I'm religious, because science only deals with the material world we live in, and religion takes it from where science stops, and really just think it wouldn't make sense if everything we lived in happened by chance, and there wasn't a reason for us to exist, except for the sake of existing, so yeah those are my views ^_^

I've been reading and it looks like people are more just misunderstanding each other....I'm an atheist myself.
people are saying its to "perfect" for earth to be just a chance ,but i don't think there putting the other googolplex amount of of planets that isn't like earth.
As for where i stand in religion i don't care what is true.....i'll believe what i want and i'm not going to push it on to others

If you watch Christopher Hitchen's or Richard Dawkin's debates, you will understand why I reject a totalitarian monster

I was raised Christian. And with aging comes wisdom; i peiced together my own thoughts and beliefs and found my own way. I don't like the labels that come with religeon. You don't have to choose one, just belive what you think is right. I'm verry
Proud of myself for coming to this realisation early on.

for those of you who think the bible and science clash. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76Fh_REVtY4

i would like to have an open and civil discussion. however if someone gets hostile and rude i will leave the discussion at wherever it happens to be.

its a looong video. but very good and scientific. (oh ya and as for evolution which is provably false. if u want to know my position on that read Evolution the fossils still say no! very good read i was on the edge about evolution thinking it was a possbility at least and it just shredded thru my illogical belief.)

i am christian no denomination, only go to calvary chapel associated churches tho. as for why? watch the above video. creation testifies of gods existence.

Yes, because it is where my life has brought me. Also I was raised as it (Soto Zen), so it kind of just is.

People like you are the reason why garbage like intelligent design is trying to fill biology classes instead of evolution in the eastern Christian white trash part of America. Please keep science in science classes and crap like religion out. And evolution has been proven multiple times (micro like in bacteria and macro as in those fossils u dismiss). On another note, religion and science DO contradict in many occasions. The only religion that can coexist with science is Deism, which is the belief that a non-interfering god governs the universe. Other than that, other theologies have failed for centuries to take into account scientific discoveries. But to conclude, please don't put religion into places where it should NEVER belong.

On a side note, sorry if I came off as a little harsh. It's just that thoughts like these are the backbone warrants for why intelligent design is being accepted into Christian populous parts of America. I find fault with all religions but I'm not going to tell people what to not worship on their free time. As a science major, I'm just mad people can get away with saying things like "evolution is false and I have proof" when that's not the case at all. And I'm mad at the fact that these false criticisms are the reason why religion is trying to change science when it doesn't even belong there. "Separation of church and state". Please keep it like that and don't influence education!

I'm Buddhist but I don't really classify it as a religion but a way of life.

Also I never had to go out to get followers either.

I went to Catholic school when I was younger simply because it was the closest. Kept my beliefs to myself and no one ever knew.

i understand the getting frustrated at what you see as people spreading lies/untruth. and i accept your appology. first off did you even watch the video? have you heard the evidence against evolution? science at its core is the effort to disprove things no theory can be proven only disproven. He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

i would happily concede that i am wrong if you would debate with me and give me evidence. i seek only the absolute truth (whether or not i like it).

as for evolution im not quite sure where to start. there is the entropy problem and then the origin of information. honestly all evidence i have seen makes the universe appear as if it was made specificaly for man.

also carbon dating is completely unreliable. so many flaunt it as fact when thats just not the case.

the only clashes i have seen between christianity and science is either only temporary (said clashing theory is eventualy proved wrong) or the result of people altering scripture to sound more reasonable so its really only between science and religion(catholic "church") that the problem exists. the only expample i can remember atm. is this

"their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain." now the proper translation is "Their Projectiles shall be as a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain" what does the more exact translation sound like its describing to you?

though i digress a bit. first off you didnt provide evidence and you just stated your view as if it was fact. a major mistake in any debate and if you do not wish for debate then why apologize for what is essentially just an attack on me and my position? if you actualy wish to debate watch the video through.

oh and as for that last bit. seperation of church and state. the state is not to make ANY laws regarding religion. whatsoever. meaning they have no right to ban the teaching of religion in school. if you dont like it find a school in a community with like minded people and move there or deal with it. as for intelligent design being taught in school i live in california. i have never ever witnessed this and would be wary of it anyways as it is most often catholic influenced and their teachings of the bible tend to be full of holes because of the things their church has altered.

Is this actually a question for other people to answer or are you just using it to bitch about other people's opinions/beliefs?
if you don't like other people's beliefs, and you only like to talk about your own... then go live in a cave with yourself.

And yes i do believe in God.... and before you start judging me for it, just to let you know... i don't care whether you believe in God or not. Man has their own choices. Whether you want a relationship with God or not is all you. i don't care, but don't act like an ass to other people that do. Grow up and show some respect for people.
This hypocritical hate thing that people got goin' on is stupid. Grow the hell up, for cryin' out loud!
