Demographics - Religion?

2 Votes per user.

1 vote is for choosing your religious affiliation, and the other is for determining how often you frequent that belief.

Why are you posting that, and not voting that?

and what religion is that, or is it a personal religion...?

Sorry, I forgot to vote first before posting. It's Germanic Heathenism.

BonerJoe is just being a douche as usual... it's just the three of us 'viewing' the thread.

Bonerjonerism wasn't on the list, so I had to pick SOMETHING.

Isn't that an offshoot of Zoroastrianism?

I don't worship a god. But I do at the same time.

I call myself "incredulous" but I picked weak-atheist. It seemed to be the closest.

I do Jewish stuff at least once a month.  Often severeal times a month.  Although over summer I've got to admit I haven't gone to Synagogue twice.

"Unlisted Pantheistic Religion"
"I perform religious ceremonies"

I wouldn't quite call what I do religious. I adhere to no particular religion or dogma, but cosmic forces and principles that have been known to mankind since the earliest societies were formed, which have been discarded by most people today and crushed by the very governments and religions they were founded upon. I believe in a mixture of the ego and what's beyond the ego...meaning I recognize the ego, and cherish it, but try to destroy it through certain rituals and practices so I can see past it (usually every day, unless something comes up and I can't do them). I don't think of it as a burden, just another layer of my being that I should be able to turn off and on at will.

And I'm not posting this to start a debate. I'm just giving a rudimentary outline of some of my beliefs.
