This is a question I've been wondering about for quite a while, and one that I haven't seen too much discussion about. The practice of mixing elements of separate religions is called syncretism, and from what I've read, it generally involves combining several beliefs from one religion with several from another- often one that is entirely unrelated. Obviously, this is more easily done with polytheistic (multiple-deity) religions, as one can just incorporate certain deities into their own pantheon, but monotheistic (single-deity) combinations exist as well. People's opinions are very divided on whether this is okay or not, and the consensus seems to differ drastically based on what religions are being mixed- and the fact that many religions insist that theirs is the "one true path" creates a lot of extra resistance. Personally, I'm undecided- I think that people should be able to believe in whatever they want, but some combinations just don't make any sense to me. What are your thoughts? I'd be interested to hear them!
