    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...

    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 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.

    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...
