but if u dont believe in god then thats atheism which is now counted as a religion so u have a bit of a contradiction there.


Lol, i don't completely not believe in a god - i'm probably more of an agnostic than an atheist dontknow

Strange that you can count atheism as a religion.
Surely a religion should be defined as a specific set of beliefs - the definition of an atheist being someone who has no such beliefs.
Very strange.

I've never done anything for Lent - and i was feeling random at the start, so i've gone Veggie!! It's something i've always wanted to do, and it's great to know that i've finally done it!! Very Happy

Now it's like two weeks into Lent - how many people have broken it already? Wink

Have you become a veggie Annie!!!!!!!!!! Thats really great, hope you spread the message. Welcome to our world.

an atheist is someone who doesnt believe in god therefore having a very definite belief. i hope i dont offend anyone but i think agnosticism is so stupid. its almost as if ppl cant be bothered thinking thru their beliefs enough to actually make their mind up

But its a big thing to think through - how can you ever possibly be sure? (Again, hoping I don't offend anyone) I mean, this is life, the universe and everything - its not something that everyone can feel they have an answer to.

Personally i strongly disagree, a definition of agnostoc is - One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God. And personally i think that's fine, because how can we possibly know? There are no definitive arguments for or against - or at least there aren't that work for me dontknow If i wasn't feeling ill, you'd all get one of my R&P lectures on this - be thankful people!! Very Happy

And yup Arka!! Like i said, i've always wanted to be, i just don't like the idea of anything getting hurt. I think the trigger was i saw a dead fox on the side of the road  on Pankake Day and it actually made me cry Crying or Very sad

its not something u can have a definite answer to and thats why its called belief and faith.you surely must be inclined to believe one thing that you think more evidence points to than the rest and if you dont i would say u havent really looked at the issue at all otherwise you would have an opinion and i think that if u havent explored the issues of what you think about "big questions" as they called them at school then its stupid (as i said above). i know this will come across as really opiniated and please dont take offence anyone but i would say the sign of an intelligent person is someone who tries to find answers to things and tries to expand their knowledge and how can you really do that without thinking of the fundamental questions of life, the universe and everything.
sorry that i didnt say that very eloquently but i hope u know what i mean
