    You mean it doesnt lie to its members, it doesnt require monetary contributions, and doesnt have a corrupt hierarchy? I guess your right.

    Hook, line, and sinker. I am so ashamed.

    There's plenty of good in the mainstream Abrahamic religions, though. Plenty of bad, too, but that's to be expected with memberships in the billions. Actually quite a few Abrahamic sects that I have quite a bit of respect for, for various reasons.

    I just have doubts about any faith that recognizes the divine but questions the supernatural-- what is spirituality and what does it mean if you reject any claims about its effects on the material world?

    You know, it's funny. I was watching a program on the History Channel a couple of days ago called "Clash of the Gods" about ancient Greek mythology. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in ancient mythology, it's quite well done. Anyhow, I was noticing how funny it was that when they referred to the Greek beliefs, they always called them myths, but when they switched to current Christian beliefs for a comparison, they almost invariably referred to them as "beliefs". It's like you can call ancient Greeks a bunch of primitive buffoons because they're not around to defend themselves, but when you have modern-day theists of any stripe, Christian or no, who believe basically the same thing, you're expected to pretend that their beliefs, which are functionally no different than those of ancient man, are somehow more credible.

    Someone, please explain that to me, I just don't get it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're not answering the question. Don't you believe that people who hold delusional beliefs delusional? So aren't you calling all people who believe in any kind of religion here delusional?

    Christian Universalist with Unitarian Universalist leanings. Might be easier just to describe myself a Unitarian Universalist since I don't believe in biblical inerrancy.
