I was practically raised Christain, (baptist to be exact) and now I have no clue what my religion is. I have been into a lot of mythologies, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, you know, that kinda th8ng. And one thing Ive noticed, they all have at least one simuliar story. I also believe and aliens and other forces, such as ghosts and such. But the thing is, through out mythologies and all modern religions, I have somehow come to believe in all and none at the same time. Due to simuliar stories between mythologies and religions, I have come to the conclusion that they are ALL true in there own way. You know , different representations of the same truth. My qeustion is, am I the only one out there with these beliefs? Is there a name for this belief? If you think the same stuff, please let me know! This would be a good debate topic in my opinion.

I think it's just sounds like a form of paganism or polytheism. Many of the religions of the past were created out of the proximity of people to other religions, leading them to take inspiration and giving other religions a basis for their beliefs. This is seen in the similarities between Roman polytheism, Egyptian polytheism and Greek polytheism. In a way, they are all part of a sort of Mediterranean polytheism, which I guess could be a name for your religion.

I don't believe any of this by the way but I think it's interesting that you've adopted such beliefs

Alright thank you. Can it really be considered a religion? And are there others out there like me?

Yes Our natural disposition is to believe in God, we are not born taking ourselves as God like many do when they grow older. In truth behind all the misconceptions about Islam it's the only monotheist religion submitting to the will of our Creator nothing less , there is feelings you cant describe when you pray make pilgrimage etc not like any other feeling that iv'e heard of from friends from other religions who seem to backtrack a lot and if you take time to learn Arabic and read God addressing mankind you will feel that you can no longer deny the truth , any questions feel free to ask, I pray sincerely God guides you to Islam the truth ameen.

Maybe there are a few thousand people out there at best with exclusively paganistic beliefs but I'd imagine a good chunk of them are nutters. I know of quite a lot of people though who've adopted their own religious beliefs, even if they're part of a denomination but I can't say I've ever met anyone exactly like you. Even within denominations though, finding someone with the exact same beliefs is uncommon. Everyone has their personal beliefs and you should try talking to people in your nearby religious centres if you're interested in learning about other people's. Never know, might find someone like-minded.

Please tell me that this is a joke. We're in the 21st century ..

Due to simuliar stories between mythologies and religions, I have come to the conclusion that they are ALL true in there own way. You know , different representations of the same truth.
Do you have any evidence, or is this just a feeling?

Is there a name for this belief?
Superstition.

This would be a good debate topic in my opinion.
Without evidence, it's not going to be much of a debate.

As for the stories, yes I have proof. For an example, read the story of Abraham and the time he almost sacrficed his son, and the story of the golden ram from Greek mythology. Then compare.

Origginally, the Romans did not have exact gods. What they believed in was more of spirits kind of. It was not until the Roman Empire took over the Greeks did these forces start to have bodies and names and such.

I hope you realise the difference between religious 'truth' and the definition of truth we use in everyday life e.g. it my belief that australia exists.

I was asking about your conclusions. Stories being similar doesn't prove anything.

Believe what you want, just know that most people are going to find you, at best, wacky.

Yeah, I believe I the difference pretty well. The difference is that most things debated on constantly like religion are not widely considered truth, and that stuff like Australia exists is true, there is no possible way to deny that. Right?
