So I've been struggling for a while to come up with a name to call my religion.  Everyone else has one picked out it seems and I'm still trying to figure mine out.  I never know quite what to call myself.  I usually say something like "I love all religions...but at the same time hate them all too..."


What I believe in is ever evolving and it can change with the wind if I encounter someone with new information.  I really like the Buddhist idea that information should be passed through your internal justification for it to be right now matter who said it or where it is written.


Basically, I am asking for advice on what to call myself or any ideas that anyone may have.  How would you describe someone who could change their beliefs in an instant when given proper evidence and reason?




P.S. I am not starting a new religion or anything. I just reread my post.

What I meant is in discussions with friends and such. I hope that clears it up a bit.

I can't think of a good name, Nick. But if someone asks you about your views on religion, you might respond by saying "Be careful or my carma will run over your dogma!" Enjoy!

Good for you, bro.
Since it seems somewhat "fickle" (in a good way), you could refer to YOUR p.o.v. as Nickisms... Just first thing off my head.
Robert Brezsny said something about our collective humanity eventually achieving 7+ billion different religions. And THEN we'll be free...
Sort of hearkens back to your former post regarding spiritual evolution of humans.
Words are particular. I prefer spiritual over religious. Uninstitutionalized. Less political.
Old-fashioned but untraditional. Ritual over tradition. Subject to CHANGE, modification or adaptation.
Maybe you can just scramble or mix up letters from your name. Shouldn't matter as there's no right or wrong. It's your thing.
Unless you're trying to get others to join? Careful! Read Rogue Messiahs by Colin Wilson before starting your own cult!
