    I pretty much agree with most of the people here.

    Yeah, I would consider myself more agnostic than anything else. I'm not athiest (although there's nothing wrong with that) because I'm not going to deny that there's something out there...but I really don't think anyone can truly know until they die.

    So yeah...:)heehee, basically just restating what everyone above me said.

    I'm Agnostic.

    I just don't know.

    and you can never be sure until you die, right?

    I believe we'll be reincarnated into another animal or plant.

    What do you all think?
    I think it's fine that you're Agnostic even though i really only know what you just told me lol at the moment i'm not anything i mean i believe there's is one ultimate being that created all of us but i'm looking for a religion i'd like to pursue the rest of my life...i was and am being brought up in a born again christian family i don't want to be that though and my father said god doesn't accepted and pitys gays and that's what i am so i want to find another religion to be

    I'm agnostic, because...
    I'm a wimp.
    And I'm not going to deny God(s) exists.
    But I also don't really believe in him/her/it.

    I do, however, believe that if something is up there, they're not as good as everyone says they are.
    Because really, do I deserve to go to hell for saying 'fuck' and refusing to apologise for it?

    Hmm...I've always had a small thought that living things will be reincarnated into a new body (possibly better or worse depending on what kind of person you were the previous life? I dunno, just a theory.) Again though, I'm not sure. Although if that's the case, then no one would truly ever know...perhaps it's better that way.

    Although if there is reincarnation, I don't think we would be reincarnated into plants. Although if I was plant, I'd want to be one of the really beautiful ones that smell terrible. That way I'd look nice, but no one would pick me...:)

    I more of a 'have to see it to believe it' person....I can't just follow something from a book.
    That just about sums up my belief. Show me it and I'll believe them, but the thing is that I feel that I know that 'they' are wrong.

    'They' meaning organized religion of course. :cute:

    What sort of facts?
    Very few people are left alive who actually experienced our modern history.
    And if we delve into ancient history, most if not all that we understand about it comes from what has been written about it.
    The Bible is a written account, right?, and yet because God is a matter of faith, the words of the Bible are not considered valid?

    -shrug-

    I'm not trying to push a point here, just showing the other side to the argument that we take a lot of other things we read as "proof".

    The bible is much much older, and has been translated many different times. History, although I don't think everything it says is definitely right, is a lot more valid than the Bible. :cute:

    There are many texts that are older than the Bible and we take them for granted. Historic texts. No-one doubts their authenticity. You can still read the original text -if you bother enough to learn the language- and new translations are usually made from the original version so they'll be more accurate.
    All we know about the Romans for example, we know from books and texts, the ruins and such provide only really small ''proof''. Everything you know you learn from somewhere.

    Yes, there are those documents that are older than the Bible, which I think is kinda cool and would be fun to study, but the reason that I don't go with the Bible is simply because I don't believe in it. It's just not my style. :cute: However, I'm totally down with history. It can be fun, even if you're not 100% sure that it's completely accurate. To be honest, I highly doubt a lot of things that our school's history books tell me. But, like sueno said, we have to learn from somewhere.

    Basically, my mom forced me to go to church when I was little.
    Now I'd rather go. My heart always feels relieved when I just confess things in prayer.

    But I'm not without my doubts. We can never be certain unless we actually see God or Jesus walks among us again. But even then people will doubt unless God performs a miracle.

    I also agree that there isn't atheism. Just 'agnosticism' [if thats a a word], because people who don't believe obviously doubt that God is real.
    Wow that kinda was a twisted round-about way of explaining. :(

    ^ I don't believe in God. I never have, ever. Sure, I believe in Jesus because there's proof behind his existence but I don't believe he performed miracles either. I don't doubt that God's real because I honestly do not even think that God may exist. Or ever did for that matter, or ever will.

    Which also means I don't believe in Hell, or the Devil. Considering the middle of the earth is solid, iron to be exact, I think.

    Agnostics-One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God.

    Atheists-One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.

    I believe I would be considered Agnostic. Occasionally I would go to church with my grandmother but I always felt out of place there, like I really didn't belong. Like Bleed The Dream said, I don't deny that Jesus existed but I have a hard believing that he was the miracle worker people made him out to be. I think I could never really acknowledge the existence of God because I always wondered how someone who was supposed to love all of us, let people suffer so much.

    I do think that there is some higher power though, and I believe in Karma. I guess I don't belong in a certain, fixed religion.

    So...thread revival. :shifty

    I'm Agnostic. I'm not quite sure how to tell my parents, I mean, they would probably understand. My family is most Catholic right now, but my dad believes in evolution and my mom has had bad experiences with religion. We didn't even go to church at all this past Christmas. :XD I don't think I've even been to church in months, come to think of it. :shifty

    I suppose I'm dreading having to tell my grandma, because she's a Bible Thumper. It's always by the holy book with her, hallelujah, Jesus, praise the Lord. I don't want to argue with her, but she's going to try to convert me back, I just know it. :XD

    As many other people here, I am Agnostic. I base my beliefs on logic and since god cannot be proven by humans, I have not evidence for or against it.

    I’m in pretty much inn the same predicament as unique. except for the grandmother part. :)

    I guess I consider myself Agnostic. I don't know what it's like to believe in God, or to go to church or... anything to do with religion. I want to believe in God, but I can't. It's like.. forgein to me.
    But like everyone else here.. there is NO way of knowing what's real and what's not real.

    I became Agnostic a few years ago. I do not believe that we can find out what religion to believe in if any of them are even right at all. There were many, many religions before today's popular religions were created, so how do we know if these popular religions are correct? Also, what if there is no god?

    I consider myself Agnostic, but I do hold beliefs from the Christian faith, I just alter them a bit.

    Like, I believe in a type of heaven, only, not. I believe that everyone is first in a beautiful, happy, crime-free place where nothing ever goes wrong. If a person is bad in that life, they come to Earth - In a way, Earth is Hell to me. - but if they were good, they go to an even better place than the one they live in already.

    I'm confusing myself, putting that down in words.

    In my head, it makes perfect sense.
