    Jun 9 2011: I personally do prefer reading stories...there's lots of them out there....the bible was the first one I introduced..when I was 15 I decided that I wanted to understand where the values of religion came from...but I stopped reading after the Fall of Eden...I think that the beautiful story told by Ishmael (the gorilla with mind power) explained the fall of eden as the turn to agriculture in our society...consumption is not the answer...and if you can define yourself as a consumer...then you may want to look back at your life and your choices and decide what ethical and moral choices you made that apparantly have no affect on anyone..including the starving, dying and abused....I prefer to think that when I dream at night, or make a wish that I always vibrate a positive energy that pushes out to the universe...it's not that nothing I do matters...it's everything I do matters....and that my friends...is FACT!!!!
