    religious? not religious?

    atheist means you think there is no god or higher power

    agnostic means you accept the possibility but are not religious

    I think most people, to some degree or another, would like to believe that there is something out there watching over them and helping them, and if nothing else, just making sure that the world makes sense.

    I don't understand how anyone can believe in a god when there is just so much proof that there isn't one. At least not like the so-called Christians say there is. When disasters strike, everyone gets killed the same, religious or nonreligious. Churches get blown away by storms while they're full of people praying to God. You're just as safe in a bar as a church. Last thing we need is people that can't see how silly they are, trying to run other people's lives.

    Re: religious? not religious?

    What if one believes in God, but not religion, considering that religion is man-made?

    So you the proof against god is because...disasters happen? really? I know you think we're stupid but...please...you don't need to be smart to refute that.

    Thats a theist, which is what I consider myself. (Granted im technically a Catholic) Although I view organization religion as an authoritarian structure.

    I am a spiritual person, but definitely not a religious one.

    Same, I am Catholic but believe in tenets more than a church. In fact the last time I had anything to do with a congregation was during a funeral, I enjoy the services, just....um........not all of god's people. Wonder if that makes sense?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It does to me. I was raised without religion - I was never baptized, never attended services outside of weddings and funerals.

    I don't believe in God per se, but I don't discount there may be something bigger out there. I believe people have souls - I just can't believe we're all walking masses of gelatinous substance, trudging through life and that there's nothing more to make up the people that we are - with emotions, drives, desires, passions, etc....

    I am not prepared however, to say there is one invisible 'being' that is sitting in judgement of my every thought and action and that that 'being' will sentence my soul to either utopia or damnation upon the death of my outer shell.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
