Hmm, think for yourself, by adopting our philosophy.

So far, everything listed in their sins and virtues is something I can and do strive for myself, with the help of my friends. Why found a 'religion' around it? (Aside from torking off the Christians, of course, which seems to me like an irrational waste of your energy and effort.)

In other words, it's a nice site, but so what?

I wrote an enormous thing about this under the Wicca post, so I'll spare everyone the repeat rantings. Just a summary: anyone who wants to dedicate a whole "belief" system based on finding truth through reason isn't too hip on modern developments in epistemology, philosophy of science, or even ancient skepticism. Even math and logic are not infallible (ask someone smarter than me about Godel for an in depth explanation of that one), and if we have to rely on a combination of logic and human thought to find truth, well, than God help us all. Seriously.
