The Obvious Question

Postby Shoeman on Sun Oct 09, 2005 10:27 pm

What religion are you?

By default I know that you are Pastafarian.

But otherwise what religion are you?

Besides my dedication to the FSM I am a Satanist, in the tradition of the Church of Satan.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

None. Have no need for "religion." Spirituality is something else though and I don't thank any 2 people really share the same spirituality. It is something within, self nurtured and self developed.
A religion denotes (to me) a gang, club, group, or cult of people all trying to reassure themselves and each other, that they are right. It's something that you can join much like a wholesale club!

I can honestly say I don't know, I kind of struggled in other religions, a long story that I'd like to keep private. So, really, Pastafarianism is the only thing I practice at this moment.

Well the only thing you'll struggle with here is trying to find pirate gear.

I'm a Celtic Reconstructionist Pagan, and I also consider myself a Secular Satanist. (which may be a term I just invented this very instant).
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Nontellyvangelicalagnostexistatheihumanist.

There are no gods but us.

Jesus says so on the Orbital tuuuuuuune "You Lot":

Jesus wrote:You, are becoming Gods.
There's a new master of creation, and it's you!
You've unravelled DNA and at the same time you're cultivating bacteria strong enough to kill every living thing.

D'you think you are ready for that much power?
You lot? You lot!
Cheeky bastards.
You're running around science like kids with guns, creating a new world, while the one you've got is stinking.
Go on, hands up, hands up anyone who thinks you've got it right.
Yeh, there's always one. I can see you.
If you want the position of god then take the responsibility

I'm a Secular Humanist. That means that I hate America, and think that abortion is a good thing, and believe that Osama bin Laden is a basically decent person, and I like to discriminate against Christians, I believe in invented spelling, and that there is no such thing as "right" and "wrong", and I won't admit that Bill Clinton lied, and, oh, yes, I think we should raise taxes, and I'm a Socialist, and think that religion should be kept out of the public eye, and that people should be required to marry within their gender. What am I forgetting here? 8)

If you're in Wisconsin, NAFTA is a distant rumor (well, not I suppose if you work in manufacturing, but then, who does these days?).

Well, I've hopped religions a lot, was a druid, then became athiest, was Phycoist (Seaweed Worshipper) at one point, had an extremely brief (about a week) spat of Methodist, and now I'm a follower of the FSM! :worship: :fsm worried:

During my Methodist period, i was in Maine, where they do baked bean suppers instead. Fortunately, I do not like baked beans. But a casserole... :wink:

One time I had a bad case of "Hmmm Gods are talking to me and I'm a Prophet..." but that was brief itself thankfully.

It happened to me twice. One time I thought it was the Egyptian Gods and the second time it was ones of my own invention.

No I'm not crazy (well not anymore then the rest of them, what can you do, hormones right?)

The Egyptian Gods weren't brought on by watching Yu-Gi-Oh! Were they?

possibly one of the most frequently played tunes in the lab and now I know where it comes from, glee

and I have no religion.
people say I am a humanist, but I fail to see how as I do not tend to classify myself as that.
I am me, and I work off observable evidence. how is that a religion
