So many folks find something or label that separates them from others. I think that is a problem. I am a crazy Christian dude but I find things in common with an Egyptian Muslim of a Vietnamese Buddhist. Of course I do with a Finish sun worshiper and a Shinto priest.
Some in my """ religion""" say I am a bad man for loving my neigbor and my enemy. And worse they say I am heretic for believing I am a brother with an atheist.
I am as my great teacher taught me. Accepting of all, speaker of my beliefs, lover of all beliefs and friend to those without one. I hiked a great Mexican Volcano outside of Puebla just next to a town Cholulla. About 60 miles north of Mexico City. But I hiked it barefoot with Tibetan monks and we hiked through snow and up to the crest. I think about 13,000 ft. We stared into the molten happenings snorted the sulfer and got the hell out there.
My history presents no direct -- who I am. And the very damned best I can come up with is "lover of life".
Think about it for a second. Who are you.
I do reckon when all boils down I am a simple man named dad abd husband and son. What say you
Much the same really, although I haven't climbed many volcanoes, at least literal ones.
If I suffer from a major fault, it is that I am very judgemental. I have to constantly remind myself, that none of us can really take the moral high ground. We all have our faults. Usually, about ten minutes after I have reminded myself of that fact, I'm noting the "mote" in everyone elses eye, while cheerfully forgetting about the humungous "beams" in my own.
I am a person who love life. Passionate about poetry and writing. Love the fact that I've met my soulmate. Love our adopted cat Sid. Feel like everyday I can find some joy and sing and dance. Get lots of inspiration from my favorite music. Always struggling to make ends meet but life goes on. Have faith and I let the Lord guide me each day. More or less that's who I am.
...Finnish sun worshipper?
Last I checked, no one worships the sun and everyone in Finland is either a Lutheran or an Atheist.
I am a whosoever.
Jesus died for whosoever would believe in Him, to give us everlasting life someday with Him.

What does religion do to us?You can't think about the past and ignore religion, it was such a fundamental, mind shaping, driving force for pre-modern societies. I am very interested in what religion does to us, today...its capacity to create love and empathy or hatred and violence. Is religion...

Do you believe in the Summerland or something similar such as Tir Na Nog or Heaven, etc.? Do you also believe in reincarnation or a recycling of energy? What do you, as a Pagan, believe in as far as life after death? For me, I am a believer in the Summerland (I also refer to it as Tir Na Nog from...

How do you feel about the stereotyping of beliefs?For example whenever an atheist like me does something wrong it somehow manages to reflect on atheists as a whole, not just me as a person. Whenever a catholic does something wrong it's a similar event (like the priest scandals). Whenever it's a...

What does religion mean to you?With so much evidence supporting science these days and countless discoveries disregarding religion and proving it wrong, what does religion mean to you? Religion means nothing to me, personally. I am atheist and am happy being atheist and I am happy with religious...

Can you make a deal with God?So first a disclaimer, I am an atheist and don't believe there is a God, but for those of you who do, do you make "deals" with God or do you believe you can do this and does God respond?The other day, I heard of someone who promised God to go to church more if...
