Most Aspie's have more of a logical sense of mind and go with atheism however I'm interested to know if there's any of you out there who believe in the concept of "A Creator".
Like my views sway towards Panentheism as it doesn't rule out the concept of evolution/no God and it's kinda in the middle sort of thing.
Just curious to know other people's thoughts and views?

There are many Aspies on this site who believe in God. I'm not one of them.

I believe in a greater power, but I don't know if that counts.

At least in a broad sense, it counts, I believe.

I am a gay Aspie and I believe that God made me the way he wanted me to be.

I have seen quite a few people here who believe in God although they still seem to be the minority. There is even a priest that posts here sometimes. I think it's a lot to do with how you are raised rather than whether you have autism or not.

I am often times confused by the notion of ?God?. As an example, when I think about the teachings of my particular religion, the notion of ?God? goes far and beyond simply being ?A Creator?.

Furthermore, it seems like there?s a complex fabric of beliefs that go along with believing in a ?God?. Interestingly, it seems that this complex fabric of beliefs is highly personal (like people get to choose what aspects they believe in).

As a young aspie, I found this ?gray area? highly confusing. So, initially, I chose the rational path. To be an atheist. Later (in middle school), I realized that I should not be so rash. Since that time, I simply considered myself agnostic.

Little Britain is amazing. I was thinking that was what you were referring to from the first line in the post. I watch way too much Little Britain.

I don't believe in god, I don't care if others do, as long they don't try and make be believe what they believe.
