Honestly, anyone that tells you they KNOW exactly what's going on and what the meaning of life is, will be asking this exact same question when they get to the afterlife. Even myself...I don't claim to have answers to anything. On that note, I'm reminded of an email I got a several years ago in the early days of Web 2.0, when I was just beginning to break away from my Christian upbringing and I was starting to study pagan religions. I had written a blogger(or whatever blogs were called back in the stone-age of the web) mentioning that I was a young Christian who was trying to soak up all he could about other beliefs, and I distinctly remember mentioning how I enjoyed reading his blog and that while I didn't believe what he did, I respected him. I got a reply a few days later that said something I don't think I'll ever forget...it's helped shape the way I have viewed proselytizing ever since. He said to me, "I'm not looking to convert anyone to my beliefs; I'm not here to tell you that my way is the only way, or even a good way. My way is unique to me, and it would be incredibly arrogant of me to think that it would work for you too. All I can do is tell you where I stepped in dog crap in the yard; that doesn't mean that there aren't much easier ways around all of it that I found. I'm just here to share my experiences, and if you've gotten something out of all of this, then I've accomplished my goals."
