    Re: Aethiests

    The great thing about being an atheist is that you can believe whatever you want. I believe in evolution and scientific evidence. I also believe in things that make logical sense. Anything else you want to know?

    Re: Aethiests

    I got the basics thanks, but what do you mean logical sense? I know what that phrase means, but like what would be considered logical sense to you.

    Re: Aethiests

    Logical sense...I suppose its individual..just because it makes sense to me, doesnt mean it will to others. To me, a "god" that never makes his presence known doesnt make sense..but maybe thats just me.

    Why thank you :D

    Re: Aethiests

    lol, thanks nienor, God does make his presence known through the Holy spirit AKA Holy ghost. Otherwise there are a whole bunch of bible verses that I will not cram down your throat that explain that.
    Which is your favorite Goo Goo Dolls song?

    Re: Aethiests

    It's times like this that I wish I wasn't an agnostic so I could pray to God to make the pain go away.

    Re: Aethiests

    It's "Name", thanks for asking..how bout you?

    And siting the Bible, to me, is about as valuable as siting any work of fiction.

    That's a fallacy, or you would be denying constantly....

    Re: Aethiests

    I do not know the name of the song but it goes,"I don't want the world to see me, cuz I don't think that they'd understand" I think you know the rest. I am much more of an Oasis fan though. Their best songs are "chanpagne supernova" and "maybe" I love those songs. I also like U2 album the Joshua tree.

    Re: Aethiests

    Lord E (<--- take note of your forum nickname and remember it :p ) The song you're thinking of is Iris. But anyone who starts a GGD appreciation thread will be repeatedly smacked by me or Sky.

    IMHO, most athiests believe that natural science explains eveyrthing. It's very easy to see how cehmistry, physics, biology, etc explains everything you see. Including the origins of life. The world seeminly operates by itself with no outside help.

    I am agnostic. We haven't quite made up our minds whether there is a God or not and how much he/she interferes with the world. ;) I occasionally attend a Christian church because that's my husband's beliefs. But I personally am not quite sure if I believe much of what I hear. I'll read the Bible and other religious things, but refuse to be convinced one way or another. Fortunately for religious people and athiests alike, agnostics rarely argue much about religion. :D

    Re: Aethiests

    That's Okay for agnostics because they will find out one day for sure that there is a God and he had a Son for a purpose.(according to my belief)

    Re: Aethiests

    Arwen I totally respect your beliefsonly why do you have such a well how do I say it "anti-christ" attitude? I do not mean that in any kind of an insult so please don't lash at me, it just seems like you hate anything that has to do with God. Which is fine, but we have to at least try to be somewhat open-minded here. *again please don't get mad at me that was totally innocent.

    Or you may die and wake up as a sea urchin all pissed off that you wasted a good deal of your Sundays as a human in church. :devilspin:
