Any Daoist in here?

Religion is probably the biggest divider in world history, but for those that believe in God it is central to our existence. Share your views.

I'm very interested about the Tao, also. I know that some people take it as a religion, but atleast for me it isn't anything like that. There's no God or guidelines/orders in Tao, nor there is good/evil or right/wrong. Basically Tao is nothing, but then again it's everything. Very difficult to explain...

Dude Im only so so interested in any religion. Infact alot of cultural stuff IMO is just plain silly. Im a modernist with preferences.. when I find a better way to live or a like something then I'll dive into it. But Im not 1 of those hokey people that go around eating things up word for word and just doing it without questioning it's effectiveness or purpose. Most of cultural aspects like chanting, voodoo, and hokey pokey stuff in general are the primitive mind's failure not to know any better :lol:..

I refer to the book of Tao as "Warrior Meditations"
