World History, Organized religion, Supreme Being
I'll jump right in... I'm interested in the brotherhood. My concern is in whether I believe in a Supreme Being as per the requirements.
I was born Catholic, became a born again Christian... and now my obsession with world history has me thinking differently.
When I started learning about the Sumerians and Mesopotamia along with the timeline of mankind on earth my view towards organized religion changed drastically. Add all the theories and such from Zietgiest and ancient aliens... and I'm even more uncertain about who I am as a species.
I cannot deny the dogma of which my family instilled. I still believe it's better to help a man vs hinder him. Kindness, understanding, humility, integrity, character, truth, justice... These are too ingrained to stray from.
Additionally, I took oceanography classes in college, the birth of mankind coming from the sea has its place, but I still feel something/someone intervened to make us what we are.
That said, I cannot define my belief. Perhaps I haven't the vocabulary to express it, but I'm conflicted wondering if asked, could I say I believe in God, Supreme Being, Aliens,Time Travelers, or anything else. It used to be an easy answer. Now, not so much.
