There are a number of different topics I have been thinking about as of late. I've been moderately involved with the two "alternative" religious related student groups on my campus over the last couple of years: Atheists and Pagans.

 

The Atheist club includes free-thinkers and does not limit itself to classifications of who might be a "true" atheist and how they display that to the public. The Pagan club is an alliance of "alternative" religions, though there is a focus on earth-based nature type worship.

 

I was raised LDS christian, which I rejected or at least regarded with strong skepticism very early on. At my earliest convenience [college], I left. I don't know if there was some queer aspect of my identity that made me disbelieve or my scholarly personality that maintained my reluctance. Either way, I was done with all religion for a while. All religion.

 

Now I'm trying to determine whether I am an atheist outright...or just open to the pieces of truth that might exist in a number of different locations.

Right now I identify as pantheist...with a focus on the figurative worship of science, logic, and rationality.

I actually await the day that we are able to accept and wholly "worship" the sciences that make our lives so great.

I'm not even sure what 'worship' is anymore, other than dancing like a fool in an attempt to make an invisible super-being laugh and take pity on you.
