    I believe in god. I don't believe in any of

    these religions written by man. My Mother wants my sisters and I to become muslim and I don't want to be muslim. I'm not sure what to do. I respect everyone's beliefs and religion though.

    Well I Don't Know....

    I'm not sure what I believe... My parents are Christian, but we don't go to church. I mean it's not like I oppose religion. But I don't understand it and I think it was fabricated by ancient humans and passed down through generations. Like folktales I guess. I mean I do pray...

    Religion Is War

    Religious beliefs to me were always kind of funny because of the way they claim they want peace and harmony and that the morals of religion A are better/more important than the morals of religion B. Yet at the same time they can't see that all religions want the same thing...

    it impossible to relate all religions (except

    for Mormons and scientologists). The different beliefs by different people dont just make any sense with the evolution of man. Muslims are like Allah is the only god, dont pray him and the rest 6 billion ppl go to hell. Christians go like praise Jesus and Hindus believe like in...

    Standing on the outside looking in,

    gives me perspective and opens my heart. It allows me to see the good and beauty of other faiths. So far, the only ones that have condemned me are the bible Christians. Fortunately they are not God!

    You tell someone a plate is hot they have to

    touch it to see if it is. You tell someone there's a man in the sky they believe you.

    God's law is the only law.

    God's law is love. Therefore if it is not of love, it is not of God. Apply this to your religious teachings. Are you worshiping God or the book?

    My parents are both very religious (Catholic).

    I am atheist. I believe that we have evolved over time from single cell organisms... It is the only logical reason why we are here. And there is so much evidence proving this! I do not hate on those who believe in god nor do I think they are unintelligent for following a religion...
