What religion do you follow? I'm an Atheist, even though the rest of my family are Christians. :twisted:

"Other" because I'm Agnostic. There's no proof that god exists and there's no proof that god doesn't exist. Therefore, either is possible.

I'm a Christian, but I don't beleive what the church is doing is correct in God's light, so I've stopped going there. I worship God, not the church...

I'm Christian as well. Yeah our church is turning kind of wierd. I don't agree with some of the new stuff they're doing and a lot of other people don't and then they wonder why fewer people are showing up.

It's hard to find good churches these days, since so many are so interested in themselves. They don't care about worshipping God, they just care about their own popularity. I go to a Messianic congregation on Saturdays rather than to a more common church on Sundays. Part of the reason I go is because my dad really likes it and is very Jewish at heart (though not on the outside), the other part being that they really have good praise and worship and a good message, and you can feel God's presence there more than the other places I've been too. I'm not Jewish in or out, but I do consider that place my church.

Christianity.

I don't believe in what our church is doing either. They use most of the money they get to improve the building instead of helping people like they should be doing with all the money that they recieve.

I do believe that God exists, but I don't believe everything in the Bible or the Church. I am a Quaker. We are more laid back and open minded than other forms of Christianity, we don't have any set prayers or rituals. We worship God in our own ways, and try to concentrate on more important things in life. I mean for example: God exists, okay, but where did God come from? No offense yo anyone, but I find it hard to believe that God was just "there" the whole time, even before time. I don't believe in the "Big bang theory." How can an explosion of particles and atoms create an ordered, beautiful universe full of life? Even if it were true, where did the particles and atoms come from?
Therefore, I believe that someone or something (which we call "God") created the universe. I can accept that. What we Quakers ask is why and how God created the universe.
Quakers are also very tolerant of other peoples religions. I believe that God does exist. If you don't agree then that's fine with me, as God gave us free will and free choise.

I'm Christian, although I rarely go to mass... but I still pray... =P

But still, I still go to temples and pay respects to my dead Chinese "ancestors", and my recent dead relative; my grandfather's mom, who died last last friday... 98 yrs. old... amazing...

I'm agnostic, so I voted other. I don't know about God, but I think the Bible and other religious books (for a greater part) are just stories.

I am Christian *didnt know so many people were christian on pe2k*

I don't think this poll is representative. It could be, but at this moment, only 12 out of 384 people voted that they're christian.

Is there anything wrong with non believers? I'm atheist, but I find people's religions nowadays are making cracks in how people get along.

It is proven fact that worshipping a God or Gods originated because people could not explain their existence or natural phenomena. I tend to follow science, and I believe the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution. The Christian faith, as well as almost every other religion, contradict and clash what science says, so I'd find it hard to be a severely religious scientist.

Now, while I may not be religious, I do have an admiration for architecture, and the crap they build lately and call churches is stupid. If you want to see REAL church architecture, look at Reims and the like in France. Or the old stone churches in the country.

And, FYI, Atheism is NOT a religion. It's defined as a lack thereof...

Do any Buddhists actually believe in any form of God? I'm not being disrespectful or anything, I respect other people's beliefs, I was just curious. I've heard that Buddhists don't have a God, they just have the prophet Buddah (Spelling?). I just wondered if there are any Buddhists that believe in a God.

I, personally, am trying to find where history ends and religion starts. A lot of what is in the Bible is historic, but the details seem to sway and change depending on the religion, or lack there of. So, I'm slowly researching what religion says what happened in different events.

Notice how every culture/religion has a creation story. And alot of them have flood storys.

Ironshell Blastoise
03-27-2004, 03:37 AM
If it is a religion, it has a creation story.

And yes, a lot of religions have a flood story. Too bad the Greeks and Romans' flood was a LOT earlier than Noah.

I'm more talking about what Jesus did, if he was a real historical person. In no religious reckonings, I want to find out what he did HISTORICALLY, and not the Christian relgion says. I want to know what history says.

What if I am? I'm planning to change/ditch my religion when I grow up, because I don't believe in some of the stuff Buddhists believes in, and I don't think praying a million times to "God" would let you win the lottery :rolleyes:

Buddhists have a lot of gods/deities...Here's a good information site(I think. It was the first site that showed up when I searched "Buddhism" on Yahoo.): http://www.religioustolerance.org/buddhism.htm

I only know about what the bible says about Jesus.

There was also something interesting where scientists were adding up digitd or something for the sun. The digits didn't come out right so they added the two times in the bible when the sund stopped and the digits came out right. My science teacher told me that.

My interest in what Jesus did (according to history) started when we were learning about world religions in World History. I felt it had a good deal of information that told about what he did as a "person" and not the "messiah".

Im a Christian, I believe in God and Jesus and all that stoof but I only go to church for family weddings, funerals and christenings...... not out of choice :smile:

Idol worshipper? isnt that the whole idea of religions anyway? to pray to God (or whoever/whatever you believe in). If you mean to idolise another human then I dont do that....... although I do frequently wish I was Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, ex-QOTSA, Probot) and he's kinda my idol :lol:

Well, if your church is like that, then you need to find a new church, because they're obvoiusly wrong. :confused:

Yes, well if so, he may have had a bad experience in a church that he went to. If this is true, he should not base his reasoning on just that bad experience, and should try other churches. They aren't all the same you know. I've been to some churches that are so bland and stuck up that I can't stand them, but then I've been to others that just want to make jump up out of my seat! There are some good churches out there, you just have to find them. :smile:

I don't mean A church or churches... Not the kind of church that sermons are held in, the Christian Church as a whole. Although it has quite a lot of sections anyway.
