You said: "So you think that reality is limited to only what we can see and touch and understand.(?)"

Reality refers to the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to how they could possibly exist.

You said: "I have never read the bible."

Why not? You should. The more time I spent reading the bible – the more I started seeing that things didn’t add up and there are many, many things written in that book that no moral human being could be okay with. For instance:

Leviticus 21:9
A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.

Isaiah 13:15-18
Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.

Ezekiel 9:5-7
“Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.”

So, as we "awaken", its not just the illegitimacy of government and the state that needs to be recognized...its all irrational thinking that needs to be countered.

Those of us who are free of the constraints imposed by dogmas on their ability to think and to process information have a huge responsibility in trying to expose the massive deception of organized religion.

Politics and religion are both elitist philosohys that want to run the world. I will not be ruled by priests, bishops, or scriptures any more than I will be ruled by kings or queens.

And yet, just as the mainstream media calls truthseekers "conspiracy theorists", people who have invested much of there time and money into supernatural mythlogoy, regularly resort to calling non-believers things like asshole.

The story religion tells is incredibly fantastic, yet questioning these fantastic assertions is seen by the religious as being stupid and/or dumb.

I know how to think. Reason and rationality is superior to superstitution and mythlogy.
