    I agree. I consider it equally as presumptuous for an atheist to declare that there with certainty is no god as it is for a theist to proclaim with certainty the opposite.

    Yes...that IS the issue....

    The problem is that you have a God that is your own....just like everyone else.


    Yes, we all belive in something (probably)....but it is certainly not what YOU do.

    You believe in the Holy Trinity, great. So do many of my family members. That does not change the fact that, although I and other of my relatives do not believe in the Holy Trinity, we do believe in a soul and an afterlife. And those of us who do not profess an actual religion, basically have all said at one time or the other "I don't really know if what I believe is true" or "I don't know if there is a God". Most of my parents' children (I think I have one brother who is Christian) have our own beliefs but those still include a higher power, a soul, and an afterlife. And we all are at least a little agnostic.

    I have certainly met more who say "I don't know if there is a God" than I have people who say "there is no God".
    I personally don't believe you can be a little agnostic, you are or your not but if that makes you feel better in the long run fine......God sent down the 10 commandments I notice no mention of them in your beliefs........It sure makes it a lot easier if a sort of Agnostic doest not have to worry about them..........

    If god in fact did send down the 10 commandments, he and his followers largely ignored it throughout the rest of the old testament. I can't subscribe to a religion that advocated murder, rape and slavery over and over and over again.

    The 10 Commandments are, for the most part, good guidelines. Most of them make plenty of sense and make good rules. Those that I agree with, I follow.

    But don't get up on any high horse with me and pretend that you never break the 10 Commandments.

    I'm totally okay with you not caring what I believe, and in fact understand you cannot possibly do so....this is not an issue. The fact you want ME to accept your personal faith.....IS.


    After six years watching your world though...I understand nothing will change, and I am going to your version of Hell, I'm okay with that.

    From what I understand....you won't be there!

    For all of you in this thread, I can assure you that hell is exists. I've been there, it's a real place on this earth, and it's located between pakistan and iran.

    Oh now see, I was going to make a joke about hell being with the inlaws, but I cannot now. I would feel terrible for comparing the inlaws with being in Afghanistan.

    Re: Do you believe in God?

    As is reality of most of the Bible(s)....it has co-opted from history...(see Noah, Eden, Revolations,....etc...):

    "Ma'at : origin of the 10 commandments

    The principles of Maat (Ma'at) is what has been used in order to come up with the bible's 10 commandments. wThe admonitions of Maat (also known as the negative confession), was originally written in the ancestral language called Medu Neter. Below is a simplified translation:

    I have not done iniquity.
    I have not robbed with violence.
    I have not stolen.
    I have not made any to suffer pain.
    I have not defrauded offerings.
    I have done no murder nor bid anyone to slay on my behalf.
    I have not trimmed the measure.
    I have not spoken lies I have not robbed God.
    I have not caused the shedding of tears.
    I have not dealt deceitfully.
    I have not acted guilefully.
    I have not laid waste to the land.
    I have not set my lips against anyone.
    I have not been angry or wrathful without a just cause.
    I have not lusted nor defiled the wife of any man.
    I have not polluted myself.
    I have not caused terror.
    I have not done that which is abominable.
    I have not multiplied words exceedingly.
    I have never uttered fiery words.
    I have not judged hastily.
    I have not transgressed nor have I vexed or angered God.
    I have not stopped my ears against the words of Right and Truth .
    I have not burned with rage.
    I have not worked grief.
    I have not acted with insolence.
    I have not avenged myself.
    I have not stirred up strife.
    I have not been an eavesdropper.
    I have not wronged the people
    I have done no harm nor have I done evil
    I have not worked treason.
    I have never fouled the water.
    I have not spoken scornfully.
    I have never cursed God.
    I have not behaved with arrogance.
    I have not envied or craved for that which belongs to another.
    I have not filched food from the mouth of the infant.
    I have done no hurt unto man, nor wrought harm unto beasts.
    I have never magnified my condition beyond what was fitting."
