I have to say, I'm impressed by the variety of religious beliefs we seem to have here. Just to satisfy my curiosity, I'd love to see who believes what... at least among the people who are willing to post to this thread.
1) Theist, atheist, or agnostic:
2) Religion, if any:
3) Former religion(s), if any:
PLEASE KEEP ANY DEBATES OFF OF THIS THREAD. THERE'S ANOTHER THREAD FOR THAT.
1) Theist, atheist, or agnostic: Atheist
2) Religion, if any: None
3) Former religion(s), if any: Orthodox Christianity
2) emphatically none
1. Theist I guess, it's closer to what I believe than Agnostic.
2. No preference
3. Christianity, Mormonism, (Looking into Buddhism and Judaism, mostly to learn.)
I think there's truths in every single one of them, (Except blatantly ridiculous things like Pastafarianism, Jediism and Scientology) tbh. Really no sense in debating which one is "The most right".
1.Atheist/ Looking into Pastafarianism
2) Presently Christian, looking for somwhere to learn Hebrew to convert.
3) None so far.
1: probably agnostic
1: Atheist until proven wrong (which I've heard some people say is agnostic).
3: None, unless you count the usual "praying because my parents wanted me to" when I was a child, and even then, I never took any of that seriously.
Theist, but realistically I hang towards agnostic more if it's Einstein's definition of a Creator.
Nope, I've been one my entire life.
2. KindasortaBreslov Judaism
1) Atheist (though you can be an agnostic theist/atheist)
2) LaVeyan Satanist (though I only identify myself as such when trying to prove a point)
3) Christian Baptist
1) Theistic Agnostic
Hedonism is a religion?
Dude - if Scientology counts, I say Hedonism counts. Plus, it's the only thing I practice religiously. ^_^
Hey man, the Scientologists are pretty serious about... Cthulhu?
No. They are serious about Xenu. Put filth not on the name of our holy lord Cthulhu by associating it with such a religion!
First, you throw my fellow furries and I in the same boat with WC fans, and now THIS!? Why, Malk, Why do you aim to offend me so!?
Xenu is actually the Scientologist's version of the "devil", so while Xenu is SERIOUS BUSINESS, they don't worship or like him.
Someone should make a splinter sect of Scientology revering Xenu and teaching what a great galactic warlord he was and how he was just making the tough decisions to maintain order in those days.
I tried, but I got sued. I also don't know enough about Scientology. Wikileaks has failed to give me the full book.
2) Roman Catholic
1) Agnostic with atheistic leanings
1) Theist, atheist, or agnostic: Agnostic
3) Former religion(s), if any: Lutheran
I believe there is a God who I may or may not have discovered yet. I'm not an Orthodox Christian cause it would be hypocritical to claim such when I do nothing in my life to save my soul and reach theosis.
1) Theist (?)
2) I don't think so. The occult seems fucking retarded
3) Orthodox Christian but dunno if my faith ever was strong.
Funny how studying the religion and liking it more drove me away from it :(
By your definition, you're a Theistic Agnostic... just so you know.
2) not sure. I haven't seen any reason why I should believe a religion beyond a shadow of a doubt as most religions call for.
Morgan, what "variety of religious beliefs" did you see? :p
Judaism, Islam, a couple kinds of Christianity, Buddhism, and Satanism. Looking at the poll, it's obviously skewing towards 'none', but even so, I don't think any two people have the same answer to all three questions. I just think it's interesting... and hopefully I'm not offending anyone with my interest in a subject I no longer really have a personal stake in.
Aman and I had the same for all 3.
He said 'probably' and you didn't!
...okay, okay, I missed that. XD
Yeah,but it's not really accurate, ha ha, seeing how I'm Orthodox while you're a conservative. XD
3) Anglican Christianity, Buddhism
2) Anglican Christianity
2) Christian Non Denom
3) Former religion(s), if any: Catholic, Buddhist.
2. Trying to learn about other religions but not actually following any.
Really? Which ones are you considering?
I do believe that there is a higher power out there, not saying god per-say, but I do believe that there is someone/something watching over out lives.
2) Christianity (Just started getting back into the religion.)
2) Humanistic Buddhism (When I was little, now that I look at it that's definitely my former religion)
That's basic Theistic Agnosticism, Mtactical.
Oh well, I was just giving everyone some info about me.
Oh, I wasn't criticizing or anything - just helping people learn. As The Amazing Atheist points out on occasion, Agnostics tend to fall into the "Theistic" and "Atheistic" categories. I tend to believe Atheistic Agnostics are more reasonable than all-in Atheists. I mean - it's not like either side has proof for or against a God.
Yeah, I agree with you completely. There is no proof whatsoever about the existence of a higher power, and thanks for the extra knowledge, Lex.
No problem. :)
>As The Amazing Atheist points out on occasion
Anything you've ever said all ever will say on this forum has just lost all value to me.
I was appealing to his fans. Although he is often entertaining, I disagree with his hard-line stance on Evolution being an indisputable fact. Most everything else he says is pretty good, though. If that opinion has me lose value to you, so be it.
Evolution is an undisputable fact...
True. When people say that though, they are usually reffering to Macro Evolution, which hasn't been proven yet. (there's evidence for it, but nothing concrete, I believe)
Wikipedia article is confusing my few remaining brain cells.
Can you explain the difference between Macro, Micro and regular evolution?
