Sleepwalking my way through life: "I bought a Bible today."



"I bought a Bible today."

There's something soothing about waking up in your bed and seeing the one you love lying beside you.

Even if it was only a ten minute nap.

We had watched Serenity that afternoon. I know, it's shocking that we finally WATCHED a film. But I really wanted to watch it this time, seeing as how this was the movie of one of my favourite tv shows ever. And it lived up to expecations. It even SURPASSED them, which I didn't think possible.

Watch it. NOW.

After the film ended we headed onto the train and went back to my house. Marie was staying for dinner. We got in and spent an hour in my room before dinner was ready. We ate, and it was good. But right after it we headed back up to my room for the remainder of the three hours.

Now many things happened in these three hours. None of which I'm going to mention in detail. But lets say there was a lot of happiness, a lot of fun, and only a tad of crying.

The end.

Hmmm.

I bought a Bible today.

I know, it's like the ultimate form of irony. An athiest reading about God. But I was reading the Weir of Hermiston and it was full of all this religious stuff, and I thought back to the Crucible where they basically lived by the Bible.

So I've decided to take a gander at it. Just to see what it's all about.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not researching for my own beliefs, this is purely analysing. Just because I don't believe in God dosn't mean I can't look into it.

I'd like to believe in God. Some powerful being that sits in the clouds and looks down on this world with a caring and forgiving smile. But no. In my mind God is just the unknown facor in an equation. For example, unanswerable questions. Why are we here? Why is the world the way it is? What happens after we die?

Answer: God.

My theory. God is is the fear of death. People are scared of the "afterlife" so they put God in. Be good and get put into Heaven.

I need to go now. I'll probably read for that matter...
