An Agnostic is an Atheist without balls (even though you are a girl). I'm an Atheist, but that is not a religion.

What, you were level 2, now you're level 6? tounge.gif

 

I'm agnostic. I won't fully believe in religion until I get some realistic proof.

Exactly tounge.gif

 

I don't want to completely dismiss anything, even though there's no raw proof out there.

Despite not believing in any religion, i find it extremely interesting. I guess it pays to get both sides of the story

I don't believe in religion. I don't wish to be classed as anything either. just nothing. Religion is just bullsh*t that starts wars (Muslims) and is a back up when everything goes wrong.

Haha. tounge2.gif No. An agnostic simply understands that other people might feel the need for some sort of order and ultimate power that is out of their control. While I don't technically believe in god, I am not going to rule out and put down other people's beliefs simply because of that. Everyone is entitled to believe in whatever they want to. You can try to educate them about various facts, but when it comes down to it. You can't change everyone. An agnostic understands this and decides to respect other's ultimate decision in their beliefs. A plain atheist seems to refuse that some people aren't logical enough to see there is no "higher power" and tries to push their belief upon others (e.g. Atheists who try to get the "Pledge of Allegiance" changed or our money changed so it doesnt say "In God we Trust").

 

As an agnostic, I understand that those pieces which are tied so closely into our history and nation are there more for cultural reasons then religious and I understand that to try to change it simply to comfort myself and validate my own personal beliefs is ridiculously selfish and stupid.

 

I'm sure from my post you can see that I am agnostic. I tend to follow many Christian values and morals as I was raised in a Christian household, but I tend to connect those morals more toward a cultural standpoint then a religious one. I apply them to the idea that using the most common sense, you can see what works best in harmonizing everyone and everything to have the best kind of environment for everyone to live in. And in a lot of ways, some Christian morals do that. Of course.. not all of them though. lol Some morals and rules are just completely ridiculous to follow and have no real common sense base or application in the real world.

Its amazing how everyone says RELIGION STARTS WARS.

 

The only thing that starts wars is close-minded atheists who spend more time complaining about how much they hate religion rather than JUST NOT CARING. mad.gif

I'm more athiest now than i was last September

I know the feeling

My school teacher read out a prayer Jesus said to God word for word in the Gethsemane shortly before the Romans arrested and executed him..

I asked her who wrote down what Jesus said word for word in the Bible if he was on his own?

 

"Erm..ooh..ahh.. we study that next year.."

Actually you are wrong. History proves you wrong. The crusades was about Catholic Christians spreading the word of god. Much of the colonization of Northern American and Central America involved tension and small wars amongst natives and new comers as the various Christian believers came to "spread the word of god" and "save the savage natives".

 

I wouldn't say Religion is to blame for wars, and I definitely wouldn't say Atheists started wars, especially since the concept of Atheism didn't official exist before recent times (most cultures in history were closely tied to some form of religion).

 

What I would say that did start many wars and issues is the idea of Organized Religion.

 

Look it up and educate yourself and you will see the difference.

Then...you can't really consider yourself to be Christian. That's just contradictory.

 

And I'm not trying to be sour or anything, it's just that "being skeptic about the whole god thing" is really not something you'd hear from a Christian.

 

EDIT: And let the topic spiraling out of control time begin.

I'm not sure about the stories or any of that but I believe there's a God up there.

See but the crusades were obviously not practising real Christianity. Christians dont kill people. So they were not practising what God wants from humans. smile.gif

What I find funny about this topic is the fact the creator asks others what their religion is, yet he refuses to have an open conversation about it. If you aren't Christian like him, you must be wrong and are to blame for various issues and problems throughout history.

 

Talk about being close minded. Which I believe was the entire point of his argument against Atheists. turn.gif

 

 

@365: Maybe you should research the saying. "Everything is relative". While they may not be practicing Christianity as you believe it to be. In their mind they were perfectly sound and devoted Christians, doing the work of god.

 

Exact same issue that goes on now with Extremist and terrorists. They are still Muslim, however, they have taken a different interpretation of their own religious texts and applied it to their beliefs.

Yes. But it is GOD BREATHED. God inspired what the people were writing. Basically God wrote it.

Atheist. I have a friend who says, "I don't really believe in God, but I want to because if I don't I'll go to hell." That's exactly what is wrong with religion. Bullsh*t.

Yes they do. People in every religion kill people.

 

What do you call conservative Christians who love the death penalty?

It feels pretty nice to be an atheist and not have to bow down to imaginary non-existant beings that you call God.

'God breathed'... interesting turn of phrase.

 

What about the old testament? Was that the result of a breathy wheeze from the almighty father also?
