Re: What Religions?

"Heart" -- Please remember that both Roman Catholic and all the Protestant denominations consider themselves to be Christians!

 

Those who follow my posts can probably guess my denominational affiliation; however, I prefer to overtly identify myself here under the broader category of "Protestant;" still,  my faith is informed from multiple sources.

I'm a Reform Jew, although not as much of a practicing on since my move to a new city as I was before. It's harder when you don't have a community that you feel established in.

Re: What Religions?

I was raised in Cambodia as a Buddhist. As an adult, I converted to Roman Catholicism. I married a Roman Catholic...

 

And irony of ironies, my daughter (who is 24) is showing an intense interest in Buddhism.

IBIS, I did not realize you were from Cambodia! I have a mild obsession with Cambodia and Cambodian history.

Re: What Religions?

Yeah, I visited a couple years ago for two weeks, but that's not where it started. I saw a picture of the Angkor Wat in National Geographic when I was 10 and I was obsessed ever since. At this point I own about 20 books on recent and ancient Cambodian history.

Re: What Religions?

I'm a reform Jew.  Reading Joseph_F's description from a few months ago, that's pretty much what my situation has been lately.

Re: What Religions?

When I was young, my family used to be called 'pagans' or 'heathens' because we were atheists but when people realised that a-theists do not believe in any kind of god or religious ritual, as pagans and heathens do, the word atheist was used to describe non- believers. 

 

In the Classification section of the Wikipedia website cited by TiggerBear, there are useful subdivisions of paganism and I think most pagans in this club could be described as Neopagans.

Re: What Religions?

[ Edited ]

 

I am a 6 on the Dawkins Scale of Religious Probability from his book The God Delusion.

 

The scale is below, and I have bolded the part that describes me. The only reason I can't put 7 is because I cannot be 100% certain. However, I will say that I no more question my atheism than I question my lack of belief in unicorns in my coffee cup.

 

 1. Strong theist. 100 per cent probability of God. In the words of C.G. Jung, 'I do not believe, I know.'
   2. Very high probability but short of 100 per cent. De facto theist. 'I cannot know for certain, but I strongly believe in God and live my life on the assumption that he is there.'
   3. Higher than 50 per cent but not very high. Technically agnostic but leaning towards theism. 'I am very uncertain, but I am inclined to believe in God.'
   4. Exactly 50 per cent. Completely impartial agnostic. 'God's existence and non-existence are exactly equiprobable.'
   5. Lower than 50 per cent but not very low. Technically agnostic but leaning towards atheism. 'I do not know whether God exists but I'm inclined to be sceptical.'
   6. Very low probability, but short of zero. De facto atheist. 'I cannot know for certain but I think God is very improbable, and I live my life on the assumption that he is not there.'
   7. Strong atheist. 'I know there is no God, with the same conviction as Jung "knows" there is one.'

Re: What Religions?

I am Roman Catholic.  I think that means I am a Christian, at least to us it means that.:smileyhappy:
