    I have invented a theory that i really like.

    1. I dont know if a Perfect Being (or a God ) exists. And i'll never know.
    2. I don't think anybody can or will prove the existence of a God.

    But...
    3. I don't give a f**k !!!

    Why ? Because if there is a God, i think there can be no link between him and any other unperfect thing.
    Because i think that the distance between the Perfect and the Unperfect is infinite.

    Well you can't prove exactally but in religion class(I am a catholic) last year we were reading proofs for the exictence of God(By St Thomas Aquinas) and they are quite logical and convincing.

    I am a Christian, but... I don't really know. I'm confused. Sometimes my faith is really strong, sometimes I hate the whole thing and believe in nothing. There are some things in other religions that sound good to me, for example the Karma thing. So perhaps I am a lost wanderer in the huge world of different believes and perspectives. Maybe I'll find the right way someday... *prays*

    because people try to force their beliefs onto them even though they may not want to share that belief, and because things happen that they don't understand lead them to dismiss a god. I've had many experiences that have made me a thorough believer. I've had four close calls with my knife collection that were either luck or God so I say God due to the fact that my luck aint nothin good. and every time I've asked for some sign I've gotten it.

    Just a suggestion, but why not you strart your own perspective as to who God is and what are you, souring your beliefs form the current ones you hold, as well as the beliefs that apeal to our logic.

    Some pople may not agree with me, but I think that god would not have selfishly revealed Himself to only one group of people. Pagan, Jew, Christian or Muslim alke , they feel Him.

    I'm an atheist, but I believe in the whole karma/what goes around comes around sort of thing. But I don't think it's controlled by anyone--or anything supernatural. I just think that if you're a bad person, you're going to end up in bad situations, and if you're a good person, you're going to end up in good situations--for the most part. But sometimes things just don't work out like that, I guess. Murderers and rapists are left to walk the streets, and innocent people die for stupid things that weren't even their fault. But life just sucks sometimes, and I think all you can do is deal with it and try to make the best of things, because in my opinion, this life is the only chance you get.

    Still, I respect everyone else's opinions, as long as they respect mine, too.

    Atheist. I was raised with religion offered to me if it interested me, which it didn't, and my parents always let me choose my own beliefs.

    I think it's interesting that (according to this poll) we have forty nine Christians here. But I wonder how many of them use the Bible as the foundation for their moral, philosophical, educational, and political beliefs.

    Yeah just saying you're of a religion doesn't mean you live your life by its rules and guidelines. I wonder what the responses would be to a "Are you a devout Christian/Jew/Muslim/Buddhist etc" poll?

    I'm a Christian.
    For me the Bible is the words of God, like a light that sweeps the shadows away from my path. Means the Bible is the base of my life.

    PM me if u wanna talk, I like to meet new people all the time.
