Legally I'm a catholic christian seeing as I was baptised and all that but in reality I have my own religious/philosophical view on life, the universe and everything which I started to develop since I was about 12.

I have serious problems understanding how anybody with at least a half decent education can believe in god or religion.

Religion was an effective means of controlling mass population when civilizations began to develop, it was an efficient way of keeping dumb peasants in check.

I pray each day (hehe) that I will live to see the day the science proves the non-existance of god.

I don't believe in god either but that doesn't mean I can't still be religious... I just think that there is more to this life then just the material plane which we percieve as reality. According to me, there is an entire spiritual plane (which doesn't have to have any relation towards any deity of any kind) which we cannot percieve with our senses but only with our mind and our ability to reason and think abstractly and it is around that plane that my religion is centered. Ergo, I'm perfectly religious without the need of a deity... :)

I was Baptised and currently go to a Catholic High School, but I tend to say i'm agnostic.

I was referring more to their proof of the non-existence of god in connection with the Babelfish actually...

What?!, Altavista's translation webpage has proved the non-existance of god :o ;)

We all know that God didnt create the Human Race with Adam and Eve - makind arrived on earth in the form of thinkers, do-ers ans middlemen!

I am an Atheist, and would be pretty close to what Pada1 said.

I am on a hot streak... Litterally.

Well, I'm no theologian, but I still think that argument is a load of dingo's kidneys. ;)

You gotta admit that the Hitchhikers people put up a pretty good arguement :P

Quote:
"The argument goes something like this: 'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'

" 'But,' says Man, 'the Babel fish proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments you don't. QED.'

" 'Oh dear,' says God, 'I hadn't though of that,' and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.


Tell m,e you can rwally argue with that, and would said God create somethnig that started so many wars like the book also said ;)

Gah! Why do we never get any religious members here? The result was the same when this topic first came up in 2000!

Maybe they are all too busy being religious, and have no time for computer games? :P

I doubt that anyone will see that day. It's close to impossible to prove that something "invisible" does not exist.

Considering that he said he would be coming back and that he didn't make any secret of his religion on other boards, I think I'm not breaking any ethical rulesby saying that he's a member of the Jehovah Witnesses.

For the record: I'm the member of the same religion as Tapuak.
