    Idk if there is or isn't a God

    but I believe there's something out there. And if someone is looking out for me and my family, I greatly appreciate it. I just rather not waste me time going to church and worshipping something that's nonexistent. Know what I means people?

    I cannot prove or disprove anything.

    And this trait of mine irritates me because when it comes to the supernatural or paranormal, I just shrug and say, "It could happen." There could be some entity in the sky watching and judging us, or there couldn't. No one knows. We don't know until we die. But I suppose one...

    Sometimes I think those asking

    for prayers on FB are trying to mask that they're looking for 'attention' (depending). I really don't like saying it that way but I do wonder at times about it. Why not just be blunt as to what the problem is and leave the 'asking for prayers' part out of it? I have been blunt...

    I finally found the word

    that describes my views..! Agnostic : a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.

    People sometimes ask what religion I'm in.

    I usually say I'm agnostic. Truth is, I don't care for religion. It never was important to me. So, even if there was a God, I wouldn't care. If God was proven fake, I still wouldn't care. It doesn't matter to me at all.

    For the record, I do not consider atheists to

    be wicked. I have atheist friends. What distinguishes them from the others I have moaned about here is that while they live virtuous lives, they do not shove their beliefs down the throats of others nor do they distort history to suit their agendas. I hold believers to the...

    Hello, I am just recently discovering what my

    religious beliefs are. I have been raised in a very "deep southern" baptist family in which I have been forced to go to church, had religion shoved down my throat, and even "influenced" me to go to a Baptist University. Despite the fact that I've grown up with the family I...

    "So, God has the will to stop the evil,

    but he doesn't? Then he's not omnipotent. He can do it, but he does not desires to do it? Then he's evil. Can he and want to prevent it? Then, from where does evil come from? He can't or don't want to prevent evil? Then, Why call him God?" -Epicurus Basically my thoughts.

    I'm not sure what to believe anymore.

    When I was younger I was told to be Christian. Now that I'm older I feel it has too many unanswered questions and feels confining like prison. I don't feel saved I feel like it's being used to keep me complacent like cattle. Maybe cause when I read the bible the stories aren't...

    Ill continue to be Agnostic until: When someone

    can tell me what happened before the Big Bang without saying A) Jesus' dad did it. B) it just happened. When someone can tell me how life started without saying A) Jesus' dad did it. B) it just happened. When someone can tell me how the universe isn't just one giant hologram.

    Tired Of Being Called An Athiest.

    I am not an Athiest. I think being Athiest is just as unfounded as being religious. I am Agnostic. I acknowledge that there could be a God(dess) or several. But I admit there's no real way of knowing for sure. Who are we to decide that there is a god, or that there isn't one...

    True Wisdom Is Knowing You Don't Know

    It was Socrates who said, "True wisdom is knowing you don't know." My awareness of my ignorance is the source of whatever humility, creativity, and free will I might possess. Ironically, without it I would be lost and the more ignorant I know myself to be the wiser I become. I...

    Ignorant Agnostic

    I Am Agnostic, Not Atheist And Not Confused!

    It seems being agnostic is the one and only theological stance that people still widely assume is a fair target. Telling people you are agnostic is often like painting a bull's eye on yourself. Evangelical New Atheists consider religion the root of all evil and insist that either...

    I am agnostic in respect to the deist

    conceptions of God. That's not to say that their arguments are sound. They stumble upon the same logical fallacies that christians do, but it's plausible that there could have been some sort of 'prime mover' so to speak for our universe.

    about God and religion recently. I'm tolerant toward religions, as long as I'm not having other people's beliefs shoved in my face. Personally, I have not seen any proof of there being a divine being. I honestly don't know if there is a way to prove it. That's my stance, though...

    This Might Be Controversial.

    I am agnostic, another way of putting it would be on the fence I suppose.  Is there a God? The most honest answer I can give to that question is I don't care. There I said it, I don't care. At this point it wouldn't matter anyway. There are those that would deny his...

    The opposite of religion is atheism,

    but the opposite of religious arrogance, is agnosticism. Agnosticism is coming to terms with the imminent fact, that one still doesn't actually know the true origins of the universe and life. It does not concern itself with the perpetual rantings of monotheism, led on by the...

    Problems With Religion

    I used to say I was atheist.  How easy it is to say that you do not believe in anything, that you are free from religion and all of its splendor.  You have nothing to fear, nothing to have to worship.  You had nothing, in a very literal sense.  So then I began...
