Surely it is my choice to believe in whatever I want to believe in.
My religion as an accumulation of what has been said to me through
meditation and conversation. I still don't known whether or not I
call myself a Christian, since I believe that there is wisdom in the
Islamic Koran and the Buddhist Canons. At this point in time, I would
simply call myself a theist (meaning a believer in the existence of an

I believe that their is a grain of truth to all religions, but, as I
have told you, theist morality is inherently superior to atheist
morality, so I would prefer to be a follower of any religion to no
religion at all.

We can see evidence for a creator all around us. More specifically,
we can see a role for a creator at the beginning of time (where God
created the Big Bang) and at the end of time (where that end result of
evolution will result in an entity which is God-like). It is true
that my God is a smaller and less powerful God than the God of most
religions. I have come to believe in what I believe in through
meditation and conversation.
