This has wankity-wank potential but let's just go for it.

What are your opinions on religion? Are you a follower of any?
I'm taking an Anthro/Socy/Religion (it's cross-listed like 30 times) class called "Religions, Magic and Witchcraft" this semester and I'm currently writing my first introductory reflection paper. I don't know if this is the time to go balls-out with what I think or if I just allude to my distaste for any and all religion in general.

The reason I'm taking this class is because I'm genuinely interest in how people who follow a religion think about that religion. I want to study the sociology and anthropology of religion to see where these passionate, deeply rooted beliefs come from. I think the psychology of faith and the ability to stand so strongly for something you accept as true with little to no proof is remarkable. That is to say, that no matter what I believe (or don’t), I don’t think one should remove those desire from anyone. I’m just very open to the idea of the origins, and dare I say evolution, of religions over the course of thousands of years.
