    Abrahamic here, so what people weirdly refer to as "ultra-orthodox/conservative".

    Huh? You mean Judaism? If so, to me ultra-orthodox and conservative mean two very different things.

    no am not jewish. but am of the thought that if you adhere to what is considered "ultra-conservative values" (they're just traditionalist values lol) and because you are doing so because you believe to be strictly conforming to what is true and established (in this case, what constitutes abrahmic values), it follows that you are being ultra-orthodox (at least that's how i've observed society to label it). i could be wrong. :shrug:

    Ok. I guess I'm confused, because in terms of religion, I've never heard anyone use the term "ultra-orthodox" to refer to anything other than forms of Hasidic/Haredi Judaism, versus Modern Orthodox which is not as stringent in terms of separation from modern secular society, and Conservative Judaism, which is even less stringent, and is only traditional if you compare it to Reform/Liberal Judaism. Of course, in a general sense, "conservative" and "orthodox" can have many different applications.

    I'm agnostic, baptised Anglican but had a secular upbringing. My dad is a lapsed Catholic who had a religious upbringing although my grandparents on that side never seemed all that religious to me (my direct paternal line is Catholic as far back as they can be traced, whilst my paternal grandmother converted from Anglicanism to marry my grandfather) and my mum was a non-religious Anglican although both sides are a mix of both Catholicism and Anglicanism plus various other Christian denominations including Methodists and Quakers.

    I like some of the ideas of Buddhism, I wouldn't call myself a Buddhist at the moment though.

    I do not belong to any formal religion but I would describe myself as a religious monotheist. I live my life by the Seven Laws; so I would be labelled a Noahide in the Abrahamic context. The rest of my family have something of a mixed Christian background: Anglican, Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox, but there has been a clear deviation from faith over the generations as you would expect in a place like the United Kingdom.

    I'm not religious, but I follow one principle "religiously". I think it stems from Christianity, which is that you shouldn't do something to others that you wouldn't want done on yourself.
    But religions can and do provide a couple of morally righteous teachings. In my opinion, they are meant to be interpreted as fables, i.e. one should derive moral lessons from fictional stories.

    I was raised Anglican and later converted to Catholicism. I’m also a Camaldolese Benedictine Oblate. Which means that I’m affiliated to an eremitical and contemplative branch of the Benedictine Order, though one of their Monasteries.
