I was loosely raised Methodist and stopped going to church around 10 years old. Beyond that, what Rarechild said pretty much sums up my present views on spirituality. I feel most connected to the divine in those Zen moments where there is nothing but the Now. I tend to view most organized religion as a centuries old control technique to keep the masses from eating each other and continue to pay their taxes... and produce subsequent generations of faith based zombies. That said, I have seen members of many faiths commit genuine acts of kindness in the name of their God, which is pretty cool. So, to sum up... Organized religion (on the whole) = bad. Spirituality and a connection to a higher power (that we will obviously never fully understand) = the natural way of things.
