Garlemald did nothing wrong.
My response to Das in another thread has got me thinking more and more about the fact that despite being raised Catholic, the idea of the Greek gods has spoken to me more than anything else.



And I'm not trying to be ironic or meme or anything. I have been very unsatisfied with Christian theology for a long time in my life, other religions seem completely alien to me, and atheism personally is just too....depressing. But as I looked more and more into Greek culture and more specifically their religion, it sparked an interest no other religion has, and got me looking into trying to understand it.

Sorry Napalm, but years of living under Christianity hasn't done much to make me happy. I could never feel any sort of connection to the religion.

I'm just baffled by the meme religion you chose.

You basically are atheist at this point if you're able to just jump from one religion to another, especially one as random, absurd, and unrelated to your culture as Hellenism. Not that the big three current religions aren't completely absurd.

There's nothing depressing about it. If anything, it would be extremely depressing to me if I died and found out that yes indeed there is some asshole just above the clouds making everyone's existence is a misery. It would be just that more fucked up if all this was according to a plan and at not at the least random misery. And that we're a creation of such a despicable being. Apart from that I think it's very uplifting to know life isn't about death and what's going to happen afterwards. Enjoy your life and the things you want to do, don't follow a stupid book and old bitter men telling you how you should and should not be. Especially since most of them "sin" every day and are a bunch of pedophiles.

1. I didn’t change on a whim.
2. Everything you said about living the best possible life is exactly what Hellenism teaches in conjunction with maintaining a good relation with the Gods.

It doesn’t teach about sin & redemption or the promise of something hereafter, it’s more about being happy now while also being a good person.

You basically are atheist at this point if you're able to just jump from one religion to another, especially one as random, absurd, and unrelated to your culture as Hellenism. Not that the big three current religions aren't completely absurd.

Why do I get the feeling you would be saying that no matter what I chose?

Lol I don't think I have ever discussed religion with you, and as for the site as a whole I haven't talked about it in years.

If you chose something other than Christianity I would, of course, disagree but nonetheless I would respect your decision had you chosen anything but a fucking meme religion

I dunno, the fact that it hasn't been largely practiced in millennia and the theological and philosophical depth of it essentially amounts to a piece of tissue paper.

the concept of an afterlife in christianity was directly pulled from hellenism because Paul wanted it to be more accessible to the greek/roman population he was preaching to.

i mean i like greek and roman mythology as much as the next guy but it's just that: mythology

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
Forget this Greek nonsense bro, repeat after me:
Ashadu an la ilaha illa illa-ilah, wa ashadu anna muhammadan rasul ullah.

You're welcome.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
Okay, you seem to be capable of using religion as a structure for values, but does it actually have any sway over what you believe about death and the nature of consciousness?

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
and this kids, is why you dont watch fate
