My beliefs closely resemble Buddhism, so I guess I'd call myself a Buddhist.

Yeah... it's a combination of Buddhism, Taoism, my own personal philosophies, and the teachings of the sacred shroom.

Well, myself, I am what is known as The Bass God. As a deity, having a considerable presence, I can't really belong to a religion. Is Allah a Muslim? No, he's God. hehe
I guess my religion would be Life. I find truth in what I find truth in, no matter what religion or paradigm the ideas come from. I think everyone should create their own religion, instead of following a pre-conceived idea on how to live life and what to believe.
I guess I do believe, however, that there are some ultimate truths and all that. Paradoxes, string theory, infinite dimensions inside of infinite dimensions in every direction, us as a whole, one Creator, the whole 3rd density, 4th density thang, etc.
I also like to believe that I don't exist. That nothing matters. The best way to find meaning in life is to first acknowledge there is no meaning (works for me, anyways). It sort of liberates you, clears a lot of society's "necessities", allows you to make things have meaning. (I just need to live from this perspective 100% of the time).
Hell, I'll even go as far as saying that I am here to reach higher consciousness, to lose this self, this low level vantage point, to merge with the Universe, and to help others do this.
I also believe that I am right here, right now. All this fucking pain is an illusion.
Peace.

I am too scared to admit that there isn't a God, so I just live in fear and shame like any good Catholic.

i dont have a "religion" but, i do have a constanty evolving philosophy.

loosely based on:

-the zhuangzi
-relativism----importance of individuality
-post-nuclear immediacy
-the belief that because I have existed, I will always HAVE existed, and therefor i will always exist.
-the belief that death is imminent, and therefor irrelevent.
-the belief that the nature of the universe is positive and is meant to be enjoyed.

and some other beliefs that i cant really articulate at the moment.


--------------------
enjoy the entertaining indentity i have constructed for you while you can.

I read the bible once..........once.  :devil:










But seriously, Im pretty agnostic but still get spasms of awe that can be compared to extreme religious reverence. If I start digging farther than that into my head, then I start getting into the mess of what it exactly means to be religious[I apologize, im not very usefull when it comes to shit like this, but I like doing it.].

Let's just say im in a religion that's currently in its beta stages; it may or may not work out. I won't deliniate on discrete details, but it involves the philosophical questions of: The Nature of Man and Man and the State. and the space in between. It will probably never solidify and I will probably never get all the information I need. But i like pretend I have goals that are "usefull" and "pragmatic"; you know how it is...    :rolleyes:

I saw this definition in an english dictionary:

religion: the belief in and worship of a god or gods, or any such system of belief and worship

With that definition, I am not religious since I don't worship anything, and I'm not sure if I believe in a god or gods. That depends on how you define god or gods.

But when I looked for the etymology of the word religion, I found that it comes from the latin verb religare which means to bind or tie. The english verb to rely has the same latin root. If I take religion to mean tied together into one, unification, then I am religious, and tryptamine hallucinogens together with some of the philosophy of Shakyamuni Buddha are my chosen tools to accomplish this unification.

Those dictionary definitions turn Elvis into a god, well he is for some...
Anyway, religion just means "connection with god" and i believe we're all connected. Look at the shroomery server, it is our god, your computer is the church and the phone lines is our religion, we all are "shroomerists", even when we're not connected we know it is there although we've never seen it.
