Neither. I'm the type of person who deals in what can be proven or explained logically. This is one of those topics that cannot be proven or disproven. Since this is the case I would rather put my belief into the better outcome. After all, if I die and it turns out I'm wrong, that's it. If I die and it turns out I'm right, heaven awaits.

So by default, I might as well believe in God. I see no logical reason not to. Again, I am merely saying I believe in God. Not to what I believe in from those books. Just clarifying that.

Agnostics are unsure if god exists or doesn't exist. Typically they believe they will find out when they die. They aren't Atheists.
Not quite true.

An agnostic is one who asserts that whether or not there is a god or the like is inherently unknowable, this is the opposite of gnosticism where one asserts that they know for a fact whether god exists or not. Athiesm and theism are completely seperate in that those deal with whether or not you believe in whether or not a god exists. You can have agnostic atheists, gnostic athiests, agnostic theiests, and gnostic thiests.

True there are agnostics who are ambivalent in their belief of whether a god exists or not, but there are also agnostics who believe in a god, and agnostics who believe there is no god, they just don't claim that their belief can be verified.

Why:
I was raised early on as Christian. Later practiced Jehovah's Witness. Read on Catholicism. In my young adult life I saw a lot of perceived rigid bothersome ideas. After a while I decided on Agnosticism, my own moral code, and thoughts as to what I expected from a spiritual benevolent teacher(or God if you desire). I then met some people and shared ideas and experiences with them. Some of which were really out there, but the experiences were seemingly undeniable, and the ideas cohesive and sensible. It was from these that i have now started to lean towards beliefs similar to spiritualism.

What
:
I don't believe in God as most do; a father who is omnipotent and omniscient. I think of God as an all encompassing spiritual force of good and enlightenment. That organized religion is a great idea for positive community events, but was never asked for by God. That rather than focus on God, the goals of your current life should be to: find your way or place, achieve personal growth(purposely being very general), and show kindness to others along the way.

Wasn't really looking to go into how I think this or how the spiritual design works. The ideas and events have been greatly exploited and people usually stop listening because of it.

Agnostic.

My family was Buddhist for a long time, until I brought them into Christianity when I was young. Now, they're all Christian and I've recanted my beliefs. They don't know. They don't need to know. I'll still go with them to church to make them happy but I've been agnostic for at least 7 years.

Christianity is not a religion but a faith.

If you Google, you would see some pretty ignorant remarks made by people such as the ones who put up "rational wiki".

Their dumb anti-faith dribble falls apart pretty quickly...

- The tax exempt status of churches is based on definition of what a church is (places of worship) and not whether it's a religion or not.
- Pascal was a philosopher. Do people really think that Christianity is bound by Pascal's Wager or any particular "argumentation"?
-They pick on the dictionary definition, yet also conveniently forgets that terms such as "sin" and "grace" are also "idiosyncratic"- They're not common terms used in common ways
- They quote scripture piecemeal and with no regard for context

...and it goes on and on.

It's strange because I believe in Jesus Christ. That he is the son of God and I suppose on a small level I do believe in God. However, I never mention my religion much and it doesn't factor strongly into my life.

I was raised a Roman Catholic, but i got disillusioned with it at a young age.
Having nothing but shit happen at every turn in your life will do that.

Also, i found it to be a whole bunch of nonsense and shenanigans even then.
I don't fear the unknown, therefore i have no need of it.

As for what i believe/am nowadays? I'd say Atheist, maybe even a bit Agnostic.
I never gave it much thought since i don't see the need for it.

Apathetic Agnosticism. I like mythology, but I'm not religious. I'm also open to possibilities, yet I don't put much more thought into it beyond that. I don't like it when people use their religion or lack thereof as excuses to be assholes.

I am an atheist. I had something of a fear of God but I was never really devoutly religious when I was younger. I never prayed and I slept whenever I was taken to church. My grandparents stopped taking me when I was about 9 or 10.

As I got older, I slowly started "falling out" of a belief or fear in God and started calling myself an atheist when I was 14. I don't scorn anyone for their religious beliefs but I don't appreciate being proselytized to.
