I had been meaning to do a post for awhile here to follow up the other one, on what specifically each of us believes, because all our spiritual/religious beliefs are as different as everything else about us – the only thing we really think the same on is sociopolitical issues. However, I (Kagi) ended up writing a very long comment here on an atheist blog which attempted to summarise our collective beliefs, that is, roughly what we believe as the All, the Tiramorn Narmacil collective.
So I will repost that comment here, and do a followup later with more detail about each of us individually. Having come from a fundamentalist background, and having expressed ourself on the blog in the past as ‘Christian’, I just want to emphasise that our beliefs have been growing and changing as we also grow and change, and having given up on trying to find any common ground with our family, there’s no point in using conciliatory language anymore. We no longer consider ourself Christian, partly because we feel triggered by sharing the label with people who hate us, and partly because it just isn’t true.
We’re universalist, really, and retain some xtian beliefs as part of that, but I’m pretty sure most ‘Christians’, including our science-denying, queer-unaffirming family, would consider us heretics. We don’t care. All we seek is truth.
So, here is the comment:
