Religion: "Other"

From: United States Maine Farmington @19Sergei70 Time : 2014-09-26 03:53:08
I have noticed "Other" in the religion section of many profiles. What exactly is this religion? Is it the same thing in most cases? Should I exercise caution in bringing it up? Thank you in advance for the replies.

All the best.

Sergei.

This is a interesting question.
I searched my profile that also wrote "other":)
To be honest, I don't know what to write for "religion". I was born and live in "Communism" country, but I don't think it is a religion and I am not communism party, so it is not right for me. I am also not agnostic or atheist so far. Maybe it is right to write "non-religion" but it doesn't include in choses.
So, you know, only wite "other".

religion is a personal matter. i feel religion is and can be both yin and yang if not practice in balance and universiality. for me the study of the origin / historical offers me more universial understanding where i can look for a common thread rather then discrimminate. i feel more connected with other disciplines of philosophies rather then boxed in to having authority on judgement - especailly when the natural rythmn of living life transitions to death. i am from a family of 15 sisters and brother of same parent and recieved my first lessons of how humans can be so fragmented because of speaking on authority about something they do not experience yet - death. their revealations are are what causes wars.
if the respect of dialog is lost then how can we learn about differences. creation(s) gives us variety and natural laws to balance us all in every biological universe(s). so if my path meets someone then hopefully religion is not the sum total of either one of us missing out on our communion living together in a heavenly royal state of existing in love on this planet in this realm of time as we know it.
hopefully my love one has that temperament (attitude and conviction ) to cultivate love based on integrity,honesty,openingness to want love great enough to give love,and most importantly grounded in the desire to teach and share in dialog of practicality. as the ancient african proverb teaches - "ones spirit is designed to stay teachable". humbliness of spirit is as a memorial.

peace and harmony and my life is open to you!!!! jackie - tevisjackie@yahoo.com

I find that posting your religion, or religious feelings no matter what they are, in some cases may help your potential match see if you would be compatible. If you are, then having children, raising them in your belief system will be much easier, and avoid possible conflicts in the relationship. Some religions can work together without problems, but when one person wants to declare dominance in this department, it may be a deal breaker, and can end in divorce.
For me, finding someone who claims Atheist, is a red flag. my reasoning for this is because of what I see going on here in the states as people who are so against religion, that they belittle, and are very hateful of someone who wishes to practice or have some form of religious faith. That's just the way I have seen it going on for quite some time. Religion bashing has been going on for centuries, we don't live that long, so find someone you can be in harmony with, different religions can co exist in the same household, I have friends doing it, and they get along just fine
So what is "other"? The drop down list is limited, do you believe in Scientology? are you a Druid? do you believe in aliens? Spiritual but not religious?
Maybe it would be a good idea to state it in your profile what you do or do not believe or practice. It might make matching easier.
