the language of faith
many people never catch on to this idea. language is not about words--it's about communication. it includes all those things you do, too.
now one thing we all do is believe. nobody is omniscient. we all have gaps in our understanding of how the world works. we fill those gaps with assumptions; that is, my friend, a belief system. that's right, you have a belief system, i have a belief system, we all have faith, in something.
the way i express my beliefs is my religion. that is the language of faith. so you see, there can be no absolute 'way' to please our gods. religion, like myth and science, is who and what we are.
