RE: please help us out!!
Thank you very much sesame!
And yes most people don't see their beliefs as a religion but I'm also trying to cover scientology, wiccan beliefs etc etc.. It's hard to put all those different beliefs in one category so I just went with calling it religions/beliefs.
and the awnser for question 11 was really helpfull, thank you again..

anybody else willing to help?

RE: please help us out!!
Hey ill add my bit.
1. 19
2. Male
3. American
4. Celtic Polytheism (paganism)
5. B
6. Yes, allows me someone to curse at to seek aid from with out the self pitying qualities of the more mainstream religions
7. C
8. C, im generally misunderstood so preaching on a street corner probably wouldn’t help much
9. D
10. B, not that I wouldn’t introduce them to it but I feel a child is to young to grasp the concepts of religion and forcing him into one only breeds future adults taking everything much to literally rather than with the grain of salt that they should be taken with.
11. Interesting question I wasn’t always for most of my life I was atheist, I converted because of some logical ponderings and because a long serious of suffering without any form of structure to my understanding of where consciousness ends up after death.
Hope this helps pm if you need anything else
