Default From a very curious agnostic... what 'religion' are you? What defines religion?

I'd be very greatful if you help me out and answer a few questions for me?
I would love to know what (if any) religion you consider yourself to be, and what religion means to you... And could you let me know what part of the UK or further afield (Worldwide!) you are from?

Thank you,
Katie.

Hi. People generally have their religion listed next to their username. I'm in the u.s.a.

Hi there, thank you.
Perhaps a more pressing question then is if you could clarify what exactly religion (your religion more specifically) means to you? I'm after personal experiences I suppose.

Ah, yes I noticed that part of your question after I responded. I think I'll just let other people answer.

I'm a Unitarian Universalist by affiliation, from the US. Seeing as that doesn't really say much about my theology, I'm also a panentheist with deep neopagan roots.

Religion is primarily about community for me, with ritual a close second.

Welcome to the forum, Katie! Hope you make yourself at home

What religion you consider yourself to be

I consider myself to be a Sith, for now, I can go under many different labels; Nihilism, Existentialism, Atheism, LHP, etc.

What is means to you

Nothing, as anyone can claim the title, and put a spin on it whether truthfully felt or a lie. They could be roleplayers or some other nonesense.

Where I am from

Iowa, U.S.A

I'm a Baha'i, and religion plays a major part in who I am and what I do with my time as well as my life generally!

Peace, :-)

I'm Jewish (Conservative/Masorti) living in the USA. I am a rabbi, so I guess my religion is fairly important to me. I value it because it is a spiritual discipline, because it is a way for me to structure an attempt to elevate myself in holiness, because I feel it brings me closer to God, and because it is my inheritance, the way of my people for uncounted centuries. I love Judaism, and I love being Jewish.

being just a BEING which is a part of that *WHOLE* which is also labelled *God/Brahman/Allah/etc./etc. Considering religions to be paths or ways to merge with that *whole* find practicing no-path which too is a path but not confirming to any particular path.

Love & rgds

Hi, Katie. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; this means I'm a "Latter-day Saint" or "Mormon." To me, my religion helps me understand my relationship to God. It helps me know what He expects of me, and was I can expect of Him in return. It gives my life meaning and direction, and helps me in difficult times. I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah (but my ancestors on my dad's side were from Yorkshire .)
