Sam here, looking to start a serious discussion. This is a sensitive topic, keep it respectful. I am interested in the religion(s) and morals of people around here. What do you believe in as a faith, as a philosophy, or as morals, and why? For me personally, I used to be atheist. This was because I found no concrete evidence to back up any religions I had researched at that time. Then I came across Buddhism, and after looking into it properly, I found that the teachings and morals behind it are ones I've had for a while, eg. the idea of rebirth(?), and the idea that there are no deities. I have found its guidelines to be useful, worthwhile and helpful. Meditation has helped me solve stress I've had, and given me a deeper understanding to life and being as a whole. Now I would like to know about you. What are your personal experiences with religion and philosophy, and why? If you do not want to post for whatever reason, then don't. Only post if you are comfortable with doing so. If you are offended by anything someone posts, talk it through with that person in PM instead of causing a post argument. Only post if you have something worthwhile to post. Don't bother with one line replies, unless it is answering someone's question.
