To get a better idea of the general belief demographic of those visiting S&P, I've erected this poll of the major religions. (Christianity and its branches are in one option, since there are so many sub-groups of it, same with any religion with sub-groups)

Satanism
Buddhism
Confucianism
Hinduism
Islam
Judaism
Taoism
Neo-Paganism
Vodun (Voodoo)
New Age (Self-Spirituality)
Unitarian-Universalism
Scientology
Atheism
Agnostic
Gnosticism
Shinto
Wicca
Humanism
Other (post)
Other (Combination of religions)
None




Votes accepted from (12/31/69 07:00 PM) to (No end specified)

As for myself personally, my beliefs put me somewhere around Neo-Paganism/Buddhism/New Age.. which I call Shroomism  :grin:

My viewpoint is largely Taoist and Agnostic in nature, but I don't consider either one to be a religion. If you understand that I come from a background of Catholic schools, perhaps you would then understand why I don't consider them as actual religions. But, that being said, I will play along.

I understand what you are saying, I try not to lump myself into any one category as my beliefs are quite flexible. But for the purpose of this try and choose something. We don't have to call them religions.. more like perspectives.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

I chose New Age (Self Religion) just for lack of a better option. Most of my spiritual ideas and practices have been formed from my use of psychedelics (specifically Psilocybin mushrooms) and a life-long feeling of having a high spiritual purpose on this world. As I explore more and more religions, I have found that my beliefs and practices come closest to Buddhism.

I voted for none, because I can't simply choose one.

If I had to choose a combination it would be a good mix of New Age, Neo-pagan and Buddhism, although not a single word has enough descriptive power to sum up even a fraction of what my "way" entails.

Because I'm just so deep man, yeah!

I say it's better for anyone to go without any such titles, because people are likely to develop all kinds of misconceptions based on a single word which you use to associate your own personal way of life. Why not just get to know somebody, and their ideas, and draw your own conclusions as to how their "way" relates to your own? Rather than taking the shortcut and allowing a single word to represent what you believe.

I'm sure many of you already know what I mean but thought I'd say it anyway :smile:

The way I figure it, you only want one believer (yourself), because if you have more than one and less than a million you're in a cult.

Then all a cult is is a budding religion!

Is it justified after you've surpassed 1 million? hehehe

I voted the New-Age one, it seemed about right.

I voted Buddhism,

well because I am a buddhist :P

Whether or not I go the full way, become a monk and join a monastery, I am as yet, undecided.

With Metta,
Jono.
