    Talking to a few people on this forum made me realise there is a serious extreme in those who believe in God and those who simply don't…For me, there IS a God…
    Why do people assume being religious means you are not living life to the fullest? I think my religion is fairly simple and straightforward to follow…for others it may not be so but to each their own right? It is a free world
    But you live with restrictions. we should all be free people, not followers of cults.

    I don't know I actually like having a set or rules to follow and live my life upon..everyone has their own policies and code of conduct right? Religion is a very individual thing…somethings you may do together but mostly it between you and God…And I really like that. Yes some restrictions make me seethe quietly but others I know are plain downright for my own good.

    No I'm not, I see it as too restrictive and pointless.

    Can it not be argued that atheists are religious.? It being, the religion of nothing after death/ No God.
    Calling athiesm a religion is like calling not smoking a habit. Athiesm is not an attempt to explain the unknown or to provide morals and values it is simply a lack of belief in a deity and most atheists also lack beleif in anything supernatural such as ghosts or spirits or unicorns etc I still love unicorns though.

    Perhaps, it would had been more rational to look up the definition of what you're planning to comment on, beforehand.

    No, I understand why many religious people delude themselves into thinking there is someone up there watching over them, that there is such thing as heaven and that they will be reincarnated it. It's for comfort, for security.

    I'd like to visit a church, just to get that feeling I can only imagine feeling when in a place so sacred to so many people. I think I'd like to start regularly going to church when I grow up, maybe when I start university, but I will never believe in a god. Is this weird?

    No I hate anything that makes people think they can go to church or do something religious related and sit waiting to become millionaires without working for it. Religion is ****. The person who created the bible is ****.

    You can't just make this yes or no, what about the agnostics?
    seeing as no human knowledge is 100%, agnostic is the default for everybody technically speaking. you can be an agnostic anything, though. for example, I'm an agnostic atheist.

    In my honest opinion there is no God and anyone who says otherwise is a heretic. In the old days we were the heretics but not it's them :P
