I see that it also has political viewpoints. Ie: "Baha'u'llah said the best form of government for the time being is a combination of republic and monarchy, as in the UK. Also, before mankind has grown into one, institutions of collective security are the best way to deal with international problems. "
As far as religion and politics go, I kinda of follow the christian viewpoint of giving to Caesar what is Caesar's and giving God what is God's. Having traveled to many churches and leaning on my personal studies on religion or spiritualism, as a whole, I am to a point now that I do not believe much anything that defies logic or the dictates of reason. When the myths and superstitions start rolling in, my BS sniffer alarm goes of. Deity defies logic and reason yet I find myself drawn from some unexplained spiritual force for some unknown enlightenment. I guess that's what keeps me looking.
Honestly, the "God," thing is more believable to me from a scientific approach. Something, at some point in time, was exposed to the fledgling human race. And we have been trying to explain it ever since. There will always be new religions just as sure as there are old one's.
What I am looking for cannot be found in religion, I believe.

Well, there's probably evidence for my eye color, too. You choose not to accept that evidence, then don't accept an appeal to reason, that is not my fault, though.
A theist is someone that believes there is a god, an atheist is someone that believes there is no god and an agnostic is one that WITH HOLDS judgement, that doesn't know.
As for the evidence, I don't have access to it, so I with hold judgement, if I get it then I'll believe one way or another.
I am a deist. There is a God, but its origin, looks, and works are unknown. Until questions such as the following are answered I shall remain a questioning deist:
a) Origin - What is there before Big Bang?
b) Looks - What does God looks like?
c) Works - What is it doing?
The religious would try to answer these important questions with BS such as: a) God is eternal (before Big Bang), b) Looks like us people (Beard and Old guy), and c) watches over us (Works in mysterious ways but does so for us [yeah, we are in the center of universe!]). There are no data to provide conclusive evidence about such statements.
It's too bad that you're incapable of understanding the terminology involved.
After evidence is presented, you don't "believe;" you accept the evidence or you don't.As for the evidence, I don't have access to it, so I with hold judgement, if I get it then I'll believe one way or another.
It's a while since I've read an argument this pointless and banal.
