It just sorta came to me, actually. But in general, Christianity and it's brothers make me really uncomfortable, if you want to rule that out.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

Evidence?

Fair enough. lol
You can say a lot about it, but it has improved my overall health. Before I was really tired and unhappy to the point where I would try to sleep all day and mope when I woke up.

Many mental aberrations can make one feel better. When I was involved in a New AGe church I slept better than I had before or since for all that. SO if that is the goal, have at it, good on ya etc...

RE: Ask a Kemetic
I think this is probably a stop on your journey of exploration. Lots of people do this sort of thing.

So, is it the praying that makes you feel better?

RE: Ask a Kemetic
Do you proselytize? Even if you don't actively seek to convert potential followers, do you think some people need your faith or would benefit from your faith in any way that they can't manage without your belief system?

Might come as a disappointment for a lot of you, but it's made me much happier and healthier.
I still don't know a lot for this religion but I know a bit.
Main Gods I follow:
Seth ((the main dude I follow))[Image: 2000px-Set.svg.png]
And Anubis

Not just that, the whole thing works that way. Praying, offering, working to do something for a deity and the community all have helped.

The biggest thing I like about this religion, is it's really personal. (Sure, there's Kemetic Orthodox, which I don't partake in) I truly don't care to spread my beliefs. If someone wants to learn about it, they can ask and I will talk about it. I'm sure the deities would like more followers but it's not my place to pester people about it. My experience and happiness in the religion doesn't really suggest that the faith would make everyone happy. Many people live without faith and a lot do better without it.
So to answer you question, no. No one needs to convert.

Can you drink and play cards ?
Does Seth (at TTA) know about this ?
