    I feel strong affinities for Eastern Orthodox Christianity and the concept of theosis as well as the praxis it requires.
    Similarly (although a bit paradoxically, yet it comes out coherent in my head), I have strong affinities with zen buddhism.

    I have a good opinion on Catholicism as it has been a great provider for the arts (the indulgence system was pure genius), as well as of Shinto (I like their architecture and relationship with nature).

    I live a rather agnostic secular lifestyle, and while I've had some moments of enlightenment that induced faith, I still haven't taken the step of becoming genuinely religious.
    Maybe I am afraid that I will onto something if I do... Is my instinct on this right?
    Because, in a way, by not applying any religious practice in my life, I could also very well be missing out on what would be the most important if it happens that my faith is not an illusion.

    I worship the sun. When I wake in the morning I can see it.

    The sun is powerful enough to illuminate the moon at night.

    I know it's always there.

    Without the sun and the materials of creation from the stars!

    None of us would exist.

    Worshipping the sun follows the KISS principle and I like that concept very much.

    The sun sets a good example in keeping a routine. It is very constant in it's patterns and behaviors.

    The sun did not choose to favor a specific plant, animal, or rock over all others.

    The sun even shines on a dog's ass sometimes.

    It is the giver of life.

    I believe that everything is a surprise and it's just meant to be that way.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Yes. I think there are lots of people who feel like that. If you come to know, you cannot go back to not knowing, and knowing makes you responsible. If you then don't fulfil the responsibility, it weighs down on your mind and conscience. So it's tempting to avoid asking any questions in the first place and continue with the distractions and entertainment that the agnostic secular lifestyle offers.

    I'm not an anything but i believe in something, probably more like a universal power of being rather than a singular or multiple God/Gods.
    I tend to get quite into ideas and philosophies rather than organized religion.
    Reincarnation be it scientific or spiritual has an appeal.
    My partner would be in the direction of Zoroastrianism and i find it an interesting & attractive philosophy.

    The Enlightenment

    The Enlightenment disposed of religion and they never forgave us.

    So we are pursued by jihad. We are pursued by blind belief. Some say we are pursued by the Hound of Heaven.

    And they continue to hound even cartoonists.

    But the Enlightenment gave us the modern world, and it looks like it is here to stay.
