34. Well I make a distinction between spiritual beliefs and religion.

Religion has always been perverted as soon as the master has gone.
In the case of Christianity it stayed true to the core beliefs longer than most of them do.
But it too had to be compromised in order to exist in the world it was founded in.
For instance after Jesus was killed the disciples adopted communism...all things held in common, and goods were distributed according to need...well that had to change in the Roman world, and it did...and when changed enough it became the official religion of Rome.

So I don't see religion as we know it today as having anything to do with spirituality...and in fact in many cases it flies in the face of spiritual beliefs.

But the one thing our biscuits have in common is flower....no flower no biscuits.
