I am fairly certain the original Baptiser was not a direwolf though he did wear a hairy coat.

Funny spruce. The Catholic church my parents belonged to when I was born refused to baptise me because they didn't attend frequently enough. Needless to say they gave up being Catholic (and subsequently spanking their children). To this day I remain unbaptised and unspanked.

Read my posts with the following stupid accent: a peninsula in the North Atlantic
I threw myself in the river
To try to put myself away
A man jumped in and saved me
And spoiled a perfect day

He said God would forgive me
If I repented of my sin
Then he said I must be baptised
And he threw me in again

Oh, I was born to be unlucky
From my shoulders to my shoes
I guess I must be stuck with my
Unlucky blues....

(This is from memory. Early '80s. I've probably messed up the words a bit. But I'd bet $ that spruce is familiar with the song.)

We Presbys baptise infants, sort of like Catholics do. But my sister married a Baptist, who only believe in adult baptism. She has two boys, about 6 years apart. Well, when the first decided to get baptised, his younger brother wanted too as well, but my sister said, "no, it's his day" (the older brother). Now none of us can get the younger one baptised, even though he's a believer.

Your sister was right, though.

If what humanity has can be called a soul, religion is anathema to that.

It's the first step to extraordination, just like the X-folk. But everyone has to start somewhere.

What powers were you hoping for?

The power to say ''I know you've been doing it this way for the past 50 years, but how about we try this way instead'' and for the PCC to be totally on board with that.

Everywhars I go the bad peoples say the same thing about my flag.

Everything spruce believes is beautiful and true, even about body hair, but everyone wants to cut off every beautiful thing, like it was an idol or sumthin'. They saiz, you "horrible"!

Just look at the prejudices I is faced with, even on nolemon's site:

Religion is created by human imagination.
There is no soul, but there is an awareness of existence.
People mistake this self-awareness as a separate soul, rather than self-awareness. That is the existence of a self.

Self-awareness is the becoming aware that, the being can remember things from a past and can project assumptions on the future.
The statistical probability that the sun, moon, planets and even stars will do the same things at the same time in a fairly set pattern was the start of humanity.

Astrology and elementals, earth powers, air spirits, small whirlwinds. All this natural phenomena that were given supernatural interpretations where there before larger gods and religions were created from them.

Then people intellectualise the little gods and demons, heath spirits etc. and turned it into a political power for the priestly class and empires like Darius the first and many others saw the political power of state controlled religions and they took off.

Look at sacrifice, bribing the phenomena of nature not to flood the world or to flood the nile valley. Human sacrifice, the monoans did it, the hebrews did it, the celts did it. Here Nature, have my first baby, to stop this swarm of locusts. The mrs can always have more babies.

It's all so bazaar, but you can see where they were and the world of ingnorance they were trapped in.
