This month, as I’m sure you inferred from the title, we are going to explore the world of religion. As goths, many of us are drawn to more intellectual pursuits, and enjoy exploring existential and philosophical topics. However what affect does this have on our thought processes when it comes to religion, and should our goth identity have an affect, can causation be found there, or is goth truly devoid of any religious affiliation. I feel goths especially, are more likely to agree, an important aspect of the human condition is the spiritual. We so often focus on death, and with that comes a contemplation of the afterlife. Well, thankfully we have an expert with us, who can help traverse these themes and perhaps chart some of these correlations.
