I'm not sure where to put this, as Atheism isnt a religion, but it often gets dragged into that area. Atheism is defined as the lack of belief/disbelief in a deity. It is *NOT* the belief there are no gods (because that's a belief). What usually follows with atheism is the lack of believing in supernatural things, like ghosts, spirits & the like. It usually extends to things like reincarnation, past lives; to many atheists, anything supernatural requires super good evidence. Many atheists dont believe in supernatural things, but there are plenty who are spiritual, perhaps more in tune with the universe. I think I lie somewhere in there. As an atheist otherkin, I don't believe in deities, but my brain tells me I should be a cat. While I dont necessarily believe it's reincarnation (I am open to the possibility), I do think it's more of a brain wiring thing. I would say it's phantom limb syndrome, but it's a tricky thing to get into. Even more so, some ppl compare it to being transgender, but the only thing I see about that is your brain/body is telling you that you're something you're not & it's wrong, that it should be fixed. Like if you're born male but your body is telling you you should be female, otherkin would be that you're born human but your body is telling you you should be a cat, dragon, etc. This is controversial to many, but it could be one of many possible explanations. While I dont really believe in supernatural stuff, like ghosts, I'm very agnostic about them existing. More like if they exist, cool! If they dont, cool! I've had experiences in the past with auras, feelings, dreams & such that lead me to believe in some of these things, but not all of them. Perhaps more on an earthly, realistic scale. I find them very fascinating to talk & think about. I dont mean to offend, I'm just stating my beliefs & opinions. Are any of you atheist, agnostic or perhaps deists, but also otherkin as well? What do you think makes you otherkin? To theists, what are your opinions on atheists, atheist otherkin & the like? Is your religion related to your otherkinity?
