I'm a Norse Paganist/Spiritualist.
I believe in the Norse Gods to a point (though I believe their powers and stories have been greatly fantasized over the centuries), though I believe they come from another dimension/plane rather than another planet as is the traditional belief. I also believe that these other planes of existance are how are souls travel through the afterlife to eventually reach Valhalla, Helgafjell, Hel, or Folkvangr ... which plane we're destined for.

Quoting Laneys*Mama:" I'm just curious as to what the most popular "religion" is on BG. So... What religion are you? Tell ... [snip!] ... this particular belief system. If you feel the need to discuss someone else's religion and beliefs, please try to be nice! "
Non-denomination christian. My husband is jewsih.
I was raised by catholic parents who werent religious but went thru the usual morions regarding the sacraments. we didnt go to church.
as a kid i went to a couple of other churches with friends.
In college i had religious roommates and went to church with them and i loved them and going to church.
After college i switched to Presbyterian.
after moving to NYC i looked for a church and ultimately found a great one that was non-denominational.
Since getting married about 6 yrs ago i havent found a church. I plan to start looking. I've found a couple of temples that we may attend but nothing that excites me or my husband.
BUT, fellowish is important to us so we will find something soon.

Raised in an athiest/agnostic home, converted to the LDS faith when I was twelve our core values are on my profile, but in case you don't want to go look lol here are our 13 articles of faith
13 Articles of Faith
1. We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
2. We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.
3. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
4. We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
5. We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
6. We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.
7. We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
8. We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
9. We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
10. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
11. We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
12. We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
13. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul-We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
