    If you've never been to a Unitarian Universalist church I would highly recommend it. It's great to see Muslims, Buddhists, Christians, etc. come under one roof and discuss the similarities between their specific religious interpretations of the same god.
    Despite the poll, it seems like Unitarian Universalist isn't exactly Christian, but more of an agnostic or postmodern theism.

    That certainly applies to Marx, Gaia, and the Messiah.
    Religion in this sense is based upon the supernatural. I think that's the key distinction between religion and philosophy.

    Re: Religion

    This wasn't my poll, but I admit that I think it is a wonderful thing that there are such a wide array of religions represented on this forum. Where else can you get atheists, post modern theists, agnostics, christians, pagans, shamans, or whatever, all together in one place to discuss topics and the problems of this world? Wonderful.

    Re: Religion

    I think it's a fascinating thing that over half of the voters in this poll are non-religious.
    It shows that religion grows weaker and weaker with the years.

    Well, at least among those with an access to the internet.

    I'm not shamanist, I'm semi-pagan. I'm prone to drinking too much and dancing naked in the moonlight.

    Re: Religion

    Catholic, but more spiritual than religious. I enjoy the ceremonies of the Catholic church but despise the hypocracy of all of the major practicioners of any given religion, so I take the lessons learned from the experience to shape my path, but do not judge others who follow a differing path, as long as they do so in peace.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Nothing more supernatural than socialism. It's completely unnatural, in fact.

    No, the key essence of religion is the denial of truth in favor of dogma.
