Reality is just an illusion.
I like the old saying, Take what you will and leave the rest. Also, just because their dead, don't make them right. If I read something and it inspires me to become a better person and treat others the same way, than it's a good thing. I have been told by people with different faiths that I have no rules in my beliefs. I don't have any consequences therefore I can do what I want as a pagan and I don't care. Of course, this is so far from the truth. Most religions believe that when you die you go to hell or pay for you sins then. I believe, as a pagan, I am responsible now. This inclines me to act as a good person always instead of picking and choosing when it's good for my conscience. I can send myself on a guilt trip better than the Universe any day. :) Rules and structures are something that we inflict on ourselves. We change them as we go based on how we live and learn. I think it is all an individuals choice on how they interpret rules and ethics, but on the flip side of that, what is good for one, is not always good for another. Just my thoughts.
