Question 28

1. What do you believe happens to us when we die?

B. What religion were you raised? Do you still practice that religion? If not, what do you consider yourself to be now?

5e. What is your dream car?

1) I had an acquaintance/friend--really cool Air Force guy (HUGE crush)--who was raised without religion, and he put it to me this way...

What were you before you were born?

He thinks we just go back to that, and that death is natural and unavoidable, and that it shouldn't be a cause for concern.

(I wish I'd told him I'd had a million-year crush on him BEFORE he married... *sob* Ok, whatever, what's next?)

B) I was raised with no religion, no discussion of god or gods or Jesus or denominations or anything. But, eventually, we moved to a religious area, where all the "cool" kids were church-members, and I became a truly devout Catholic. When I moved away from that church several years later, I went back to having no religion. It feels natural to me. So if you want religious kids, start 'em young!

5e) Any car that is driven by someone else. ;)

These questions aren't getting easier.

1. Reincarnation, that is my hope.

B. Roman Catholic. Hell no. Moral.

5e. My jeep wrangler. I wanted one for 15 years before I got it. 6 years later I still love it. It is not however the wife's favorite vehicle.

1) Not sure. I'm thinking reincarnation w/ a karma twist, but really- who's NOT guessing the answer to this one?

B) I was raised Catholic. Baptized, 1st communion, confirmation, Catholic grade school, the whole shebang. I am now a proud Pagan/Wiccan/Humanist. Was married by a Pagan Priestess to a wonderful man who was raised religionless.

5e) yellow convertible 1969 VW Carmen-Ghia in mint condition.

1. Nothing - lights out, thank you for playing. Ok, then we decompose naturally (unless we're cremated.)

B. Atheist. Only went to church twice for non-wedding/funeral reasons. Once was when we were in Malaysia and my dad's father died suddenly of a heart attack. The second was Xmas day in Wales when my Nan wanted to take us to her church (which was just recently closed after having been used since the 15th century!)

5e - A Honda Odessey minivan with all the bells and whistles. I have realistic dreams.

1. We go Home. Exactly what that means cannot be comprehended by us at this point in time.

2. Methodist. Yes. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my faith; it keeps me centered and from spinning out of control. When I look back at my life and see the times that things have gone awry; it's because I've drifted. I'm not talking about times when I didn't get what I want; I'm talking about when I personally have made poor decisions and have let life get me down.

5e. Something paid for that runs well. If that happens to be a Lexus SC 430, well...whom am I to complaint?

1. For myself, I believe I'm going to Heaven. I hope everyone else is too, but as it has been pointed out, you can't prove anything. Wherever I go, I don't want my physical shell to be cremated. I may be dead, but the idea of burning up creeps the heck outta me. Knowing that I've just posted this out loud, I'll prolly die in a housefire.

B. Christian. Yes. Gorgeous.

5e. Something with a chaffeur (I have no driver's license). Otherwise, something classic and convertible or a private jet.

1. I agree with Higgy

B. I went to a Methodist church for a few years, until my parents stopped, and nothing thereafter. The Mrs. is a Quaker (Religious Society of Friends) and I've attended some Meetings, but as a friend says I am 'untroubled by religion'.

5e. like Kaf, I don't drive so whatever someone else is willing to take care of is fine with me!

(I also like to copy off of other bloggers papers...)

1. I believe in reincarnation. I believe our souls continue to come back until we learn all we need to and then we go somewhere else. No clue where ... I'm not too worried about it, though.

B. I was raised Roman Catholic. I have no idea what religion I would fall into these days. I believe in the power of the universe, in the power of positive thought, in kindness, honesty, integriy and compassion ... and LAUGHTER! My religion is love. :) Ha!

5e. A 1973 Scout II

1. What? I'm going yo die one day? Thanks alot. That is one reality I just did not need to deal with this week.

B. My mother was raised in the Lutheran church. My father and his family were Presbyterian. But as a military family, we moved alot and always seemed to end up in churches that were friendly, comfortable and had a groovy, family type vibe. This included Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Epsicopal. Mostly, I stick with the Evangelic Luthern Church in Amercia these days. No, it's not that kind of Evangelical. Think Garrison Keillor, laid back Norewgian farmers and liberal politicians. I do enjoy the high church elements . . . it's Catholic Lite.

5e. I really love my current car, a Honda Element. While it is not the most luxurious, fastest or pwerful vehicle out there, it is fund to drive, useful and makes me happy. Yes, my car makes me happy.

Boo enjoys high church elements and his Honda Element. Your basical elemental-type guy.

1. I don't know but I'll find out eventually.

2. I was raised sort of Presbyterian. Buddism actually suits me better. I think it's a practical religion.

3. I'm lucky enough to have my dream car already!

1. I believe we go round again, catch a ride on a new life, if you will. If everything else operates in cycles, and if Newton was correct and matter and energy are never lost, just changed into each other, than it seems impossible to me that the soul should go away forever. I have too many "memories" that don't fit this life to not have existed before.

B. I was raised Presbyterian. I still believe in Robert's Rules of Order and being polite and taking responsibility and not shoving your religion into someone else's life. But no, I don't much believe in religion now. I think religions are more trouble than they're worth. Faith, on the other hand, that's a different question entirely...

5e. A decently priced, clean, safe and efficient subway system. But my Volvo S60 works just fine for me right now.

1. Worm food. The same as every other living creature.

B1. Catholic.
b2. No way.
b3. Something along the lines of an Agnostic Sikh Buddhist.

3. Camaro Z28
(I am from Jersey after all!)

1. What Higgy & Leetie said. That's all she wrote, but yes...reincarnation is not totally and completely out of the question.

B. Jewish. No, and I never did (practice it). My parents (especially my father) were not religious when we were kids, though they did send us to Hebrew school and we had bar/bat mitzvahs.

Interestingly, my father's mother's father was a rabbi in Greenwich Village while his father was from a very unreligious Jewish Socialist family.

Since my parents moved out West they've been much more involved in temple.

5e. dream car? Never had one, never cared that much about cars.

I love my Subaru Forester but I like the look of the Lexus 330.

1) I'm smart enough to know what I don't know and henceforth keep my mouth shut.

B) Roamin' Catholick. Amen. It's great. I know it doesn't seem like it to many people, but to me it's the simplest form of faith and worship.

5q) a thorough national transit system, with small pod-cars that can break away for temporary individual use.

Now that I think about it, my ideal car would be my current car only it would run on water.

Bis.. you want one of those Jetson's briefcase cars? Come to think of it, that would be really cool.

I had a vision the other day of plastic bubble cars that hover a few inches off the ground and are see through all around. You could hover out over the ocean (which is where I was when I thought of it) and because they are made of this unbelievably strong recycled plastic-like-compound, you can bump into other cars with no damage to you or the car. And they run on solar energy. The idea made me very happy.

At 11:22 PM , Blogger Kafaleni said...

Yeah, but if they're see-through, you can't go anywhere pantsless. Or do much more than make out in the backseat

unless you're an exhibitionist. :)

which I'm not. :(

1. Afterlife, and all the bells and whistles. See ya in heaven.

B. Roman Catholic. You betcha. I consider myself now to be still trying, and getting great help and support every step.

5e. 1957 hardtop T-bird. However, I am a cheapo when it comes to cars - we've only bought 3 in 16 years of marriage, and all three are still going (though my brother now drives our Corolla).
