My whole family including me are god fearing religious people.

Are you religious or non religious OT ?

Non-religious

#3 Edited by AmazonTreeBoa (16484 posts) -

I don't go to church or anything like that and haven't in decades, but yes I believe there is a god more than I don't. Seeing everything coming true that I read in the bible as a kid is scary and makes me kinda look at nonbelievers as fools.

Strict religious. but not extremist.

Didn't you say before that slavery is ok due to your religious beliefs? I recall you listing slaves running away from their masters (or something along those lines) as one of the top 100 worst things.

non-religious, probably due to being forced to have to go to church every week for 15 years or so.

Care to name a few examples?

#11 Posted by GazaAli (22491 posts) -

I'd say I'm religious yes. I find it peculiar though that many people would say I'm not religious, and just as many would say I'm a fundamentalist.

#12 Posted by ShepardCommandr (2155 posts) -

I don't believe in any of that stuff.

#13 Posted by Master_Live (13658 posts) -

Non-religious, non-believer.

#14 Posted by Korvus (2467 posts) -

Raised as a Catholic but now...non-religious I guess, but not really atheist either. I just don't really care if there's a God, no God, many Gods or a pasta monster. Everything's possible. *Plays Twilight Zone Theme*

Oh no. When I was a kid, I went through that phase.

Religious. Not an extremist though.

#17 Posted by pyro1245 (307 posts) -

i fear no gods nor men

#18 Posted by johnd13 (7820 posts) -

Religious though I don't follow most of the "rules" like going to church etc. I was raised in a similar environment and my parents are pretty much the same and never forced me to do anything I didn't feel like.

#19 Posted by PonchoTaco (1905 posts) -

Religious. Church every Sunday and Wednesday night (unless work holds me late).

can you give any examples of things coming true that are in the bible? or are you just talking out your arse as usual?

#23 Posted by one_plum (6305 posts) -

Wasn't raised religious. That shaped my atheistic worldview. Though I'm fascinated by other people's religious culture: rituals, architecture, etc...

#24 Posted by konvikt_17 (22108 posts) -

Completely non-religious.

Religion is good, provides belief, which is good for the mind, body, and soul.

#33 Posted by ultimate-k (2348 posts) -

Non religious, but I believe in a creator, but not in a being who wishes to be worshipped.

He'll probably cite war and famine and crap that has been happening throughout the course of human history. He'll also ignore the fact that because it's in the Bible, believers have been actively attempting to ensure the prophecies come true.

Religious, but I don't go to church every Sunday. To think that we're here by accident is pretty stupid imo. Also how was the universe created? A big bang out of nowhere? I really don't think so. I'm not trying to debate this either lol, just a heads up.

Non-religious, agnostic.

I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody's nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.

Lame. Get your pitchfork and pick a side.

#41 Edited by Skyz_ (56 posts) -

I believe in some sort of higher power, but I don't follow any particular religion so non-religious I guess...

#42 Posted by airshocker (28344 posts) -

I'm agnostic. Definitely not as anti-religion as some of the crazies on these forums, though.

#43 Posted by -Toshy- (1349 posts) -

Non religious. More apathetic, really.

#44 Posted by lonewolf604 (8513 posts) -

I am non-religious. Ironic since I still go to church, and play the piano for church service....I'm beginning to go less and less. But I've known these people since I was young, and its really hard to let go. Religion aside, they are great people, and without them there is a huge hole in my life. It just sucks that everything that has led up to this point has made me "hate" religion.

#45 Posted by TheFlush (5419 posts) -

I'm an agnostic atheist.

#46 Posted by br0kenrabbit (12683 posts) -

I tried for a long time to believe in religion, but it just seems to go against every logical conclusion I can form given the observable evidence.

Just to say 'god did it' is far worse!

#48 Posted by gkalns2311 (41 posts) -

I believe in god and consider myself religious but I don't really believe in churches. I just don't see anything special about them, they are just building in my eyes and nothing more. They weren't around when Jesus walked the earth. ANY place can be a church, my room, a secluded area in the woods, while in a plane; He is everywhere.

I just get aggravated if and when I do go to church because all that happens is sitting, kneeling, standing, recite this, say this when the priest says that. It's all very boring to me as well it having the feel that people go through the motions there and do it just to look good in front of others, because it's "what I have to do."

I doubt Jesus had anyone doing excercises while preaching atop a stone. He told stories, delivered messages, and really connected with people. I feel like that's how it really should be, not as up tight and seemingly on auto pilot. This is how I feel.

Not so religious but respect other's believe

but I hate the attitude of some group of Atheist and Al-Qaeda (they are brothers in bed...lol) who thinks they are better than others

Funny, I get that sense from Christians all the time. Mostly when they tell me I'm going to hell.
