    It Would Be Nice, But It Seems Too Ridiculous.

      I really think I would enjoy actually believing in some sort of a god, and being a part of a religious community.  I love the music, and the American cultural history of community churches.  But I cannot get myself to believe what seems like a strange and...

    I Don't Believe In the ...

    I don't believe in the mystery God that current religions say you should follow.  I tried to believe that an invisible man exist in the sky, but the longer you live and the more things you get to experience, the more you really start to question whether religion is something...

    I'm not cut out to live an Atheistic life.

    I don't think I have the mental fortitude or even the disposition to live a life like that. This is a time of my life where I need God the most, and where God seems the less present. I'm tired of this unending nightmare. I want to be well again, to be happy again and enjoy my...

    Sometimes, Things Are So Hopeless.

    I don't believe in God like a lot of people do - I don't worship any deity or lord, I don't praise him, I don't claim to have anything special.  I'm just a relatively normal kid with a bad outlook on life and horrible social skills.  In short, I'm alone in this world...

    I'm 19 years old and I was raised in a non-religious family. My dad used to say "I go to a round church where the devil can't corner me." That was the most we ever talked about religion. I've always considered myself agnostic as I was skeptical about God. I have always been...

    I want to believe but religion seems to be the opposite of what i am. I was taught religion but i never believed in it. The idea of god seems real to me but i have never found a religion that seems to call to me.
