    Taoism? If you more about about taoism, search for Google. Why? Becuase only guests viewed your topic and not provide links about taoism. So search for it.

    Google is your friend, or go to the book store and buy a few books on it.

    I don't think many people here can help you.... like people said, try google and see if there are any informative page.

    And I think there are supposed to be deities in Taoism, my family worships them.

    go down to the library, get a book, you'll get it all

    usually online sources can be confusing when it comes to this i.e. religion/beliefs.

    i know i few things about lao tze. Apparently he is still alive, somehow, and legend has it that he was born with a beard i.e. making him wise. I also seem to remember that Taoism is related to Daoism, and that Buddhism has something to do with it. All of those religions came after each other, pretty much like Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
