The way we see religion

In the Greek mythology, there are Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Perseus (half human, half god) and seven immortal wives of Zeus. Here, the gods are solemn without emotions or desires. Lots of people pray at the temples and burn incenses especially in Taoism. Longshan Temple and Xingtian Temple are both efficacious with long history in Taiwan. Due to environmental concerns, Xingtian Temple is not allowed believers to burn incenses and bring flowers or fruits there. In my opinion, they set a good example for others. Another famous worship is Dajia Matsu Pilgrimage. It takes nine days for followers to detour from Taichung city to Chiayi County. Also, Buddhism and Christianity are allowed and wide believed by some people.

People do not see the psychological doctor often when we encounter mental illness; instead, some people would pray to the gods or try some alternative therapies. And that is why temples always receive lots of donations. But the interesting thing is people here do believe freedom of religion. The war or conflict between religions is not gonna happen for us.

As long as you believe, the Gods will be with us in any form of way you think they are.

Different does not mean bad.
