>>26265253 >All religions are the same Incorrect in even the most general of ways. The only way they are the same is that they fit under the very general definition of religion. >Concepts may be different so they are diffrent to you >but the effects they have are interchangeable I would normally point out how that is not true ether but instead I will point out that being "interchangeable" does not make them the same by any means.
Not even a theist, just pointing out that you are being dumb and don't actually know what you are talking about.
>>26265273 I don't think it's developed enough to give a summary that would do it justice. But it's opposed to nihilism, cynicism and self-absorption, while promoting compassion, optimism and good mental health. Actual belief in a God isn't necessary, but is also welcome.
>>26265378 Ideally I think it would be more of a philosophy then a religion, providing a set of rules and beliefs that people can follow, as well as a sense of community. I'm pretty sure you could get quite a few converts among the young, dissatisfied people of the internet.
>>26265430 It's not completely original. Christianity definitely has a lot of the same ideas. It's just that I'd like members to be able to recognize each other and trust that they follow the same moral code without the manipulative nature that surrounds Christianity. You have to earn your membership. I don't really know, I literally just came up with this shit half an hour ago. I'm completely open to suggestions. Now I see how easy it is for cults to become corrupt.
>>26265535 But that's just it, if you're a terrorist then you inherently fail to keep to the ideas of your presumably peace-loving religion. I know it's a cliche to say "he's not a true christian/muslim/whatever" but it's kind of true. That's why I think you need to earn your membership and prove you truly believe, understand and practice the core beliefs of compassion etc.
>>26265498 >Something like Buddhism, >able to fit with the laws of science. Nigger you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. If you think buddhism exclusively is the western zen that tries to dance around the blatant supernatural elements in Buddhism is reverent to actual practicing Buddhist around the world then you need to learn more.
>>26265535 Obviously all religions can be corrupted. But as a whole Buddhism is pretty nonviolent and calm. It also has great appeal to many people, and there are millions who follow its teachings in monasteries around the world. Something similar to that could be very attractive to many of the youth that feel left out from society, and ultimately let them lead better lives.
>>26265645 Sure lets put our youth to great use by making them do nothing but meditate . As for the people who follow some of its teachings, the people like that who i have met are such losers its not funny.
>>26265621 Fair enough. That's part of the reason Buddhism itself wouldn't work for this new religion. Too much spiritism and superstition. But the core of Buddhism, which is arguably about stopping suffering through self mastery and awareness, is really quite pragmatic. Something along those lines-an ideology that is useful as well as making people feel as if they have a greater purpose- is what I think could work.
>>26265720 What I'm talking about is starting a completely new religion, unrelated to buddhism. I used it as an example because I believe it has a few key things that have made it very successful, and those same things can be applied to a new religion. Meditation is not one of the things I would incorporate, at least not meditation of any length.
I want to start a religion I call the Church of Psychonautica where the Earth (Terra) is worshipped as a being and creator of our lives and all life. Anything that can be made from her is free to be used. All drugs are encouraged to be used to experience differences in perception. Really I just want to do drugs with impunity and religion seems like the way to go since you are allowed to break the law for religious purposes. I just really want to do drugs
>>26265908 >Really I just want to do drugs with impunity and religion seems like the way to go since you are allowed to break the law for religious purposes. I just really want to do drugs I too want to do this just dropping acid in a giant underground religious compound
Because taking copious amounts of psychoactive drugs is a sure fire way to advance society. Though soma is tasty and better than religion. >>26266006 That's implying drugs don't hijack your mind instead of freeing it.
A topic I often think about but know I would never be able to pull off.
Mainly because 1. I don't write shit down so I often forget things and have to re-"epiphany" them all over again and 2. I have shit social skills so I cant a. come up with things relevant to what is extremely important to most normal people (interpersonal relationships) b.cant spread my ideas effectively even if I think they are good and others could benefit from them. 3. the lack of supernatural elements mean it is more of a code, and this does not appeal to most people. 4. despite the lack of supernatural elements there are still religious rituals and even "prayers". 5. does not have a name or set iconography yet
>>26266047 I think that the fact that our generation is so inclined towards atheism that a "Code" is what we need. I mean, the way things are going, we don't really have any base, widely accepted moral code outside of religion.
You don't need to come up with the entire religion yourself, m8. You can contribute like everyone else.
>>26266032 In the Church of Psychonautica use of drugs is permitted, not required. To each their own of course. However I view drugs as a way to see things differently. Obviously with addiction and whatnot all drugs aren't for everyone. We here at the Church encourage people to free their mind any way they see fit be it using a substance to help, meditation, exercise, what have you.
>>26266142 Well its the reason you're here. Also not necessarily the Earth itself but all life on it as one universal consciousness sort of idea thing. I want to do drugs under the guise of it being for religious purposes but I also think I can come up with a legit religion in the process.
>>26266120 >Being overly reliant on a leader in a religion doesn't seem like a good idea. A central figure seems to screw it up at one point or another. It is necessary for it to spread and keep a level of orthodoxy. No leader means fuck tons of random splits and wild interpretations. You want, at least in the early days, some level of order and unity. A central figure that has final say in what is and is not correct in a new religion is needed. A alternative is a small "elite" counsel that has final say. But you need SOMEONE to have the final say or it will devolve into special snowflake new age bullshit.
I was coming up with a religion for a game. It revolved around the idea that all human beings were the same consciousness and that we were only "different" due to our environment. Basically you and i were the same being but experiencing life from an alternate perspective, we are essentially clones that grew up in different continents. On the subject of an afterlife, you'd continue to exist via everyone else. Since you in essence are consciousness itself, you would still be around so long as living things were around and conscious. you'd just be unaware of what you really were.
>>26266233 That may work for a game world where that could actually be true in lore, but I know too much about natural differences in biology and things related to genetics for that not to sound dumb to me if you tried to apply the same logic to the real world.
>>26266325 In the real world you could see it as: we all have the same "soul" and it's experiencing life through the mechas that are our bodies.
Think clones of you that just randomly pop into the planet but they don't know they're you and they look infinitely different from you, only thing that is similar is that you're all the same "soul" or being or consciousness at the mercy of existence's randomness.
>>26266325 You could talk about soul or life energy. Not too supernatural to mamy people. However the religion would have to have more details because sofar the concept doesn't influence people in everyday life. It should somehow solve the question of suffering and happines imo
What if we all were Gods but in disguise as humans. Before we were born we wrote the script to life and blocked our memories to make life more immersive. Some of us stayed behind life, to orchestrate it all and keep the code running, while some of us are playing this immersive video game, but in reality it's just us, no god in a christian sense.
There are certain techniques in which we can communicate with these source coders of reality, our former selves, but it's a hard thing to do cause they don't think in language like we do, only in high math, as they are in a realm outside of time and space, and not really alive, but kind of like a mathematical concept so complex it became conscious. If we want to communicate with the source coders of reality we need to do so on a symbolic level, this is where it gets complicated though..
Now while living, we are constantly watched by these coders of reality, bets are made on how we do in life, and the spectators even form fan clubs around you, if you're an interesting person. After you die, if you have enough fans that know how to code life, they will code an awesome afterlife for you where you can have whatever you want with them reading your will and every wish, before you can even form the thought. Or you can join the team and become a spectator of life yourself, or you can become something else entirely something that can't be comprehended by the living yet so no use to talk about it.
But basically in this religion we'd worship ourselves as gods and use a lot of computer based metaphors to make sense of things, as we are pretty much living in an mmorpg running on a quantum computer (or so I was told).