Micro is, (from my understanding) evolution of animals/humans to adapt to their enviorment in small changes. That's what Darwin recorded on the galapagos.
Macro is the evolution from one species to another, like the proposed move from homo-____ to homo-_____ over time.
Evolution is a blanket term for both.
Thanks for the clear up.
I'm actually referring to the misappropriation of the word from its original form and intent to include adaptation to lend credence to what, by any account, is clearly a faith and not a science.
Evolution (which hasn't been proven) should only refer to the complete change of one species to a completely different one - say, fish into men. Adaptation is the only thing that can be proven... and not even full-on gay-bashing, redneck, sign-holding "Christians" would argue that fact.
I just can't take seriously anyone who watches a "man" like TTA. Yeah, he has some fair points but it doesn't change that he is a boring moronic fatass who boiled his microdick.
XD When did he boil his dick? That would've been hilarious.
Wait? You haven't seen the videos? They are glorious. I was into his vids back when I was 12 and I remember making him some Q and A or some shit like that and making jokes like "I was bullied cause I'm huge, everything on me is fat. Except my dick, that's tiny". He wasn't lying....
He literally has a video of him boiling that tiny thing and also spreading choco all over his private parts and then sticking a banana... fun times for our internet hero.
Who on Earth are you talking about?
A youtube vlogger.
Huh - I must've tuned in after he was done with the click-bait and had moved on to more respectable hot button issues. Oh well.
I guess we all have pasts, and they're all dreadfully embarrassing. ^_^
Nope, he was big on youtube, already doing shit about feminism, Libya, etc. He is just a perv.
Yeah, well James Franco loves t-girls and waifu pillows. Still find him intelligent and entertaining, though. ;)
The chimp guy? Meh.
Haven't seen much of him. He is into that waifu shit? I thought he was 2pretty4that.
Apparently no one is these days. It just depends on how low you're willing to go?... What the fuck is a waifu anyway? Is it what happens when someone thinks "Martial arts" and "Marital arts" are the same thing? (Because, Wife-Fu, right? OLOLOLOLO) Seriously, though, what the flying fuck is it?
Animu retards use "waifu" (from wife) to refer to real or (usually) fictional character they are in love with. And there are some anime pillows shaped like and with the faces of animu characters and they sleep with them. Get it?
Oh... Oh god that's scary... I got shivers....
From what I know of it, the pillows are waifus, anything more (resembling an actual body) is a dutch wife (or some other Japanese word), and the top-of-the-line are those Real Dolls (which actually look kinda neat - Link is NSFW). The entire gamut of customers (poor will get waifus, rich will get Real Dolls) is generally Japanese. I watch enough internetz to know about these things by mere reputation, even if I had no other interest.
Dude... That's a little far for CYS.
Now you responded to it and we have to wait for a mod to come online.
Guys, this was edit-locked by mistake.
DON'T CLICK THE LINK
Already did. 7 times.
Stop fapping and get back to forum-ing.
And the pillows aren't waifus btw. Waifu is just the girl, who happens to also come in pillow. This fine gentleman has a normal interaction with his waifu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwKkRzJ0GDs
Never seen or heard of that show. Looks trippy.
Archer is hilarious.
I second that sentiment.
Archer is even better than Futurama. It's like The Venture Bros. had a baby with Titan Maximum.
Gotta check it out then.
Please tell me that guy was joking. >_<
Hahahaha! The link is great Lee! Though, I don't recommend it for everyone on this site...
Don't link to NSFW sites.
My bad. Didn't know that was a thing here.
Meh, the post will just get deleted. Just don't post anything NSFW.
Cool. But everyone involved gets the gist of what I was saying, then... I hope.
I really want to spring into a debate about why god exists, but that's a story for another forum post
2) Christianity for eternity (not to sound like one of those stuck up kids we all know)
3) I used to believe that doctors had to cut babies out of every pregnant women's stomach (this is only a former belief)
1. Agnostic I guess
3. Catholic: Mainly because of parents
1.Theist (that means believes in one god, right?)
Monotheist is a believer of the existence of a singular god. Theist just means that one believes there is a god /gods.
So I AM a theist! Thanks for clearing it up, I didn't know that theist meant MONOtheist.
I am a dumbass
Still got it wrong.
Theists are people believe that an entity OR entities of power exist to as leaders OR creators of humanity.
Monotheists believe that only ONE entity created everything that exists.
Polytheists believe that at least more than one entity had a hand in making all that exists.
Let me just answer 1 and 2 in the same thing) I don't really know what to believe. It is hard to believe some divine being or beings created the world, but at the same time anything is possible. I think religions are social constructs that develop things like morals. If there is some truth in religion, then it probably is divided amongst all of them. I feel that it is a sort of arrogance to assume that one religion is the absolute truth. Given that most religious text were written by humans, there would have to be some fault there. I also don't like the idea of any divine being or beings being critical of people for not believing in it. If such a being(s) exists and punishes those who don't believe in it, then that being(s) are not worth worshipping. I doubt an afterlife, though the existence of one would comfort me a lot.
3) Although I never really believed in it, I was baptized and raised sort of Roman Catholic.
1) Theist, atheist, or agnostic: Theist
2) Religion, if any: Christian (Raised as a Northern Irish Baptist, which is different from the South American Baptist. Currently non-denominational)
