I want to understand religion. I wonder if it is at all possible.
Christianity wants so badly to be differentiated from pagan religions. But why is it that Easter falls on the same pagan celebration of the Sun? To us Catholics -- the Son rises from the dead and brings eternal life. For the pagans -- The Sun rises from darkness and brings spring.
Did our forefathers think we'd never notice the similarities? Is there after all, just one religion? Should pursuit of understanding it lead to my insanity? ;p
Oh well, be one or the other. All I'm sure of is I have Faith, and I suppose that's all that matters.
