant as the rhetoric of the radical-conservative religious groups--who most of us aren't particularly fond of either. Before you ask me to adjust my worldview, please try to understand it a little better.
take a long hard look at your argument, as well as your world view. i could sit here and spend hours picking the holes in both of them, but i have better things to do.
But, I'm not sure what a few of these are....
Thanks for the fav ^_^
yeah I keep getting asked that... which ones ya unsure of?
Other than those, I'm pretty sure I know what the others are.
The ones either side are just general celtic symbols. The one with the birds on top is the Hammer of Thor, Mjöllnir, the birds are Odins Ravens, Hugin and Munin.
The Tri symbol I think has an older meaning, which is what I was going for... but I can't find it now grrr... and the goat thing is actually an Aborigine symbol I think
Hope that helps xD
Is there any meaning to the fact that yin and yang are in the middle?
I <3 Religion
Balance in all things, both good and evil.
You can't look at a religion and see something pure and good, or pure and evil. It will always have a merging of the two within it. Such is human nature, we are not perfect and neither is anything we can create or comprehend. Only by accepting that can we understand more about ourselves..
Then later I'll write them up in the description too. But knowing which are the most likely to not be known would help alot lol
Yeah it was used by the Nazi's but it was originally a Buddhist symbol ^_^
