  • I'm not sure... I think there is for the most part people would just believe in a 'higher power' No real specific ties.

  • I believe none of them would because every religion has had bloody wars and moments where it questioned its own followers and people whom did not believe as they did. So I would pick ....

  • This is going to sound arrogant, but personally I think the majority of beliefs would follow similar beliefs to those I have now - Eclectic, Organic, Lifestyle based rather that church taught. Religions have always molded and altered one another as peoples moved around, advanced and melded together... And my beliefs don't follow ANY one teaching, they are rather inclusive and eclectic... Which is honestly what I think we would have.

    This, to a point. People worshipped whatever combination of deities they chose. Usually they were from the same pantheon, because those were all they knew, but it wasn't uncommon to adpot one from another pantheon if they learned of it from a traveler. That's what most original Christians were - they weren't monotheist, they were polytheists who heard of Jesus and included him along with the rest of the deities they already worshipped. It wasn't until centuries later they were forced to worship him and him alone.

  • I believe a form of Paganism would be the average normal religious beliefs system, if things were
    different...
    As it does now, it would have it's demons or branches ppl would follow even those who would follow
    one deity only...

    As Sabrina simply put...Eclectic, Organic, Lifestyle based
