Pastafarianism.

Okay, maybe not.

I now understand what they meant when those rude young atheist said "Oh you believe in the flying spaghetti monster?"

Everything except for Wiccan. I also didn't mark paganism because it makes me think of LaVeyan Satanism, which is about as interesting as Ayn Rand after she's contracted rabies. And I've already played BioShock.

Technically none of these religions are 'foreign', since there are Americans/Westerners who practice all of these religions.

 

But Judaism has always interested me on a deep level.

I just said paganism, but what I mean by paganism is ancient greek/roman/norse/egyptian religion/gods. Granted, the vast majority of my exposure to these things is through the lens of western entertainment, and as such my understanding of them is probably not all that accurate, but they all seem so cool.

I particularly favour the idea of the gods walking among humans, having various human characteristics and siring demigod heroes and such. Their propensity to be involved in awesome stories and grant powers and magical artefacts to mortals makes them incredibly intriguing to me.

When I called it foreign, I more meant, it is foreign to you, like you do not know a ton about it but you want to learn more.

Ah thank you.

This is my favorite to study, too.
