    I'm a Deist and more or less follow the Grand Architect or Divine Watchmaker belief.
    I tried being atheist at one point but it didn't feel right.

    Science, in my opinion, is wonderful but can't explain everything.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    There should have been an "other" or a "none of the above."

    The truth is we don't know, we will probably never know, but its fun to fantasize about gods and sugarplum fairies.

    Please explain the Grand Architect or Divine Watchmaker belief.

    A non specific God created the science behind all of the chemistry of the universe and set things into motion according to that.

    This God does not interfere with human existence in any positive or negative way.

    Have no idea, it's something I've struggled with for a few years.

    I've found modern religions to be more divisive rather than inclusive and I couldn't be a part of that.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think he was being a smartass. Erich von Däniken believed that aliens visited the ancient earth and gave technology to the Mayans and Egyptians and where recieved as gods.
