    What is your religious denomination?

    We've got a vast spread of political ideologies on this forum, let's see how diverse our religious beliefs are. I'm sure this has been done in the past, but...meh.

    This isn't intended as a catalyst for theological debates, but if that's where it leads...y'all have fun.

    I, personally, am an agnostic because A. I realized that the Christian stories I was raised with made no more sense than the Norse and Greek "Mythologies" and B. I don't feel like humanity is capable of understanding whatever supernatural force, if any, exists; if we can't stop killing each other, how can we expect to understand the nature of the universe? And C. almost all religions teach peace, yet they seem incapable of co-existing, and therefore, I have a problem with organized religion.

    Former ECLA Lutheran. I became an atheist on August 25th, 2012 after a few months of waffling.

    Non-denominational Christian. The older I get the more convinced I am that God is real.

    That's cool, Digs. Evangelicals get a bad rap sometimes, but in my experience they're the nicest people. I think they give more to charity than anyone else, too.

    From what I've noticed people give Evangelicals a bad rap over our mainstream views on social issues or the notion that we are sheeples to Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum.

    Christian I guess, it's weird, I just have a hard time believing in most of the Bible. I mean, I love the good stuff, the love thy neighbor stuff, and do unto others, and Jesus is pretty awesome, but everything else just seems like crap written by people 2,000 years ago in 3 different ancient languages that has been edited so many times that it's hard to keep up. It just seems pointless to taken any of it seriously.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    I said christian, really lapsed catholic. Molestation of little boys and coverup by the bishops really turned me off. Sometimes now I verge on atheist. I wonder how life was started from "no life", which leaves me open to god. I wonder how single cells of life could become more complex and create fish, mammals, and an organism as amazing as a man, without a plan, without some intelligence behind it. It frankly seems like as big a stretch as accepting that there is a god. I have a hard time accepting that a human is an accident of evolution. That position seems rather absurd. The forces of nature can create some beautiful landscapes, but most of that is destroying what came before it; there was a plateau and then a glacier cut out the center and now we have beautiful mountains and valleys. That does not seem like the kind of force that could build a human being.

    Humans can't build a plane without years of planning, but we think a machine as complex with thinking capability of man is an accident? This does not seem right.
