        Siddhartha Gautama was just a man, albeit one who had achieved perfect knowledge of reality. Buddhism has many deities, and the Buddha preached to many of them and converted them to Buddhism.

        Buddhist believe (rightly, I think) that a Buddha is a perfected being. Christians believe (rightly, I think) that Jesus is a perfect being, without the -ed on the end of the word perfect. There are gods in the Pali Canon of Buddhist Sutras.

    I worship the sun and the moon as twin aspects of the maternal world deity. The sun goddess is nurturing, warm, empathetic, expressive, joyful. Her passionate love is so intense it scorches the skins of its objects. The sun is the life-giver. The moon goddess is cold, apathetic, calm, but illuminating, erudite, philosophical, reflective. Her temperate love educates and guides, but cannot provide life. The moon is the mind-giver. When the sun rises, life blooms. When the moon rises, the secrets of the universe are revealed to us.

    Every morning I wake up 20 minutes or so before dawn, I make sure to set my alarm based on what time google says dawn is every day. I get some stretching in, have a quick breakfast, then prepare my little ritual at dawn. I pour the water which I leave out in a little saucer during the matching dusk ritual over my head, recite my prayer to the sun goddess, swap the icons on my shrine, and leave a flower (which represents my thankfulness for the life which the sun gives us) in the little saucer. I have one saucer for night and one for day, I made them my self out of modelling clay.

    Do I really believe that there is a sun/moon goddess? No, but this personal religion fills a little hole in my psyche where I feel religion should be. It gives my actions meaning, provides structure, ritual, purpose. During the day I feel a pressure to go outside and stay active because doing otherwise would offend the sun mother. I try to embody the astral aspects in their respective times. Joyful, carefree, nurturing during the day. Calm, reflective, analytical during the night. I'm no fanatic though, these are just ideals I strive for. My major is analytical and I study during the day, that's no problem . Sometimes I go out with friends and I can't do my ritual at dusk, that's ok. I do it when I get home. It makes my life more meaningful and myself a better person, I think.

    Once there was nothing except the self existent, tri personal being. In a series of logical moments he created everything that exists: the universe, the earth, the land and sea, plants and animals, abstractions and time, and spiritual beings. At the climax of creation he sat in the divine council among his angels and made mankind in his image. As an all powerful being his creation occurs by speech, and the design of the universe is as a temple in which he is to be known and worshiped.
    Man was placed in a paradise where there was no sin, but the world was corrupted when the first man committed the first sin. We call this event the fall. Adam and Eve were banished from the garden paradise and cursed, but with the promise of restoration.
    Generations pass and the nations of men continually struggle with sin and come under divine judgment. God appointed certain spiritual beings to lead each of the nations, but they too rebelled against the self existent God. God determined to reclaim the nations himself.
    He chose the lineage of the Hebrews: the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the twelve tribes, ultimately pointing towards a future king and savior of this lineage. This nation was chosen precisely because it was small and insignificant, a perfect candidate to demonstrate the supremacy of the creator God above all rebellious lesser deities. He revealed himself to this nation, made them a people of his own, all with an eye to claiming every nation. He revealed his divine name, "I Am", referring to his priority over creation. He revealed how he wants to be known and worshiped, not as if he has needs like the lesser gods, but as a father. This nation was still rebellious. They disobeyed him, they worshiped other gods, they killed his prophets.

      Providentially, at the opportune moment in human history when language and trade approached a peak, the father sent the prophesied messiah into the world. The savior was in fact God become man, condescended to us for our sake. He came in poverty, performed miracles, taught divine truth, healed the sick, called disciples, rebuked false teaching. His own people who he came to save hated him and had him executed in a gruesome way, unknowingly fulfilling prophecy. On the third day after his crucifixion he performed the ultimate act to demonstrate divinity by resurrecting from the dead. He then commissioned his apostles and built his church, literally a "called out" people.

