What religious beliefs do you have?
I realise this could be a dodgy thread. I'm only after really basic statements here. I just thought it'd be interesting to see a general cross-section of the religions of the user-base here.

NO ARGUING ABOUT RELIGION. NO SLAGGING OFF OTHER RELIGIONS.

If this is a bit too divisive, then feel free to lock this thread, beautiful mods. I'll totally understand if you do, it's a very touchy subject.

RE: What religious beliefs do you have?
I've been reading a whole lot about Theravada Buddhism. They seem to be knowing what's going on.

While I kind of believe in what they are trying to do, it's not really a religion I practice just yet.

Does your liking what they do have an impact on your beliefs? What makes you warm up to a particular belief system?

To be honest it's kind of personal to a level which I don't want to discuss so much furhter into at this forum, sorry.

What peaked my interest though is that Buddhism, especially Theravada, is all about questioning the religion itself. Buddha himself once said that only an idiot would believe something without having doubt. This makes Theravada a timeless religion and this is also the reason why there are so many branches of Buddhism out there. He doesn't necessarily believe that life is all good, but that the bad is a huge part of life that you need to accept. Because once you do, life becomes easier. Theravada doesn't go around bullshitting about gods or that everything in life is good. Just that there are some stuff you might have to deal with, and once you do, and other people do, it might make life easier.

Not really into the whole "Imaginary super omnipotent divine being creating all that we know (and don't know)", but I do have a shrine of Hayley Williams that I pray to in the back of my wardrobe. Gaming is a "religion" too right?

Good answer, man. Again, this is a really personal kind of topic, so it doesn't usually lend itself well to "internet debates" (i.e omg ur HiTlEr). I like that it's okay to say "hm, not comfortable discussing it".

I really hope this thread doesn't turn into any kind of debate. I just think it'd be cool to be able to find out about other peoples' religions without a confrontational atmosphere.

Christian here (and yes I know how typical of an answer) and just to make things clear I'm not preachy about it this is most likely the only place on this forum you will here about it from me, everyone has their own beliefs and I respect that I will not try to force my views on any of you. (Also to people that have noticed I swear in some of my posts I'm not that great of a christian either)

Hello champ. I'm an atheist myself but I really like learning about different religions (plus religious music is always the best, and I'm not taking the piss here). Have you got a particular errr... I dunno what the word branch of Christianity?

No I do not belong to a certain branch (i.e. Lutheran, Catholicism, etc.) just generally Christian.

D'you go to church? Oh, hey... I meant it when I said religious music is the best. Blind Willie Johnson basically made the best blues song ever and it's about Christ. Also, it was sent into space in the 70s.

I'm an atheist. If a religious person respects me for what I am, I will respect him for what he is. That's just all.
