    I was never bought up

    as religious. I first became aware of it when I went to school. You see, back in the 1970s some schools in the UK were still populated by the 'old school' Teachers bought up in the halcyon days of the 1950s, where Sunday School and church were a focal point of what is was to be...

    I'm not going to believe in a God

    that tells me I'm inferior because I have a vagina. It does not make sense and basically proof that religion is made up by men.

    Never Have, Never Will

    I have never gone to church, even as a child. My mother believed that I should be the one to decide what religion I would follow, and now, I dont really want to follow any. To me, a lot of them just limit you. You have to do this, do that. and a lot of those people all seem to be...

    Not That I Don't Want One...

            When I was young, like really young, we went to a catholic church. I went to Sunday school, I was babtised, I was getting ready for a communion. (I still don't really know what that is...) However, by the age of 7, we stopped attending church. My mother began to...

    I don't have a religion.

    My family is all Christian But I could never accept it. I'm not saying I don't believe in god. I just can't lay my problems to someone just because someone says he/she is real because that's what they believe. I carry my own burden and ask for no ones help. My challenges in my...

    Feels Like A Divorce

    It has been about a month after my decision not to continue to live as a Catholic.  It happened mainly because it was time for me to pass on all of the usual rituals of baptism and communion to my son.  I suddenly began to reflect on my life as a Catholic and how strongly I...

    But That Doesn't Make Me An Atheist,,,

    My boyfriend is a hardcore atheist.  To him, there is nothing in this world that cannot be explained with science.  Anything he cannot explain with science, he believes is still explainable using scientific terms - we just don't know what those terms are.   The...

    I Choose Not to Have One

    I feel that most religions tie you down to one way of life. I prefer to just call myself diverse. I don't have a problem with people who have strong religions though. Especially christianity and other religions of the like because I would have to say they have the strongest...

    I Believe In Nothing Religious.

    I have absolutely no belief in God and I can't even consider such nonsense. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but I've only met one or two people in my life that did and I was married to both. Am I so unusual to have no faith? Is the human brain so wired for it...

    More And More

    I've come to realize I'm not suited to be a 'member/follower' of any type of religion. I just remember watching people in church 'getting the holy spirit' and jumping around and 'speaking in tongues' and wondering why I didn't feel it? What was wrong with me. At this time I was...

    Why Should There Be Religion?
