    In regards to general religions and traditions of them...I find the most fascinating religions are agnostic ones. I do like Buddhism, but I also always love the stories of the Nordic mythology to the point I own a copy of one of its works: the Poetic Edda. The stories are enchanting to me, and the concept of different worlds bound together by a tree of life is pretty neat. And it's an Ash tree. Ash trees are my namesake [offline name: Ashley], so that makes me happy too.

    In general, I consider myself an 'eclectic pagan' of sorts. I'm spiritual and believe that all creatures of the world from trees to people and everything in between has a spirit. I don't believe in hell [I do keep that from my Judaism studies as a kid. No hell! Yay!]. But...My idea of heaven isn't really existent either. It might exist but...I think this world is the only notable one to me. I don't believe in a god per say, but more an eclectic group of more powerful spirits.

    Oh. I also do like one or two traditions/stories from Judaism: Sukkot [the harvest festival, basically] and Chanukah. The story behind Chanukah is lovely, even if i deem it insane. And hey, eight days of presents? Who doesn't want that in a commercialistic society? Though...I wish tradition didn't say the youngest has to do things like light the candles...Pyrophobia doesn't mix well with being the youngest...

    But honestly I like anyone regardless of their religion as long as they're tolerant and don't shove it down my throat. But if they use their religion to be insensitive/intolerant to those who either don't believe or conform to your 'moral compass' [such as anti semitism, anti-LGBT, etc]...I'm more likely to want to knock you upside the skull or kill you off in a short story to ease my temper. ^^;
    I don't believe in hell either!

    I think that my personal views differ a little from my overall sense of history and culture that surrounds them. It is a tough one though because there is so much there but a lot of times it makes you wonder why for everything,