      My religion is the practice of this church. We believe we are fully equipped by an unchanging, preserved text of scripture for our ministry. The ministry of the church is obedience to God in sharing the good news of salvation (personal and corporate) to all nations, that is, engaging in God's reclamation of the nations. Ancillary to this are general acts of grace: the arts, humanitarianism, education, medicine, which we believe demonstrates god's glory. The third person of the trinity indwells is on our mission.
      My sect of this religion finds it's origin at the start of the modern era, when a bloated church establishment was corrupt and teaching falsehood, just like the pre-christ nation. We take the regulative role of scripture more seriously, which looks like purer worship, a higher emphasis on scripture and the gospel, and more closely following the model of the early church. A good litmus test is how and whether a given church sings the psalms.

    I believe the KJV is the perfect word of God and that salvation is a free gift to all who believe in Jesus Christ and his death, burial and resurrection. If you don’t believe in Jesus or you add your works to your belief about salvation, you burn in Hell forever. So most religions in your graphic there.

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Begotten Son, born of the Father before all Ages.
    I believe He came down from Heaven, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. I believe that, for our sake, He was crucified under Pontius PIlate, suffered, died, was buried, descended into Hell, and rose from the dead on the Third day in accordance with the Scriptures, then Ascended into Heaven. I believe He will come again to judge the living and the dead, and that He will establish an Eternal kingdom. I believe in the Holy Church founded by Jesus Christ, on the rock of his Apostle, Peter, and the rest of His Apostles, the Communion of Saints within the body of Heaven, and the Resurrection of the dead on the Day of Judgement, and eternal life in the World to come.

        >Are Sikhs Panentheists?
        That is an accurate way to look at things. The Sikh conception of God is "a panentheistic interpretation of the Abrahamic God"
        >Are Sikhs more universalist or fundamentalist?
        Universalist
        >Do Sikhs believe in some sort of Afterlife?
        Reincarnation followed by eventual merger with the One God
        >What is Sikh morality like?
        Based around combatting the Five Thieves: Anger, Lust, Pride, Greed, Ego, Attachment

    Religions are outdated anyway and the future of spirituality lies in NDEs as NDEs are irrefutable proof of life after death, because anyone can have them if they come close to and survive death. And they are so undeniably real to those who have them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U00ibBGZp7o

    As this NDEr described their NDE:

    >"I saw how life never ends. I remembered the process of reincarnation is endless, wonderful and truly eternal. I witnessed my own spiritual evolution and saw that I had existed long before this present incarnation (where I am now a male human). For me, watching the process of living life, after life, after life unfold, was mind-blowing! I undeniably observed that I had lived an innumerable amount of lives. My NDE clearly showed me that these bodies (we now inhabit) are not the first and only time we have existed! I saw that our soul and spirit is ancient! I also observed that there is no such thing as death."

    And importantly, even dogmatic skeptics have this reaction, because the NDE convinces everyone:
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/mysteries-consciousness/202204/does-afterlife-obviously-exist

    So anyone would be convinced if they had an NDE, we already know this, no one's skepticism is unique. And the book in pic related is known to convince even hardened skeptics that there is an afterlife.

    >muh brain chemistry

    Neuroscientists are convinced by NDEs too. What do skeptics think they understand that neuroscientists do not?

    >muh DMT causes it

    Scientifically refuted already, and NDErs who have done DMT too say that the DMT experience, while alien and really cool and fun, was still underwhelming to the point of being a joke when compared to the NDE.

      No they're just western atheists who feel like life has no meaning so they are searching for a belief system to give them some. But they don't want to do the traditional western religions either because they hate "muh gays" if they are leftist or they believe those religions are the one that made society shit if they are rightists.

          Eh you are correct but I find it more probable that they are either lying or coping than actually have looked at the evidence and come to a conclusion that this random eastern (or western for that matter) religion is the correct one. Of course I'm assuming that most of them are young western males, given this is Oyish, but I would be willing to change my mind if that assumption is wrong.

        Atheist here. I believe life has meaning and I have a belief system which gives my life meaning. I'm not looking for a belief system to give my life meaning, since I already have such a system.

        As for religion, I don't think about whether it made society good or not. I think about whether it's true, and I don't think it's true.

        I suppose if a religion was theoretically great and produced amazing benefits then maybe I could live with it, despite it being false. But in today's world people expect you to be genuine and live by beliefs that you actually think are true. So I go with atheism because that's what I believe is true.
