    Religions were invented out of necessity to control the masses. Without it we could not exist. People must have meaning to live, to obey laws, to be civil to each other. Fairy tales make children dream, so do religious stories. I see nothing but good in making people feel important and needed. I don't have a religion, but I am old enough not to need one to love myself and others. I do think we are need out faiths and non faiths.

    Dear Stardust Pilgrim: I am new to Beliefnet Forums (and when I tried to read the Terms of Use an ad popped up), so I don't know if it's appropriate to make the following invitation, but here goes: My publisher, SOPHIA PERENNIS, has a new website dedicated to the Traditionalist School -- Rene Guenon, Ananda Coomaraswamy, Frithjof Schuon and writers influenced by them -- and includes "discussion-streams" on the following topics: General Discussion: What is "Traditionalism", and Where is It Headed? Neglected Traditions Traditionalism and Christianity Traditionalism and Eschatology Traditionalism and Folklore Traditionalism and Globalism Traditionalism and Interfaith Traditionalism and Islam Traditionalism and Psychology Traditionalism and Spiritual Ecology Traditionalism and Spiritual Romance I'd like to invite you to join in any of these conversations you choose. You'll be surrounded by ads for our books but you can ignore these; like the admen say, there's "no obligation". Sincerely, Chaerles Upton
