It's not. There are many who are neither Christian nor atheist.

Yeah, apparently the Jewish members aren't invited to this one.

This.  There are many ways to believe in Christ, not to mention a ton of other possible beliefs.

Don't the Jews acknowledge that there was a dude named Jesus, just not the son of God?  I'm probably wrong.  My Catholic school religion class education is 30+ years in my rear view mirror.

To be honest I was on the fence for a while, looked into it with an open mind. I don't believe the universe could just happen, and everything in it work as it does with a designer (sorry to add discussion in op, felt I needed to add this)

The Jesuit priest who taught me logic in high school would be gleefully stomping a mud hole in OP's ass right about now.

12 years of catholic schooling kind of turned me off to the whole idea.

So we either believe in OP's god or no god?  

Guess I'm a heathen then.

Being a scientist trying to understand the millions of reactions that happen in our body on a daily basis in order for us to have life, I find it hard to believe this all happens by chance.

So yes, I believe in God.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 11:54:54 AM EDT
I'm a filthy non believer.

That said, if I was to ever discover indisputable peer reviewed evidence to the contrary, I'd change my tune.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 11:55:31 AM EDT
I said no.  I know OP said he wasn't really looking for a debate, but I kinda want to get into it I was raised Catholic and decided a couple of years ago that belief in god was holding me back in a number of ways.  A few of my issues:

-Belief in god/heaven is the belief in being rewarded for your good behavior.  Because of this belief, nothing can truly be selfless.  Good should be done for the sake of being good, not belief in personal gain.
-Any god that damns/saves individuals based on how much they worship him rather than the content of their character is a god I wouldn't want to follow anyways.
-Belief in a higher power or "god's plan" is a cop-out to accepting reality.  Shit happens; if you don't like it then do something about it.  You should never be satisfied with a bad situation, and you should always be grateful to the tangible causes of success.  Don't thank god for healing your mom's cancer, thank the doctor that removed it.
-Lastly, there is no evidence that supports the existence of god, rather there is plenty of evidence of his absence.  Some may say that faith is an important part of religion, but I say bullshit.  Faith is a "feelz" approach to life's problems.  When faced with difficulties, your time would be better spent studying what has made our species so powerful: science and critical thinking.

The above is why I am an Atheist.  Some people may need god in their lives to maintain their morality, but I am not among them.  Scientifically speaking, there's a pretty good chance that when we die, we're dead.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Understanding that only helps me to value my time on this earth even more, understanding that I only have one shot at everything and that I need to make every moment count.

I believe in God, but I don't antagonize anyone that don't. People have no respect anymore.

So your faith is based purely on self interest.  I don't think it's supposed to work that way.
