Quote# 1527

about 1 1/2 years ago i expermented with many different religions. heres what i felt and found---- budhisim---it gave me some high understanding and some insight on wisdom but i didnt feel loved or even accepted by anyone. i didnt feel like there was anybody out in the universe (little gods) islam---total waist of time. it felt very evil. i wanted to hurt people and i was depressed. satanism---it felt exciting at first but i got more and more depressed and felt like my soul was dead. things happened. i saw things fly thru my room. i had nighmares everynight. i heard voices. christianit---i was happy. i felt loved. altho its not the funnest religion it is worth it for the peace u feel. i felt a good presence.

You sound mentally unstable.

I'll give credit for exploring other religions, provided it's a legit statement and not just some lie for Jeebus.

Choosing among religious fictions is apparently much like buying a car.

You experimented with different religions! What does that even mean?

"I think I'll believe in Allah today... oh no, this feels very evil,, I'd better start believing in Vishnu instead..."

It would appear that this guy simply has no personal identity at all, and needs other people to define who he is for him; hence his apparent tendency to become entirely alligned with whatever religious environment he places himself in.

This could simply be a particularly bad and protracted identity crisis, though, and the fact that he felt able to reject most of the stuff he tried does indicate some finite amount of self definition. It's just that he seems, tragically, to utterly lack the intellectual capacity, imagination or volition to invent himself, and is instead apparently trying to find a ready-made personality for himself from the various, impossible ideals most religions tend to prescribe for humanity.

I hope my interpretation is wrong; if it isn't, then this really is incredibly sad.

That bit about satanism and supernatural activity, however, suggests either mental illness and hallucinations, or yet another of those annoying fundies who makes bullshit claims about having formerly been members of various groups they now denounce to try and discredit them and gain authority for their proselytising.

By "I experimented with many different religions" and all the rest he means:

"I read something about them on wikipedia but it was too complicated and I couldnt understand lol, so I went back to christianism where the local pastor will kindly explain all I have to believe and interpret from the holee scriptures".

That text hurts my eyes. Please learn some grammar and spelling before you write.

In order to feel loved, you need to spread love around you, you know. If you show others respect, I bet they are going to accept you.

What does your waist have to do with Islam? And why did Islam make you angry? It's rather similar to Christianity, actually. I have a friend who's Muslim, and she's one of the kindest, gentlest, most giving persons I know.

What has Buddhism ever done to you?

Nothing. That's right nothing.

Why didn't you try anything else? Shinto seems very interesting, and so does Native American spirituality. Hinduism as well. Personally I'm happy as a Pagan, but you probably thought that was synonymous with Satanism, which it isn't. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Sounds like your standard lies-for-Jeebus to me.
