I'm gonna start a new relegion called Me-ism.  It's a relegion that benefits me.  Gonna get some followers, apply for church status, get some tax breaks, etc.

:lol:


Already exists, it's called Objectivism. Your name wouldn't happen to be Paul Ryan would it?

Was raised as a Christian... Protestant... Knox United in Kerrisdale. Went to Sunday School / Youth group until I was 13. Never have done my Confirmation.

Still practice some of the values I learned. I also practice "Do unto others...". Karma is also important, to me.

Go, Canucks, go!

Raised a Christian, still a Christian. I keep it to myself (other than posting this I guess). I believe in some values, disagree with some others.

Atheist. Most of the world's religions believe I should be killed on sight.

Actually, a lot of atheists I know believe the same thing.

I don't go out much anymore.

Surprised to see how many people didn't vote for a religion...I guess as people get older they stray away from religions they might have been brought up with and start forming their own beliefs...which I guess is good

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

I don't really know. The idea of eternal life is as scary as the idea of death. Really, I have no idea what will happen to me when I die, and I have no intention to worry about it.

Really though, if you think about it, is eternal really what you'd want? A start with no end... ever.

I'm agnostic. You cannot prove or disprove god; I refuse to blindly chose one or the other. I also don't care about religion.

My parents never pushed any sort of religion on me or my siblings so 2/3 of us are now agnostic.

no, the problem with Christianity (coming from a Christian) is all the holier than thou bigots running around calling other Christians not really Christians, just because their version of Christianity doesn't match with the other people's version.

That and the people trying to force their religion on everyone all the time. Religion is a personal belief, respect everyone else's.


I totally agree with this. I never had ever ever EVER had a Muslim Hindu, or anyone else, kinda for their believe on to me somehow. I respect everyone, but there are some that come out as very aggressive an annoying.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.


Logic at its finest.

All of the above; the way I figure it, the differences are on humanity's end, not God's. We're the ones with the limited perspective and incomplete understanding, obviously where there are errors or differences of interpretation it would be due to cultural and linguistic differences or individual differentiation in humanity. When you get down to it, the various faiths are actually startlingly similar, the differences are mostly on the surface and don't go to the heart of the matter. There's a school of thought in Hinduism called Vedanta which really gets to the heart of these argument.

I think religion is still well ahead of science when it comes to the search for truth and understanding. Religion has thousands of years on science, for one thing, and also science tends to focus more on practical advances, it moves by small increments, and of course it is much more rigorous about testing and falsifiability. That's not a criticism; I believe that science will eventually prove that much of what religion says is accurate, but we don't have the technology to make most religious claims testable at present. I've been doing lots of reading about physics lately, and I think our current understanding is remarkably close to what Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita, and if you don't want to take my word for it, Schrodinger and Opperman thought so too.

When people go criticizing religion, some of the high profile academics who are stridently anti-religious like to point to all the wars and violence where religion or religious difference have been invoked, but that's not what these wars are really about. Humanity has always had violence and conflict, with religion or otherwise. Where religion is a major force or organizing principle in society, it gets invoked when there's conflict. When religion is less prominent, people find some other justification or some other ideology. It's not religion that's the problem, it's human nature, indeed the nature of life is to struggle and come in conflict with other life, that's not going to change if we stop being religious.

Despite all this, they say that one naturally gravitates towards the beliefs one was raised on. I grew up christian, Mennonite to be specific, and it's an appealing worldview and belief system that I like and feel comfortable with. I definitely have the distrust of technology! But I also find a lot of good things in hinduism, buddhism, paganism. Some of the other denominations and abrahamic faiths seem a little strident to me, and some don't, but I find that generally religious people are good people, kind and charitable and understanding, and more open-minded than the internet gives us credit for.
