Bishop explains religion

I am humbled – because I honestly didn’t think I would so admire the words of a Christian authority figure.

Favorite quotes:

Religion is in the guilt-producing control business.

Every church I know claims that we are the true church….

The idea that the truth of God can be bound in any human system by any human creed by any human book is almost beyond imagination for me…

…all of those [various major religions] are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk in the mystery of God.


John Shelby Spong, retired Episcopal bishop from Newark, N.J.

Being a crazy cat lady in training, I could not help but post this video of a kitty forward-fold. Note how the tail works as a comfy prop 🙂

My favorite quote from the video is about how we spend so much time and effort training our bodies (jogging, exercising, etc.), but we neglect to train what’s probably one of the most important parts of our being, the mind.


I don’t think this research made its way into Nature, or at least I couldn’t find it, but this paper (link opens pdf) seems to report the research mentioned in the video.
