I feel that no matter which religion you are you should get along. Truthfully I guess I believe in agnosticism because I have no reason to believe in anything else. It might be because my parents don't really talk aboout religion. I'm not going to base my life or time on a religion that some people that I will never see wrote down a long time ago. I don't think people that believe in anything else is dumb or wrong I just don't find any logic in it. I don't feel that atheism is any more probable than any other religion. People are spending all this time and effort when they should be focused on now and there life. I do agree with the pricipals of most religions. I feel there is a higher being but I don't think that people hundreds of years ago had visions about it.

I've seen argument after argument between Creationist and Evolutionist, and have started a few myself. Time and time again, I've seen "You can't prove evolution any more than you can prove God" put as a last resort argument. Personally, I believe that you can easily prove evolution much more fully than you can God. We can almost prove for certain that science, math and pure coincidence are what created humans, the earth, the sun, and the rest of the damn cosmos. The only thing we don't have an answer for is: "What is keeping God from existing?"

Personally, I'm agnostic for that exact reason. It seems to me that there must be SOME reason why so many people believe in God, or a god, at least. I'm not completely shoving the possibility of God's existence off the canvas, I'm just biding my time to paint with that specific colour. If someone comes along saying "I have something I think is valid proof that God exists" then I will listen. I try not to be ignorant to the possibility.

Now, I'm sure some of you who are reading this have seen me elsewhere, completely bashing those who put their faith in religion. The reason I do this is that It doesn't seem to me that they have a good reason for believing in what they do. If someone can give me a good reason why they believe in God, some solid or spiritual form of proof, then mayhap I'll change. In the meantime, I'll leave that shade of paint on the palette.

"I contend that we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you. When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." Stephen F. Roberts

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." Stephen King

Pyrapisme is my co-pilot.

Both God and Jesus exist God just wants u 2 seek him

Isaiah 42:16
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.

Yes but doesn't change my idea of god.
I still think that if a god existed, he would be an asshole for creating us, very chaotic imperfect beings.

My belief is cheifly Philosophical Taoism. There is no real God or Creator, but a natural "way" that things follow. There is no predicting this "way", and it does not deliberately act for or against any individuals. We must learn to simply accept that there is a natural flow to things, and said flow must be worked with. Do not add anything to it, do not disrupt it. BTW, this does not simply mean accepting everything for what it is such as injustices and suffering. People who cause suffering are disturbing the flow by interfering unnecessarily with the lives of others, and must be stopped.

In order to get a much better idea of what I am trying to say here, I suggest you look into "The Tao of Pooh". It sounds goofy, but it actually helps alot.

I was raised in a muslim family in a largely christian country with (thankfully) secular secondary schools that allowed me to think about and question religion. I'm an atheist and materialist. I don't believe in the soul, I don't believe in any greater power, I don't believe in anything other than what can be proved to me.

I'm of a persuasion where I think that religion does much more harm and has done more harm than good. To me (I know to anyone reading it may be different) it's like having your purpose and your life designated for you. Any God that exists and needs to be worshiped continually seems so egotistical and, when you think of the massive imbalance of suffering, downright morally wrong that it would be better that they didn't exist. In that case i guess I'm an anti-theist.

I'm sorry if I offended you, but to go from "there has to be a beginning to the universe" to "an omnibenevolent, omnipotent, omniscient creator did it" is a step too far. Sometimes, the universe is just "brute fact" and the best and only answer we'll ever get is "I don't know."

Of course these are my opinions and there's no reason you should share them. (Which is another reason I don't like religion, the right religion - which is all of them apparently - always has to be shared by everybody).

Thanks for slugging through that if you did.

Evolution has nothing to do with Atheism. If you're going to post your beliefs, at least have the decency to know what you're talking about.

I'm an atheist, and when I argue about religion with somebody. I don't try to tell them their thing is wrong and that they should change, because I don't know for sure that there is no god. But if someone brings it up, I will give them my point of view and supporting facts, and then challenge them to do the same.

If someone can give even one reason and one supporting fact about why god exists, that I Can't prove wrong, just shows that I haven't looked into my choices long enough, and that I can't decide for sure if god exists or not. But so far that has never happened.

And one thing that does bother me about a lot of religious people is that they haven't looked into any other religion besides their own. They argue that their god is real, when they don't even know a shit about another religion. I have looked into lots of religions of the world and I can prove everything wrong using logical sense and a mind. And you can't even argue with a stubborn religious person, because you can't argue with a stubborn person period. They won't die other sides of the story, and opt to look at only their point of view when the opposing person might be saying something that just brings their whole arrogant tower crumbling down.

I cannot understand the religous freedom thing in the catholic faith. Yes, we do not wan. To use birth control, but there are some cases where it is nessisary fore ones health, for example. It is a misnomer to put this name on it.

People need to move on and realize that if it's not their religion, why is it a big deal? It doesn't effect you directly. I'm Jewish. we believe we are the chosen people and that we will know when our messiah comes. Jesus is not the messiah. Anyone want to argue? Well think... is it worth it? Does it really affect me? Freedom of speech...
