Religion, in my opinion, is a bad institution. I believe in free-spirituality.

Part Agnostic, because I don't give a damn whether there's a God or not, and part Athiest because truthfully, science has come through for me far more often than 'God' or whomever this elusive entity claims his/her/it's name is. Where was he when my father passed away at 51 with cancer? In fact, if this so-called God loves us all so much, why does cancer exist in all it's flavors in the first place? I rest my case. Athiest: I believe in science.

Oh, and don't bother trying to defend your religion against what I've said. What you do or don't say won't change my outlook, it'll just fuel the fire. You see, all my life, everyone involved in religion that I've ever known has always tried to press their beliefs on me and people around me. Which is another reason why I dislike religion. It turns you into a cultist, why else would you send a pair of people knocking on others' doors preaching that if you only open your heart, the 'lord' will spread throughout your body and into your life and help make you a better person. I don't need to hold onto the thought of something I'm not even certain exists to get me through the day. I'm quite alright day-to-day knowing that yes, life sucks sometimes, and I have nobody to blame but myself for my downfalls, and then again nobody to praise for my achievements but myself.

xyphur, you sound like you've just finished grade 9, taken your RATM CD out of your CD player and think you're the shits, problem is you're 24 ... wtf?

The question was, if anyones forgotten, "What religion are you part of?" ... not, 'flame the fuck out of christians', btw, incase you've also forgotten, there are more faiths out there than the traditional christianity you've been exposed to.

I'm with Fenris on this one.

btw xyphur i suggest you take your grevinces to a priest/rabbi/imam.. i think you'd find that religion has been around for an awful long time.. no one question (such as suffering) is going to bring i to its knees.

Xyphur says:

qwertz, it's been some time since grade 9, I'm actually quite happy, I don't listen to RATM (they suck), I didn't intend on flaming anything or anyone, and yes I realize there are numerous faiths out there. Thing is, they're all very similar. Read the later half of the secod paragraph in my first post above, and if you can understand what I mean by needing and idea to get thru the day, then you'll understand why I don't like religions in general. I'm the one living my life... not the idea. So why infect MY life with someone else's ideas?

khelmir, go read The Da Vinci Code. If you read closely, you'll catch details uncovered about one of Leonardo's most famous works, The Last Supper. Compare certain facts with what is written in the bible and related works of literature. Insight into the falseness and misleading nature of religion as we've "known" it for quite some time, like you say.

In bringin up my father's passing, I was merely providing example for how obsurd the idea is that a bein exists that is supposed to have all this love for us, yet if he does exist, we never actually see proof of it. Truth is, my father's death was just a part of his life, just like my death will be a part of mine. And yours. And the guy sitting next to you. I understand that death is merely another fact of our existance here.

I'm sorry if my words are a little at-the-edge for some, didn't intend on hurting anyone's feelings. I'm dropping this here, in hopes that people who might've been affected like qwertz and khelmir were won't continue it themselves. Thanks for reading and commenting though, you two. Good to see people aren't afraid to express themselves just as I did.

Religion - A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion.

Xyphur, atheists are religious too. So are agnostics. They just don't believe in a single spiritual divinity or any such spirit.

Atheist was all you had to say. :)

I'm personally episcopalian. Woot woot.

Atheism is just a belief; it doesn't require zealous pursuit or devotion in any way.

There being no deity is the default, the starting point. It's the Christians making all the grand cliams.

You dont have to be religious to celebrate christmas. For most people, christmas is about santa claus and giving people gifts at the end of the year.

The festival at the time that is now Christmas was around for hundreds of years before the time of Christ. Neither Hanukah nor Yule are Christian celebrations.

But no, I don't celebrate Christmas.

Christmas is based on a pagan celebration of winter solstice:

Easter is the key Christian holiday, but also has pagan origins:
