Religion??

I've never really believed in God; at least the God most Christians believe in, but lately I've been thinking about it and I wonder if there is a religion out there that I might like. I'm very much into how nature works. Most people would view a new birth as a miracle of God's work; I on the other hand feel it's a marvelous act of nature. So I'm wondering if there's a religion geared more towards living a life appreciating the beauty of nature. This is probably confusing lol; hopefully someone will understand!

  • Wiccan maybe? I'm Buddhist so I could be wrong but I believe that Wiccans are all about nature.

    Good luck with your search!

  • For most people, this is pretty dead on, or at least gets them in the right neighborhood:

  • Many Pagan religions are nature-based.
    Druidism, shamanism, Native-American religions. Check them all out.
    Wicca is semi-nature-based, but they believe in a God and Goddess...so they are also deity-based.

    If you have a MySpace, check out these groups, called The Pagan Circle and Pagan Phoenix. People there would love to help you out with whatever questions you may have :)

  • Many Unitarian Universalist congregations have a Pagan/Earth-based group, and show great respect for liberty, justice, and the environment. The seven principles of UU can be found here: http://www.chaliceuu.org/ourBeliefs/7Principles.htm Within UUism, you have the freedom to explore and build your own theology and beliefs in a supportive and encouraging community of fellow seekers.
    I personally am a pantheist eclectic Pagan (not Wiccan.) As others have said, there are many nature-based paths out there and blessings to you on your search!

  • Wow NP! That's cool.

    1. Mahayana Buddhism (100%)
    2. Theravada Buddhism (92%)

    These were my two and I practice a mix of the two.

    Thanks for sharing.
