    I don't do it because of the liberal cultural milleau, and I don't think that way to feel original, novel or unique.

    I'll try to say this in the safest way possible:

    I was born, raised, baptized, and confirmed in the Episcopal Church but I've left it and am now Agnostic.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    When did that happen?

    I too am Agnostic. I too spent time in the Episcopal church growing up and then the Anglican church.

    A couple of months ago. Something clicked and I began to hate the church. I question a lot that I've been brought up on, yet don't have answers that come with age and experience.

    Religion can help lots of people, thats great! I just dont feel comfortable with it, why should I believe another mans words, & not one religion is better then another or more right then another....wheres the proof anyway.

    Im just unsure

    What I do know is what feels right or wrong in my heart and in my solar plexus, I dont need to follow a religion when I have that.

    To each their own!

    This highlights the distinction between religion and spirituality (perhaps already made in this thread -- I have not read all the pages). Many people who do not follow an established church or religion still consider themselves spiritual and follow spiritual practices on their own or with an informal group of like-minded individuals. Each of us believes what we believe. Religions are then a bit like shoes in the store: none are tailor-made to our specific feet and style, but many people still manage to find a pair with a satisfactory fit. The rest of us have to be a bit more creative and self-motivated.
