I am athiest, and have been for as long as I can remember. Most of my family on my mother's side are catholic (excluding my mother herself though) and from day one, I was always given the choice to choose what I wanted to believe. And as soon as I was able and allowed to use a computer with access to the internet I have always studied wildlife, and from there evolution, and to me, it makes more sense that things evolve over billions of years rather than one man (?) just making everything. I have never believe in god or any sort or deity, the concept that there is something out there "better" (for want of a better word) that us just does not make any sense at all.

The main thing that annoys (for want of a better word) me about religion is it gives me more questions that it has ever answered, my aunt is extremely religious and has always looked down on me for not believing in her views, and it has caused many arguments with the family as she believes I am going to hell. Yet when I say to her that is impossible as I do not believe in heaven or hell, so how can I go somewhere that does not exist she just responds with "you just will, end of". And that is usually the response I get to almost all my questions I ask to any one who believes. And I would love to know why different religions argue with other religions, because if I understand correctly, the "god" people believe is the some one no matter the religion, just has a different "name"?

I'm a Christian, but only loosely - I believe parts of the Bible are true, but I don't think it's 100% so simply because the events were written years - often decades or centuries - after they really happened. I don't go to church and I don't consider myself to be of any denomination. That being said, I don't have any problem with anyone of any religion (or lack thereof) unless they, specifically are a jerk (but that goes without saying, am I right? ) I will say, though, that religious extremists (Islamic, Judaic, Christian, or otherwise) are often violent, and that is not okay, but this ties more into individuals being jerks than, say, an entire religion or denomination.

I see what you mean, but bottom line is some of these extremists' beliefs are not theirs, they are in their religion and religious book.

Maybe so, but their interpretation of their religious book is a major factor. For example, one of the commandments is "Thou shalt not kill", but some people seem to interpret it as "Thou shalt not kill, unless the other person doesn't agree". Similarly, the Bible is all about how you shouldn't sin and all that - some people take this to mean just what it says - that they, themselves, shouldn't sin - while others take this to an extreme and decide to actively, violently "punish" those they believe have sinned.

The Bible says you should not kill, and it also says that those who use it for evil intent or just to hurt others shall be punished. But I'm talking about extremists. Even the Bible has some extreme things in it that go back to the Torah but at least the Bible later speaks against this. Not all religious books with violence speak against it. And terrorists are living out and fulfilling parts saying to kill.

I consider myself as Muslim . But due situation in my family , I am secular muslim , so I believe in all basics of my religion and I read Quran , but I have never go to the mosque to pray , although every muslim should pray 5 times per day , I never pray . That is because my father is Montenegrin Muslim but my mom is Croatian Roman Catholic , so it is pretty uncomfortable to live like that , because I have always to balance on both sides , so because that we never celebrate some religious holiday in my family , but I always celebrate with my father secretly out from my house . I feel really bad because it , I love my religion , but I feel bad because of my mom , she is really trying to make me good man no matter on religion , so I understand her , because it is really hard , so sometimes I feel bad because me and my father celebrate some religious holiday even in secrecy , she never celebrate any of her religious holidays . My father allow her to celebrate , but she never ever celebrated .. I feel even bad because I dont have muslim name , so , my parents wanted to give me some indifferent international name - Dennis ..

They have violent texts,but they do not order their followers to kill innocent people without any acceptable reason.

Oh I believe they do somewhere. The Quran says how nonbelievers should be killed, and the Bible says how those who do not follow God's law should be killed.

Well actually Quran says if nonbelievers want to fight with Muslims,then you have to fight back but not transgress,because God doesn't like transgressors.Killing anyone (whether Muslim or non-Muslim) without any reason in Islam is a crime and will only face one punishment : Death Sentence.

Well,Bible is a book full of peaceful teachings,and I am sure that in this part it is only talking about defense,not killing anyone who doesn't follow God's law.
