    Those of you who don't subscribe to religion, I'd like for you to tell us (in a single sentence) the reasons you abstain.


    Those of you who are religious, I'd like you to tell us why in one sentence too.


    If there are any fence sitters in, feel free to do the same.


    Thank you.

    (abstainer)

    If I only ever believed then I never knew.

    Interesting.
    See, I believe an atheist can be religious without God.
    Christ was (if its true) a real person.
    He may have believed in God (Jewish) but that doesn't mean we have to.
    Oh, and there is no clear teaching about Heaven in Judaism.

    And yet you still haven't explained what YOU mean by "religion".

    Christ was (if its true) a real person.
    If what's true? And the more we learn the less it seems that Christ existed at all.

    If this "god" thing does exist, then it better hope I never find out. I will find a way to hurt it! I will make it feel fear, doubt, and pain. I will break it's heart, I will cripple it. What it loves I will destroy, what it hates I will make ubiquitous. I will sodomize it with a skateboard griptape broom handle. I will see to it's suffering and eventual absolute end.
    But it is most likely that "it" has no existence, so I will instead walk in peace, and do my damndest to make a better world for all.
    Hmm... That was more than a single sentance, sorry.

    Are you sure you are not confusing "religious" and "spiritual".

    Hannah40 has passed across to another science forum http://thescienceforum dot o r g / since she was banished (banned) from this heavenly garden (this forum) by the Beast (one of the mods).


    You can catch her over there if you sign up there .She posts quite a lot.


    All the banned users names are in yellow so you can easily identify them and not waste your time answering their posts(which they cannot answer

    I believe because there are still many things science can't detect.

    As a child my personal interactions with religion were positive, church school and going to church with my aunt and uncle, however as an adult religion hasn't played any real part in my life, it doesn't have anything to offer me, beyond the obvious, weddings, christenings and funerals etc...

    Then how do you know they exist? Yes there are all sorts of fancifull creatures that fill our imaginations and we even pretend to speak to for guidance and whatnot--if science can't detect them, they are most likely just figments of our imagination--nothing more.
