    All religions have things in common and things in particular, even unique sometimes.
    A while ago I had the change to visit the Jehovah's Witnesses head quarters in New York and I was very impressed at how modern and organized everything was. What an incredible work, considering it's all volunteer work and the funding is done via donations that each member provides according to their means and personal situation (donations are anonymous and private so no one knows what others give). The coordination with the branches in different countries alone left me speechless.
    Is there anything about your religion that you find unique, or particularly amazing?

    Me! I'm unique in my religion. I'm also very humble.




    Sorry, it's Purim tomorrow night. It's that time of year... :oops:

    It's cool when someone's actually heard of it.

    I heard of your religion on a Delphi forum years ago and I think it is a cool religion. :)

    That I don't believe in truth like it is generally thought off, since I am a skeptic.

    I don't. I think it's painful and lonely and heartbreaking :)

    Ah well.

    No community. No communal worship. No dress codes, rituals, set prayers, groups or organisations. Hardly any Noahides at all.

    I'm still not sure I have a religion as such, but it would need to be laid back, diverse, and inclusive... Like Hinduism for example.

    So what drew you to your religion then? Community is one of the cornerstones of religion. It must be hard no to have it.

    Crumbs. This implies I should know stuff about other religions!
    Errrrr...perhaps....
    Dependent origination.
    The absence of intrinsic existence (sunyata).
    Being-time.
    Practice-enlightenment.
    (There's lots of variations between Buddhist traditions and interpretations)

    I'd assume you are not really looking for these things. If you were, you'd change your religion. You are seeking something else.

    I am pretty desperate for these things and have been suicidal for a while. I just believe my religion is true and cannot change that. I won't exchange truth for a happy lie.

    Atheist? Not having to worry about supernatural entities involving themselves in your life.
