Religion: Non-denominational Christianity - don't care for sectarian identification. Former whatever-ist.
 
Philosophical Loyalties: Pro-Secularist, anti-Nationalist and cynical Spiritualist. I believe in separation of Church and State as institutions but cannot deny the influence of religion on conventional norms and values. I'm spiritual without letting religion dominate my life. I am a fundamentalist without a fanatic streak LOL - strange I know!
 
Areas of Interest: Mysticism, Jalaludin Rumi poetry, Art, Medieval Roman civilisation (or that bastard term "Byzantines"), being an obnoxious iconoclast, free discussion of religion, politics and faith.
 
Formal Training in Related Areas: Undergraduate in Political Science, History and Commerce. Deciding whether to pursue Masters in Sustainability studies.

Religion: Catholic by only the hair on my teeth, was born into it, the little man with the big hat preaching infallibility and a unmarried priesthood is seeming less and less funnny and getting old quick.

Philosophical Loyalties: If anything, I suppose Colonel John Boyd, some of Jung, the Categorical Imperatives.... and the rest is all me.

Areas of Interest: Everything under the sun.... and above the sun.... and in the sun.... and next to it.

Formal Training in Related Areas: They give training for this stuff? Is a breathing or walking class opening up anytime soon? I've never heard of something so silly before! I'd be embarrassed to have to admit to needing training in something so natural and essential to human life.

Religion: Reform Judaism -Ashkenazi

Philosophical Loyalties: I have dabbled into Compatibilism (soft determinism). It is the individual through action that drives history, however it often repeats itself, though we probably just see that way because we often group things that don't actually connect (like constellations). My philosophical views often vary, just don't get me started on dialectical processes of Hegel, Marx, and Qutb (there are too many exceptions for them to be valid!).

Areas of Interest: all types of History, Studio Art, Politics, Music, Religion, Physical Geography, Philosophy, Historical Linguistics, Sociology, Science Fiction, HENRY CLAY!!!
Formal Training in Related Areas: Currently at the University studying History. Aiming for eventual PhD.

Religion: None. Formerly an atheist. Before that - Jewish. Before that - purely instinctive paganism.
 
Philosophical Loyalties: None. Rational thinking, intuition. Loyal to myself.
If you insist on a defining a God, then it is the universe. His will is the sum of all the wills of all living matter. In this religion I am my own priest and sole believer.
 
Areas of Interest: Historical & social philosophy. Regressive Therapy. Music. Reading. Role Playing. Welding. Experimenting with my own awareness, interactions.....
 
Formal Training in Related Areas: Not much. Well, a lot of experience with that therapy thingie. Reading, talking, thinking, was trained as a C++ programmer. Vast experience in running away from pain and seeking pleasure.
