I am Catholic myself, but I am interested in what most of you are going to say.

What is defined as "religious?"  I view religion as an organized group of people with a overall agreement on a diety.  This can be both good and bad.  We have seen different religions do both good and bad over time.

Just to keep clear what each of the choices mean, here is what I was thinking when I made them:


Religious: a member of an established organized religion,

Spiritual: believing in a supreme being, something greater than ourselves, etc. but not a member of an organized religion.

Agnostic: no viewpoint on the matter

Athiest: actively believe that there is no supreme being or something greater than ourselves.

Religion is nothing more than a cult with alot people believing the same thing. Whether that thing that is believed is true or not is not determined on how many people actually believe in the thing being true but more so how many people can be duped into believing that if they believe that they may receive more money for believing.

The real question is this how many religions of the world would still exist if the alure of money was not attached to the religion?

If people did not have that little devil on their shoulder saying "Just say this and you might get some money." Would people still believe?

Religions that surround the intake of money through forcing people to believe either through fear or laws meant to make the person fearful and pay are really not religions...not even beliefs to be honest but merely groups of thugs moving around from place to place making people give them money and stuff just because they do not want to have to toil and snare.

So "What does God need with a starship."

In my opinion a belief is something that can be discussed among people without fearing something happening like the Earth breaking into pieces if they don't believe. Belief is also something that can be given freely by someone to help them understand the Universe around them...not how the Universe has placed them...but how to understand the Universe and to coexist with the Universe free of the cross of profit being placed on their backs. A belief is also something does not ask for any money in return for the thought where the only return that is asked is to used such a belief to build a better planet through space exploration and colonization of space so that the creative spirit of humanity can spread across what is.

Here is a Theory of Creation that I wrote a few years ago. It has sound logic because it is based on physics and geometry as well as having a spiritual side to the belief because the belief allows to explore many aspects of the world around you instead of being told how life is without any exception to how you want to believe.

The Genesian Theory is a Socialism Free belief that doesn't ask for money, your first born or that you make a sacrifice upon a cross to keep some perceived demon from showing up to eat your heart.

The Genesian Theory

The big bang was not an expansion of space but an expansion of compressed matter.

This is the theoretical that I have been working as it is relates to gravitons and geometric shapes.

  My theory involves geometric shapes. If we take all of the geometric shapes known to geometry and place then so that their perpendicular surfaces touch, we can see that any straight edged object such a square, triangle or rectangle cannot create time, but can be used as a frame of reference to contain an area of space to analyze. The only geometric shape that does not occupy all of space in the manner of being a straight edged object is the sphere. I drew two circles that were tangent to one another, then I noticed something wonderful happening, time in the shape of an hour glass began to appear at the exact center of  the two points of tangency. I then went even further and drew two more circles of the same diameter along the horizontal plane of tangency. I then shaded in the two non-tangent voids created by the four circles and found that the hour glass of time was complete. Or so I had thought, I then interjected my theory of what time is based not on general notion of specialty but on specifics of reality. Maybe this can be coined as specific relativity, any way let Websters do the coining, my theory on what time is is that time is the measurable distance an atom or atoms travel within a medium based upon the energetic properties of the atom or atoms contained within the medium and how the energetic properties of the atom or atoms exert a force against the medium while at the same time the energetic properties of the medium exerting a force back upon the atom or atom(s) within the same medium. In short time is a measurable distance that an energetic body travels based upon it's exertion of force upon another energetic body and how the two interactions create a distance of measurable travel between theirself.

Next I added a graviton into the circle and assumed that when two or more gravitons are equal in diameter as well as gravitational attraction that they would attract to each other. I then started adding in other gravitons of the same diameter as well as gravitational attraction and realized that when you have at least four graviton's that are tangent to one another they form a single unit of two dimensional time. I then added two more circles into the geomatrix construct and realized that when you have six tangent circles that represent gravitons that they form a non-tangent void in the center of their tangencies. Next came the fun part, I added that when six tangent spheres are attracted to one another and form a tangent geomatrix construct in space that they will compress the atoms within the non-tangent void. This means that any attempt by the atoms to escape while being compresses in the geomatrix construct is blocked on all tangent sides. Now comes the really fun part. The initial two circles that are tangent to each other at one point will have the greatest amount of compression at their tangency. This means that at their exact center of tangency is where the center of a galaxy would theoretically begin "Let there be light". This would only be possible if all six gravitons were attracted to one another at the exact same point of interest between their gravitational attraction in order to contain the atoms in a localized space. The center of  the geomatrix construct at the point of central tangency between the initial two circles would compress the atoms in space to the point of causing the atoms to occupy  the same space as one another thus causing an extreme amount of energetic release that would travel at faster then light speed velocities. As this energetic wave or released energy traveled out at faster then the speed of light, the atoms that were the closest to the central tangency point of creation but were outside of the central point of tangency or the point at which the gravitons became non-tangent would be forced outward away from the central point of creation.

This is the point at which a galaxy would be at it's most chaotic

Now since all of the gravitons are tangent at this point, the extreme release of energy at the central point of creation would force the atoms into the other non-central point's of creation, or the remaining fourteen points of tangency. As this energy begin to build mass inside of the non-tangent void due to the compression of the atoms in the void creating more gravitational energies, the six gravitons would begin to be repelled or pushed away because of the increase of mass being created in the non-tangent void. The newly created mass would exert more force on the gravitons then the gravitons would be able to exert on each other through their gravitational attraction and would begin to lose their ability to form the geomatrix construct. As the gravitons are forced farther apart they will pull some of the matter with them from the non-tangent void as a result of the release of energy occupying the space left behind by the graviton. Any matter that was not compressed into suns or other objects that would over time evolve into planets and other celestial objects would be what is called dark matter, or the the gravitational energy left behind during the initial creation that was pressed against the circumference of the six tangent gravitons.

A bullfrog with a light in its belly is nothing more than a glutton looking to shine otherwise.

I believe in one God, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Each man must chose to accept or reject God. Religion is a set of rules man has layered on top of God. Jesus fullfilled the law and now we are under grace, not law.

I don't believe in the no-win scenario.

Agnostic atheist. They are two separate things. Agnosticism and gnosticism have to do with knowledge of God, atheism and theism have to do with belief in God. I don't know if God exists (agnostic) so I don't believe in God (atheist).

Spiritual is just a b.s. term moderate religious people use to avoid being lumped in with the fundamentalists.

In the Technical Manual for the TOS ship--for the movie, perhaps--they included a Chapel on Deck 7.  It could be interfaith or interdenominational, but its availiability for meditation and other spiritual occasions seems comforting.

I hope that other Chapels will be included on other Starfleet vessels or that various empty suites onboard--say, on the VIP levels--could be retrofitted, to meet the needs of the crews and visitors.

I've always appreciated this. And of course, there was a wedding in TOS too.
