Because theology is a topic of interest for me, people often attempt to label me as a follower of some specific religion.
So, I will clarify:
I am not a follower of ANY religion. However, I do study ALL of them.
All religion can be defined as a form of cultural mythology.
Lots of folks have trouble with this idea. They are willing to look at the stories from other cultures as mythology, but they can not bring themselves to use that term for their own belief system.
When they define other beliefs as mythology, and define their own beliefs as Theology, it implies that one is false, and the other is true.
