I think I have found a religion that works for me

And while I don't follow it by the book exactly, I've found myself believing in it's ideals for many months now.
Bokononism

We do, doodley do, doodley do, doodley do,
What we must, muddily must, muddily must, muddily must;
Muddily do, muddily do, muddily do, muddily do,
Until we bust, bodily bust, bodily bust, bodily bust.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Most religions repeat the same things, not a lot of difference in moral teachings. Then, they try to wrap around those teachings something to make you do them because you aren't smart enough to figure out what is good for you without threats.

The reality of existance and just what G_d is are probably far more interesting than we can imagine.

If the universe is expanding then what is it expanding into?

Does all time exist in the now or is there a linear non beginning and non end?

I suppose Bokononism is as valid as any other belief system. Your perception of reality is reality.

Did you know that the results of some physics experiments are different depending on whether the experiment is being watched or not. Anyone know anything about that?

If I practice Bokononism can I refer to myself as a Doodley Dude?

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Sounds like quantum physics.

Schrodinger's Cat is a good thought experiment to help explain that one.

since my religion has no orthodoxy, I can't disagree with it's belief system. Well it sort of does, but it has a liberal interpretation,

Since to see you need light, and since light is energy, it is impossible to observe without effecting what you are observing. But the effect may be so minor as to not be noticable.

Of course there has been more than a few geeks who wished to observe a pretty girl who found the effect on her boyfriend was much more than the energy of light.

I'm a non-practicing Catholic...

I'm believe more along the lines of what crtreedude said. The general make-up and moral teachings of religions are the same. Yet their are people fighting wars over it screaming my God is better than your God.

They tend to miss that "Love your neighbor" rule...

Bokononism sounds just like Foo.
