I'm a pagan and proud of it. Was raised on mainly buddhist principles, though very loosely.
I cried out with no reply

and I cant feel you by my side

so I'll hold tight to what I know

You're here and I'm Never Alone



We cannot seperate

you're part of me

and though you're invisible

I'll trust the unseen



Barlow Girl- Never Alone




In sleep

he sang to me,

in dreams

he came...

that voice

which calls to me

and speaks

my name...



And do

I dream again?

For now

I find

the Phantom of the Opera

is there -

inside my mind...

I was born Christian. I never really went to church though, I did for awhile when I was about ten. Then I was Atheist. Now I'm Buddhist, Zen Buddhism mostly. And I'm just happier with being Buddhist :D

Muslim- I've have read the Qur'an a lot and am interested in Islamic law and philosophy, but I'm considerably more socially liberal than is normal for practicing Muslims.

Nihilism.

Look it up.
To feel the wind tearing at my clothes, the elements.

The only truth left in a world of lies and hypocrisy.

The beauty of the abyss.

The anticipation, like anticipating the greatest sex, an existential foreplay.

Looking down into oblivion and voidness.

The ground far, far away as it seems from here, but in reality only a couple of seconds away.

Standing there.

Feeling eternity in a restricted world.

Feeling a decision in a prefabricated existence.

I am atheist.



I am a strong believer in that you can be a good person without being religious.

My parents, though both Catholic, brought me up to have faith in any religion or even no religion at all.

I don't really know for sure. I've been studying into Wicca for about five years now, I suppose. I was baptised as Catholic, only I don't follow the religion. BUT... I do believe there's many different Gods out there, and not only of the Greek kind Wiccans believe in.



It's too complicated to explain. Let's just leave it at that.

I am a Roman Catholic.....But I haven't got all the same beliefs. I am 100% prolife, but I also don't think homosexuality is something we should judge on, and I don't exactly practice abstience.......



But I am an Extraordinary Minster (I give out communion and the blood at mass), I am a teacher aide for little kindergarteners, youth group, respect life, usher, alter server, and I'm trying to become a Columbiette (a female Knights of Columbus, to follow in my Grandpa's footsteps.)



I love my religion
Hello Adulthood!



The courage to serve them with reliance

Face my mistakes without defiance

Show them I'm worthy

And while I show them

I'll show me



So, let them bring on all their problems

I'll do better than my best

I have confidence they'll put me to the test

But I'll make them see I have confidence in me


-I Have Confidence

To those who ask, I say I'm agnostic. There are several definitions of this:



a) One is unsure of what his/her religion is

b) One believes that no one can know what's out there (that's me)



I guess you could also say I'm "a." I know! Confusedism! That describes me perfectly.



I can tell you what I'm not I guess. I'm not Christian. I do not believe in that god or any of his affiliations. Nor am I Jewish, etc. I could be Wiccan, but I'm really not sure. I could be any number of things.



I've really stopped caring what I am.



To be quite honest; I just don't give a damn.

I am Christian. However, I really don't believe in half of what they tell me. I am a form of my own religeon, I guess...

many have defined my religion as nothing. but its not true. ive studied many religions. ive been a christian,ive been jewish, ive been buddhist, ive been pagan, ive been an anarchist too. (and yes, it is a religion.)



but i would have to say, if i had to pin it down, i would be labeled a "Satanist".



now for those of you who's minds emediatley thought i worshiped satan, you could not be farther from the truth. a satanist is not one who worships the christian devil. in fac i dont believe in the devil. nor do i believe there is a god. i believe in myself. i believe there is a sense of nobility in everyone and that right and wrong are not pre-decided. there is no black and white, only various hues of grey.



well. those are my thoughts for the night. sorry if that made no sense... :huh:
I think people hold on to memories because they are the only things that remain the same when everyone

and everything else is changing.

Unitarian Universalism is what I most believe in--because it isn't a structured belief system. It more allows you to develop your own faith and beliefs on the basis that you'll get more out of it if you can develop the spiritualism yourself, rather than if a strict set of beliefs and rules are handed out to you from the get-go. It's just a nice, open environment where no one is going to tell you you're going to hell if you don't believe this or that, or if you do this or that. =/
