Why do you believe what you do?

Not looking to start an argument but I was pondering this ? the other night. History has always been so distorted over the years and many of the original gospels never made it to the new testament creating such a vast contrast of what the church initially was. Seeing this evolution so to speak, how do we truly know what was meant to be in the bible and what was biased at the time therefore is being neglected to be mentioned today? Basically how did you come to conclusion to quote certain passages from the the bible and not others? Why do you choose to believe certain gospels and not others?

FYI-I follow George Carlin's testaments.

  • For angev and cait, could you explain a little more about what the wiccan religion believes? I'm not too familiar with it. If I recall correctly there are several Christian holidays that are originally derived from Pagan holidays. Is the Pagan religion along the same lines as Wicca?

  • Wicca is a modern Pagan religion Magoogie.

  • Thanks anon :33 for clarifying that for me. My son is giving me a history lesson these days and I'd like to be able to have the slightest idea of what the heck he's talking

  • I believe what I believe because there is not enough information to answer my questions. I don't want blanket facts passed from generation to generation just because that's what THEY were told. I want proof. I want proof that the bible was real and not written by a group of drunk men sitting around a fire trying to screw with peoples minds.

    I believe Horus was around long before Jesus and his homies. I think Jesus and his crew stole Horus's story for themselves and today that's what they follow.

    I don't believe in heaven or hell.
