I stopped adhering to any religion. I just don't see the purpose anymore of believing into some "old" stories and allegories, and following without criticism some moral precepts that are not mine.

I need to focus more on wisdom, and less on politics.

The world could be a far more abundant and wonderful place without preconceived doctrines from all sides.

An opinion...

When science is invoked in the singular, to me it's like if an atheist resuscitate the dead God of Nietzsche. Because, just like some kind of religious people saying God is everywhere and created everything, the atheist tries to cancel any discussion about something if the atheist can link an element of the discussion that is contradicted by some scientific result from some scientific field without consideration of the context where that fact means something. Science in the singular form is like God because it act as a mono-discipline (monotheism), a shield, to protect the less fortunate results of the scientific method, in particular from dubious scientific fields.

I have formed my own niche religion beliefs, yes.
I agree with you on the science thing. I hope to be a scientist myself but I'm no going to try and disprove anyone's belief with it. That wouldn't be right.

Look up the church of cannabis. It was recently created by someone wanting to make marijuana a religiously worshipped idol.

Do Many Folks Actually Believe in What Organized

Religion Teaches; True, Everyone Sees the World Differently;

Therefore, Even Members in Each Organized Religion
Sees Each Of Those Organized Religions Differently.

It's Like the Catholic Church; As A Participant Anthropology
Observer Seeing All the Views Expressed There Since September of 2013;

Raised in that Church too; Part of the Reason i Picked it to Study; Visiting Most
of the Other So-Called Protestant Churches in the Area; Where It's all About Worshipping

One Man And When Folks Are Different, They Burn in Hell Forever; Whoever Dares To Disagree; That's Ridiculous

To Me Still Now; And Seems a Bit Masochistic as Folks Chant They Are Unworthy At Every Mass to A Story As Such

Spoon-Fed to Them As Long as they Remember, Without a reference point of what Might Have Happened in History

Before Those Teachings Were Interpreted As Such today. Before Donald J Trump it was Mostly a Meditative

Experience; the Folks are Very Aloof From Each Other; Whereas, Everyone is Up in Everyone's Business at
Smaller Baptist Churches in the Area. Lots of Gossiping Going On About Others, Who Are Not Attending
Sunday Dinner on the Pastor's Farm Grounds; Go Figure, Folks, Who Live in Economic Scarcity
Are always Trying to Vault themselves Over Others By Whatever They Are Seen to lack
in deficiencies, perceived as such. Sadly, Racism Is Still Prevalent Like Many Years
Haven't Passed. Anyway, Back to the Catholic Church; 39 Percent were on the
Fence of Leaving Before Covid-19 And Many Won't Go Back Now as too many
of the Services Allow Folks to Go Unmasked. And As Polled And Discussed
By Famous PR Bishop Barron on Youtube, 70 Percent of the Folks Who Do

Go, Do Not Believe the Priest can Literally Change A Wafer of Bread And

Wine into the Literal Flesh and Blood of a Little Brown Dude who lived

2,000 Years Ago, Noted as Crucified As Such; Yes, When All Is Said and

Done Now, No Matter Where Ya Live; The Information Highway Bypasses

All the Myths Provided And Spoon-Fed in Church and the Consequence

of that and Other Factors of Course is All of The Churches are Losing Younger

Generations and Most of the Folks Are Much Grayer than me at 60 Year-Old

As Basically i am 'the Child', At the Masses Now as Other Folks Don't Get
Around So easy now; (Just Studying by FB Live Streaming Now Out of A Pandemic

Crowd) Lots of Frowns; Yes, Life

Is Hard; Yet at least there

is Still Community Before then at
Church; Before the Church Became
The Right Hand 'Man' For Fox News
And Other Trump Propaganda Stuff; Before

It Was Okay; Excellent Young Choir Director;
Who Can Really Carry A Tune i Love Singing With;

Uplifting Indeed And Very Healing in Positive Emotional Way;

Yet the Taste of Trump Has surely Poisoned the 'Holy Water' there;

Leadership of the Country Does Runneth Over in the Pulpit and Pews for Real...

i've always Had my Own Religion Since Little; Just Never Bought the Myths; Realizing

That My Mother Could Put A Picture of Santa Above my Bed; No Different in the 60's than
The Hippy Looking Dude Jesus; And that Was Strange as Long Hair Was Frowned Upon so much

Where i Lived
Then; Yep, Kids got

Called Names then Like
Me, if Boys Daring to Smile;

It's Almost Like Trump was Jesus
to them even then; i always Wondered
Why i was so much Like The Story of Jesus
Within; Loving and all of that Happy Stuff; and

Why the Others were so Grumpy And Frowned so much;

Later, i found out, since i didn't Have a Father Around; That 'Big Daddies'
in the Neighborhoods Constantly Tell Their Little Boys, Don't Cry, Don't
Smile too Much as that won't make You a Real 'John Wayne' Man; Real 'Pilgrim' as such.

