What religion are you?
    #1189914 - 01/04/03 11:20 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Alright, I am new to this board so I want to get to know you all a little. What religion are you? If you dont practice a particular religion right now, then what religion would you say believes as you do?

Im not a particular religion, but right now Im a Panentheist thinker. I believe that God is a part of us and we're a part of God.  :cool: Now how about you?

I'm an Adamist, of course. :smile:

I also believe that God is a part of us and we're a part of God.

I don't subscribe to any particular religion, but my beliefs are closest to Buddhism.

I guess im an 'agnostic.' I'm in to Taoism, Zen Buddhism, eastern philosophy, and philosophy in general. The human mind can't even fathom the concept of god, so I dont really subscribe to any dogmatic beliefs. I don't really even like using the term 'God' because there is so many dogmatic connoations to it. I'll go with McKenna and say 'The Other.'

Peace, Trevor  :grin:

Hi! Welcome to the Shroomery and SPS! :smile:

Please read the "Be Nice" policy if you haven't done so already.

It's against my religion to have any religion but on the weekends I like to cross dress and pretend I'm Adolf Hitler.

If you have any further questions regarding this you can pm me.

Thanks :smile:

Secular humanist is a new term to me but as soon as I started researching the definition I feel it fits me well.

I'd say I follow the human religion so my god would be my DNA :wink:

Not because I think I'm "God", but because  (as far as I know)DNA is the only thing that makes me *me*... so it fundamentally dictates what my evolving conscious "self" makes of our consensus reality, and thus is the basis for creation of my reality,  henceforth(!) making it the figurhead of my religion (that doesn't exist).  *Deep breath* :wink:

I've never tried to classify myself as any religion before now, so just ignore me if the above makes no sense at all to you...I'm just indulging myself on account of this thread.

Wait a minute...
I've never come across a religion that made sense to me anyway, so maybe I'm on to something here...

I don't believe God is a being.
I don't believe there is a god, but I find myself wondering... how can I be so sure?
Sometimes I question whether or not there are forces which we cannot percieve.
Sometimes I wonder if there is an afterlife.

I hate organized religion with a passion (but I do not hate religious people).

I don't know what my religious beliefs are, and I don't know if I ever will.

i used to be Roman Catholic but my views on religion changed a year ago due to some important realizations i've made. Now i don't believe in any form of organized religion, i don't think there is a god, but if there is...well it doesn't change anything.

Im getting ready to convert to Zen Buddhism, although I consider it more of a philosophy for life, than a religion. I read a lot of eastern philosophy, especially Taoist, Buddhist, and Sufi writings. Douglas Adams books also go on my list of great spiritual writings of this century (or any for that matter).

I'm not familiar with the Satanic Bible or any "Satanist" religious ideals (well I might be, but I certainly don't know them as such).

I do remember Mark Borchardt in American Movie ranting about how Satanism is "the persuit of humanistic endevours", but I really have no idea what that means to him.

Maybe "human religion" was the wrong choice of words for the thought I was trying to convey, seems like Anton Levy already claimed that phrase...

DNA's pre-Crick symbol was the intertwined serpents seen in mythologies all around the world, related also to the knowledge of the divine serpent and kundalini energy, in my opinion. I mean think about it... Easterners have been worshipping the "serpent energy" as divine energy for thousands of years before the shape and nature of DNA was discovered. Hell, even the caduceus contained the symbol for DNA...

Unfortunately science can't prove or disprove this theory, so I guess it's just conjecture. Damn that conjecture. :smile:
