I am a practitioner of Zen meditation, and I advocate its principles and ethics. Zen has no belief system, worships no deities, has no scriptures, and has no rituals except meditation. Zen is a pathway to inner knowledge and the discovery of one's self-nature.

Brother Eduardo: Absolutely spot on, what you have just written to me.
You will do well to expand on these comments from time to time on appropriate discussion topics. Very glad to be a friend of yours. Terry.
Greetings, Felch. [omg, what a great name!] What's there to reconcile? Just because all or most of the world's religions pay homage to imaginary deities, doesn't mean there is no such thing as a source of non-physical knowledge and power. Several of the brain labs have quantitatively measured the human conscious mind at about 3.5% to 4% of the whole mind. Do you have any idea what might be in that 96% or so of your mind that you can't consciously access?
Hi Brother Eduardo
Your sentiments, expressed above, are good.
Welcome to this great Nexus meeting place and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.
