I converted to Islam

I converted to Islam, because when I die I will have 11 virgins serving my needs each day. One for each day of the week and four in reserve, just in case...
Well, who knows if they have weekdays in heaven.
Fabulous. I also keep my Christian belief so I can travel to either Paradise or Hell. Could be adventurous journeys.
There is also something to be said about remaining a Gnostic, believing that there might be something like a spirit world, but so far it has not proven to be so, therefore it remains a questionable issue.
But that is not enough. I have to become a Zen person also, because I like the tranquility of their ways. And just in case, I will enroll as a Hindu, who knows what that will do.
You get my drift, the more the merrier. When one belief option fails when you die, a different and more viable one will replace it, just like changing airplane carriers and riding on the one with the most appealing fare and services.
In other words, humanity with all our present progress, is still as stupid as they were in the Middle Ages when they burned witches of progress and celebrated the act as a cleansing towards the service to an unheard and unseen God. Now we have better technology, but a stake still remains a stake. Just now the disguise of it is perhaps a bit more diffused.

I do not exactly know what the purpose of this post is, it came to me after a midd-day-nap. But what I do know is, that if all religions would find a common denominator, a lot of troubles in this world could be eased.

The common denominator would be: There is spirit in the heavens, so is there on earth.

... and forget the 11 virgins, that is a stupid myth, created long after the Koran was written

Right on!

People have this idea of gods and heavens. I'm not sure why, when they have the self awareness to merely look around them and see beauty in nature (and other people for that matter)

And as for spirituality, that's what love is for!

Hmm, I like that comment Toxic Orange!

I believe in God, that's for sure. But as to whether I belong to a particular religion, I do not. I was raised Catholic, but am not a big believer of all the ritualistic stuff.

I can't say I've read the Koran, only parts of it, but from what I've read it's nothing like the fanatical ravings and violent acts that we've seen in society.
