    And doesn't the concept of "trying out" religions defeat their purpose?

        Since practically every religion follows an universalist approach. I.e. Roman Catholicism/Shia Islam/Russian Orthodoxy is the only correct religion and everything else is misguided devil worship.
        If this claim to an universal correct truth holds true, then why are there so many different religious beliefs and how come that so few (globally speaking) only follow the correct way?
        I just don't buy it. And the "search" for a religion that "fits" you personally seems just hollow behind this background.

          wrong

          >everything else is misguided devil worship
          this is only the abrahamic viewpoint

          >If this claim to an universal correct truth holds true, then why are there so many different religious beliefs and how come that so few (globally speaking) only follow the correct way?
          Only a problem if you starts with the assumption of divine revelation as require, otherwise is just the same question as "why X group manage to figure out Y problem but Z group didn't" you have in all other areas of knowledge

          >And the "search" for a religion that "fits" you personally seems just hollow behind this background.
          Here are you projecting and assuming that is just looking for something that "fits" you instead of looking for something that makes sense and works

            Abrahamic religions are the big ones. How does Hinduism tackle the issue that there is a "master god" that exists besides their pantheon?
            >"why X group manage to figure out Y problem but Z group didn't"
            The problem is that "Y problem" is so vague and not fixed. What could be an issue to a roman catholic isn't necessarily an issue for a hindi.
            >instead of looking for something that makes sense and works
            I.e. something that fits your current circumstances in life - which are with all due likelihood subject to change.

      what made you become an atheist?

      If atheism is a religion, this makes it equally as viable a position to take as any other religion

        Yes, and then we can start comparing differences
        Any religion that isn’t atheism has a theology or philosophy that explains a universal morality; atheists either rely on other philosophies or they have no morality at all

          atheism is just an application of naturalism. Its a physical evidence based belief system, as opposed to other religions that are metaphysical and faith based instead.

    Not tried but basically just contemplated all important ones. Even Mandaeism Zoroastrianism etc. It's all meaningless and man-made.

      this is what stops me from committing to a religion. even if the philosophy feels ‘correct’ im stopped by the thought ‘wait, some random guy just came up with this’

    born into a "catholic" family, but parents were basically agnostics going through the motions. They had me in catholic church school but I wasn't taught anything and the whole thing was a big waste of time.
    I was a fedora in highschool simply because all of my friends were fedoras. Then I became a christian, and now finally I'm asatru. So 3 religions I guess if you count atheism.

    I fluctuated between Islam and atheism for most of my childhood. I started thinking about God more after reading the Bible. For some reason when I read the Quran again it just felt like it clicked perfectly. After a crisis of faith I became solidly muslim. I've been attached to it for 5 years or so now. Even though I was born into a muslim family in a muslim country I don't consider myself to have been one up until that point.

    Was atheist for almost all my life but at 33 as I was buying some X-mas gifts for family, some were various religious items and I found myself mocking the idea of religion again in my head.

    Then I had a moment of self-reflection, why am I being an ass about something that others like? My brain try to justify the idea that region is a waste of time and that time could be spent better and in more productive ways. Till I hit a kind of paradox: If religion is a waste of time and especially in the past a massive waste of limited resources then where are the successful civilizations that are non-religious?(Successful civ has to at least have writing)
    Without building temples or churches you could have made productive buildings and all the people that would be preaching the word would actually be working. So where the frick are they?

    I wanted to fully give in and give are real try so major Abrahamic Religions were out as I couldn't believe fully in an all unlimited power that is all knowing and all seeing. I know too many child cancer and other deaths to accept that.

    Researched for a bit and settled on Norse/Gernamic most of my ancestors come from the area but more importantly I was drawn to the outlook on fate. Fate maybe set but the way you get there is important and to even fight against it is something the gods do.
    Oðen knows he is fated to die at Ragnarok but he is fighting and searching for knowledge to find anyway to if not change but maybe postpone it for as long as he can. He knew his son was fated to die but he and his wife Frigg tried their best to keep that from happening and when it did happen both their grief and rage was extremely relatable.

    Been fully in it for 4 years now and it has surprised the hell out of me. Placebo or real it has been a great experience, holding a Blót feels like connecting and venting out the things I need help working on and are lacking.

    >TLDR: atheist tries old religion and is surprised as how good it is.

      Well because this is an overly simplified statement. Early christianity was very scholastic (still is) and continued many roman institutions. As such the early christian apparatus became vital for the successful creation, expansion and maintenance of many states - a trend that continued.
      But this has less to do with the teachings of christianity and more so with the adaptation of institutions by the church.
      Also interesting that you chose for norse & germanic paganism, considering they were civilized and adopted christianity, considering your stipulation of successful civilizations.

    I experimented with several esoteric ones in middle school but am now non-religious. Sometimes I wonder if I would be happier if I could believe in something.
