    I think our religious poll numbers are artificially lowered due to the NT personality description attracting those who idolize and worship NT tendencies.

This is ironic, of course, because they're actively worshiping a Jungian identity invention instead of a bread-and-butter genre of god. This means that, perhaps, NT types are more religious than any other personality group.

    Regardless, I'm an NT Christian and there are tons of us. We're not rare.
    I think according to most MBTI studies of religious affiliation, NTs (especially ENTPs) are significantly underrepresented in those that identify with a religion. To quote from one study:

    Undergraduates claiming no religious affiliation were distinguished from the combined group of undergraduates attending the college of higher education by a more frequent preference for Intuition (p < .01) and by a combined Intuitive/Thinking preference (p < .001). In fact, NTs constituted 13% of the religiously unaffiliated, compared to 2% of Roman Catholics, 4% of Free Church members, and 5% of Anglicans. Combined Extraverted/Intuitive preferences were also significantly more frequent among students confessing no religious affiliation (38%) compared to the combined undergraduate group (28%, p < .01). Similarly, combined Extraverted/Perceiving preferences (p < .01) and Thinking/Perceiving preferences (p < .01) were overrepresented for the religiously unaffiliated group compared to the general student body.
    And I agree that underrepresented ≠ rare, necessarily.

    This is actually more surprising than Christianity to me.

    I agree with much of this.

    [Agreed.] Typically, sensational! Instant gratification from spirits (not from God) with minimal to no faith required.

    ...or so I've heard.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong. The term has many meanings. :/

    Erm, my problem is that it's pretty much 100% faith. I don't think that there's any evidence at all for Paganism. Maybe I'm wrong, though.

    For fear of sounding delusional I'll pass on the demon lecture tonight, and just say that I echo your sentiments.

    Default Et in Arcadia ego

    I’m truly sorry if I am
    Loosing my grip
    If I’m fading away
    Watching the stars as I set sail
    I’m truly sorry if I was
    A disappointment to you
    But I cannot stay
    Watching the stars
    Longing to set sail
    I know that I will miss you
    But it’s time for me to leave
    The arcadia is calling my name

    How does this differ from the Christian God (not the existence of Jesus)? Aren't many of the old testament stories very similar to those found in older pagan religions?

    I'm not a pagan, just curious.

    I dont think they are similar, having read both, I dont dismiss one as false and the other as truthful either. Not automatically.

    Although I do think there's a lot of nonsense and superstition churned out to satisfy consumer demand for neo-paganism, for instance pop-wiccans, there's some amusing episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer which I recall in which Willow, genuine witchcraft adept, joins a circle of pop-wiccans who're a bitchy cliche of feminazis.
