China is considered to be a country of no religion.
but,  there are also small groups of religious people here among this vast population.
I found that in southern China, for example, ...


When it comes to religion, I find that most, if not all, religions have:

1)  A belief in a creator of the universe, i.e. God, Allah, Yahweh, Jehovah, Great Spirit, etc.

2)  An ethic of reciprocity or "The Golden Rule", i.e.  "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

3)  A history of human politics and/or customs that are used to seperate themselves from other competing religions and/or the rest of the human population and put clauses on the "Golden Rule"

I have have faith in the first two items, but have abadoned the third - God should never be used as an excuse for human actions.

I agree. I don't think it really matters what religion you believe in. My parents are religious. Christian. And they have this feeling of ease. Live a good, honest life and afterwards the goodness  ...


I have the same feeling!

I have no religions and I believe myself.I think everything I've done by effort,whatever the result is,is enough.I don't believe Gods,but I believe there are indeed some stories of the Gods which can encourage us to achieve.I respect all people who have religions and I hope all of us have a happy life!
Follow your own course, and let people talk.
