Actually I was quoting Daenerys Targaryen. :lol:

I actually believe in all Gods, and some I like less than others like the Christ God for example. But that's just me. :D

I don't think most AS people are religious and many of them including myself believe in science until proven otherwise.
Although the bible got many things right historically, confirmed only from the "historical books"/"prophets" of the old testament onwards, conveniently all the "god"/supernatural related stuff cannot be proved and is probably either allegorical, fictitious or can be simply attributed to natural phenomena

I'm a rare breed of Aspie who believes in the Occult. And you know why? Because the Ancients and those in power didn't just believe in this stuff, they were living it. If one actually pays attention to the minor hidden symbology in everything from the Goddess Columbia being created out of 'Virgin'ia and 'Mary'land (Virgin Mary) to the roses of Yorkshire and Lancaster forming the 5 petal Tudor Rose that looks like a pentagram one can see how this stuff was connected and incorporated into everything in our governments. 8)

I know nothing of the Occult and couldn't make sense of your writing in terms of being enlightened in any way, but I respect anyone's right to believe in anything. In fact, I find it interesting and essential that we as humans have a variety of views. The world would be boring if everyone worshipped the same Krishna/Allah/Stalin/Spaghetti Monster etc.

Well before shutting your mind completely at least allow me a chance to 'enlighten' you so that you at least have an idea of what I am talking about. :flower:

Atheism!

If I had to pick one, definitely Taoism or a more philosophical sect of Buddhism. Abrahamics are laughable.

The meme religions like Satanism or FSM are cringe, very 2010.

I don't think Abrahamic faiths work in us. Their personal God and their belief rigidity don't fit into an Asperger mindset.

But I wonder, do you know a religious tradition that fits better to us? I am curious about the Eastern approaches.



Roman Catholicism helped me out a lot! And we have a priest? Can you believe it, my goodness? Look up, Matthew P. Schneider!

Religions that show the most spirituality. Jesus was rejected and messed with by a lot of people kinda like a lot of us. He was very gifted though like us even if we cannot match up to his level of power. Also he came into this world as a special (in a great way) individual like us too. So this is my opinion.

I can't remember if I wrote here already, but I think Buddhism is great. Specifically Zen or Theravada. Maybe Tibetan too. With that said, it depends on the person. Shrug.

I've always found atheism to be the simplest option. No need to keep track of deities, or semi-deities, or rituals, or things you're supposed to do (or not do) for religious reasons.

After all, what was the saying? "Out of 3000 religions, everyone's an atheist about 2,999 of them. What's one more?"

Yes I strongly suspect that most religions were designed for people who didn't see much of the rest of the world, rather like the social rules of a particular locality (and I also suspect that their religious beliefs are constructed from their social mores rather than it being the other way round like they often say they are). Inward-looking societies with no interest in other cultures often seem to think their own ways are the only valid ways, because they've never seen anything different. But anybody who travels or looks around the globe notices that there are many different sets of social rules that seem to work as well as any rules do, and they may begin to wonder, "why would the place I happened to be born in be the only one that's got it right?"

Exactly, I just disbelieve in one more (less?) god than monotheists. :nerdy:
