hey, i was a believer a few years ago. somebody told me something about god and i was very interested in that. So i went to a church, i liked it very much, there were much young people, they had music cool music with e-guitars and so i get a member there.

A year later i was a preacher and missionary in a free church in my town, but over the next two years i lost my faith, becasue of seeing to much bad things.
by the way i gratuated a bible-college.

now im a atheist, and im annoying about spending so much time for that... i could be a very good guitar-player if accounted that time to play guitar and not preach that crap...

I believe there is more to the world than we know, or can even ever comprehend. God? Just the universe? Who knows.
There are many things that can be said, but I think that just being content is the most important. It's not like we'll ever -know-. smile.gif

I find it very difficult to believe that there is a god though I recognise that many people get great inspiration and comfort from their faith. I dont need a god for that, a walk in the hills or a smile from my daughter is enough for me!

So in short I am an athiest, that is my belief.

Organised religion does bother me greatly as it is used so often as a means of opression and an excuse for war and conflict.

I do not believe in god, won't call it atheism, it's more like agnosticism.

hehe, I would say that is impossible to prove. Besides, noone said that human DNA is constructed by coincidence. Human DNA is (if you believe in the scientific approach) evolved from simpler patterns..

Well said smile.gif

Agnostic. I don't know what to believe, but I can't accept that our organized religion is the right spiritual path, there are too many little rules, loopholes and divisions. I don't see that our churches of today are any different than the pagan practices that they've replaced and incorporated. I also think the 'answer' is out there, as far as how we have come to be here, the history of the universe itself etc.

I don't hold any personal grudges against religion, and I used to attend church, but my mind doesn't accept that as the answer.

This has always been an interesting topic to me...
I think many many people believe in something more..
It's such a hard topic though, things get complicated especially because of religion.
Religion is I think something made by men to organize, categorize and make sense of things that are beyond us...
That's why so many are turned off by it. Rules and regulations often made by men are defeating the whole purpose of what I think God intended for us.

I believe that all the God wants is to restore the relationship that was once broken. He just wants us to come back to him, and I think he made a way for that...

Very interesting topic! :-)

For me, it means that at this moment, I still don't believe in God and come up with many reasons to say he doesn't exist.

I find that religion is the cause of to many violent conflicts. Therefore i distance myself from religion, but sometimes it can be a relief to have a higher power to carry ones sins and responsebility.

Is there any proof that "God" actually exists ? Because a lot of people have proven that he/she/it doesn't exist !

Well if you compare an active religious person to that I can't see how that's an active one. smile.gif
Or maybe, I don't really know how you can be an active Atheist otherwise.

You say something is proven, how can there be proof for the contrary?

btw: You can proove nothing
