"During the FSP Liberty Forum 2007 I had the extreme displeasure of sitting at a table full of "new age christian libertarians" who advocated the "pro-life" position...When I asked them how they reconciled their cognitive dissonance with a woman's exclusive 100 percent right to her body, and what is or isn't in it(penis or fetus), and her right to be left completely alone from looters and parasites(both internal and external)...AND...their ADMISSION TO ME VERBALLY RIGHT THEN AND THERE...that they would "tie a woman up until the child was born"...they just became more vicious, insulting, and disgusting..."

This is why we can't have nice things.

Kevin, I'm not sure how many times I have to say that action plays a critical role.  Looking at your belief system, I'd say it melds perfectly with the idea of law of attraction.  You can call it "positive thinking and action", and it's still the same concept.

No one has suggested abdicating responsibility.  Law of attraction and deliberate creation is about accepting responsibility for what you are putting into the universe, and hopefully constantly improving on it.

I still don't understand why you choose to use the word "god" when describing such beliefs.  Given the typical use of the word, and what it stands to mean to the majority of the population, I find it bewildering that you would attach it to yourself in any way. Albert Einstein often use the word "god" to mean the laws of nature and now many years later it is used by religious folk to as "evidence" to back up their creationist garbage. See Einstein believed in god, see see!

I don't mean this to be confrontational, I simply don't understand and would like to know your thought process behind it. If you would further explain what it is that you actually believe, maybe this thread could die with everyone's acceptance.

I dabbled in agnostic Judaism until I shifted into pantheistic Judaism.  I'm pretty concrete now.
