Obviously I am, but I'm wondering what the majority of people here are. I always get shit from people when I say that I am an "a-theist", so I'm curious how many others there are. If you aren't comfortable talking about this, feel free to maintain your peace and silence. As always, thanks for reading.

I was agnostic until I realized I was wrong. I now have faith.

Congratulations! People always think that I'm against religion, which is completely wrong. Religion gives people hope, faith, and a sense of belonging. Oh, and I wouldn't say that you were wrong. You were 'misled' as some would say.

Edited to add, agnostic means you weren't sure. You just made up your mind.

Sure. There's a bunch of atheists here.

They're wrong.

But fine folks, nonetheless.

Not really atheist, just can't believe any of the current choices.

I'm wrong, too.

I was born into a sunworshiping cult. So I worship the sun. Some people here were born into their religion too and question not. Other's weight the facts, hard evidence and history.

I've been an atheist since I was maybe 12 years old. I have a few times lapsed in agnosticism, but that was years ago. I'm 28 now.

I started out going to a Baptist church when I was a kid. After my father died, I became an atheist. I did it because I was mad at God, not because I did not believe in him. After a while I became an agnostic, because it was the hip thing to be in high school. Stupid on my part. Now I have come back to my faith, and it's stronger than ever. Praise God.

One of my good friends was a rabid athiest. Now he's a youth minister.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I've decided to become an Odinist.

What does that make me? A polytheist?

...I don't exactly think that quoting your holy book is the best way to prove that your religion is right.

And I think that's a terrible sentiment, anyway.

Incorrect. The true agnostic believes that he is not capable of truly knowing if there is or is not a deity. Anybody who "isn't sure" is "not sure yet," no matter what religion they are.

I understand that I don't "convert" anyone.

Christians are messengers as well as pursuaders.

On a spiritial level, really.

My job is to deliver the messege ... and if they refuse, I don't get all negitive about it. However it does grieve me a bit.

My personal feelings are that of a love and compassion towards people, regardless.

God has His laws, and He will not break them for anyone. But He made the ultimate sacrifice.
