    If you choose belief over love then you should reevaulate your life choices
    Lol what the hell....this is not even the question

    It's saying would you choose to marry someone who differed in religion to you not would you reject someone you were already in love with over religion?

    Also, love although important is not everything, it's important to look at things practically as well.

    I would have rather have had my 'indoctrination' and my mothers Christian influence on my life growing up now that I have a relationship with Jesus and I'm 100% sure I'm going to heaven than to be brought up in other faith, have no assurance of where I'm going after I die and when I die, go to hell.

    I wouldn't teach my kids about Santa either tbf, but then, you being an atheist, are probably now going to ask what's the difference between Jesus and Santa, aren't you

    This is the point where I tell you this is why I couldn't be married to an atheist and this is why it wouldn't work out between me and an atheist
    No, I was brought up in a (lightly) Christian family and I get why people believe in gods; because it's somewhere to place faith (I mean let's be honest, who actually has any faith in humanity?), plus it's a way of explaining stuff. But l like I've said many times: I grew up getting bullied like there was no tomorrow. That made me think to myself "why do I still believe in this *******?" So as I grew curious I researched more religions and found they all say pretty much the same stuff; I researched mythology and it seemed more believable than the religion I'd been taught. I researched science and science made sense; it followed the same logical way of thinking as I did, so I grew an understanding of the subject very quickly. My understanding of science kept on leading to me spotting flaws in the religion, inaccurate texts and what seemed like blatant lies. That's why I'm an atheist, because I just simply don't know what the truth is.

    Maybe your faith was less strong to begin with then, I got bullied somewhat violently in high school, I don't know how badly it would compare to your experiences or even if experiences such as bullying can or should be compared. Despite being bullied I was always 100% confident there was a God, even if I wasn't quite sure which God it was. Then I became a Christian properly and became sure that the God I always felt in my heart that was real was the Christian god.

    Funniest thing was I had always enjoyed science, chemistry in particular, to the extent I always got A's and A*'s in it at GCSE and beyond. I'm a university chemistry student and my faith is as strong as it's ever been and I know other Christians like myself who have studied science beyond high school level.

    I'm not about to start preaching here; just to point out, as far as I know, Christianity is the only faith which doesn't encourage works to get into heaven, most other religions do. To get into heaven in Christianity you have to believe in Jesus and that's it

    I would, yes. It depends on the person and how far they would want to push their religion into my life, like trying to convert me or make me follow their practises which aren't mine. These are all things you'd talk about when becoming more serious in a relationship. Their expectations and your expectations, establishing boundaries and stuff.

    depends if they were preachy or it affected them or their life. if they believed in god we could agree to disagree... if they were a practising religious person it would probably make it more difficult depending on their devotion. if they were muslim i am still eating bacon and sausages sorry

    I think religion and belief are two distinct things and people are confusing two different things. Religion, if you accept the term (many do not because it's a Euro-Christian analytical category imposed onto faiths as diverse as Buddhism to Islam. The term assumes characteristics, traits, habits and hierarchies, which mirror or are so similar they could mirror each other. But these assumption are based entirely on a Western Latin Church model and not on the internal dynamics of other faiths. This is an important caveat), does not merely signify belief and what you believe is not the only thing that is important (unlike what Protestant discourse assumes). indeed religion is often about community, lineage, land, social custom, politics, public discourse and welfare, in addition to what you personally believe.


    Believing in God does not mean believing in religion, religion is often about human activity rather than a profession of belief in God. But religious and belief systems are far from monolithic, probably the greatest cardinal sin of the term religion, is the implied assumption of monolithic entity. Most people here are unlike to have studied a page of every single sacred faith text from different faith traditions (assuming the faith tradition in question has one), yet they feel confident enough to issue judgement on every single belief system from Shintoism to Sufism. They can only do so because of the narrative that religion as a analytical category lends itself.


    Perhaps a Muslim girl by faith rather than by religion could have a beautiful relationship with an Atheist man by default rather than by identity. After all, personal beliefs are personal beliefs, but this can never happen or ever be known if pre-judgement are made.

    That's not true: the Roman Catholic Church believes in faith AND works, not just faith alone. Unless you're one of these people who think the Catholics aren't Christians... :hmmm:
