Atheist...don't believe in any all powerfull imaginary friends or that all the answers can be found in a book corrupted over the years by empires and through incorrect translations.

Calvinist, member of the United Reformed Churches of North America. jonpowel: you seem uninformed, and ignorant, sorry, you really don't seem to know anything about God if you say that if he wanted us to worship him he'd make it that way. Umm..he does make it that way, that's why he gives us his holy spirit, so that we are able to worship him. Besides, you're his creature, He's the creator, he should be glorified! Praise Him!

Let's face it - we are all full of crap, everyone is very ignorant compared to the sum of human knowledge. Everyone is a hypocrite to some degree. What was it specifically you have against 99% of athiests ?

I am more amazed at the lack of lutherians & calvinists - maybe God's vicar is making a comeback

Uninformed. Thats a pretty christian attitude toward other people. Since i don't believe what you do I must be stupid eh. Just answer this one question and if you can I will believe in your GOd.

If God can see the future past and present then he knows who's going to hell and who is not. He knows everything we will ever do before we ever do it. So then why does he let people that are going to go to hell be created. Is it cause it gets him off or what.

Now Im not trying to put down your beliefs but you made fun of mine first. Face it if your God is real and all seeing then he must be pretty evil to punish someone for an eternity for something they did in such a short time as a life time.

Don't blame me for anything I misspelled I was educated in America.

I put other. I am just a Christian, I dont see any meaningful differences between Catholics, Lutherins, and Calvinists. (Although technically I would probably be a lutherin)

I'm a Christian, but I'm not really sure whether I'm more Lutheran or Calvinist. I've gone to baptist, pentacostal, and nazarene churches among a few others, but I wouldn't even group myself with any of those denominations.

I'm not ashamed of the One I love.

If you're going to group all atheists together, why not put all the sects of Christianity together? Then you could have added Islamic and Hinduist.
I don't see your reasoning. What other kinds of Atheists are there? Being an Atheist means one thing, you don't believe in a deity. Being involved in all the Christian and Islamic faiths have several issues regarding how you are supposed to live your life, what God wan's of you, etc.

Phew ! If this was true then there were a hell of a lot of dead people over nothing. Primarilly the main difference between the catholics & the protestants is of course that the catholics believe that only the pope can talk to god. This why you catholics go to confession - they talk to the priest who then supposidly passes the repentance of the sin up through the churches ranks to the pope who then tells God. The main difference (as far as I can see) between Lutharians & Calvinists is that Calvinists believe in a literal bible - also tend to be more ermm.. forceful about there faith.

If I remember rightly you are a Presbyterian - which I assume is the US branch of the origional Scottish Presbyterian church - which would make you a Calvinist.

As to why I didn't put hindus - only have 10 slots avalible & I havn't ever seen any here. If I had the slots I would also have included the Orthodox, Shia & Confustionist faiths.

There are no supreme deities.

I am an atheist. I have been an atheist since I was 12 years old. At that point in my young life, I made a decision that a lot of young people make. I chose to deny the existence of a deity. Over the years I have come to a realization that it matters not what others believe, so long as they have faith in their beliefs. A theist believes in something which makes him right in his mind. Only in his mind. This works the same way with atheists, and people of all faiths. I don't care what anyone says, the existence of a deity cannot be proven. I choose to deny that existence in hopes that one day the human race can move forward without the bonds of religion.

I always get drawn into these religious threads. I try not to... but... it's interesting to read the viewpoints of others.


One day I'll have something cleverer here.

I don't see your reasoning. What other types of Theists are there? Being a Theist means one thing, you believe in a single deity. <Etc>

There are atheist religions. Atheist means members of all religions who believe in no god, but also includes those who aren't in a religion and thus believe in no god. Say I have a religion, and I say that there is no god, and no outside force controlling you. When you die, you go to heaven (as long as you do x or something to that extent), and everyone lives in peace (idealistic anarchy). That would mean I am an atheist, but I would be religious.

"If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and if it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

I guess I'd fall into the 'other' category.

Those are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others.

I don't know, I am uncertain about what to believe. I need proof of something to know it exist, perhaps the only way I will believe is when I die and go to hell or just 'sleep forever'...heh.

For now I am Atheist.