It Was Obvious That While the Story of Jesus Had its Good Points Like a Real Kingdom of
Heaven in Luke Way Within; Yes A State of Being in Experiencing Reality Now; Most of the

Rest of it Was Just A Bunch Of Folks Trying To Make Other Folks Do Whatever they Say;

Just Like those Frowny Face
Bully Boys in School; A Way of
Sour and Bitter Life; Just a Bad Taste Overall.

One thing i've Learned for Sure is Religion Still
Holds Hands Tight With Politics And Will Navigate
The Entire Country With or Without Laws of Separation of Church And State.

For Anyone Who Scoffs That Organized Christian Religion Has No Real Influence
in The World; Their Secret Weapon is they Are Fed the Same Meal And Get Out And Vote

Together
on the Same
Sheet of Choir

Music No Different
Really than Worshipping
The Same Man Who Died 2,000 or so Years ago Now...

Love is Real and Life Is Good; Giving And Sharing is Very Fulfilling;
i Try Not to Harm other Folks When i Dance And Sing Freely; Yet, Let's Just
Face it Not Everyone Sees Art in a Statue of David; Some folks are just plain disgusted

With Anything

That Doesn't Meet
Their Mold; Some

Folks Need

A Group

To Survive;

As Long As They
Do, There will be some kind
of Organized Religion; Either
Church or State And Other Avenues; Folks Bond and
Bind Over Similar Ideals And Symbols Together As Human;

Religion Is Gonna Always Be With Social Animal Humans
This Way, if We Decide we Wanna continue to exist; As It's
True, The Folks Who Ain't going to Organized Church Tween
Ages 18 And 34 Are Assessed As Half Not Having Any 'Valentine'

Significant

Other at All

In Flesh and

Blood At Least;

So What Does that
Mean; See What's Happened

In Japan, 'Biblically Speaking',

Folks Just are not 'Getting Together'

Like they Used to Do in "Adam And Eve"

Natural Ways; This is what Happens to A Species
Naturally That Is Harming, Maiming, Killing, Yes

Aborting the Rest of Nature That is Not Human Yet

Still Part of Us As Nature; 1 in 8 Animal And Plant Species,

In the Coming Decades to Go Extinct At the Hand of Humans

True Pandemic of

Human CuLTuRES

Humans Are Now;
And Nature Responds
the Same to Cull Humanity
Unmasked in Masses still Clear for all to see...

Basically, Donald J Trump Is 'Their' 'New Savior' Reflecting
How they See the First J Dude; And Now it's Just a Meme;
Yet It's Been True Ever Since The 60's Where i Live, Overall...

Young Folks Used to 'Hook-up' At Church; Now they Swipe
Left And Right Online; And the 50 Percent Number Shows

ThaT Ain't

the Real Thing.

My Religion Is: Fearless Dance
Song LoVE iN Truth oF LiGHT
With Least Harm For All

Free Eternally Now

i ain't the first Story
to come up with

This Story

Of Life in

Sweet

16 Words;

Yet it works
Great For me...

Other Than That: Have A Nice Day With Loving SMiLes...

Hmm; That Makes 23 Words; It's True Religions Grow This
Way In Language Like Culture, Overall of Symbols too; Yes

My Personal Bible is 9 MiLLioN Words Long With 14,433 Miles
of Public Dance All in 90 Months; True For Me Religion Is A Flower


That Never

Quits

Blooming

That i Create Now;
The More Stuff in Life
You come to Appreciate
DarK Through LiGHT; Yes, When
i Dance And Sing You i really Mean me...

Life Just Becomes A More Colorful Heaven Eternally Now...

That's My Story; i'm STicKinG to IT And Always Adding More Dance And Song Free..:)

Blasphemy!

I call upon all of you to repent the wicked ways of the false prophet Fnord and join our true Lord in the Church of Dorkseid!

I like to think of myself as "informally Buddhist". I don't actually know all that much about Buddhism, just the basics, but I think that's fine and appropriate. The focused minimalism suits me.

Good question, I think I'm a grey Jedi like Master Windu,

I live in the light but draw on (drawn to) the dark side

This.

If you wanna make your own religion, go for it. Not sure what it takes for it to be officially recognized as a religion, though.

I don't see why not.

I myself find for now that the beliefs of The Satanic Temple align pretty well with my 'religious' ideas, and don't really feel the need to create my own religion. But doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to start a religion of your own, seems those flying spaghetti monster worshipers where able to do it the pastafarians I believe the call themselves.

Id consider converting as that one does sound fun, but I just kind of prefer the imagery associated with satanism I like the goat skulls and inverted pentagrams.

To be fair all sincere religious people are all trying to attain the same state...just following different paths
