    Bible Belt

    I grew up in Missouri, in the heart of the Bible belt and in the midst of the most hypocritical, bigoted people I have ever encountered. No one of any ethnicity other than Caucasian even dared stop for gas in that neck of the woods. Many of the people I knew then were abusive...

    I Just Don't Know

    My dad is a Baptist pastor, so I've been raised with Christianity being implanted in me my entire life. But it just doesn't make sense. I am not throwing the idea of a higher being out the window, perhaps the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the answer?

    I Don't Know What I Believe

    I don't know what I believe anymore. Confusion should be my middle name. My thoughts and opinions on matters of life, love, career, and family seem to be in some sort of flux. When I was younger, and even most recently I have been open-minded to everything in the world. I must...

    I have been Christian, Wiccan, Jewish, Agnostic, and now I just don't know what I believe, but I do believe in SOMETHING... I guess I just feel left out because I don't have a label.

    I really, really want to believe in God with

    all of my heart but I just cannot bring myself to. I just have so many questions and doubts that I have never gotten answers for. I want to believe that when I die, I will go somewhere else, to this 'better place' that everyone is always referring to, but I am just not sure. I...

     I just don't know what to believe any more. I suppose I'm still an atheist, but a nihilist no longer. I've been through a lot in my short life, and I've experienced a lot of suffering. When I met her, everything became more complicated. I gave up fighting for control...

    Confused Really

    I guess it is just a stage of my life that I can't believe in anything. I mean I was raised into a very Christian family, but yet now the more I think the less logical it becomes. I do believe there is a god but not sure if it is the God many believe in.

    Confused, Mystified.. and Just Plain... Well, Confused!

    I grew up in a southern baptist church and was baptised there. After I was out on my own I was baptised in an LDS church. Later I looked into Wicca. I don't know that there is any one right religion, in fact I don't believe there is. I don't know what to believe in. I sometimes...

    Can't Make Up My Mind

    I have a bipolar personality. It means I'm never boring...but it also means I never really know where I stand on things. I can see, and equally agree with, both sides of just about anything. For instance, half the time I believe in fate, but other times I think we're just...
