Look, I know what Taoism is. I have a copy of the Tao Te Ching, and it's good stuff, I agree. But my point is that it IS a religion. It's organized, it has it's main teaching (the Tao Te Ching). Just because it isn't as structured as the Catholic church doesn't make it any less of a religion, and in my opinion Tao is basically the same thing that Jesus was teaching his disciples (and indeed it might have been-during the missing years of his life in the Bible it is believed that he traveled to W Asia and studied with the Buddhas).

Now, to say that your belief (Tao) teachings the true righteous path while deriding Christianity.... you're walking a very thin line.

Not every end is a goal. The end of a melody is not its goal; however, if the melody has not reached its end, it would also not have reached its goal. A parable.
