The ways of faith around the world.
If you travel around the word, you will find a diversity of faiths and beliefs. Your host has seen hundreds of faiths and paths of belief. In my youth, I quickly found that some seemed strange and unusual because they did not fit within my paradigm. But in my travels, I have found one thing that most of them share. These diverse people, no matter the followings, customs or dogma, have a deep rooted faith in what they believe. And for this... this section of Ancient Pathway exists.
You will find that as you travel though this site and specifically this section, the author (TheAncient) attempts to carry a non-bias attitude. When it comes to faith and belief, it is a very powerful event. As a logical, intelligent human being, it may be difficult for a person to understand that a head of lettuce or plate of pasta could be God to a person. But when you step outside of the situation and take a look, it may be just as hard for another to believe in an all seeing, all powerful force that allows the horrors of the modern world to happen, or the stories of a 100+ year old man that built an ark and had a severe animal fetish.
When you have faith, it is easy to overlook minor things that are simply not, by modern logical minds, possible. The Bible itself is riddled with controversy that, to intelligent beings, seem foolish. But the Christian faith in that book allows them to look past those issues. The same with the pagan followings which believe in otherworldly creatures that dance and frolic about us at all times. Listening to the arguments of these two followings is worthy of a late night television comedy as each side demands proof from the other only to receive the same response from one another ... "have faith!"
