I cannot call what you have "beliefs". One believes in something that is provable. God is not provable.

I cannot be accused of mocking someone for their religion when they spit in the face of science. I am illuminating their ignorance for them.

Question: what are your religious beliefs?

I ask that people only answer if they want to, but DON'T harangue and harass people who are different. I'm tired of people calling my beliefs stupid and don't want that for anyone. So please, only make one post: about yourself.

I am a fundamentalist Bible believing Christian, young earth creationist, and a supporter of the Constitution party and NOT the Republican party. I do not separate my religious beliefs from any other, but weave them together attempting to be consistent in all aspects of my life.

I don't have a problem with religion at all personally, religion should be something personal for anyone, something to cherish in their own lives, and if you are very happy with it, that's great. But they shouldn't try to impose their beliefs to others. That's the problem I see, especially about fundamentalist christians that are against gay marriage and are against laws that protect homo/bisexuals from discrimination.

In my opinion they shouldn't be involve in politics and law and stuff like that, they should just limit themselves in their own churches, like other religions do.

And that is actually why you see that we are having problems you feel that some are harassed, it is an interesting issue with delicate matters.

Apatheist

I don't care if a god/gods exist and believe the question is fundamentally pointless.

The reasoning is simple - my daily life is unaffected by the existence/non-existence of an omnipotent being/beings.

And that simplicity is brilliant and eloquent.
