Just a quick question I thought might be interesting to ask here. I am an atheist myself, and have quite strong opinions on religion and its sociological consequences, and so I'd like to get an understanding of the users here

We don't need to have fervent arguments; this is by no means a thread to generate tensions or heated debate.

Just click on whatever best describes your beliefs!

Edit: Again, I don't want any debate for or against the matter, what this thread is geared towards is the statistics represented in the poll.

I think a greater power would make more sense than evolution. I don't believe in "God" but I do know that Jesus was a real person. And that said person was trolling thousands of years before us.

Well, that's the thing. Fiction has to make sense; the real world can be very convoluted.

Nahh, I'm quite intelligent.

I don't like the fact your poll assumes being an atheist means you dislike religion - admittedly that's the case for me, but it isn't for a lot of people.

just a picky thing i suppose, but being an atheist doesn't mean you oppose the idea of a deity. it just means you don't hold any kind of belief in a god. which usually include agnostic.

Not a fan of the idea of religion and I personally have no need for a God to believe in. I don't like labeling myself as an Atheist either. I am my own self with my own opinions, don't stamp a label on me bro!

Athiests are the worst kind of people. So laughable how they complain how about religious people ramming beliefs down peoples neck when as soon as there is a remote mention of Religion or God its all aboard the hate wagon and "Gods not real idiots lolol"

I can't tell if you're serious or not. There doesn't seem to be anything in there to indicate sarcasm, nor do the conditions under which you posted it...

... but you honestly cannot have said that with a straight-face.

page 2 and we are in a heated debate!

i dont think religions have any idea what theyre talking about when it comes to having a creator. so iv kept my distance from religion. im not ignorant enough to say there wasnt a creator, so iv kept my distance from aethiests. im open minded and like debating things for the fun of it, so i guess you can call me agnostic.
#26
Agnostic.

In the sense that I don't know whether there's some kind of general supernatural thing or deity. Not in the sense that I'm undecided about Christianity or any of the other major world religions I know anything about.

Atheist. I was raised pretty much entirely secularly, so the whole idea of a divine entity is somewhat nonsensical to me.

I guess you could say that. I see it as a personal belief system.

I reject the supernatural characteristics of God and believe that God exists inside of us, as evolutionary adaptations for altruism and empathy, and all around us, as the forces of a society more powerful than any individual guided by a collective human tendency to make a better world for everyone. God is the ideal of improving society for all over improving one's own position within society. Some might say that everyone is only out for themselves but I see those sort of actions as a reaction to the structural violence of inequality which works to threaten the position of people within society. As social creatures, we are naturally biased towards being more than self-interested actors and to do what we can to leave this world a better place than how we came into it. As such I believe that any rational human being should be swayed by www.actualsanity.com and understand that they are part of something larger than themselves.

I would like to believe there's some "higher power" that made all this and that you go to heaven or whatever, but it's just not that reasonable to believe. When you die, it'll be exactly like it was before you were born. You won't be there. Nothing of you will be so it won't matter. Either that, or reincarnation. LOLchina

I am probably Agnostic leaning towards Atheism. I certainly don't believe any of the main religions are true however I am open to the idea of a higher power of sorts
