Inb4 some edgy fedora comments
There's a Catholic Church down the street from me, and I don't mind the conservative parts that the millienial generation loves to shit on
But I'm not a sociable person by nature.
Can I make myself believe in god if I meme hard enough, /r9k/?
If you don't believe in it, it's very unlikely you ever will
However, it's not that important that you do
well, not the theological stuff anyway, like adam and eve, the guy living inside a whale, job, etc
religion is the foundation for most societies, the specific metaphors used are always different but the general values are quite similar across most cultures
Unfortunately most religious people nowadays are fundamentalists and literalists, so to fit in there you're gonna have to pretend you believe the stupid shit despite how ridiculous it sounds
Even if you don't believe he was the son of God, Jesus' teachings are good ones to live by. I would recommend going along one week to see what you think of it. Church people tend to be friendly, and you get to know everyone quite quickly.
somehow i don't think thats going to be a con for a large portion of this website's userbase
Unless you were Catholic baptized, then you have to go through RCIA, which is basically Sunday school for adults, before you can do the whole confession, communion, mass thing, so the initial investment of time may not be worth it to you, but from my experience, after that it's smooth sailing. Also, angelology and demonology involved are pretty badass, and the acceptance of science makes more sense than fundamentalshit "6 days, no dinosaurs, 4000 years of human history" nonsense
Catholics are chill in terms of church involvement (Sunday and religious holidays), the festivals are pretty fun, and people there are usually friendly. Also, the Knights of Columbus are pretty cool and you get a sword, so there's that.
If you want to go an easier path, you could join some Evangelist church, but they're usually more retarded (fundamentalists, bullshit "speaking in tongues" and "holy spirit possession", too boisterous for a shut-in, tons of young people who are "born-again" like prostitutes, whores, criminals, and general scum trying to "turn over a new leaf", not to mention more demanding of your time and involvement and potentially grill you for missing a day or two)
Forgot to mention, Catholic priests are college educated in Christian and comparative theology, and any retard who had a "vision" or born-again experience can organize an Evangelical church, meaning they may have a flawed or flat out wrong grasp of the bible and related concepts.
If you truly want to find god, read the bible or go to a more radical church. Catholic Churches are structures for normies to let out the weekend party sins
