    how many

    people in the OTF community are agnostic/atheistic (sp?)? it seems like a high number to me... as for myself, i am catholic by birth, but i dont really follow the rules... i am more agnostic than anything... i havent told my rents, cuz they would kill me (and my mom has gotten on a church craze lately, bah!!!!!!!), but i just dont really think there is a supreme being out there... or it there is, how did it get there, etc... anyway, back to my original question... who here is agnostic/atheistic?

    I have a great problem with all religions and philosophies who believe in all-powerful, eternal and faultless entities.

    I also don't believe in any world views that makes the human being something special apart from other material things.

    Finally the whole concept of salvation seems quite abhorrent to me.

    I was born and raised a catholic, and even was the best student to ever attend my Sunday school (big whoop!). I guess I just got too smart and asked too many questions. Athiest now.

    I'm a heathen. Last night I had a huge bonfire and we sacrificed some babies.

    Good times.

    one vote for Protestant.

    I know you only asked for atheist/agnostic but I felt it would be nice to know how many of everything we got here.

    I'm fiercely athiest, and am against all forms of religion.

    dats true... might as well say what u are... religious/religion or atheistic/agnostic

    and yea... the more i think about it, the more i come up with questions about "God" and how he came to be, and why... im more of a reasonal person... i need things explained other than "He made them" and thats the way it is...

    i believe in the evolution theory, as it were, and that is "against catholic religion" i guess... i did ask questions in my CCD/sunday school classes, but for some strange reason, they never got answered the way i wanted... wonder why...

    Well when you're older and sick and dying, I can see why you might turn to religion once again. Personally I think most religions stem from man's fear of death and the unknown. I mean, going to a land of extreme perfection does sound appealing, but it's completely not plausible in my world...

    I wouldn't exactly force yourself to become an atheist, just let things come as they do is my opinion. I'm glad I was raised a catholic as a child, because it fueled my fire for atheism. I think one drawback to being an atheist is my acceptance of things as they are. When the pope dies, he's going to be happy he lived his life and would now rise into the arms of God, so he'll die with a smile on his face. When I die, I'm going to think "Well, this is it. Game over man." And then die, and rot, like people do.

    I consider myself christian, but I do not practice my faith. At this point in my life, I cannot reconcile parts of the christian faith with how I feel personally. As a result, I've not renounced my faith by any means... but I don't practice it at all. I'm not sure exactly what that classifies me as.

    What Christian does practice their faith? Don't beat yourself up over it; in my eyes you're better off than 90% of the Christians I know, who "claim" to practice their faith. You get kudos from me either way.

    You could also add defensive to that if you wanted to just to make it even more interesting. ;)

    Agnostic, I really can't go all the way to athiest, Althought I might. I've never went to church, but for now agnostic seems fine with me.

    The CAP Alerts guy does. Obsessively. For an example, he wrote this in his review for the Butterfly effect.

    Anyways... Obviously I'm atheist. And, like GPBH I'm fiercly against any religion whatsoever. As James Madison once said, I believe "Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise."

    I'm Catholic by name, though I don't agree with most of it. I do beleive in one God, Jesus, His son, and the Holy Spirit, and that forgivness, good, salvation, and eternal life come through Them. Other than that, I don't really beleive in a specific religion.
