looking for a 'religion' to call my own

:iconvalandore:
Hello all, I'll keep this kind of short and to the point. I was raised christian but I do not believe in one being creating the universe. I am agnostic because I don't want to say I know for a fact there is no god/godesses. I don't like how some things in religious writing are unrealistic (like the whole story of adam and eve), but I guess that's how many religions started, so I guess I have to get used to it. I enjoy science a little too much.Okay by now you've noticed this isn't short at all, but I've looked very briefly at pagans because of the connection to nature and I like the concept of getting energy from yourself (self relying). Open to other suggestions. Thank you

Taoism definitely fits the bill here.

If you must have a religion (I don't see why simple Agnostic Atheism wouldn't mesh with your views), I would suggest looking into Universal Unitarianism.

That has to be the most theologically free school to ever come out of western organized religion. Seriously.

*Unitarian Universalism. Not that it matters.

Try catholicism, its by far most personal religion i can think of. Everything with catholicism is on a one to one basis.

Oh, there isn't much religions that support agnosticism and atheism. But first, check whether you need religion or not. If you find you don't really need religion, then don't have one. That's completely viable option, and probably the best. You then set your own beliefs, which is most probably better than adopting a pre-packet package.

Do you just want to be part of a religion just so you have a label? Because from the sound of it your just trying to find a title, not a god.

also dont be a pagan. Just dont.

You don't need to find a set of pre-packaged beliefs so that you can adopt the label. Just find out what's true and believe that.Much better than deliberately duplicating other people's mistakes.

Out of curiosity, may I ask what you find most disagreeable with Christianity?
