so i played a LOT of quakeworld teamfortress and at one point flew to NY for a lan party. There were about 30 of us and we'd all been playing together for 2-3 years and someone brought something that no one else had ever seen: an actual legit installation CD for Quake that he'd purchased with real money.

religion is cool when it's either (1) entirely personal spirituality or (2) giant community events.

the middle is where it gets weird.

but with #2 the utility seems to be in its social aspect, not its spiritual one. idk, Iím not religious, so my perspective is limited, but iíve heard a bunch if times from the faithful that they enjoy the sense of community that comes along with worship, but you can have that without the god part.

i can see how that might be the case. i try to learn about the rest of the world but when it comes down to it my personal experience is essentially monocultural.

shintoism, depending on your definition I guess

waheguru in sikhism isnt very similar to the abrahamic concept of god. gods in taosim are usually but not always more akin to spirits than gods. same with most shinto poo poo. uhhhh jainism pretty much fits the bill too but some texts will call enlightened being "gods" but it's not really the same

and buddhism as you said

that's off the top of my head

do these things have dogma though? thatís where i see problems. e.g., if you donít believe what some other says you should and how you should do it, then youíre doing it wrong.

e: at that point my hypothetical religion reeks of human construct, which I donít think is the point.

sure they do. but everything humans touch has that from engineering disciplines to musical scales to how species are named. dogma is a cognitive shortcut to end inquiry and can be applied to any bit of knowledge

unitarian universalism shouldn't even really be called a church imo. i had a friend who was UU for a while and she said that there was always someone complaining that whatever they were into wasn't being properly respected and/or whatever the church was doing didn't respect their beliefs. e.g. a cranky old atheist man in the back who would boo every time the minister mentioned god.

it's just a social club for a particular kind of liberal
