I've been doing research and it seems the more research I do, the more questions I have.....
I did the religion bit. I did the belief in god bit.
Then realized, I didn't have a need for either one, because neither one is actually a requirement for living.
I was born INTO the Catholic religion. FORCED to attend mass, join the choir, join the youth group, Legion of Mary and teach Catechism. Got fed up after I was ridiculed by my congregation, priest and fellow Catechists. Said to heck with you and was done...
Now I light my incense and candles at home and just am living my life for once. Of course I still get people that want to pray for me and force their religion down my throat and I kindly say thanks but no thanks and I keep it moving.
I am a Pagan. But that is not necessarily a religion, but more something akin to whatever spirituality is.
None because I have yet to see a good reason to reject the null hypothesis.
I believe in the literal truth of the Bible. (Don't ask me why.)
I believe that Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior. (I have no idea what this means, but I believe.)
I believe that all non Christians are going to hell when they die. (What a nice guy I am!)
My religion? Bigotry and hatred of those who are not like me!
Now, seriously. My religion is to practice: compassion, fairness, and moderation. I am who I am because of what the universe does for me. This is my religion.
I have been an Anglican, a Jehovah's Witness, a Quaker and now a Spiritualist. I no longer believe in a personal god or any theology, yet I do find myself praying to God in spite of myself. I tend to find myself siding with anyone, whether atheist or religious believer if they are having a hard time of it. I cannot however support any kind of bigoted beliefs, whether based on religion or politics. And despite being a Spiritualist, I do not believe in life after death. However, I do feel the need for some kind of spiritual input in my life, even if I have great trouble believing in what I am being told to believe. So, I would describe myself as a practising contradiction.

Often, a dispute or argument is about religion. A lot of times, I'm drawn into it since I'm very religious myself. But, often I hesitate to respond because it can cause a war online( aka, a flame war). I usually have,...

I think they can be proved but one must be open to the reality of intuitive perceptions and spiritually based practices. For instance, mediums open themselves up to spirits from beyond the physical plane. However, one...

Character assassination appears to be the tactic most frequently used by those who want to ensure that only currently accepted scientific theories are used to draw conclusions in the realm of religion and philosophy....

Why are people posting so many religeous or spiritual questions in a forum for Writers? Is it that some just like to start arguments that cannot be proven either way? Or, the more likely, are some using forums for doing...
