I know that many religious people are moral because it is the right thing to do.


I believe in doing good simply for being a good person trying to help people I care more for them that I dont even know well more then I do myself.

Rocky your a real nice guy zi like your point of views on things too your most helpful talking about it with you dont jump on me the way ValentineWiggin did :lol:

If you believe in reincarnation you believe you were born again and again and again...

I wonder if there are Christians on WP that may believe in reincarnation. I know it's not part of the Christian doctrine, but I know at least one Christian who hasn't ruled it out yet.

There are so many variations of Christianity I wouldn't be surprised. If you have faith you can believe anything.

I know that Shirley McClain, who got involved with the New Age movement, believes reincarnation is compatible with Christianity.

I am indifferent. For me, there can be some value in reading religious texts, in the same way that I have found value in reading other works. There clearly is value to some people in religion, and atheists presumably gain some psychological benefit in following, and preaching, their belief.

I believe that matter is made of tiny parts called atoms, which are in turn made of smaller parts. I have never seen these smaller parts, but believe they exist.

You could observe them if you wanted to, though.
