    Only The Strong Can Do This...

    Cause "you're it".  Metaphorically speaking "you're the 'tech support' if something breaks"...  If you are weak mind who needs thousands of others chanting the same thing in order believe there is truth, then this just  isn't for you :-D

    I Definitely Have My Own Unique Religion, It's A Mix Of A Lot Of Things, Really... :)

    First off, I've always considered myself more of a Spiritualist, then a religious person. Just sayin'. My "religious" and philosophical views are largely a mixture of: Paganism, Wicca(Wiccan)/Witchcraft stuff, Tolstoyism (Leo Tolstoy philosophy), Anthroposophy (Rudolf Steiner...

    A Stoic Life

    I was raised Catholic, but as I got older, the more disenchanted I became with the Church (and organized religion, in general). It's not that I didn't believe in a higher power, just that the structure of Catholicism didn't fit with how I was starting to see the world. So, over...

    Grieving For A Friend

    Regardless of the fact that I have my own unique religion, I do have a close friend who is a Catholic priest. I found out today that his parents were killed in a car crash. This is unspeakably horrible. What gods do I invoke? What monster god do I invoke and scream at? I'm...

    The Answer

    A buddhist student asks his teacher, "Upon what does the world lay?". The teacher replies."Upon the back of a turtle." The student is perplexed, and asks,"Upon what does the turtle stand?". The teacher responds."Another turtle." Still not satisfied, the student asks,"What does...

    It's not a religion more

    so an inspiration that has gotten me further in life than anything else. I don't talk about it out loud but I'd like to post about it. I tried being Christian when I met my girlfriend and after a year I realized I hated it and after awhile I got her to understand my reasons and...

    I Like To Call It: Omniversalism (omni Means All)

    I have about 200 pages written and some more to go. The outline is: U - Unity; L - Learning; E - Evolving; A - Awakening which is U.L.E.A. It is not organized as a group or anything. If it were it would be a giant round table discussion rather than the Christian pastor at the...

    My Own Religion

    My own unique religion is that I never enter a church building. I have found more honest people in bars. I worship God on my own, in my own way without shoving it in anyone’s face. I definitely would never follow and listen to any man because he’s the “leader” of a...

    My Own Religion Will Always Be The Best One For Me

    Because it is mine, I took the time to do some soul searching and put the lines together to come up with something of my own. I believe in a God of sorts, actually. I believe in a thing of almost a consciousness, that keeps the universe in harmony. My feelings are unique in the...

    This I Believe.

    I believe in God as a force of the universe, life itself. We are all God. I believe that we each have a path in life, that sometimes that path makes us choose different religions. I don't believe in conversion. If someone is a good person that contributes to the well being of...

    I think that religion is a very personal thing.

    It is great to exchange points of view, but when it comes to religion, there is no ultimate truth. It is all about what feels right to an individual and that can be different for every single one. The Bible, Koran, priests, pastors, imams, etc. can give inspiration, but not tell...

    I believe in what I believe.

    I have to actually see it to believe it. I'm totally supportive of people who have their own religions and beliefs but DO NOT push your religion on when when it can't be proven. Don't try to ask me if I "found god" don't ask me if I "worship the devil since I haven't found god...

    Mythological Masala

    Well, Let's See... Yep, It's Definitely A Belief System Of Some Sort.

    There is no such thing as an all-powerful entity. There are entities that have power, but the power is balanced. There are seven primal elements found in Nature: Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Light, Dark, and Life. The first six have natural opposites (Water-Fire, Earth...

    I Worship Death?

    Demonic Bible

    Before you jump into any conclusion based upon the title, I'd like to point out that all "demons" were gods at one point before another religion came along and claimed them to be false gods and demons. One mans god could very well be another man's demon, and vice versa. Now then...
